IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Advantech — the global leader of embedded, industrial, IoT and automation solution platforms – is pleased to announce that it launched a broad selection of rackmount GPU Servers from 1U to 4U. The SKY-6000 GPU server series is powered by dual Intel® Xeon® scalable processors and each of these highly scalable GPU-optimized servers supports up to five NVIDIA® Tesla® P4 GPUs. Every GPU pair includes one high-speed PCIe slot for highly parallel applications like artificial intelligence (AI), deep learning, self-driving cars, smart city applications, health care, high performance computing (HPC), virtual reality and much more.

AI Deep Learning GPU SolutionWith support for up to five pcs of half-height half-length (HHHL) GPU cards or one full-height full-length (FHFL) double deck card and one full-height half-length (FHHL) GPU card, the SKY-6100 is designed for NVIDIA Tesla P4 HHHL GPU cards, making it the best choice for deep learning applications.

IPMI Server ManagementWith IPMI 2.0 support and event logs that record important information about the server, SKY-6000 allows users to monitor, manage and control servers remotely and receive alerts if any sensors detect device or component faults.

Smart FAN Control The optimized thermal design of the SKY-6000 series GPU servers separates CPU and GPU fan zones, ensuring the GPU card is not preheated or thermally affected by any other heat source. With the smart fan control mechanism, fan speeds are controlled based on different CPU and GPU workloads and ambient temperatures.
