Enables Powerful Nvidia T4 GPU Accelerators in Dell EMC PowerEdge MX
Amulet Hotkey Ltd., a leader in design, manufacturing and system integration for remote physical and virtual workstation solutions, announced that it will unveil its powerful CoreModule GPU acceleration solution for Dell EMC PowerEdge MX kinetic infrastructure at VMworld in San Francisco on Aug. 25-29, 2019.
Powerful NVIDIA T4 data center GPUs can be used in the Dell EMC PowerEdge MX architecture. The PowerEdge MX, based on Dell EMC’s kinetic infrastructure, is a 7U modular platform designed for the software-defined data center with customizable modules of compute, storage and networking.
Amulet Hotkey’s solution combines the scalability of the PowerEdge MX with the latest Turing GPU architecture of the NVIDIA T4 GPU and VMware virtualization. With NVIDIA’s GPU virtualization software, Quadro virtual Data Center and GRID vPC, the solution supports professional workstations for artists and designers and the best user experience for VDI users.
“The Amulet Hotkey CoreModule is an innovative platform that brings NVIDIA GPU acceleration to PowerEdge MX, building on the success of highly optimized Amulet Hotkey GPU solutions across multiple generations of modular servers,” said Stewart Holness, executive chairman, Amulet Hotkey Ltd. “The combination of the PowerEdge MX architecture and NVIDIA T4 GPUs offers customers the flexibility to virtualize graphics-intensive workflows and enhance user experiences.”
“Dell EMC PowerEdge MX enables a modular approach to flexibly build and combine compute, storage and networking, so organizations can transform their IT in a way that optimizes resources and offers investment protection for future generations of technological advances,” said Rajesh Pohani, vice president of product management, Server and Infrastructure Systems, Dell EMC. “Amulet Hotkey extends those capabilities with VMware to include virtualized NVIDIA T4 GPU acceleration for workloads such as virtual desktop infrastructure.”
To maintain the density and efficiency of the PowerEdge MX modular platform, Amulet Hotkey offers a unique solution for integrating up to sixteen NVIDIA GPUs into MX7000 chassis Fabric B, retaining all eight front bays for storage and compute sleds.
“At Amulet Hotkey we understand that customers who are looking to add GPUs to modular platforms do not want to sacrifice density simply to add GPU accelerators,” said Richard Newell, Senior Design Engineer, Amulet Hotkey Ltd. “We designed the CoreModule to fit powerful NVIDIA GPU accelerators within the Dell MX7000 chassis to retain the benefits of the modular architecture.”
Amulet Hotkey’s long-standing relationship with the Dell Technologies OEM Embedded & Edge Solutions group ensure tight integration with Dell EMC engineering and design, ensuring compatible designs and tight integration at both physical and management layers.
Teradici and Amulet Hotkey maintain a long-standing collaboration in providing joint customers with graphics-intensive workloads high-performance physical and virtual workstations solutions based on Teradici PCoIP technology.
“Amulet Hotkey has established expertise in providing virtual workstation solutions for high-security and high-demand applications,” said David Smith, CEO for Teradici. “As the adoption of virtualization within demanding IT environments continues to accelerate, customers working within organizations dealing with specialized needs for resource-intensive and high-security applications are looking to vendors with the expertise to match these requirements, and partners like Amulet Hotkey become a critical part of ensuring their specialized remote access deployments are successful.”
