SCANDIANO, Italy, July, 2022 – E4 Computer Engineering SpA will partner with Ampere Computing to optimize and market high performance servers in the Ampere Altra processor family based on aarch64.
E4 Computer Engineering has a long history of designing and supplying new platforms for HPC, AI, HPDA to users in various parts of these markets. Ampere Computing offers Cloud- Native Processors that deliver predictable, high performing, scalable, and power efficient computing. The combination of E4’s domain experience in compute-intensive applications and Ampere Computing’s new platforms will result in a family of products that ensure the highest openness and interoperability of HPC, AI, and HPDA applications. community for on-premise and in the cloud.
Thanks to this collaboration, E4 Computer Engineering and Ampere Computing will work to improve a variety of products for demanding customers looking for a reliable, cost-effective and high-performance platform designed for accelerated computing. .
Specifically, E4 Computer Engineering will provide its customers with a new NVIDIA Arm HPC Developer Kit based on Ampere processors. It is a hardware and software platform combined with a heterogeneous GPU and CPU-accelerated computing system for creating, evaluating and benchmarking HPC, AI and computer science applications. The kit includes an Ampere processor, an NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU server, and the NVIDIA HPC SDK tool suite.
“E4 Computer Engineering has always been focused on technological importance in the field of HPC and AI, considering the most important values such as openness and interoperability”, explained Cosimo Gianfreda, CEO of E4 Computer Engineering – “Our products designed to keep end user needs in mind and with the goal of making these systems user-friendly, while providing maximum performance with the lowest TCO.The Ampere Computing partnership represents the opportunity to design new products and validating new technologies for growing markets.The Ampere Computing collaboration represents the opportunity to deliver new, innovative alternatives for growing compute-intensive markets ”.
“E4 is an ideal partner for our products,” said Sujan Kamran, Senior Director of Partner Sales at Ampere Computing. “Their experience in high-end platforms, as well as their in-depth knowledge of market needs, are critical to bringing our products to new applications. The E4 R&D laboratory will provide valuable insights and feedback based on their two decades of experience in compute intensive applications.We can provide products with the highest performance, shortest energy consumption and a set of development tools to facilitate end users with their applications.
“The collaboration between E4 Computer Engineering and Ampere Computing will help increase the number of HPC projects in the research and business world, contributing to an advanced, sustainable future,” said Rod Evans, EMEA Director of High Performance Computing and AI at NVIDIA. “Users can take advantage of the full potential of Ampere’s processor platform by integrating it with NVIDIA accelerators.”
