AMAX Accelerates AI Supercomputing Build Outs with NVIDIA DGX™ A100

FREMONT, CA, May 28, 2020AMAX, a leader in integrated supply chain manufacturing and orchestration announced today that its HPC and AI Solutions Group unit is immediately offering and deploying the new NVIDIA DGXTM A100 system as key building block to accelerate the deployment of AI supercomputing infrastructure. Enterprise data centers, research centers, academia and more  can immediately deploy DGX clusters into their environment or build a ready-to-deploy rack elevation through AMAX Rack Integration Hubs in as fast as 1-2 weeks.  DGX A100 is available and shipping now.

Unmatched data center scalability and flexibility

More complex demands on scientific modeling, simulation, machine learning, and data volumes highlight the demand for faster HPC systems that can perform at petascale. NVIDIA DGX A100 is the single platform that brings together training, inference, and analytics into a consolidated system with optimized software that is the foundational building block for AI infrastructure. It is based on the latest NVIDIA Ampere architecture GPUs and PCIe Gen4 architecture that packs eight NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs into a 6U form factor with 320 GB of GPU memory, six NVswitch interconnect fabrics, and nine NVIDIA Mellanox ConnectX-6 200Gb/s HDR InfiniBand network adapters, and delivers 5 petaflops in a single node.

“The secret to breaking the barriers of AI supercomputing for scientists and engineers is not just about packing unprecedented compute density with low latency I/O data interconnects and ultra-fast storage into a rack elevation,” said Lee Yee, SVP of Marketing and Corporate Strategy at AMAX. “NVIDIA is taking AI computing to new levels through the power of collaborative partner ecosystems that work.  We have a long partner history together and our rack integration hubs are ready in capacity to build and integrate the next generation of DGX-based solutions into data centers of all sizes.”

AMAX Rack Integration Hubs (ARIH)

ARIH are meticulously designed for quality engineering in L-12 rack-scale server, storage and networking integration projects while simplifying the time-to-uptime process. They provide complete rack-level thermal testing, advanced cooling solutions, power efficiency testing, burn-in, quality and logistics support. Full racks are tested as an integrated unit to ensure operability at deployment.   Customized rack designs can be implemented to provide advanced cooling options, optimize power, network cable routing to fully tailor actual data center environments. End-to-end field-proven services from engineering design, site surveys, material preparation and assembly mitigate the risks of introducing new infrastructure requirements. ARIH incorporates rack-scale design that include power management, security and provisioning.  AMAX offers the most comprehensive line of GPU-integrated solutions, data center building blocks, and OEM manufacturing services for over 200 research labs and data centers worldwide.
