Nordic data center, fiber network developer and operator, Bulk Infrastructure, is now joining the NVIDIA DGX-Ready Data Center Colocation Program. Partnering with NVIDIA through this data center colocation program would support Bulk in providing the ability to make AI deployments in its colocation data centers faster and easier.
The rigorous certification program reinforces confidence that Bulk can meet stringent demands for high-specification hosting for advanced AI workloads, network fabric and facilities engineering requirements.
“AI workloads require purpose-built, enterprise-grade infrastructure that enables businesses to efficiently scale AI training, inference and data science workloads,” said Tony Paikeday, senior director of AI systems at NVIDIA. “The NVIDIA DGX-Ready data center program helps customers around the world accelerate their success by combining DGX-based infrastructure with world-class facilities optimized for the unique demands of AI.”
NVIDIA DGX Systems
With eight NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs in each NVIDIA DGX A100 system, NVIDIA DGX systems have the ability to deliver enterprise AI infrastructure at scale with “incredible” acceleration. The NVIDIA A100 would have the potential to deliver as much as 20x higher performance compared to past generations. It can even be partitioned into seven GPU instances. It is available in 40GB and 80GB versions, with the 80GB version offering the fastest memory bandwidth with more than two terabytes per section on the largest models.
Adding this program to the data centers is a big step for Bulk towards meeting the current challenges for performance and sustainability for HPC and AI. With incredible growth found with AI and HPC, finite budgets, and the pressure to shift to 100% renewable energy, Bulk is making this move to ensure they can continue to play leading role in the European data center market.
As a provider of highly connected, ultra-scalable, and sustainable data centers in the Nordics, Bulk Infrastructure has just ensured the most powerful AI system will provide their data centers with 100% clean energy and make them even more state-of-the-art.
Another announcement followed for Bulk Infrastructure as they partnered with Ednor, a provider of 100% renewable hybrid IT solutions. They deliver a suite of hardware, compute, and data center services in the Nordics. This partnership, along with the other announcement may allow Bulk to scale to meet the necessary challenges in a sustainable way.
Bulk Infrastructure has taken the sustainability of data centers to another level with this new partnership. Endor is the ideal partner for Bulk to create green-powered data center locations with the ability to offer flexibility and scalability. Bulk may now be able to make sure the demanding HPC and AI workloads can run in a cost-efficient way with responsiveness and the necessary availability.
