Artificial Intelligence has become an increasingly pervasive component of many aspects of modern technology. It also serves as a complementary technology to HPC. AI architectures share many architectural elements with those of its HPC counterparts. Both require balance between the computing, networking, and data systems to perform optimally. Both are connected by the fact that they are ultimately data processing and production platforms but perform complementary tasks in that effort.
Deploying HPC and AI platforms in a common infrastructure enables users to engage them for workload-specific tasks or combine them for a data-driven HPC pipeline. Adding AI and ML capabilities to a traditional HPC pipeline leverages data analysis to narrow and optimize the search and design spaces of HPC workloads. This approach can dramatically reduce run times and increase the accuracy of traditional HPC techniques.
These advanced pipelines are creating a convergence of HPC and AI that is being driven by large and growing amounts of data. When HPC and AI platforms are deployed in the same architecture, researchers can collaborate by leveraging a unified data infrastructure to operate on the same data to speed time to insight.
You need a secure HPC infrastructure that is optimized for your unique workloads and cloud needs and is engineered by a partner who knows HPC, AI, and the cloud.
Penguin Computing InsightHPC
Penguin Computing InsightHPC™ combines decades of HPC and AI design experience with the best in cloud-native technologies to provide proven, streamlined, cloud-enabled HPC architectures.
InsightHPC is built on HPC- and AI-optimized server building blocks and cloud orchestration technologies to provide an on-premises, data-driven HPC cloud-native solution that allows you to leverage an AI pipeline to reduce time-to-insight for HPC workloads.
InsightHPC provides a complete software, hardware, and management platform built on our compute-optimized hardware, Red Hat Cloud Suite technologies, and Penguin Computing Scyld cloud and cluster orchestration and management software.
