Cirrascale Corporation Key Developments

Cirrascale Corporation Launches Innovative Multi-GPU Cloud Service Aimed At Tackling Multi-GPU Deep Learning Training Applications

Cirrascale Corporation announced it will offer the new NVIDIA® DGX-1™ deep learning system as part of its widening deep learning infrastructure hardware solutions. The addition of the NVIDIA DGX-1 system to its deep learning hardware solutions furthers its commitment in helping its customers find the right deep learning training infrastructure for larger, more accurate neural networks. The NVIDIA DGX-1 is the world's first deep learning supercomputer, a fully integrated system with deep learning software and development tools for quick, easy deployment. It is built on new NVIDIA Pascal™-architecture based Tesla® P100 GPUs, and features NVIDIA NVLink™ high-speed interconnect technology, which delivers 5x higher bandwidth than today's best-in-class solution. The DGX-1 enables researchers to train larger, more sophisticated deep neural networks more quickly and easily than ever before, driving new classes of advanced artificial intelligence applications. The NVIDIA DGX-1 system will add further weight to Cirrascale's already robust deep learning solutions, such as its highly advanced next-generation rackmount solution, the Cirrascale GX8 Series. The GX8 is designed around the company's 96-lane Gen3 PCIe switch-enabled risers and supports up to 10 PCIe Gen 3.0 devices, including the NVIDIA Tesla M40 GPU accelerators, enabling multi-device peering on a single PCIe root complex. The NVIDIA DGX-1 system is immediately available to order and will be shipping to customers with general availability from NVIDIA expected in June.

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

Cirrascale Corporation® announced it will offer the new NVIDIA® Tesla® M40 GPU accelerators with 24GB GDDR5 memory throughout its high-performance, deep learning product lines. Utilizing the company's proprietary 96-lane Gen3 PCIe switch-enabled risers, the GX Series and GB5600 Series product lines can attach up to eight discrete NVIDIA Tesla M40 GPUs on the same PCIe root complex in a single rackmount or blade server chassis, with additional room for other Gen3 PCIe x16 devices such as InfiniBand® or NVMe cards. Extending the capabilities of these accelerators, the Cirrascale SR3615 PCIe switch riser enables up to 10 PCIe Gen3 x16 compatible devices -- such as GPU accelerators, InfiniBand network or NVMe storage cards -- to communicate directly with each other on the same PCI root complex. This eliminates the need for host CPU intervention by allowing the accelerators to share a single memory address space and make use of DMA to control data movement. When used in conjunction with NVIDIA GPUDirect technology, compatible PCIe Gen3 x16 devices can directly read and write CUDA host and device memory, including memory owned by network and storage devices. 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 GX 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.

Cirrascale Corporation® Expands Key Product Offerings with Support for Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 v4 Product Families

Cirrascale Corporation® announced its line of multi-GPU servers - the GX4 Series, the GX8 Series and the GB5600 Series - have been updated to support the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 product family. The highly anticipated processors, formerly codenamed Broadwell, are specifically designed to deliver unparalleled performance and versatility across diverse workloads. The Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 product family is designed to deliver improved absolute performance and performance per watt for deep learning, cloud, and HPC workloads and applications. The combination of Intel Xeon processors and Cirrascale infrastructure improves bandwidth and reduces latency throughout the system, providing a high-performing, highly scalable solution. Additionally, enhancements to the DDR4 memory technology support for up to 3TB per socket in dual socket configurations. This provides increased bandwidth and power efficiency while enabling higher overall memory bandwidth of up to 2400 megatransfers per second (MT/s). The Cirrascale GX4 Series, the GX8 Series and the GB5600 Series blade and rackmount server product lines are immediately available to order and will be shipping subject to the announced component availability. Licensing opportunities will also be available immediately to both customers and partners.
