AI and Deep Learning Redefine High Performance Compute

AI

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Deep Learning recent advances redefine the existing High-Performance Compute (HPC) baseline. The new compute requirement is now termed Accelerated High-Performance Compute and measured by the metric known as Floating Point Operations per Second (FLOPS wiki).

To keep up with the latest generation of applications under development and being deployed already, companies will have no choice but to expand their computing infrastructure also to include this new CPU accelerated and GPU-accelerated computing architecture.

Today it’s all about Accelerated HPC servers delivering Giga (1 Billion) FLOPS pioneered by industry leader Nvidia with their commercial line of Quadro visual computing Graphics Processing Units (GPU) and their commercial line of Tesla Computing Accelerators.

DroneData® is the only hosting provider of accelerated servers supporting the entire commercial product line of Nvidia GPUs and Accelerators.  From under 200 visual computing cores to over 20,000 computing cores per server, DroneData Intel i7 server offerings deliver more single and double precision GFLOPS than any other hosting provider including Amazon Web Services (AWS) and IBM/Softlayer.

DroneData server product line has 12 to 20 CPU core accelerated server model configurations as well as options for custom configured models incorporating one to four Nvidia Quadro or Telsa products. DroneData CPU accelerated, and GPU accelerated server models are available to deliver cost effective small to the mega acceleration of 50,000 GFLOPS per server. Add onto this massive computing capability dual 1G and dual 10G public and private connections to the outside internet as well as private peering with commercial and government cloud providers like Microsoft Azure.

All Windows and Linux accelerated server offerings are available with no setup fees, only one-month advance rental payment and have no term commitments. Renting preserves capital and also retains flexibility as accelerated computing requirements increase or decrease.

Also, the Windows servers also provide full remote and mobile access to installed applications utilising the industry standard Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection. Mobility is an extremely valuable tool for drone photogrammetry applications.

Ranking computing power delivered by DroneData Accelerated HPC servers against existing application platforms supporting AI, Deep Learning, eGaming, eRenderng, Photogrammetry and another use case specific compute-intensive applications can be easily accomplished using freeware CPU – GPU GFLOPS benchmarking utilities.

DroneData Accelerated High-Performance Compute server products are built exclusively on Nvidia Quadro GPUs and Nvidia Tesla Accelerators.
