Get to know GPU Server, the Key to Building an Advanced AI Infrastructure

GPU Servers are in demand by many organizations that require high-performance server solutions to implement AI.  GPU servers are considered to be able to perform AI tasks efficiently compared to CPU servers in terms of parallel processing.   

Consisting of thousands of cores that can work simultaneously, GPU servers can handle complex AI workloads faster and more efficiently. From training AI models to optimizing algorithms and accelerating the inference process. So, to what extent does the server GPU play a role in optimizing AI implementation? Find out in this Virtus article. 

What is GPU Server?

GPU, or Graphics Processing Unit, is a type of computer processing unit specifically designed to handle graphics and visual data. GPUs were originally designed to control and accelerate the display of graphics on computer screens, including the rendering of 2D and 3D objects and other tasks related to computer graphics.  

Over time, GPUs have evolved into a much more versatile component than just graphics display. Today's GPUs have many parallel processing cores that enable calculations to be performed in a very short time. No doubt, GPUs are already widely used in various applications, including gaming, AI, and machine learning.  

GPUs have a different architecture from CPUs (central processing units), with a focus on efficient parallel processing, allowing GPUs to perform tasks that require repetitive calculations or tasks that can be parallelized very quickly. This is not possible for CPUs because they have high clock speeds and large memory caches, making them more suitable for tasks that require speed and sequential processing capabilities, such as running operating systems and general-purpose applications.  

In many cases, CPUs and GPUs are used together in modern computer systems, with the CPU performing general-purpose tasks and coordinating the activities of the GPU, which is responsible for intensive parallel processing. This allows computers to balance general-purpose and parallel processing to improve performance and efficiency. 

When to use GPU Server

As explained above, the use of GPU server is generally required for tasks that require high-speed intensive processing or scalable parallel processing. One of the most common uses for GPU Server is Machine Learning and Deep Learning model training and inference, as GPUs are highly efficient at performing mathematical calculations to train complex models in as little as hours, depending on complexity.  

In addition, server GPUs can accelerate the processing of tasks that involve big data analysis, streaming data processing, or real-time data processing. For example, geospatial analysis and real-time video analysis. Graphics rendering for visual effects, animation, and simulations can also take advantage of server GPUs. 

In the context of cybersecurity, server GPUs can be used to decode data flow and look for suspicious patterns in network traffic, crack passwords, or perform forensic analysis that requires fast computation.  

Now, it is important to understand that when choosing a GPU server for enterprise AI implementation, you need to consider your budget and computing needs, and ensure that the server supports the appropriate hardware or software. xFusion's FusionServer solution can be an excellent choice, specifically designed to support AI-intensive processing tasks, making it easier for you to maximize the use of this advanced technology.
