5 Reasons Why Your Data Science Team Needs The DGX Station

  1. 1. 5 REASONS WHY YOUR DATA SCIENCE TEAM NEEDS THIS POWERFUL DEEP LEARNING WORKSTATION THE PERSONAL AI SUPERCOMPUTER NVIDIA® DGX Station™
  2. 2. Challenges: - You need the power of a server, but need the convenience and ease of a workstation. - Traditional platforms lack the speed to experiment fast, and iterate faster. - Researchers don’t have time to waste on IT, troubleshooting code, or optimizing a deep learning stack. - You need a software stack that lets your models follow you across desk, data center and cloud. - Today’s platforms lack the versatility to support you from experimentation to training to inference.
  3. 3. “The School of Computer Science and Communication has a powerful compute server. However, for our current projects we need a compute server that we have exclusive access to.” — Professor, Computer Science Faculty of an European University “[We’re looking for a] … a workstation configured to create and train convolutional neural networks to be set up in the department that will have the ability to download and store multiple images and reports. [..] Training of an algorithm utilization high resolution medical images requires a large memory bandwidth such as that available in NVIDIA GPUs.” — Scientist, a Well Known North American University’s Medical Center “I use deep learning to secure cyber assets. Access to a deep learning workstation will increase the speed of innovation and improve security.” — Scientist at large research lab DATA SCIENTISTS HAVE TOLD US…
  4. 4. TOP 5 REASONS YOU CAN ACCELERATE DEEP LEARNING VALUE AND INSIGHTS WITH NVIDIA DGX STATION
  5. 5. #1: DESIGNED FOR WHERE YOU WORK The power of 400 CPUs – at your desk Consumes only 1500W, drawing 1/20th the power of a traditional workstation Emitting only 1/10th the noise of other workstations 1 Download Infographic
  6. 6. #2: 3X FASTER THAN THE FASTEST WORKSTATIONS 2 Learn More Watch Video Water-cooled performance – the only workstation built on 4 Tesla V100’s 3X the performance of today’s fastest GPU workstations 30% faster training over non-DGX stack solutions 5X increase in I/O performance with 4-way NVLink vs. PCIe- connected GPU’s 480 TFLOPS 30% 5X 3X
  7. 7. #3: EFFORTLESS PRODUCTIVITY 3 Access popular deep learning frameworks, NVIDIA-optimized for maximum performance DGX containers enable easier experimentation and keep base OS clean Develop on DGX Station, scale on DGX-1 or the NVIDIA GPU Cloud Watch Video
  8. 8. - Single, unified stack for deep learning frameworks - Predictable execution across platforms - Pervasive reach #4 - COMMON SOFTWARE STACK ACROSS DGX FAMILY DEEP LEARNING FRAMEWORKS DGX Station DGX-1 NVIDIA Cloud Service NVIDIA GPU Cloud DEEP LEARNING USER SOFTWARE NVIDIA DIGITS™ NVIDIA DEEP LEARNING SDK CONTAINERIZATION TOOL NVIDIA Docker Docker GPU DRIVER NVIDIA Driver SYSTEM Host OS 4
  9. 9. #5 – DEEP LEARNING FROM DEVELOPMENT TO INFERENCE Accelerated Deep Learning Value with DGX Solutions Experiment Tune/ Optimize Deploy Train Insights Procure DGX Station Install / Compile Training Productive Experimentation Fast Bring-up DGX/CSP DGX Station From Desk installed optimized Inference to Insights refine, re-train 5
  10. 10. DGX STATION IN THE NEWS
  11. 11. RESEARCHER “I felt I won the software stack lottery as NVIDIA- docker was already installed. I immediately pulled a container and started work on a CNTK NCCL project, the next day pulled another container to work on a TF biomedical project. I haven’t looked back at how to reimage because felt too productive.”
  12. 12. DEVELOPER “For the numbers, it’s taking about 1-2 hrs to train a 152 layer ResNet on a ~20GB dataset, which is pretty good and keeping me active with experiments rolling, just on the workstation. It feels right for this work to allow fast iteration. The last time I did some serious model architecture/tuning work it took halfdays to days on Kepler GPUs.”
  13. 13. VENTURE BEAT NVIDIA also said it was launching its Optix 5.0 SDK on the Nvidia DGX AI workstation. That will give designers, artists, and other content-creation professionals the rendering capability of 150 standard central processing unit (CPU) servers. By running Nvidia Optix 5.0 on a DGX Station, content creators can significantly accelerate training, inference and rendering (meaning both AI and graphics tasks). – Dean Takahashi, Venture Beat
