Partner Spotlight - NVIDIA 

NVidia

NVIDIA (Nasdaq: NVDA) is the world leader in visual computing technologies and the inventor of the GPU, a high-performance processor which generates breathtaking, interactive graphics on workstations, personal computers, game consoles, and mobile devices.

The most advanced data centre GPU ever

Boston Limited are the only NVIDIA Elite Solutions Provider in Northern Europe. Elite partners are the highest level of partnership with NVIDIA and are reserved for those partners who demonstrate the highest level of commitment to visual computing.

Imagine a processor that offers advanced design capabilities for entertainment and commerce, while enabling scientists to tackle the world's most challenging problems from climate research to quantum physics. The GPU makes all of this possible.

GPU computing is the use of a GPU (graphics processing unit) together with a CPU to accelerate general-purpose scientific and engineering applications. Introduced by NVIDIA, GPU computing has quickly become an industry standard, enjoyed by millions of users worldwide and adopted by virtually all computing vendors.

GPU computing offers unprecedented application performance by offloading compute-intensive portions of the application to the GPU, while the remainder of the code still runs on the CPU. From a user's perspective, applications simply run significantly faster.

CPU vs. GPU

A simple way to understand the difference between a CPU and GPU is to compare how they process tasks. A CPU consists of a few cores that are optimised for sequential serial processing, whereas a GPU consists of thousands of smaller, more efficient cores designed for handling multiple tasks simultaneously.

NVIDIA Volta Deep Dive

The most advanced data centre GPU ever

From scientific discovery to artificial intelligence, high performance computing (HPC) is an important pillar that fuels the progress of humanity. Modern HPC datacentres are currently solving some of the greatest challenges facing the world today. With traditional CPUs no longer delivering the performance gains they used to, the path forward for HPC datacentres is GPU accelerated computing.

NVIDIA® Tesla® V100 is the world’s most advanced data center GPU ever built to accelerate AI, HPC, and Graphics. Powered by the latest GPU architecture, NVIDIA Volta™, Tesla V100 offers the performance of 100 CPUs in a single GPU—enabling data scientists, researchers, and engineers to tackle challenges that were once impossible.

Tesla V100 Specifications:

Tesla V100 Form Factors

Tesla V100 for NVLink: Ultimate performance for deep learning
Tesla V100 for PCIe: Highest versatility for all workloads

The Boston ANNA Volta Family

Powered by four ground-breaking technologies with discontinuous jumps in performance, NVIDIA® Tesla® V100 GPUs enable lightning fast nodes to deliver the highest absolute performance for HPC and deep learning workloads with infinite computing needs.

Boston’s industry leading servers are a masterclass of server design and innovation, creating a streamlined architecture which eliminates complex cabling and GPU pre-heat for maximum airflow, cooling and performance-per-watt.

The ANNA Volta [1029GQ-TVRThouses 4 GPUs in the front, no PCI-E switches or bottlenecks are used and all GPUs are connected directly to the PCI-E Gen 3 bus for maximum performance and minimal latency. In addition to the 4 GPUs, the 1U server provides 4x PCI-E Gen 3 slots for InfiniBand or Omni-Path allowing strong RDMA performance.
