A supercomputer created by Fujitsu for research in the field of artificial intelligence, included 24 servers Nvidia DGX-1
Fujitsu recently told the supercomputer, which is being commissioned by the Institute of physical and chemical research RIKEN. As stated, the system, the commissioning of which is scheduled for April of this year, will be one of the most powerful in Japan. The supercomputer will be used RIKEN for research and development in the field of artificial intelligence.
The computing part of the supercomputer consists of 24 servers Nvidia DGX-1, each equipped with eight Nvidia Tesla accelerators P100 with integrated software for deep learning, and 32 servers Fujitsu Primergy RX2530 M2. Total theoretical performance of a supercomputer on operations half-precision floating-point exceeds 4 PFLOPS.
Data storage subsystem consists of six servers Fujitsu Primergy RX2540 M2, eight storage Fujitsu Eternus DX200 S3 and one storage Fujitsu Eternus DX100 S3. To organize data access uses a specialized scalable file system Fujitsu FEFS.
