GigaIO Awarded Multiple HPCwire Editors’ Choice Awards for the World’s First 32 GPU AI Supercomputer
GigaIO technology was deemed award-winning in September, and doubled performance by SC23.
Denver, Colorado, November 15, 2023 – GigaIO, the leading provider of workload-defined infrastructure for AI and accelerated computing, is proud to announce that its groundbreaking SuperNODETM — the world’s first 32 GPU single-node supercomputer — won two coveted HPCwire Editors’ Choice Awards at Supercomputing 2023 in Denver: Best AI Product or Technology and Top 5 New Products or Technologies to Watch.
The SuperNODE is a 32-GPU AI engineered solution on a single node, now available directly from Dell, Supermicro, and selected channel partners. It was first introduced at ISC in Hamburg earlier this year, at the time breaking records with 32 GPUs on a single node. In advance of SC23, GigaIO just announced the launch of a 64 GPU single-node supercomputer called SuperDuperNODETM, which provides customers working in generative AI and HPC with a way to double their performance.
“I am just so pleased that the very hard work we’ve been doing to natively integrate our composable technology with AMD, NVIDIA, and others has resulted in breakthrough products that really do elevate the expectations of what hardware and software can do,” said Alan Benjamin, GigaIO CEO. “To have that recognized by the editors of the market-leading industry publication is deeply fulfilling and will only accelerate our ability to simplify access to AI.”
“Between our worldwide readership of HPC experts and the most renowned panel of editors in the industry, the Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards represent resounding recognition of the many deep and varied HPC and AI accomplishments throughout the world,” said Tom Tabor, CEO of Tabor Communications, publishers of HPCwire. “Our sincerest gratitude and hearty congratulations go out to all of the winners.”
The SuperNODE provides outstanding scaling and radically shortens time to results without customers having to change a single line of code. “As hard as this is to believe — and something that was shown at the San Diego Supercomputing Center in its benchmarks — you can use less performant GPUs or fewer of them, drive up their utilization, and still get faster time to results with composable infrastructure than you can with big, beefy GPU iron,” noted Timothy Prickett Morgan, Co-Editor and Co-Founder of The Next Platform, at the time of the SuperNODE’s release. Within 30 days of its launch, the SuperNODE had been covered in 14 tech publications across four different languages.
“These results demonstrate significantly improved scalability compared to the legacy alternative of scaling the number of GPUs using MPI to communicate between multiple nodes,” wrote HPCwire Managing Editor Doug Eadline when highlighting the SuperNODE in his SC23 coverage.
GigaIO’s engineering team continues to work with various technology partners to run and validate benchmark tests to demonstrate the benefits of SuperNODE in various applications. For a limited time, the company is allowing customers to remote into its SuperNODE cluster based in its developers’ lab in Carlsbad, CA to test drive the SuperNODE with their own workflows.
GigaIO provides workload-defined infrastructure through its universal dynamic memory fabric, FabreX, which seamlessly composes rack-scale resources and integrates natively into industry-standard tools. The SuperNODE and the SuperDuperNODE are “impossible servers,” fully engineered to “Just Work” for AI and accelerated computing. These solutions allow users to deploy systems in hours instead of months and run more workloads at lower cost through higher utilization of resources and more agile deployment.
