It establishes an industry standard that can be rapidly and efficiently embraced to help meet surging market demand.</p> <p>The new architecture is designed to meet the exploding demand for AI computing in the cloud -- in fields such as autonomous driving, personalized healthcare, superhuman voice recognition, data and video analytics, and molecular simulations.</p> <p>&quot;AI is a new computing model that requires a new architecture,&quot; said Jen-Hsun Huang, founder and chief executive officer of NVIDIA. &quot;The HGX-1 hyperscale GPU accelerator will do for AI cloud computing what the ATX standard did to make PCs pervasive today. It will enable cloud-service providers to easily adopt NVIDIA GPUs to meet surging demand for AI computing.&quot;</p> <p>&quot;The HGX-1 AI accelerator provides extreme performance scalability to meet the demanding requirements of fast-growing machine learning workloads, and its unique design allows it to be easily adopted into existing data centers around the world,&quot; wrote Kushagra Vaid, general manager and distinguished engineer, Azure Hardware Infrastructure, Microsoft, in a <a href="http://ctt.marketwire.com/?release=1300192&amp;id=11209279&amp;type=1&amp;url=https%3a%2f%2fazure.microsoft.com%2fen-us%2fblog%2fecosystem-momentum-positions-microsoft-s-project-olympus-as-de-facto-open-compute-standard%2f" rel="nofollow">blog post</a>.</p> <p>For the thousands of enterprises and startups worldwide that are investing in AI and adopting AI-based approaches, the HGX-1 architecture provides unprecedented configurability and performance in the cloud.</p> <p>Powered by eight <a href="http://ctt.marketwire.com/?release=1300192&amp;id=11209282&amp;type=1&amp;url=http%3a%2f%2fwww.nvidia.com%2fobject%2ftesla-p100.html%23source%3dpr" rel="nofollow">NVIDIA&reg; Tesla&reg; P100 GPUs</a> in each chassis, it features an innovative switching design -- based on <a href="http://ctt.marketwire.com/?release=1300192&amp;id=11209285&amp;type=1&amp;url=http%3a%2f%2fwww.nvidia.com%2fobject%2fnvlink.html%23source%3dpr" rel="nofollow">NVIDIA NVLink&trade; interconnect technology</a> and the PCIe standard -- enabling a CPU to dynamically connect to any number of GPUs. This allows cloud service providers that standardize on the HGX-1 infrastructure to offer customers a range of CPU and GPU machine instance configurations.</p> <p>Cloud workloads are more diverse and complex than ever. AI training, inferencing and HPC workloads run optimally on different system configurations, with a CPU attached to a varying number of GPUs. The highly modular design of the HGX-1 allows for optimal performance no matter the workload. It provides up to 100x faster deep learning performance compared with legacy CPU-based servers, and is estimated at one-fifth the cost for conducting AI training and one-tenth the cost for AI inferencing.</p> <p>With its flexibility to work with data centers across the globe, HGX-1 offers existing hyperscale data centers&nbsp;a quick, simple path to be ready for AI.</p> <p><strong>Collaboration to Bring Industry Standard to Hyperscale</strong><br /> Microsoft, NVIDIA and Ingrasys (a Foxconn subsidiary) collaborated to architect and design the HGX-1 platform. The companies are sharing it widely as part of Microsoft&#39;s Project Olympus contribution to the Open Compute Project, a consortium whose mission is to apply the benefits of open source to hardware and rapidly increase the pace of innovation in, near and around the data center and beyond.</p> <p>Sharing the reference design with the broader Open Compute Project community means that enterprises can easily purchase and deploy the same design in their own data centers.</p> <p><strong>NVIDIA Joins Open Compute Project</strong><br /> NVIDIA is joining the Open Compute Project to help drive AI and innovation in the data center.
