Phoenix, AZ, october 29, 2019 – phoenixNAP®, a global IT services provider offering security-focused cloud infrastructure, dedicated servers, colocation, and specialized Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) technology solutions, today announced availability of FlexServers, a revolutionary new bare metal server platform based on 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors. Enabling unprecedented agility for organizations to scale among seven different Intel Xeon Scalable CPU performance configurations with a reboot, FlexServers provide a new level of infrastructure efficiency.
Developed in collaboration with Intel, the FlexServers platform is built for data-driven organizations that handle intensive and evolving workloads such as high-performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence/deep learning (AI/DL), and machine learning (ML). Using a customized Intel Speed Select technology, the solution is unique in its ability to allow users to modulate CPU characteristics up to 7 different performance configurations simply by requesting a server reboot. With the ability to change CPU configurations without hardware updates or complex installations, organizations can improve the efficiency of their IT infrastructure and more flexibly plan their IT budgets.
“Collaborating with Intel for years, we are the first IT services provider to implement and present its configurable Intel Xeon processor technology to the public,” said Ian McClarty, president at phoenixNAP. “FlexServers utilize 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors with enhanced configuration flexibility to allow for vertical CPU scaling without hardware updates or migrating data. We can simply reboot a server per client’s demand and provide them with new capabilities in a matter of minutes.”
“Intel strives to introduce capabilities in our platforms that increase value for cloud service end-users and simplify their IT operations.” said Jason Grebe, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of the Cloud Platforms and Technology Group at Intel. “phoenixNAP is now offering our new, unique software-configurable 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors that enable users to precisely dial in the optimal performance level for their workloads and budget on the same server.”
Compared to the previous generation CPUs, the 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors provide a higher per core performance, new built-in AI acceleration with Intel Deep Learning Boost technology, plus support for greater memory capacity and speeds and, as a custom FlexServer option, support for Intel Optane DC persistent memory that additionally help in accelerating performance of data-hungry workloads. These features make FlexServers ideal for companies with highly dynamic and complex workloads such as high-transaction databases, deep learning, media, gaming or HPC.
As a global IT services provider, phoenixNAP enables deployment of these servers in five strategic global locations – Phoenix, AZ, Ashburn, VA, Chicago, IL, Amsterdam, NL, and Singapore. The available service configurations include dual processor (2S) servers with 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs with performance configurations ranging from 20 to 48 CPU cores and base frequencies from 2.1 to 2.7 GHz.
“With Intel Deep Learning Boost instruction sets, FlexServers provide a powerful platform for AI-focused inference workloads,” said William Bell Executive Vice President of Product at phoenixNAP, “At the same time, increased core counts and clock speeds of these Intel Xeon Scalable processors further improve performance of enterprise-focused applications and highly virtualized environments. We are thrilled to collaborate with Intel on this launch and be the first provider in the world to publicly offer a possibility of vertical CPU scaling on bare metal.”
“With the introduction of FlexServers we aim to provide unmatched value and flexibility not seen before on bare metal server platforms,” said Martin Wielomski, Director of Products – Infrastructure Services at phoenixNAP. “Flexible pricing options based on CPU scaling and our global deployments provide new level of agility to our clients not just on the technology level, but also from a business perspective as they enable them to run their operations with more confidence.”

San Jose, California, October 22, 2019 – Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI), a global leader in enterprise computing, storage, networking solutions, and green computing technology, now has NGC-Ready for Edge computing systems available for deployment. These servers complement Supermicro’s high-performance HGX data center servers and Kubernetes solutions, and the updated capabilities of the NVIDIA EGX platform will enable Supermicro’s customers to leverage their AI applications and management in a cloud-native environment.
“Utilizing NVIDIA’s EGX platform, Supermicro server customers can immediately support sophisticated and computation-intensive AI application workloads in the data center and at the network edge,” said Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro. “The 5019D-FN8TP, the 1019D-FHN13TP, and the 2029GP-TR supporting single or multiple NVIDIA T4 GPUs are validated as NGC-Ready for Edge. Collaboration with leading companies like NVIDIA reaffirms Supermicro’s heritage of offering best-in-class solutions.”
Supermicro’s green-computing edge servers are optimized to run AI workloads on the EGX stack with high-performance, efficient computing power. The E403-9D-16C-FN13T, as well as the new 1019P-FHN2T and E403-9P-FN2T, which bring Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors into Supermicro’s Edge server product portfolio, are currently in the NGC-Ready for Edge validation process.
“NGC-Ready for Edge validated Supermicro servers and the NVIDIA EGX stack can accelerate even the most demanding AI workloads at the edge with ease,” said Justin Boitano, Senior Director of Product, Enterprise and Edge at NVIDIA. “Now customers across every industry can develop new edge AI services to deliver automated intelligence at the point of action, from retail stores and manufacturing to hospitals and smart cities.”
Supermicro is already engaged with customers in proof-of-concept trials with AI IoT solutions powered by NVIDIA GPUs, including top-tier retailers for edge AI applications to speed their operations and improve customer experience, and with public transportation infrastructure agencies to monitor passenger safety in the field. The 5019D-FN8TP, the 1019D-FHN13TP, and the 2029GP-TR are all available now.
