AI training system with Intel Xeon W family processor

ICP Australia is introducing iEi’s GRAND-C422-20D AI training system with Intel Xeon W family processor and powerful PCIe expansion ability.

The GRAND-C422-20D is an AI training system which has maximum expansion ability to add in AI computing accelerator cards for AI model training or inference.

Powered by an advanced 14nm Intel Xeon W processor with an Integrated Intel C422 PCH, and up to 256GB DDR4 ECC RDIMM/LRDIMM RAM, the GRAND-C422-20D storage server delivers outstanding performance for data transmission and applications.

Storage spaces support up to 20 2.5-inch/3.5-inch SATA 6Gb/s drives, allowing for SATA hard drives and SSDs. Businesses can create the most cost-effective storage by implementing suitable drives based on their needs.

The AI training system GRAND-C442 is dedicated for these tasks because it offers a wide range of slots for storage expansion, acceleration cards and video capture, Thunderbolt or PoE add-on cards for unlimited data acquisition possibilities.

In order to develop a useful training model, existing and widely used deep learning training frameworks such as Caffe, Tensor-Flow or Apache MXNet are recommended. These facilitate the definition of the apt architecture and algorithms for a distinct AI application.

Key features include:

  • Intel Xeon W family processor supported
  • 6 x PCIe slot, up to four dual-width GPU cards
  • Water cooling system on CPU
  • Supports two U.2 SSD
  • Supports one M.2 SSD M-Key slot (NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4)
  • Support 10GbE network
  • IPMI remote management
