Atipa Technologies | November 20, 2020
Today, Atipa Technologies, a main supplier of superior registering and capacity arrangements, reported the dispatch of the Atipa Procyon G-Series profound learning and elite figuring stage fueled by the most recent NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU based on NVIDIA Ampere design, and utilizing AI holders, models and structures from the NVIDIA NGC list.
Information researchers and analysts require profound learning systems to change enormous informational indexes into usable data that can be adequately used for logical reproductions. Introducing and keeping up, these structures and conditions require time and aptitude that may not be effectively accessible to specialists.
Atipa Procyon G-arrangement workers permit clients simple admittance to the NGC list for GPU-streamlined applications for profound learning, AI, and superior processing (HPC). Supporting up to eight GPUs per worker and offering adaptable decisions for GPU-to-GPU correspondence, quick NVMe streak stockpiling, and low-dormancy, high-transmission capacity NVIDIA Mellanox HDR 200Gb/s InfiniBand organizing, the Atipa Procyon G-arrangement family gives exceptional execution and configurability. Single or double AMD Epyc™ processors empower full PCIe Gen 4 help, multiplying the transfer speed among GPUs and among GPUs and CPUs contrasted with the past age Atipa Procyon workers.
"The ability to download containers with popular frameworks such as TensorFlow and Caffe, or high-performance computing applications such as Gromacs and LAMMPS, pre-installed with all necessary libraries and dependencies is an enormous time saver for IT staff," says Bart Willems, Technology Director at Atipa Technologies. "By using NGC containers on Atipa Procyon G-series servers, scientists further benefit from continued updates and performance optimizations by NVIDIA GPU-optimization experts."
"Time is everything for researchers, and getting to a solution depends on many factors: simulation time, but also time to build, install and optimize applications," said Paresh Kharya, senior director of product management and marketing for Accelerated Computing at NVIDIA. "The Atipa servers with A100 GPUs built on NVIDIA Ampere architecture leverage NGC to enable scientists and researchers to more easily access the power of GPU acceleration to produce results."
