In the current market with everything being driven by data and Artificial Intelligence (AI), many organisations and their IT leaders want to lean into AI to realise greater business insights and gain a competitive edge. AI is transforming many aspects of business and everyday life, from healthcare to retail to cybersecurity. However, for many companies, the complexity and cost of integrating AI solutions within their current infrastructure is a major barrier to implementation.
Boston has designed a line-up of high-performance servers supporting NVIDIA GPUs including a number of NVIDIA-Certified Systems. These systems have been specified for various AI applications so be sure to select the one most suited to your needs. Each server/GPU configuration earns its own NVIDIA certification which means you get full stack support from NVIDIA as well as access to the NGC.
The NVIDIA-Certified Systems program encompasses a wide range of enterprise GPUs, and the latest smart network interface cards (SmartNICs) from NVIDIA. The certification test suite exercises the performance and functionality on a set of software that represents a wide range of real-world applications. This includes deep learning training, AI inference, data science algorithms, intelligent video analytics (IVA), high-performance computing (HPC), CUDA®, and rendering. It also covers infrastructure performance acceleration, such as network and storage offload, security, and remote management.
To overcome this barrier and give businesses that edge without the complexity Boston has produced the ANNA AMPERE range of systems which are NVIDIA-Certified Systems that bring together Supermicro servers, NVIDIA GPUs and NVIDIA networking in optimised configurations. These configurations have been tested and validated for performance, manageability, security, and scalability and are backed by support from NVIDIA and Boston.
Boston ANNA AMPERE provide the foundation for a complete enterprise accelerated computing platform. These servers provide industry-leading performance for AI, data analytics, and visualisation applications, and they can be managed with IT frameworks from industry leaders such as VMware. These systems use NVIDIA AI Enterprise to deliver the simple and cost effective implementation of AI solution development platform in your environment.
Perfect for embarking on your AI journey, the new Boston ANNA Ampere S2 server features the power of up to 3 NVIDIA A30 double width GPUs. The system supports PCI-E Gen 4 for fast CPU-GPU connection and high-speed networking expansion cards. Scalable and easily integrated into existing VMware environments, ANNA Ampere S2 is the choice for starting your AI implementation.
The midrange AI offering from Boston, new ANNA Ampere M1 server features the power of up to 4 NVIDIA A40 GPUs. The system supports PCI-E Gen 4 for fast CPU-GPU connection and high-speed networking expansion cards. With 1 + 1 power redundancy it makes the system ideal for HPC and AI workloads. Designed with AI/Deep learning and Inference in mind, the ANNA Ampere M1 makes an ideal choice for a midrange system to start implementing advanced AI solutions.
The new ANNA Ampere L1 server features the power of NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs and the HGX A100 4-GPU baseboard. The system supports PCI-E Gen 4 for fast CPU-GPU connection and high-speed networking expansion cards. With GPU Direct RDMA and 1 to 1 mapping between network interconnects and GPU. It uses NVLink to provide GPU to GPU communications in a mesh system at speeds up to 200GB per second.
The new ANNA Ampere XL1 server features the power of up to 8 NVIDIA A100 Double width GPUs. The system supports PCI-E Gen 4 for fast CPU-GPU connection and high-speed networking expansion cards. With 1 + 1 power redundancy it makes the system ideal for HPC and AI workloads. Designed with Speech Recognition, Computer vision, Inferencing and Data science in mind, the ANNA Ampere XL1 would be the perfect choice for all types of AI workloads.
To help our clients make informed decisions about new technologies, we have opened up our research & development facilities and actively encourage customers to try the latest platforms using their own tools and if necessary together with their existing hardware. Remote access is also available
