The convergence of AI and IoT, known as AIoT, is highlighting a significant change in intelligent computing and extending the opportunities that the Internet of Things has presented to modern electronic systems. For hardware vendors, the biggest challenges being faced are how to include a powerful CPU into a compact system deployed on the Edge while expanding GPU performance for inference applications – with no compromise on space.
Supermicro*, a leading server and storage solution provider worldwide, recently launched an AIoT system designed not only to process data but to accelerate diverse Cloud workloads, perform inferences, and reserve sufficient storage capacity for significant data saving or cache. The Supermicro SuperServer SYS-1019D-FHN13TP is an innovative platform featuring Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors and the ability to support dual 75W GPUs (Figure 1); the advanced system, mechanical and thermal design is based on Supermicro’s 25 years of expertise in manufacturing for complex environments.
