NVIDIA DGX-1 Datacenter In A Box

NVIDIA’s CEO called 2015 a cornerstone year for A.I, thanks to deep learning, and doubles down on powering deep-learning computing data centers with the NVIDIA DGX-1, a server designed from the ground up to accelerate these types of workloads. NVIDIA says that the DGX-1 is powerful enough to handle the load of 256 regular servers, thus making it a “datacenter in a box”. Although comparisons like that are often designed to give people a catchy high-level, contrasted view, there is a lot of truth in it, if you’re looking at building a deep-learning datacenter. In the past, it’s been proven that GPU-powered servers could dramatically increase the compute density, replacing thousands of servers with hundreds. The DGX-1 server pushes the same concept to the extreme. At its core, it uses…
