St. Albans, United Kingdom (9th May, 2017) – Boston Limited is pleased to announce the launch of the Boston ANNA Pascal XL, the latest addition to its machine learning armoury, powered by eight NVIDIA® Tesla® P100 GPUs. The supersized GPU solution will have its world debut on Boston Limited’s stand (428) at the GPU Technology Conference (GTC), San Jose, California, USA 9th-11th May.
Accelerated solutions such as the Boston ANNA Pascal XL, are redefining what is possible for a broad range of industries. From scientific research to finance and Big Data, GPU technology plays a major role in solving issues such as data analytics, computer vision, speech recognition, and natural language processing. Machine learning experts are leveraging the power of the GPU to make significant improvements to a multitude of applications. Deep learning is the fastest-growing field within this sphere and today's advanced deep neural networks use algorithms, big data, and the computational power of GPUs to reduce time-to-solution and to improve the accuracy of results.
The new offering from Boston Limited is an industry leading, latest-generation Tesla-based server and a master class of design and innovation. The Boston ANNA XL is fully customisable, highly dense and extremely cost-effective. Depending on customer requirements, the solution can be supplied with or without a software stack and can also be leveraged in the cloud.
The Boston ANNA Pascal XL features a streamlined architecture, that eliminates complex cabling and GPU pre-heat for maximum airflow, cooling and performance-per-watt. The high-density 4U server includes 4x PCI-E Gen 3 slots for InfiniBand to enable strong RDMA performance and can support up to 8x GPUs, making it optimal for scalable GPU acceleration and density.
NVIDIA® Pascal™ architecture is purpose-built to act as the engine of computers that learn, see, and simulate our world, and as a result, Boston’s appliance promises to deliver lightning fast, absolute performance to HPC and deep learning workloads with infinite computing needs.
"NVIDIA® Tesla® accelerators enable a new class of servers that can deliver the performance of hundreds of CPU server nodes," said Roy Kim, Group Product Manager of Accelerated Computing at NVIDIA. "With support from the Tesla platform based on our new innovative Pascal architecture, Boston is delivering innovative, high-powered solutions to tackle the most demanding HPC and artificial intelligence workloads."
Available immediately, the Boston ANNA Pascal XL is suitable for a variety of use cases, particularly scientific research groups looking for either on premise or cloud based solutions for their Deep Learning algorithms.
