NVIDIA DGX Station A100 Offers Researchers AI Data-Center-in-a-Box
World’s Only Petascale Integrated AI Workgroup Server, Second-Gen DGX Station Packs Four NVIDIA A100 GPUs, Debuts with up to 320GB of GPU Memory to Bring AI into Offices and Labs
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SC20—NVIDIA today announced the NVIDIA DGX Station™ A100 — the world’s only petascale workgroup server. The second generation of the groundbreaking AI system, DGX Station A100 accelerates demanding machine learning and data science workloads for teams working in corporate offices, research facilities, labs or home offices everywhere.
Delivering 2.5 petaflops of AI performance, DGX Station A100 is the only workgroup server with four of the latest NVIDIA® A100 Tensor Core GPUs fully interconnected with NVIDIA NVLink®, providing up to 320GB of GPU memory to speed breakthroughs in enterprise data science and AI.
DGX Station A100 is also the only workgroup server that supports NVIDIA’s multi-instance GPU (MIG) technology. With MIG, a single DGX Station A100 provides up to 28 separate GPU instances to run parallel jobs and support multiple users without impacting system performance.
“DGX Station A100 brings AI out of the data center with a server-class system that can plug in anywhere,” said Charlie Boyle, vice president and general manager of DGX systems at NVIDIA. “Teams of data science and AI researchers can accelerate their work using the same software stack as NVIDIA DGX A100 systems, enabling them to easily scale from development to deployment.”
DGX Station Powers AI Innovation
An AI Supercomputer Anywhere
DGX Station A100 is available with four 80GB or 40GB NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs, providing options for data science and AI research teams to select a system according to their unique workloads and budgets.
To power complex conversational AI models like BERT Large inference, DGX Station A100 is more than 4x faster than the previous generation DGX Station. It delivers nearly a 3x performance boost for BERT Large AI training.
Doubling Down on GPU Memory for AI, HPC
The new NVIDIA DGX A100 640GB systems can also be integrated into the NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD™ Solution for Enterprise, allowing organizations to build, train and deploy massive AI models on turnkey AI supercomputers available in units of 20 DGX A100 systems.
The first installments of NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD systems with DGX A100 640GB will include the Cambridge-1 supercomputer being installed in the U.K. to supercharge healthcare research, as well as the new University of Florida HiPerGator AI supercomputer that will power AI-infused discovery across the Sunshine State.
