Increasingly businesses across multiple industries will embrace high-performance edge computing to fulfill the demand for processing locally sourced digital data to drive precise real-time decision-making. Edge computing enhanced with HPC capabilities, such as deploying rugged AI on the Fly® systems at the edge from One Stop Systems, powered by NVIDIA V100S GPUs, will let many companies overcome the performance, latency, and security challenges that occur when remote locations rely on traditional data center or cloud computing models. In this article, PureB2B explores the underlying market trends and unique requirements driven by this imperative to create actionable intelligence at the edge.
In the real world, the goal of putting more power into less space has been thwarted by heat dissipation since the first steam engines. In 1999 the Porsche car company was faced with getting more horsepower out of their air-cooled, 3-liter engine. Acknowledging that heat was their issue, Porsche moved from an air-cooled solution to a water-cooled solution, in concert with a dry oil sump injection system. This allowed Porsche to have extremely high performance for the engine size, with a nimble car that continues to have a power-to-weight ratio that still beats all comers in the market.
PCIe Gen 5 is a key technology for driving transportable or edge AI systems to higher performance, especially those with demanding space, environmental or cooling needs. But AI program managers should evaluate their technology suppliers’ Gen 5 implementations to ensure they fully realize the technology’s benefits.
