Product Overview Gigabyte G291-Z20 2U High Performance Computing System for 8x GPUs

AMD EPYC™ Processors: The New x86 Option
AMD’s return to the CPU segment delivers a whole new value proposition to the x86 world. Built on GIGABYTE’s extensive design expertise across a range of chipset platforms, this AMD EPYC™ platform is already receiving acclaim for its high specification:

• Memory.
• I/O.
• Network Connectivity.

This platform is intended as an alternative for builders in the x86 space and packs a real punch in flexibility and expansion options.

CPU Key Features
• Memory Optimization: Memory speed of up to 2666MHz (at 1DPC), Total memory capacity of 2TB supported.
• PCIe Lanes: Up to 128 lanes in both 1P and 2P offerings providing the highest expandability options of any x86 platform.
• Cores / Power: CPU power is managed at the core level, meaning that power is allocated only for specific workload needs.
• Security: Proprietary AMD security on chip.

Comprehensive I/O
• Both single- and dual-socket CPUs come equipped with 128x PCIe lanes, providing extensive I/O options. This is a huge improvement in I/O vs. incumbent x86 offerings.
• Increased I/O allows for flexibility in extending your storage, networking or compute to a level previously unattainable with standard server motherboards.
• In addition, the integrated nature of the processor – designed as a system-on-chip (SoC) - means that there is no need for a separate PCH and less additional switches needed for expansion lanes.

High Density HPC: Supports 8x Computing Cards
Able to support up to 8x double slot GPGPU or co-processor cards, the G291 enables world-leading HPC within a 2U chassis. The G291 is ideal for HPC applications such as real time analytics, programs in scientific simulation and modelling, engineering, visualization & rendering, data mining, and much more.

NVIDIA® Tesla® V100 Support
GIGABYTE’s AMD EPYC server systems and motherboards are fully compatible and qualified to use with NVIDIA®’s Tesla® V100 GPU, the world’s most advanced data center GPU ever built to accelerate AI, HPC, and graphics. Powered by NVIDIA’s Volta™ architecture and with 640 Tensor Cores, Tesla® V100 is the world’s first GPU to break the 100 teraflops (TFLOPS) barrier of deep learning performance — enabling data scientists, researchers, and engineers to tackle challenges that were once impossible.

High-Speed Networking
GIGABYTE offers 10Gb across dual ports on-board, ensuring that users can get the most out of their system and are well equipped for today’s traffic demands. The server’s network performance is boosted with full-line rate throughput and CPU overhead is reduced, leaving the EPYC to focus on the real compute tasks.

Dense, High Speed Storage Support: On-Board M.2
GIGABYTE AMD EPYC™ platforms are designed to support on-board ‘M.2’ storage devices for time-sensitive operations and leaves room on the standard storage for compute tasks. Delivering up to 32 Gb/s data transfer speeds, M.2 offers users considerably faster storage performance than current mSATA devices.

Data Security: TPM 2.0 Module*
GIGABYTE’s EPYC™ platform is designed to support Trusted Platform Modules (TPM - discrete cryptographic on-board processors).
(*Available from GIGABYTE as P/N: 9CTM000NR-00)

Carefully Selected Components
GIGABYTE’s passive components are meticulously selected to guarantee a super stable operating environment and allow the processors and the memory to deliver their maximum performance. GIGABYTE’s server motherboards are built with ultra long lasting components for the highest reliability attainable which allows us to offer some of the most durable servers in the industry.

Ease of Deployment and Management
GIGABYTE is always responsive to market needs and user-friendly solutions, including:

• Tool-less rail kit included as a default across all new server models.
• In-house designed proprietary tool-less sleds for 3.5” HDDs to allow for easy swapping*.
• Supplying multiple connector options and tools where appropriate.
*A full toolkit is included with SKUs designed for 2.5” HDDs.

Efficient, Reliable Power Supply
GIGABYTE SERVER AMD EPYC™ servers are designed to guarantee high conversion efficiency regardless of load. Redundant 80 Plus ‘Titanium’ or ‘Platinum’ PSUs, combined with GIGABYTE’s precision engineering, translates to super efficient power usage which maximizes the system’s power : performance ratio and reduces OPEX for the user.

