Pavilion Announces NVIDIA NDR 400Gb/s InfiniBand, and NVIDIA Magnum IO GPUDirect Storage Brings Unprecedented AI/ML Capabilities to Customers 

Organizations now have new opportunities to drive significant AI/ML value with the GA release of  NVIDIA® Magnum IO™ GPUDirect® Storage (GDS) and NDR 400Gb/s InfiniBand. These exciting technologies, when combined with ultra-low latency, high performance storage, enable customers to process data faster and to get more value from their compute and IO investments. 

GDS takes advantage of GPUDirect and RDMA to provide a direct data path between storage and GPU memory, resulting in massive throughput at ultra-low latency while simultaneously reducing the impact on system resources. This enables customers to process more data, in less time, than would otherwise not be possible so that they can extract more value from their data. 

NVIDIA further enables HPC, AI, scientific computing, and other high-performance environments with the announcement of NDR 400Gb/s InfiniBand, which provides unmatched performance with reduced cost and complexity.

The combination of NVIDIA Magnum IO GPUDirect Storage and NDR 400Gb/s InfiniBand enables unprecedented IO performance and low latency with minimal impact on system resources.  These technologies work together to ensure the best performance for AI, HPC, and IO intensive applications.

"Graphistry is excited about what this means for our users analyzing logs in areas like security, fraud, IT, customer behavior, and even genomics," said Leo Meyerovich, Graphistry CEO. "Solving the bigger than memory challenge by leveraging GPUDirect storage, as part of the RAPIDS ecosystem and the Pavilion HyperParallel Data Platform unlocks the next level of scale for their visual investigations."

To take advantage of GDS, both the compute element, which includes NVIDIA DGX™ systems and other NVIDIA GPU-based platforms, and the storage solution, such as the Pavilion HyperParallel Data Platform, must support GDS. Pavilion is proud to be an NVIDIA partner providing full support for GDS and InfiniBand. 

With up to 40 100Gb or 10 200Gb InfiniBand ports per system, Pavilion is unique as an NVIDIA partner that supports GDS for both block and file data on the first day of general availability. 

Rob Davis, VP Storage NVIDIA said, "As an NVIDIA partner, Pavilion has demonstrated exceptional performance for both block and file workloads using Magnum IO GPUDirect Storage”. 

This GA release is all about providing customers with significantly enhanced insights from their data to drive business, mission, and organizational outcomes. With NVIDIA GDS and Pavilion, customers train their AI models faster, researchers find better cures, law enforcement detects more threats, scientists make new discoveries, and more. What are you ready to achieve?
