Offers rapid deployment of a development environment and optimises artificial intelligence accelerator resource allocation
With the launch of aiWorks solution in India, an Artificial Intelligence Computing Platform, Acer aims to provide streamlined and cost-effective integrated solutions on servers, workstations, networks and storage. Acer aiWorks is an integration of Altos BrainSphere series of computing system products (including servers, PC workstations, etc.) with Acer Altos Accelerator Resource Manager (AARM) smart accelerator computing resource management system. Customers and developers are also provided with different AI computing system choices, rapid deployment of a development environment and optimization of artificial intelligence accelerator resource allocation.
Based on excellent software and hardware solution, the Acer aiWorks supports NVIDIA A100 Multi-Instance GPU (MIG) technology. MIG allows each A100 GPU to be divided into seven instances. Whether it is high-bandwidth memory, cache or computing core, they are all independent. GPUs have multiple cutting forms, which not only withstand high-workloads but also ensure an improved quality of work services (QoS ), which can also accelerate the scalability of computing resources and maximise utilisation rate. Besides, for Volta and Turing series GPUs, the Acer aiWorks solution also supports NVIDIA CUDA Multi-Process Service (MPS) technology to improve GPU utilisation.
Acer Altos Accelerator Resource Manager（AARM）adopts container technology that manages AI accelerators and system resources. AARM also introduces Acer Altos’s algorithm technology that optimises GPU resource and automates the deployment of functions, which greatly reduce the complexity and barrier for users to deploy workload and application for deep learning and machine learning development. Besides, AARM allows individual developers to quickly deploy independent workspaces and development environments on the system, allowing multiple users to share hardware resources while still maintaining independent development environments without mutual influence, which helps developers focus more on the research and development of AI applications.
“With the growing demand, there is an increased workload. Acer is aiming to meet this need by bringing in a range of Acer Altos server and workstation solutions to India built on Ai platform to help our customers to be future-ready,” said Sudhir Goel, Chief Business Officer, Acre India.