GIGABYTE Server Management (GSM)
GIGABYTE Server Management (GSM) is GIGABYTE’s proprietary multiple server remote management software platform, available as a free download from each GIGABYTE server product page. GSM is compatible with either IPMI or Redfish (RESTful API) connection interfaces, and comprises the following sub-programs:

• GSM Server: A software program with an easy to use browser-based GUI to enable global remote monitoring and management of multiple GIGABYTE servers via each server node’s BMC.
• GSM CLI: A command-line interface program to enable global remote monitoring and management of multiple GIGABYTE servers via each server node’s BMC.
• GSM Agent*: A software program installed locally on each GIGABYTE server node that retrieves additional node information (CPU/Mem/HDD/PCI/…) from the OS and passes it to the BMC. This information can then be utilized by GSM Server or GSM CLI.
• GSM Mobile: A remote server management mobile APP, available for both Android and iOS.
• GSM Plugin: A plugin that allows the user to manage and monitor GIGABYTE server nodes within VMware’s vCenter.
*GSM Agent is currently compatible with Avocent MergePoint IPMI 2.0 BMC firmware, but not yet compatible with Megarac SP-X BMC firmware.

Intuitive & Informative User Interface
Starting from the GSM Server dashboard, the user can clearly understand the status of each node in the IT environment, including:

• Node connection status (system is online/offline).
• Node hardware sensor status (to detect hardware anomalies). Sensors measure voltage, fan speed and temperature.
• Node usage rate status (allowing you to timely allocate more resources when they are needed), including:
- Power consumption.
- Disk/RAID usage information.
- Memory usage rate.
- CPU usage rate.
- Network card / PCI information.

• The user can also perform various management functions, including:
• Node remote access:
- Power on / off / reset.
- Launch iKVM.
- Reboot BMC / BMC Account Configuration.
• Network Configuration:
- IPv4/IPv6 setting.
• Alert Management:
- SNMP trap setting.
- Platform events filters.
- Forwarding alerts by email.
• BMC / BIOS / CPLD Update.
• Power Consumption Limit Setting.
• Group Management:
- Create groups of nodes for BMC / BIOS update or manage power consumption settings.

GSM Mobile for iOS and Android
A GSM Mobile app is available for download for both iOS and Android mobile phones for remote server management on the go.

Management Through VMware vCenter
A GSM Plugin is available for VMware’s vCenter, allowing the user to perform remote monitoring and management of GIGABYTE server nodes without having to switch to a separate software platform.

GIGABYTE BMC Interface: Easy BIOS Upgrade
GIGABYTE has developed this integrated function (requiring no additional software) that allows users to update the BIOS of motherboards through the BMC controller:

• No need to install core components such as CPUs, memory, drives and OS.
• No need to power on the system (NB. PSU must be connected).
• Update individual (IPMI 2.0) or multiple boards simultaneously (Command Line).

Dynamic Fan Speed Control
GIGABYTE servers are enabled with dynamic fan speed adjustment. Individual fan speed will be automatically adjusted according to the system’s current temperature (according to CPU, DIMM, M.2, HDD, GPU temperature sensors), to achieve the best cooling and power efficiency. When the BMC detects a temperature change, fan speed will be automatically adjusted accordingly. Fan speed profiles may also be manually created and edited* when necessary according to the user’s custom requirements.
*Enabled on selected models & performed through BMC console management GUI.

Intelligent Power Management Features: SCMP (Smart Crises Management / Protection)
SCMP is a GIGABYTE patented feature that will automatically force the system’s CPU to enter ULFM (ultra-low frequency mode for minimum power consumption) when the BMC is alerted to a PSU fault or error (such as power loss, power surge, overheating or a fan problem). This feature will prevent shutdown in systems with less than 1 + 1 PSU redundancy when one PSU is lost. In a 2U 4 Node server, only two nodes will be switched to low power mode, while two remaining nodes can continue normal operation. When the fault is resolved or the PSU is replaced, the system will automatically return to normal power mode.

Environmental Compliance
GIGABYTE maintains its commitment to green products, and adheres to the latest RoHS regulations (in effect July 2017).
