AI Benchmarks:


Supermicro HPC team has accomplished remarkable results in benchmarking AI
performance. The performance of Supermicro AI appliances have been evaluated
using various and widely used Deep Learning algorithms such as VGG, Inception V3,
ResNet 50 etc. Most of the times, our appliances have outperformed the popular and
current choices ofAI clusters that are available in the market.
For example, the following TensorFlow benchmark (using ResNet 50) shows successful
processing of almost 18000 images per second.

Our HPC team has also compared the performance of Supermicro AI appliances with other leading market leaders of AI hardware provider, and the results were significantly impressive and better. For example, the following Caffe2 benchmark (using ResNet 50) shows that Supermicro AI cluster solution can process significantly more images per second compared to Facebook:

Turnkey HPC appliance for ANSYS:

The Ansys software suite provides a standardized platform for engineers to design and run simulations in an efficient manner. Supermicro has teamed up with Ansys to provide hardware tailored specifically to the Ansys application in order to get the optimum performance from Ansys products. With Supermicro's Ansys Solution, the turn-around time between designing, running, and seeing the results of a simulation are dramatically reduced, which will allow engineering teams to expedite the development process.

The Supermicro Ansys Solution is designed to efficiently utilize the Ansys software suite and comes in a few different packages, from small and cost effective to a large cluster with ample horsepower. The Supermicro Ansys Solution contains high performance components which have been carefully selected to minimize bottlenecking in even the most strenuous simulations to ensure that the end user will get full utilization of each hardware component no matter what the circumstance. Hardware features include:

  • Top end CPUs for maximum computation power
  • Large memory allows for increasingly large datasets
  • SSD/NVMe drives for quick and efficient storage
  • High end networking for seamless synchronization at a cluster level
  • GPUs for complex mathematical computation
  • Fully integrated hardware/software stack for plug-and-play
  • Easy to deploy, hassle free management
