One Stop Systems Announces Composable Infrastructure Solutions at SC17

November 14, 2017

DENVER, Nov. 14, 2017 — One Stop Systems (OSS), a leading provider of ultra-dense high performance computing (HPC) systems for a multitude of HPC applications, will exhibit several HPC composable infrastructure solutions with partners at SC17 today. The solutions are ideal for data scientists requiring flexible HPC infrastructure across multiple nodes. By adding NVIDIA GPU and NVMe expansion, customers can add unlimited flexibility to their HPC architecture by decoupling the latest innovations in CPU capabilities, NVIDIA GPU performance and NVMe storage into a system called “composable HPC infrastructure.”

“OSS continues to provide the newest solutions to our customers and composable infrastructure is the latest and greatest,” said Steve Cooper, CEO of OSS. “Composable infrastructure using expansion systems allows large numbers of NVIDIA GPUs on the same PCIe or network fabric for use by any node in the datacenter. This flexibility is invaluable for AI, deep learning, RTM, Monte Carlo and image processing applications that benefit from peer-to-peer communication with moderate CPU interaction. Servers, GPUs and storage upgrade on different schedules from the various vendors so composable infrastructure decouples HPC components allowing upgrading at different times, spreading the capital expenditures over many fiscal periods.”

“OSS recently announced new systems that use NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs, the most advanced data center GPUs ever built to accelerate AI, HPC, and graphics,” said Paresh Kharya, Group Product Marketing Manager at NVIDIA. “One Stop Systems’ customers can now harness the power of our Volta architecture in their composable infrastructure systems.”

Composable infrastructure allows customers to utilize any number of CPU nodes to dynamically map the optimum number of NVIDIA® Tesla® V100 GPU accelerators and NVMe storage resources to each node required to complete a specific task. When the task completes, the resources return to the cluster pool so they can be mapped to the next set of nodes to run the next task. The composable infrastructure demos in the OSS booth utilize One Stop Systems expansion hardware and composable infrastructure software solutions from Liqid and Dolphin to provide the dynamic reallocation of GPU and NVMe resources.

“We’re excited to be working with One Stop Systems’ expansion technology because it provides industry-leading GPU and NVMe hardware density, increasing resource availability across the data center,” said Jay Breakstone, CEO of Liqid. “Liqid’s technology platform allows users to manage, scale out, configure and even automate physical, bare-metal server systems. With the ability to treat GPUs as a disaggregated, shared resource for the first time, scaled via OSS expansion systems, composable solutions from Liqid deliver the infrastructure to meet today’s most taxing HPC challenges, such as peer-to-peer transfers and memory access for AI and machine learning.”

“Dolphin is pleased to partner with OSS to provide customers with the highest performance hardware and software,” said Hugo Kohmann, CEO of Dolphin. “The Dolphin eXpressWare SmartIO software offers a flexible way to enable PCIe IO devices such as NVMe, FPGAs and GPUs to be accessed within a PCIe Network. Devices can be borrowed over the PCIe network without any software overhead at the performance of PCI Express.”
Composable infrastructure is also available as a cloud solution. Data scientists can rent the latest technology composable infrastructure systems and software using operational expenditure budgets rather than capital equipment budgets. One Stop Systems is partnering with SkyScale to provide our composable infrastructure solutions in the cloud.

“Utilizing One Stop Systems hardware, SkyScale offers flexible composable infrastructure solutions in the Cloud,” said Tim Miller, President of SkyScale. “We already offer users cutting edge technology for GPU computing with unprecedented customization. By adding composable infrastructure solutions, we’re increasing the level of customization for our customers.”

Visitors to SC17 in Denver, Colorado can view these composable infrastructure demos in One Stop Systems’ booth #2049. Customers can order the hardware utilized in these demos from One Stop Systems’ highly-trained sales engineers.
