Collaboration between Dell, Lenovo, Hewlett Packard, and NVIDIA
NVIDIA recently announced that it will be the first to integrate NVIDIA Spectrum-X Ethernet networking technologies for AI into Dell, Lenovo, and Hewlett Packard lineups to aid enterprise customers in speeding up generative AI workloads.
These top three system makers will bring Spectrum-X with NVIDIA Tensor Core GPUs, NVIDIA AI Enterprise software, and NVIDIA AI Workbench software to their new systems. This will give enterprises the foundation needed to transform their businesses with generative AI.
Each leader of the big three commented on AI and stated how using NVIDIA’s technology would help enterprises.
Michael Dell, CEO of Dell Technologies, said, “Accelerated computing and networking are key to building systems to meet the demands of large language models and generative AI applications.”
Antonio Neri, CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprises, stated, “Generative AI will undoubtedly drive innovation across multiple industries. These powerful new applications will require a fundamentally different architecture to support a variety of dynamic workloads.”
“Generative AI can power unprecedented transformation but places unprecedented demands on enterprise infrastructure,” said Yuanqing Yang, CEO of Lenovo.
The new systems from these companies showcasing the complete NVIDIA AI stack are anticipated to be released in the first quarter of 2024.
Background on the tech
Spectrum-X was made for generative AI and, “offers enterprises a new class of Ethernet networking that can achieve 1.6x higher networking performance for AI communication versus traditional Ethernet offerings.”
NVIDIA’s Spectrum-X is a combination of the Spectrum-4 Ethernet switch, BlueField-3 SuperNIC, and acceleration software. Spectrum-X also works with BlueField-3 DPUs, “the world’s most advanced infrastructure computing platform”.
NVIDIA’s AI Enterprise gives frameworks, pretrained models, and development tools that aid in secure, stable, and supported production AI. The company’s AI Workbench “allows developers to quickly create, test and customize pretrained generative AI models on a PC or workstation — then scale them to virtually any data center or cloud.”
