Accelerate Your AI Deployment with Advantech SKY-5240 - Intel® Select Solutions for Simulation & Modeling


Advantech, the leading provider for industrial intelligent system, has provided its expertise in reliable and high performance server grade-IPC for over 30 years. Now Advantech has delivered the SKY-5240 server, a verified Intel® Select Solution for Simulation & Modeling. This enables users of the systems to benefit from experience in simulation and modeling markets with workload-optimized performance from 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors.

Simulation and Modeling is a Foundation of Innovation

Intel Select Solutions for Simulation & Modeling serve as a common foundation for the family of solutions and are designed for productivity, compatibility, and workload-optimized performance across a broad range of traditional HPC applications. Simulation and modeling can be the key element of success for manufacturing and research companies facing an increasingly competitive environment. It helps explore design parameters, reduce prototype costs, shorter time to market, and provide more innovative server to customer.

Many of these applications need to distribute computation across multiple machines that are configured to act as one large unit and provide faster results, finer grained models, and ultimately, higher productivity, compared to using a single system for simulation workloads.

However, the complexity between integration of hardware and software as well as the skills or expertise to deploy and maintain scalable, can present a barrier to adoption.

Advantech SKY-5240 Verified as Intel® Select Solutions for Simulation & Modeling

Intel Select Solutions for Simulation & Modeling are pre-validated and tested solutions for 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors. The solutions can help reduce the time and cost of building an scalability solution and are designed to provide optimized performance for simulation and modeling workloads. SKY-5240 is a verified Intel Select Solutions for Simulation & Modeling.
