Altos server from Acer, for AI work loads now available in India

Bangalore June 6, 2021:  Altos Computing , an Acer company, has unveiled its new NVIDIA-Certified server Altos BrainSphere R685 F5, with two AMD EPYC 7763 CPUs, two NVIDIA ConnectX-6 network adapters and four NVIDIA RTX A6000 GPUs based on the NVIDIA Ampere architecture.

The server has been validated with the best configuration for performance, manageability, scalability, and security, enabling academic research and enterprises to support visual computing, simulation and various AI/DL workloads.

“Altos aiWorks” is an AI/DL computing system that includes a computing resources management tool (Altos Accelerator Resource Manager, AARM), which reduces the high-complexity learning threshold faced by AI/DL developers. Powerful computing servers also play an important role.

Altos Computing specifically selects the Altos BrainSphereT R685 F5 server, which can be equipped with up to eight NVIDIA GPUs. With NVIDIA RTX™ A6000 GPUs, Altos aiWorks accelerates the speed of AI and data model training; with 48 GB of GPU memory, the computing system can quickly process larger images and larger amounts of data.

The worldwide edge computing market is expected to reach $250.6 billion in 2024, with a compound annual growth rate of 12.5%*. As data ingestion grows at the edge, inference and analytics must be performed at the point of action. A secure, reliable, and high-speed network is essential for moving the large amounts of data processed by these workloads. This is where the Altos BrainSphereTM server comes in.

Altos BrainSphere R685 F5 server complies with NVIDIA’s design best practices and has passed a set of certification tests.  As part of the NVIDIA EGX platform, the Altos BrainSphere R685 F5 server enables enterprises to meet a variety of demanding workloads, including AI as well as supporting remote collaboration and accelerated graphics in NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise.
