Cirrascale Corporation Announces Premier Deep Learning 4U Rackmount Server Supporting 10 PCIe Gen3 Devices with Support for NVIDIA Tesla Accelerated Computing Platform

Cirrascale Corporation announced the GX8 Series rackmount servers designed around its 96-lane Gen3 PCIe switch-enabled risers. The new rackmount server supports up to 10 PCIe Gen 3.0 devices, including the new NVIDIA Tesla M40 GPU accelerators, enabling multi-device peering on a single PCIe root complex and making it a perfect solution for highly parallel applications and libraries like those used for deep learning, data analytics and molecular dynamics such as Torch 7, Theano, Caffe, and AMBER. By utilizing the Cirrascale SR3615 PCIe 96-lane switch riser, the GX8 Series supports up to eight NVIDIA Tesla M40 GPU accelerators and provides room for additional InfiniBand or NVMe storage devices while enabling increased bandwidth and lower latencies between PCIe Gen3 devices than are possible in traditional systems. By enabling up to 8 discrete GPUs to communicate directly with each other on the PCI bus, free of the need for host CPU intervention, they can create a 'micro-cluster', sharing a single memory address space. Overall, the Cirrascale GX8 Series is perfectly aligned for various GPU accelerated applications, including those for deep learning, data analytics, and molecular dynamics.

Cirrascale Corporation Expands Multi-GPU Deep Learning Solutions with Support for New Addition to NVIDIA Tesla Accelerated Computing Platform

Cirrascale Corporation announced it will offer the new NVIDIA Tesla M40 GPU accelerators throughout its high-performance GPU-enabled rackmount and blade server product lines. Utilizing the company's proprietary 80-lane Gen3 PCIe switch-enabled risers, the RM4600 Seriesand GB5600 Series product lines can respectively peer on a single PCIe root complex up to four or eight discrete NVIDIA Tesla M40 GPU accelerators in a single rackmount or blade server chassis. Purpose built for scale out deep learning training deployments, the NVIDIA Tesla M40 GPU accelerator dramatically reduces the time to train deep neural networks as much as 8X faster than a CPU. The new Tesla M40 features NVIDIA GPU BoostTM technology, which converts power headroom into user-controlled performance boosts, enabling the Tesla M40 to deliver 7 Tflops of single precision peak performance. Additionally, it provides 12GB of ultra-fast GDDR5 memory, which enables a single Cirrascale GB5600 blade server to house up to an incredible 96GB of GPU memory. Extending the capabilities of these accelerators, the Cirrascale SR3514 PCIe switch riser enables up to eight discrete GPU accelerators to communicate directly with each other on the same PCI bus. This eliminates the need for host CPU intervention creating a "micro-cluster" by allowing the accelerators to share a single memory address space. When used in conjunction with NVIDIA GPUDirectTM technology, compatible PCIe Gen3 devices can directly read and write CUDA host and device memory. By doing so, it eliminates unnecessary memory copies, dramatically lowers CPU overhead, and reduces latency resulting in significant performance improvements in data transfer times. The Cirrascale RM4600 Series rackmount and GB5600 Series blade servers supporting the NVIDIA Tesla M40 GPU accelerators as well as the Cirrascale proprietary PCIe switch-enabled riser are immediately available to order and are shipping to customers now. Licensing opportunities for these technologies are also available immediately to both customers and partners.

AppliedMicro and Cirrascale Introduce RM2916 HPC Platform

Applied Micro Circuits Corporation and Cirrascale Corporation have introduced the RM2916 high performance computing, or HPC, platform. The platform is based on AppliedMicro's X-Gene 64-bit ARM processor, an upgraded NVIDIA Telsa K40 GPU and the high speed Mellanox ConnectX-3 56 Gbps Infiniband adapter. The NVIDIA Telsa K40 GPU Accelerator and ConnectX-3 Infiniband solutions deliver significant upgrades in both performance and power efficiency while maintaining low total cost of ownership (TCO). The RM2916 HPC platform features the NVIDIA Telsa K40 GPU compute engine, a high performance Mellanox ConnectX-3 56 Gbps Infiniband adapter and the performance and power-efficiency of the X-Gene 64-bit ARM processor. Combined, these features deliver not only high performance, but low TCO for HPC and enterprise applications. For the second quarter of 2015, the company expects GAAP revenue range of $1.21 billion to $1.25 billion; revenue ex-TAC in the range of $1.01 billion to $1.05 billion; adjusted EBITDA in the range of $240 million to $260 million; and non-GAAP operating income in the range of $90 million to $110 million. The company expects that it will continue to drive GAAP revenue growth and expect this to lead to growth in revenue ex-TAC as it executes on it’s growth plans.
