A very sad server
[Image: R8QhlmV.jpg]

The inside of a GPU server at my office. If only it had a GPU or two or eleven....
Sadly it probably never will. Raritycry

It's basically a loss of interest from my boss. A bit over a year ago he was really wanting to do GPU cloud computing. He bought the server and a couple GPUs and soon lost interest. He took the GPUs and put them in his kids computers. The server has been sitting unused in our lab for the past year and I haven't heard him talk of it since. The system is fully functional except for the lack of cards in it. Has plenty of power: 4x 2000W PSUs. Would be a great addition to our team if it had the chance.

RE: A very sad server
As much as I'd like to see it put to good use, it's still work property so I'm not really comfortable with putting non work hardware in it. I think I'll bring the subject up with my boss and see if I can get him interested in trying it again.
