Infrastructure for neural networks

Deep learning, a subset of artificial intelligence (AI), is about enabling computers to learn new concepts from raw data – much like the human mind. A deep learning system, for example, can spot the difference between a flower and a tree after viewing thousands of images of each. Deep learning requires extreme compute, I/O, and networks as well as exponential scaling. Traditional IT infrastructure is inadequate. To succeed with deep learning, users need optimal platforms and expertise.

The need for efficiency in deep learning

Deep learning has to be efficient to accomplish its business goals: Not only keeping operating costs down across the platform but also ensuring that users can quickly begin to apply deep learning applications. Hardware resources need to be sufficient to synthesise large volumes of data to drive insightful actions.

A purpose-built deep learning portfolio 

HPE offers a comprehensive set of innovations to accelerate deep learning across all organisations. These innovations span systems design, partner ecosystem collaboration, and expertise including flexible consumption models from HPE Pointnext services. They complement the existing HPE Apollo portfolio and strengthen overall HPE capabilities from the Core Datacentre to the Intelligent Edge.

Performance from the most powerful GPUs

HPE deep learning solutions include the most powerful GPUs in a high GPU-to-CPU configuration, with high I/O bandwidth per node.

Scalability up to petaflop environment

Our new deep learning systems scale up to thousands of nodes, offering a range of environment sizes and flexible cost/performance characteristics.

Energy efficiency and productivity

We design for power efficiency and productivity, capping power at rack and node levels and offering fast time to solutions with powerful system tools.

Investing in GPUs for petaflop scale

We have invested in deep learning platforms ranging from entry-level GPU PCIe-enabled servers to platforms with the latest SXM2 NVLink GPUs.

Scale with unlimited infrastructure capacity

Add capacity in minutes, not months. Avoid long procurement cycles and save the costs of overprovisioning by managing capacity jointly with your account team.

Pay only for what you use

Align costs with usage monthly via advanced metering, with no upfront payment requirements. This approach fits analyst predictions that by 2020, 80% of IT infrastructure hardware and software purchases will be provided on a  pay-as-you-go basis.

Combine hardware, software, and services costs

Pay a single price for hardware, software, and services. This applies to servers, software-defined and traditional storage, networks, converged, and software as well as HPE and multi-vendor support.

“Through our partnership with SGI, and now HPE, the Tokyo Institute of Technology has worked successfully to deliver a converged world-leading HPC and deep learning platform that can address our requirements and those of our nation. The NVIDIA Tesla P100 SXM2 node solution enables GPU based deep learning capability to be scalable to the entire size of our TSUBAME 3.0 system.”
