OSS Introduces New Gen 4 Expansion Platform for AI Edge Computing - Seite 2
The 4U Pro is compatible with OSS’ Ion Accelerator SAN and NAS storage applications that deliver the industry’s lowest-latency, as well as work with the widest suite of AI applications and frameworks available through the NVIDIA GPU Cloud (NGC) ready program. This enables a fast time-to-deployment with pre-trained AI models and popular frameworks, such as Tensorflow and PyTorch, which are critical to edge designs.
Liqid, OSS’ partner in delivering composable infrastructure solutions, recently announced a contract with the Department of Defense (DoD) to provide the world’s largest composable high-performance computer to the U.S. Army. The project combines the OSS 4U Pro with NVIDIA A100 and Liqid’s LQD4500 FHFL NVMe add-in cards to achieve unparalleled compute and 56GB/s data storage throughput, which is more than double the performance from Liqid’s previous generation product.
“OSS’ leadership in PCI Express expansion technology allowed us to scale GPUs and NVMe storage in record time, enabling us to win this U.S. Army data center project,” said Sumit Puri, CEO and co-founder of Liqid. “The flexibility, features, compatibility and pure speed of the 4U Pro unleashed the maximum capability of our software-defined composable infrastructure solution featuring NVIDIA A100 GPUs and Liqid ‘Honey Badger’ NVMe drives.”
David Raun, OSS president and CEO, commented: “The 4U Pro is an excellent addition to the OSS standard product line, offering new features, enhancements and capabilities for key applications that require a rugged platform on the edge which is backed by our trusted Gen 4 interoperability. The deployment to the U.S. Army with a valuable partner like Liqid, which utilizes the wide range of these features, is an ideal application that showcases the capabilities and benefits of our PCIe expansion technology.”
OSS 4U Pro expansion platform is available to order today from the company’s channel partners worldwide. It is also available directly from OSS at email@example.com or by calling toll free +1 (877) 438-2724.
