Tech GuideWhat is a Server? A Tech Guide by GIGABYTE
In the modern age, we enjoy an incredible amount of computing power—not because of any device that we own, but because of the servers we are connected to. They handle all our myriad requests, whether it is to send an email, play a game, or find a restaurant. They are the inventions that make our intrinsically connected age of digital information possible. But what, exactly, is a server? GIGABYTE Technology, an industry leader in high-performance servers, presents our latest Tech Guide. We delve into what a server is, how it works, and what exciting new breakthroughs GIGABYTE has made in the field of server solutions.
Success CaseGIGABYTE 5G and Edge Solutions at MWC 2021: The Servers of Choice for Taipei Music Center, ITRI and New Taipei Police, NVIDIA Aerial SDK
GIGABYTE’s E-Series Edge Servers are the highlight of MWC Barcelona 2021. This product line is the fruition of GIGABYTE’s long history of providing 5G and edge computing solutions for key clients, including Taipei Music Center, which wanted to stage VR concerts, and ITRI and New Taipei Police, which needed to maintain order during the Pokémon GO craze. The E251-U70, the first model in the E-Series, exemplifies industry know-how and design philosophy distilled from previous success cases. It has been chosen by NVIDIA to be part of its Aerial Developer Kit.
As CPUs and GPUs continue to advance, they consume more power and generate more heat. It is vital to keep temperature control in mind when purchasing servers. A good cooling solution keeps things running smoothly without hiking up the energy bill or requiring persistent maintenance. GIGABYTE Technology, an industry leader in high-performance servers, presents this tech guide to help you choose a suitable cooling solution. We analyze three popular options—air, liquid, immersion—and demonstrate what GIGABYTE can do for you.

Large scale events can lead to a sudden surge in crowds, creating cellular network congestion. Even if the user capacity of a cell tower user is upgraded, the network operator is still unable to cope with an abrupt increase in demand. In 2019 Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) therefore designed and built a “Private Cell Mobile Command Vehicle”, which can deploy a pre-5G private cellular network to avoid the problem of commercial network traffic jams. The vehicle provides the New Taipei City Police Department with smooth, uninterrupted cellular network service, allowing the police staff to remotely monitor real time footage of large scale events and deploy police resources where needed, increasing the efficiency of providing event security and safety. GIGABYTE’s H-Series High Density Servers are also helping to support ITRI’s “Private Cell Mobile Command Vehicle” by reducing the complexity of back-end infrastructure – each server combines computing, storage and networking into a single system, allowing for resources to be centralized and shared across different applications. The servers also optimize the use of time and manpower by combining and centralizing applications to simplify management procedures.
Edge Computing: computing performed physically or logically as close as possible to where data is created and commands are executed. Offering excellent advantages in latency reduction for applications relying on real-time decision making.
GIGABYT will illustrate the key functions and applications that made 5G a highly anticipated technology evolution, and the pivotal role MEC (Multi-access Edge Computing) plays in bringing 5G into our lives. Let’s take a digital tour to experience the splendid 5G future, enabled by GIGABYTE’s edge computing solutions!

Recently, 5G communications technology has been frequently talked about in relation to various major industries – it even seems that in order to keep up with technology trends, everything should be connected with 5G! When discussing 5G however, key features such as high bandwidth, low latency and high connection density must definitely be mentioned. As the coming of 5G will revolutionize our future lives, let’s understand more clearly about 5G directly from some real-world examples! And what key role does GIGABYTE play in this next generation communications technology?
When everything in the world becomes connected to the internet, human society will become a huge, highly intelligent organism. The “brain” of this organism will be the cloud, and its limbs will be a variety of end applications such as smart phones, AI-enabled robots, self-driving cars and smart factories.
5G communications has been a very hot topic in recent years. Due to some of the key attributes such as faster data transfer rate, low latency and high connectivity, people can start to develop applications including industry 4.0, autonomous cars, and build a smart city etc. However, until the day comes when 5G is widely applied in our everyday technologies, people still wonder what exactly is 5G? How is it different from 4G? Despite a proclaimed faster data transfer rate, how will it impact the next tech evolution?
