Servers & Systems: The Right Compute

Visual Compute Acceleration for the surging growth of multimedia creations


Get ready to rev your multimedia engines! The ProLiant ML 350 with the Quadro GV100 is the ideal deep learning solution for providing the extreme compute power necessary for designers, engineers, and others to rapidly create with high visual fidelity.

hpe-deep-learning-solutions-ml350-gen10.jpgDo you need to create animations and multimedia solutions but need lots of expandability, like a family-sized SUV; security like a Brinks armored truck; and performance like a Bugatti Veyron?

Look no further.  The HPE ProLiant ML350 Gen10 Server with newly-added support for the NVIDIA® Quadro® GV100 and NVIDIA NVLink interconnect technology is up to the challenge.

ProLiant’s most powerful and versatile 2P tower

You probably already know that the ProLiant ML350 Gen10 Server offers the best performance and expandability in the HPE ProLiant tower portfolio, and it supports two Intel Xeon Scalable processors that give it up to a 71% performance boost [1]. It also delivers up to 3.9x higher virtualized throughput, and more VMs per server2.  Additionally, it features large expansion capacity with eight high-performance PCIe slots that can accommodate up to 24 drives. If you are concerned about your carbon footprint, the ML350 has also achieved the world record result among 2P tower servers for energy efficiency3. Finally, the ML350 Gen10 is built with iL0 5’s silicon root of trust making the HPE ProLiant Gen10 portfolio the world’s most secure industry standard servers4.

Customers love the ML350 for workloads like virtualization, storage and backup, and multi-function—which means running file and print, network functions, and virtualization on the same server. They can also use it for big data analytics, VDI, and other graphics-intensive apps like medical imaging and multimedia.

Advanced visual computing architecture

Now with the total solution of the HPE ProLiant ML350 Gen10 Server, the Quadro GV100 and NVLink, you can experience real-time ray tracing, simulation, and AI-based computing and acceleration. In addition, users can:

  • Create a massive visual computing solution by connecting up to four Quadro GV100 GPUs with NVLink, for even greater memory and compute.
  • Drive the most detailed and lifelike virtual reality experiences
  • Enjoy advanced multi-display technologies for image synchronization and resolution scaling

The Quadro GV100 with NVLink delivers new capabilities in deep learning, rendering and simulation -- allowing businesses to innovate without restriction,” says Bob Pette, VP Professional Visualization, NVIDIA. “The ProLiant ML 350 with the Quadro GV100 is the ideal deep learning platform while providing the extreme power necessary for designers, engineers and others to create with high visual fidelity and obtain fast results.”
