New NVIDIA Hyperscale Accelerators Boost Machine Learning Throughput for Web Data Centers

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Nov 10, 2015 -- NVIDIA today announced an end-to-end hyperscale data center platform that lets web-services companies accelerate their huge machine learning workloads.

The NVIDIA hyperscale accelerator line consists of two accelerators. One lets researchers more quickly innovate and design new deep neural networks for each of the increasing number of applications they want to power with artificial intelligence (AI). Another is a low-power accelerator designed to deploy these networks across the data center. The line also includes a suite of GPU-accelerated libraries.

Together, they enable developers to use the powerful Tesla Accelerated Computing Platform to drive machine learning in hyperscale data centers and create unprecedented AI-based applications.

"The artificial intelligence race is on," said Jen-Hsun Huang, co-founder and CEO of NVIDIA. "Machine learning is unquestionably one of the most important developments in computing today, on the scale of the PC, the internet and cloud computing. Industries ranging from consumer cloud services, automotive and health care are being revolutionized as we speak.

"Machine learning is the grand computational challenge of our generation. We created the Tesla hyperscale accelerator line to give machine learning a 10X boost. The time and cost savings to data centers will be significant," he said.

These new hardware and software products are designed specifically to accelerate the flood of web applications that are racing to incorporate AI capabilities. Ground-breaking advances in machine learning have made it possible to use AI techniques to create smarter applications and services.

Machine learning is being used to make voice recognition more accurate. It enables automatic object and scene recognition in video or photos with the ability to tag for later search. It makes possible facial recognition in videos or photos, even when the face is partially obscured. And it powers services that are aware of individual tastes and interests, which can organize schedules, deliver relevant news stories and respond to voice commands accurately and in a conversational tone.

The magic is made possible by machine learning. The challenge is obtaining the daunting amount of supercomputing power needed to innovate and train the growing number of deep neural networks, and the processing to instantly respond to the billions of queries from consumers using the services. The NVIDIA hyperscale accelerator line was created to accelerate these workloads and dramatically increase the throughput of data centers.

These new additions to the NVIDIA Tesla platform include:

NVIDIA Tesla M40 GPU Accelerator
The NVIDIA Tesla M40 GPU accelerator allows data scientists to save days, even weeks, of time while training their deep neural networks against massive amounts of data for higher overall accuracy. Key features include:

NVIDIA Tesla M4 GPU Accelerator
The NVIDIA Tesla M4 accelerator is a low-power GPU purpose-built for hyperscale environments and optimized for demanding, high-growth web services applications, including video transcoding, image and video processing, and machine learning inference. Key features include:

NVIDIA Hyperscale Suite
The new NVIDIA Hyperscale Suite includes tools for both developers and data center managers, specifically designed for web services deployments, including:

Mesosphere Support
In the latest showing of industry support for the Tesla Accelerated Computing Platform, Mesosphere announced that it is collaborating with NVIDIA to add support for GPU technology to Apache Mesos and the Mesosphere Datacenter Operating System (DCOS). The move will make it easier for web-services companies to build and deploy accelerated data centers for their next-generation applications.

The Tesla M40 GPU accelerator and Hyperscale Suite software will be available later this year. The Tesla M4 GPU will be available in the first quarter of 2016. For more information visit the NVIDIA Tesla website.
