The SuperEdge NVIDIA MGX server also represents a milestone in the progression of Innodisk Group’s AI roadmap, extending from frontline sensors and storage devices to AI software tools, computing platforms, and now AI edge servers. The SuperEdge server delivers maximum performance within a compact form factor for edge computing and empowers enterprises to effectively handle sensitive data with private LLM (large language model) and other enterprise AI applications. It is particularly valuable in sectors such as finance and healthcare, where data privacy is paramount, and 5G telco, offering a compact, powerful and space-optimized system ideal for mission-critical applications and deployments.

NVIDIA MGX Server Accelerates On-premises Enterprise AI Deployment 

Enterprises are embracing the rapid transformations accelerated by generative AI. However, for industries that handle sensitive data, such as finance, biotech and medical research, cloud-based LLM services can pose potential operational and compliance risks. As a result, these enterprises urgently need a solution that allows LLMs to operate in a secure manner while balancing cost and performance according to their specific cases. 

In response to the increasing demand, Aetina unveils the AEX-2UA1, the enterprise-level edge server, to enable enterprises to deploy their private LLM AI training and inferencing on premises. This allows models to be trained using sensitive data and utilized securely to ensure compliance with strict regulations. 

Powered by technologies from NVIDIA and Intel, the AEX-2UA1 supports two double-deck GPUs with NVIDIA NVLink bridges and a single Intel® Xeon 6 processor, enhancing LLM training and inferencing performance with direct GPU-to-GPU interconnect to unleash powerful edge computing performance. Furthermore, the AEX-2UA1 supports advanced network solutions, including NVIDIA BlueField-3 DPUs and SuperNICs, and NVIDIA ConnectX7 NICs. This allows efficient server-to-server and server-to-storage communication for parallel processing in enterprises edge AI systems. 

Moreover, to address the space constraints of edge environments, the AEX-2UA1 features an x86 short-depth design. With front access and the compact form factor, it optimizes space utilization, making it suitable for deployments in both rack and non-rack locations. This versatility enables the deployment of diverse AI-driven applications wherever needed at the edge. 

Additionally, the AEX-2UA1 complies with the NVIDIA MGX architecture, offering a modular server architecture for maximum flexibility and forward compatibility, including support for NVIDIA Blackwell GPUs, delivering greater scalability for enterprises in the future.
