AMD EPYC™ Processor Support for Microsoft’s Project Olympus Adds Radeon™ Instinct GPU Acceleration

0 0 7,057

This week at the Open Compute EU Summit in Amsterdam I had the pleasure of rolling out along with ZT Systems and Microsoft, a powerful new addition to the AMD EPYC processor ecosystem. A leading provider to hyperscale datacenters, ZT Systems delivers outstanding performance and value for GPU computing and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) with their new expansion system built on AMD Radeon Instinct GPUs. The support of Microsoft and its Project Olympus platform is the underlying foundation that ties the solution together.

Enterprises are quickly moving some or all visualization workloads to the cloud.  Be it classic workstation workloads delivering design and manufacturing applications for CAD/CAE or just plain old Windows 10. Being able to deliver high-end applications and Windows desktops from servers in the cloud lets modern business bemore efficient and nimbler, with greater control.


The XPO200 3U PCIe Expansion System is designed to deliver outstanding flexibility and scale-out GPU computing, as well as highly cost effective VDI solutions, via AMD Radeon Instinct MI25 GPUs and EPYC CPUs.


AMD’s GPUs for the cloud have been purpose-built to optimally virtualize and deliver these workloads.  Using a built-in virtualization engine, based on the PCI spec SR-IOV (Single Root IO Virtualization), the GPUs deliver persistent quality of service making it easier to deploy and manage.


With up to 32 cores and 64 threads, 8 memory channels with up to 2 TB of memory per socket, and 128 PCIe lanes, AMD EPYC CPU is designed  to deliver the connectivity, memory capacity and VM density for GPU accelerated workloads.
