Designed for accelerated application development and deployment with scalable and agile infrastructure
Supermicro NGC-Ready Systems are validated for functionality and performance of AI software from NVIDIA NGC. These systems, together with NVIDIA NGC, enable customers to develop and deploy end-to-end AI solutions. The systems come pre-installed with operating system, container, CUDA environment necessary to run NVIDIA NGC software. Supermicro provides NVIDIA NGC software installation as an additional service. Enterprise-grade support for hardware and the operating system is available to help system administrators minimize system downtime, giving users the confidence to support AI workloads.
Powered by NVIDIA V100 and T4, the Supermicro NGC-Ready systems provide speedups for both training and inference. The NVIDIA NGC software is delivered as Docker containers, so they can run anywhere the Supermicro NGC-Ready Systems are deployed:
- in data centers or cloud
- in edge micro-datacenters
- in distributed remote locations as environment-resilient and secured EGX servers
Backed by 26 years of experience delivering state-of-the art computing solutions, Supermicro systems are the most power-eﬀicient, highest-performing, and highest-value server solutions on the market today. With support for ultra-fast networking and storage, as well as NVIDIA V100 and T4 GPUs, the Supermicro NGC-Ready systems are the most scalable and reliable servers to support AI. Customers can run their AI infrastructures with confidence.
NGC is NVIDIA’s hub for GPU-accelerated AI, ML, and HPC applications containers, SDKs and tools that provides faster access to performance-optimized software.
NGC container registry hosts containers for the top AI and data science software — all tuned, tested and optimized by NVIDIA — as well as fully tested containers for HPC applications and data analytics. These containers take advantage of NVIDIA GPUs on-premises and in the cloud. Each is fully optimized and works across a wide variety of Supermicro server solutions with NVIDIA GPUs.
NVIDIA NGC also hosts pre-trained models to help data scientists build high- accuracy models faster and offers industry-specific SDKs that simplify developing end-to-end AI solutions with training and inference.
NVIDIA is the leader in high performance GPU accelerators and software for AI software development and deployment. By bringing technologies from the latest AI research into NGC, customers can feel confident they have the best choices to develop their AI applications. With pre-trained AI models and transfer learning, customers can develop AI solutions much more rapidly than before by using NGC.
Supermicro NGC-Ready System Advantages
Supermicro NGC-Ready systems are validated for performance and functionality to run NGC containers.
