Penguin Computing announces Altus servers with AMD EPYC 7000 series high performance processors

20 Sep 2017 Fremont - Penguin Computing has announced the return of its Altus line of servers with AMD's new EPYC high performance processors. The versatile and power-efficient EPYC processor-based Altus systems are available in standard 19" and 21" Tundra Extreme Scale designs.

"Penguin Computing has a long history of building systems featuring AMD processors going back to the first K7 and Opteron processors", stated Philip Pokorny, Chief Technical Officer, Penguin Computing. "Our customers have been asking for upgrades to their existing Opteron systems and these new EPYC processors are a huge leap forward. The PCI-Express and memory capabilities of these new processors enable us to build exciting new system configurations and enhance our existing designs. The high core counts help AI researchers looking to run, generate and test millions of training scenarios. The large memory capability is welcomed by HPC and Internet customers with applications requiring it for key tasks and caches."

The Penguin Computing Altus server platform provides new capabilities for data centre solutions by offering a multitude of EPYC processor-based options, including 1U, 2U, single-processor, dual-processor, 2U quad-node, GPU and Tundra form factors. The feature-rich design of the AMD EPYC processor gives customers expanded options to scale by providing support for single and dual socket servers, scaling between 8- to 32-core, 8 memory channels capable of supporting up to 4TB of memory capacity, 128 lanes of PCIe Gen3 high-speed I/O, and embedded silicon-level data security. AMD EPYC processors can support workloads ranging from High Performance Computing to Machine Learning. Additionally, Tundra can take advantage of 128 lanes of PCIe to support up to four NVIDIA Tesla GPUs in a 1OU form factor running in either single or dual socket configuration.

"AMD is excited to continue the long and productive relationship with Penguin Computing by introducing the EPYC 7000-series of server processors to the Altus line-up", stated Scott Aylor, corporate vice president of enterprise solutions at AMD. "This broad portfolio of new systems is a testament to both the power and versatility of EPYC and the strength of Penguin Computing in the high-performance server market."
