Partitioning” occurs when the CPUs on a server are separated into individual sections where each section acts as a separate system. Sometimes this is called “segmenting.” There are several hardware and software virtualization technologies available that deliver partitioning capabilities, with varying degree of resource allocation flexibility. The purpose of this policy document is to define which of these partitioning technologies is deemed to be Soft, Hard or an Oracle Trusted Partition, and under what conditions Oracle permits them as a means to determine or limit the number of Oracle Processor licenses required for a given server, i.e., to license a sub-capacity of total physical cores as an exception from the contractual Oracle Processor definition. Oracle may modify the definitions and conditions specified in this document from time to time.

Henderson Engineers and Torch.AI Test New AI for Building Systems Design

Torch.AI | September 06, 2022

Torch.AI, pioneers of Data Infrastructure AI™, is testing a new artificial intelligence application with Henderson Engineers, a national building systems design firm, to unlock the creative and problem solving potential of the firm's more than 1,000 employees. Henderson, one of the world's most prominent and successful building systems design and engineering firms, works on projects across the business, community, health, retail, and venue sectors, including many high-profile projects, such as SoFi Stadium, host site for the 2022 Super Bowl. The construction & engineering industry is known for sophisticated projects spanning huge supplier networks, strict building design standards, detailed job planning efforts, and tight margins. The industry relies on highly complex information contained in equally complex unstructured data: drawings, images, PDFs, handwriting, raw text. Earlier this year, Henderson began testing new artificial intelligence from Torch.AI that could learn to read complex construction and engineering documents and diagrams. Past construction & engineering data sets were used to quickly train the AI with more than 340 million parameters and growing, which in turn creates new opportunities for automation and data sharing. The Torch.AI system has already read roughly 100,000 engineering drawings with remarkable accuracy. In one example, in less than one second the AI is able to identify, extract, and compare diagrams from 40+ page project files with an average accuracy of 98.9%. Torch.AI's software helps unlock human potential by removing impediments to creativity and problem solving, namely mundane tasks created by the explosion of enterprise data and ever-increasing gaps in technology. The software begins by instantly figuring out what the data is and how it can be useful, then applies advanced machine learning to automate the steps necessary to deliver new insights and support decisions; all without human intervention. "When Kevin Lewis, Henderson's CEO, and I got together to first discuss the partnership, I could tell they were already thinking way ahead of everyone else. "As an engineering firm they are meticulous, thoughtful, strategic. We quickly saw the potential impact these new AI systems could have for their amazingly talented teams and are excited to continue growing our relationship." Brian Weaver, Chairman and CEO of Torch.AI About Torch.AI Torch.AI, the Data Infrastructure AI™ Pioneers, are headquartered in Kansas City with offices in Washington, DC. The company developed the use of AI to process data in-flight, radically evolving analytic and operational capabilities in any IT environment. Torch.AI's products and people are currently actively supporting operations in industries including financial services & insurance, construction and engineering, healthcare, and the US Department of Defense, US Department of Homeland Security, and other agencies. About Henderson Engineers Henderson Engineers provides a wide array of building system design engineering services across a variety of building types, specializing in five market sectors: Business, Community, Health, Retail, and Venue. Their sister company, Henderson Building Solutions, is a turnkey construction management and commissioning services firm that provides a seamless bridge between design, construction, and ongoing maintenance. Together as Henderson Companies, they provide single source solutions for any project.

Cycle.io’s Low-Ops Developer Platform Adds NVIDIA GPU Support

Cycle.io | August 04, 2022

Cycle.io, an up-and-coming low-ops application deployment platform, is thrilled to announce the support for NVIDIA’s data center-class line of GPUs. This enhancement of the platform enables developers to build GPU-accelerated applications which require a high level of computing power for scientific and engineering purposes: One Platform With Batteries Included: Cycle provides all the necessary features development teams need to deploy, scale, and monitor everything from basic websites to complex SaaS and PaaS applications. Multi-Cloud Container Orchestration: Enables developers to use the tools and technologies they’re already familiar with across multiple cloud providers in parallel. Ultra-Current Infrastructure With Control: Organizations are able to maintain control and ownership of their infrastructure while the Cycle platform ensures that all servers are always current, with the latest updates being deployed on a semi-weekly basis. Turnkey Team Collaboration: Easily add and remove developers from your team, and infrastructure, all with a few clicks. Cycle makes it easy for developers to gain observability over the individual components that make up today’s modern applications. The launch of Cycle’s GPU support coincides with Vultr’s release of their new GPU-line of cloud servers, built upon the NVIDIA A100 GPU. Vultr, a leading independent provider of cloud infrastructure, provides both virtualized and bare-metal cloud infrastructure across 20 regions globally. Through the Cycle.io and Vultr partnership, developers can easily deploy performance-sensitive, GPU-dependent applications at a price point that makes sense for all use cases. “Because of the additional power of a massively parallel architecture, GPUs make it possible to handle multiple tasks simultaneously, giving developers more compute power. There is a growing need for GPU parallel processing by developers of AI and Machine Learning big-data intensive solutions. With containers, this has been very difficult for the architect. But with our new partnership alongside Vultr, Cycle is making this simple to do for developers.” Jake Warner, CEO, and Founder of Cycle.io. “We greatly value our partnership with Cycle. Now that Vultr is offering VMs and bare metal accelerated with NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs, customers can use Cycle and Vultr together to easily run containers for deep learning, high-performance computing, and data analytics workloads,” said J.J. Kardwell, CEO of Vultr’s parent company, Constant. About Cycle Cycle is the all-in-one low-ops platform built for deploying, scaling, and monitoring your websites, backends, and APIs. With automatic platform updates, standardized deployments, a powerful API, and bottleneck crushing automation—the platform offers batteries included, and no DevOps team is required. Founded in 2015, the company is headquartered in Reno, NV.
