cnvrg.io announced native integration of NVIDIA multi-instance GPU (MIG) technology to its data science platform. This integration follows the release of the NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU and NVIDIA DGX A100 system, and cnvrg.io’s certification for the NVIDIA DGX-Ready Software program as an AI workflow solution. cnvrg.io is amongst the first ML platforms to integrate NVIDIA’s new MIG feature, which expands the performance and value of each NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU across one or more DGX A100 systems. Each MIG instance is fully isolated with its own high-bandwidth memory, cache, and compute cores. Now administrators can support every workload, from the smallest to the largest, offering a right-sized GPU with guaranteed quality of service (QoS) for every job, optimizing utilization, and extending the reach of accelerated computing resources to every user.

Cyxtera launched its Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) compute-as-a-service offering to deliver datacenter platform capabilities enabling AI-powered workloads. Leveraging the NVIDIA DGX A100 system, this new offering provides enterprises greater agility and faster deployment with a flexible OpEx model, avoiding the need for large capital outlays and over-provisioning. Cyxtera’s solution powered by NVIDIA DGX A100 offers the simplicity and ease of the cloud, with the deterministic performance of dedicated infrastructure. This new, flexible infrastructure model leverages point-and-click provisioning via the company’s data center services exchange. Customers will also have direct access to a rich ecosystem of service providers and technology solutions, including Storage as a Service (StaaS), interconnectivity, and security, among other managed services.

Truera launched its technology solution that removes the “black box” surrounding Machine Learning (ML) and provides intelligence and actionable insights throughout the ML model lifecycle. The platform is already deployed at and delivering value to a number of early Fortune 100 customers in banking and insurance. Truera’s Model Intelligence platform has been designed from the ground up to solve black-box problems. Truera’s AI.Q technology – the basis for its platform – performs sophisticated sensitivity analysis that enables data scientists and non-data scientists to understand exactly why a model makes a prediction.
