November 18, 2020 – RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.
Unprecedented Data Acceleration
Lenovo NeptuneTM liquid cooling reduces energy consumption by up to 40%2 while maintaining unprecedented compute power and density. Our intense focus on HPC innovation stems from our commitment to our customers, who are working to save human lives and helping solve some of humanity’s greatest challenges, said Scott Tease, General Manager, HPC and AI at Lenovo Data Center Group. As a result, Lenovo has been recognized as the #1 TOP500 supercomputer provider*, reflecting our commitment to groundbreaking innovation in HPC, Analytics and AI for businesses of any size.
Breakthrough AI innovation
To drive compute-intensive workloads, Lenovo introduces the new Lenovo ThinkSystem SR670 V2, a modular, GPU-rich system that supports up to eight NVIDIA® A100 Tensor Core GPUs or [NVIDIA T4__GPUs] in a single 3U frame, delivering up to 160 TFLOPS of compute performance.
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), a German research university, plans to implement a new 17 PFLOPS system, featuring warm-water cooled Nvidia A100 Ampere GPUs, with the help of Lenovo and business partner Pro-Com in the coming months.
Helping solve humanity’s greatest challenges
Using the Lenovo GOAST (Genomics Optimization and Scalability Tool) system configuration, scientists can leverage a validated, pre-configured bioinformatics solution built on high-performance, high-reliability Lenovo ThinkSystem servers. Traditionally, processing a whole genome (WGS) requires a time scale measured in days, but the Lenovo GOAST (Genomics Optimization and Scalability Tool) system configuration delivers results in just under an hour using standard x86 hardware.
