NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD Supercomputer utilizes Mellanox EDR 100Gb/s technology for record setting performance

While Mellanox continues its leadership as the standard interconnect provider for the most powerful research and commercial based supercomputers around the world, imagine deploying a world-record setting supercomputer using standard components in just a few weeks. In the June 2019 TOP500 list of the world’s most powerful supercomputers, NVIDIA’s latest supercomputer is based on the DGX-2H and ranked number 22 on the list. The NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD integrates 96 nodes of the most popular NVIDIA accelerated compute architecture tightly coupled with the world’s best-in-class Mellanox network fabric.

The NVIDIA DGX-2 is the world’s first 2.1 petaFLOPS system, powered by 16 of the world’s most advanced GPUs, accelerating the newest deep learning model types that were previously untrainable. In order to maintain the amount of data ingest and enable highest GPU efficiency, each system includes ten Mellanox EDR 100Gb/s HCAs for a total of 1 Terabit of data throughput!

For modern-day workloads such as deep learning, Mellanox InfiniBand provides the highest performance and scalability. Both Mellanox’s EDR 100Gb/s and the latest HDR 200Gb/s InfiniBand solutions provide in-network computing capability, native RDMA, GPUDirect and numerous other acceleration engines and storage offloads. The latest “Scalable Hierarchical Aggregation and Reduction Protocol” (SHARP) engines enhance acceleration for both deep learning applications and HPC workloads.

We are proud to be part of the NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD, a supercomputer that sets the standard for the most demanding workloads.
