In a video on YouTube, which has since been rapidly eliminated, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) opened the can a bit early on asserting a brand new twin socket AMD EPYC based mostly system in a 2U kind issue. As identified over at ServeTheHome, this is a vital metric within the EPYC story: it is among the first machines from a high three server gear producer.
Earlier than the video was eliminated, it confirmed a dual-socket design with a full set of reminiscence slots (that’s 32x, supporting a complete of 4TB). Leveraging the 128 PCIe lanes that the configuration would deliver, the DL385 Gen10 confirmed help for as much as 24 NVMe drives (or 30 2.5” SATA SSDs) in addition to both three double-wide GPUs or 5 single-slot GPUs. The goal for such a server appears to be a crossover between storage and compute, or the power to keep up fixed compute throughput with loads of reminiscence and quick native storage, comparable to giant datasets for AI or deep studying community coaching. Redundant energy provides and HPE iLO administration are additionally featured.
In AMD’s press launch for this week’s Supercomputing 17 occasion, HPE was listed as one of many distributors now prepared to begin providing availability of EPYC-based techniques, now that the main cloud and internet hosting suppliers are attending to grips with the know-how. HPE VP and GM, Justin Hotard, was quoted in AMD’s press launch, saying that ‘AMD delivers the facility … to assist break obstacles’, however no official or particular merchandise have been talked about within the quote given to AMD. Alongside these traces, we’d count on HPE to have its personal announcement, in all probability this week as it’s SuperComputing, though posting/deposting a video says lots.
We suspect that when HPE pull the right set off on the launch, the video shall be re-enabled and information sheets will begin flowing. We are going to report when it occurs, however right here’s the video embed in case it comes on-line quickly.
