Inspur Edge AI Servers Now Supporting NVIDIA EGX Platform
January 3, 2020 News


Inspur announced its edge computing servers NE5260M5 and NF5280M5 now support the NVIDIA EGX, a high-performance cloud native platform, recently at GTC China 2019. The servers have also achieved the NGC-Ready for Edge certification, which, in linking with the NVIDIA EGX stack optimised for edge computing, allowing customers to quickly deploy and efficiently run AI workloads in edge and micro data centres.

The combination of the Inspur edge servers and NVIDIA EGX platform which enables AI computing, edge computing and container clouds, helps customers build efficient cloud-to-edge AI infrastructure, allowing AI to go further in transformation into industries and users’ lives at large. The NGC-Ready for Edge certified Inspur AI servers and NVIDIA EGX stack are able to operate the most demanding edge AI workloads and development of new edge AI services for customers in various industries, and also deliver real-time intelligence in retail stores, manufacturing plants, hospitals, and smart cities.

The two servers are specifically designed for edge computing scenarios which was announced at the conference. Among them, NE5260M5 is only 1/2 the size of a standard 2U server and can be wall mounted. Small but highly scalable, it can be equipped with up to 6 Tesla T4 GPUs, which guarantees sufficient performance to meet the needs of various edge AI applications, and has been implemented by the China Mobile Research Institute in large-scale applications in edge computing pilot and test scenarios. Furthermore, the NF5280M5 features Inspur’s proprietary spatial layering technology and extremely flexible configuration. With unique I/O expansion modules, it can equip up to 8 Tesla T4 GPUs, making it ideal for complex compute-intensive AI workloads at the edge of networks.

In addition to announcing the support of the edge servers for NVIDIA EGX, Inspur also showcased an extensive range of AI server arrays at GTC China. At present, with AI servers that fully address data centers and edge computing and the ability to develop AI algorithms and management software, Inspur is ready to deliver full-stack AI solutions to its customers.
