- Who We Are
A public research university needed a high-performance computer to create experimental controls, which are used in scientific research to minimize the influence of extraneous variables on dependent variables.
The customer chose Trenton for one main reason: we're known for configuring our boards with lots of PCIe slots, which the customer needed to utilize for their research.
The customer's primary pain point was adding a backplane with lots of PCIe Gen 3 slots to their existing computer system.
However, the customer ultimately decided that configuring an entirely new server solution was the right choice for their application.
More specifically, the customer decided on a dual-processor-board solution paired with a midsize backplane capable of hosting at least eight PCIe Gen 3 slots to support their SSDs and NVIDIA GPUs.
Other pain points included equipping the system with Intel Xeon CPUs capable of effectively supporting the customer's NVIDIA GPUs and acquiring 64GB of RAM to ensure smooth application performance overall.
Midway through the deal, Trenton Systems discovered that the customer's NVIDIA GPUs had reached end-of-life.
Trenton's dedicated team of in-house field application engineers (FAEs) recommended a replacement and ensured that the new NVIDIA GPU model was a suitable option for the customer's controlled experiment application.
Trenton's FAEs also worked with the customer to secure capable but budget-friendly Intel Xeon CPUs to adequately support their now-configured high-performance server solution.
