We are looking to build a powerful imagery processing server.
We currently have two Dell PowerEdge R620 dual Xeon servers, each with 128gb of RAM. Still many of our jobs take weeks to process. We are hoping to increase the amount of data we collect and process next year.
This Dell PowerEdge R620 technical document, on pages 18/19, declares the R620’s compatibility with an external device called a “C410x”, which is essentially an external enclosure housing 16 nVidia Tesla m2070 cards.
Would any portion of the Pix4d imagery processing workflow benefit from the addition of a c410 device? Are we better off purchasing addition R620 servers instead, if cost was not a factor?
