Smart Modular Technologies to present AI and ML modules at SuperComputing 2019
Published: 20 November 2019 - Christian Lynn
Between November 18-21 at the Colorado Convention Centre, Smart Modular Technologies will be promoting is latest AI and ML technologies, including it latest Non-Volatile Dual-Inline Memory Models (nVDImMs).
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) applications are being developed for the enterprise and consumer markets at an exponential rate, but few developers are aware that persistent memory can play a critical role in optimising access to large data sets.
AI and ML technologies create highly demanding I/O (input and output) and computational performance for GPU accelerated Extract, Transform, Load (ETL). The key challenge developers must overcome is to reduce the overall time to discovery and insight within data-intensive applications. Varying IO and computational performance is driven by bandwidth and latency. Therefore, the high-performance data analytics needed by AI and ML applications can be addressed by persistent memory solutions that offer the highest bandwidth and lowest latency.
Non-Volatile Dual-Inline Memory Modules (NVDIMMs) are an ideal solution for AI and ML storage servers. Data intensive ETL and checkpointing workloads can use the persistent memory region within main memory (the NVDIMM) to operate at DRAM latencies (<100ns) and DRAM bandwidth (25.6GB/s), to increase efficiency and eliminate performance bottlenecks within AI and ML applications.
