The GPU Roundup: The Benefits of Consolidating, Centralizing and Managing Your GPU Resources
SESSION: Heterogeneous Computing I
EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forum
TIME: 10:30AM - 11:00AM
ABSTRACT: Today’s HPC applications break down large data set problems into smaller, independent elements solved by massively parallel processor systems. GPUs as co-processing devices are optimized for this task and their popularity is rapidly advancing. Like many rapidly advancing technologies, they leave in their wake new and challenging problems. In the effort to cut costs while increasing performance, damaging ripple-effects can occur: resources may be over or under provisioned and inventory difficult to manage; lots of single points of failure mean constant job interruptions; manual reconfiguration of resources are required for each job; and servicing and lifecycle management require outages. Most of these problems can be addressed by combining GPU resources into managed, structured pools.
NextIO will present a new and innovative approach to consolidating and managing pools of NVIDIA GPU resources along with the savings benefits of up to $1000 per GPU associated with top of rack GPU consolidation appliances.
