GIGABYTE Joins NVIDIA Certified Server and Releases Server: R282-Z96

Taipei, Taiwan, January 26th 2021 – GIGABYTE Technology, (TWSE: 2376), an industry leader in high-performance servers and workstations, today announced the R282-Z96, which is a well balanced approach for fast storage and high compute that is also one of five servers by GIGABYTE in the newly announced NVIDIA program named NVIDIA Certified. The program will help to ensure GIGABYTE servers are up and running quickly for AI workloads.

NVIDIA Certified:

Complex AI workloads, including clusters, are becoming more common and system integrators and IT staff must quickly adapt to the changing technology. In order to improve system compatibility and confidence, NVIDIA has introduced the NVIDIA Certified Program that validates servers based on hardware and NVIDIA NGC Catalog’s software. Currently the NVIDIA Certified systems focus on NVIDIA Ampere architecture and NVIDIA Mellanox network adapters, but the program will expand. As well, customers that are familiar with NVIDIA NGC Support Services can use the services for NVIDIA Certified.
