[Dusseldorf, Germany] June 22, 2018 - Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), a global data center solution provider, will showcase its latest purpose-built Intel® Xeon® Scalable accelerator server for AI and HPC computing - including the latest addition to the QuantaGrid series of servers – the QuantaGrid D52G-4U - currently supporting up to eight GPU accelerators optimized for different application at ISC High Performance 2018 from June 25.-27. 2018 in Frankfurt, Germany, in booth H-710.


QCT will showcase the following data center solutions that enable AI and HPC cloud infrastructures at ISC High Performance 2018:


  • QuantaGrid D52G-4U: A powerful accelerated computing platform that has the flexibility to be reconfigured for multiple topologies and is optimized for different workloads.
  • QuantaGrid D52BV-2U: A compact 2U 4x GPU server designed for workloads that require higher CPU-to-GPU ratio. It is perfect for specific AI workloads, such as inferencing, that require fewer GPUs. Check out our live AI medical use demonstration featuring the D52BV-2U at our booth.
  • QuantaGrid Q72D-2U: High-density, widely flexible, and powerful quad socket server in a compact 2U chassis ready for the most demanding enterprise or HPC applications.
  • QuantaGrid D52T-1ULH: Our high storage density 1U server ideal for Software Defined Storage with 12x 3.5" storage drives plus low latency NVMe SSDs to enhance caching performance.


Furthermore, QCT will have its QxSmart HPC/DL Solution on display at ISC. The solution is a scalable and validated solution that integrates adaptive hardware with the OpenHPCTM software stack and QCT’s workload packages to simplify deployment processes. 


The QxSmart Solution covers:


  • Industrial Applications -The workload packages cover molecular dynamics,

quantum chemistry, and climate modeling which cover the popular industrial applications used today.

  • The OpenHPCTM Software Stack - Pre-built with HPC integration in mind with a goal to provide re-usable building blocks for the HPC community. QCT has included everything from the community - from development tools to system management in its QxSmart solution.
  • Best-in-class Parallel File Systems - BeeGFS® and Lustre® cluster file systems have also been integrated our modularized architecture designs.


All of these pre-integrated solutions and comprehensive software tools are set on top of our proven infrastructure platforms to speed up productivity with intelligent workload management to achieve faster time-to-value.


“QCT’s mission is to enable our data center customers with the ability to run various workloads with ease of use and diversity of choices.” said Mike Yang, President of QCT. “We are honored to showcase our latest technologies and solutions at ISC again. This year we are bringing a broad hardware lineup and an integrated software stack to the market with the vision to fuse AI and HPC applications for our clients so they can gain a competitive edge in their market.”


For comprehensive information on QCT’s product lines and QxSmart, QCT will have a speaking session at the Exhibitor Forum (N-210) at ISC18 on June 27th, 2018 at 11:20am.  Our pre-sale account manager, Theo Luecke, will give a presentation titled “Simplify your HPC Implementation and Enhance Performance with QCT Solution” to deep dive into the QxSmart HPC/DL Solution and explain how it integrates with the complete product line.
