Fujitsu Adds Deep Learning Capabilities to Workstations and Servers

News facts:

  • Fujitsu’s high-performance PRIMERGY servers and CELSIUS workstations power Deep Learning applications in offices and data centers
  • Latest high-end CELSIUS workstations support the world’s most advanced visual computing platform, NVIDIA® Quadro® GV100
  • Extreme memory capacity, scalability and performance will drive Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning innovation in a wide range of application areas
March 27, 2018
Fujitsu accelerates the adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Deep Learning (DL) with the global availability of ultra-high performance CELSIUS workstations and PRIMERGY server solutions which harness the latest visual computing platforms from NVIDIA. In addition to PRIMERGY servers with Deep Learning support, selected CELSIUS workstations now also support the NVIDIA Quadro GV100 card. Launched today – the world’s most powerful architecture for high-performance computing, AI, virtual reality, simulations and graphics workloads on professional desktops.

Representing a significant increase in computing performance, Fujitsu server PRIMERGY with the latest NVIDIA Tesla® V100 Graphics processing Unit (GPU) and CELSIUS workstations featuring the new NVIDIA Quadro GV100 card at their core can deliver extraordinary speed and scalability1. They are the ideal choice for demanding applications that rely on processing huge amounts of raw data, and by including these advanced visual computing capabilities across its workstation and server lines, Fujitsu can provide Deep Learning capabilities for desktops and data centers.

The new x86 PRIMERGY RX2540 M42 and PRIMERGY CX2570 M43 servers as well as the datacenter-optimized CELSIUS C740 rack workstation, CELSIUS R970 and IF award winner CELSIUS M770 workstations deliver native support for the new generation of Volta-powered NVIDIA GPUs. Enhanced processing capabilities open up further opportunities for advanced AI, Machine Learning and Deep Learning applications, in sectors including healthcare and life sciences, automotive, financial services, science, and manufacturing.

Dr Joseph Reger, Fujitsu Fellow and CTO, EMEIA, Fujitsu says: “Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep Learning are key technologies for the digital age and enable previously unknown levels of data insight and solution innovation. Deep learning allows us to build applications that can adapt to evolving situations much like humans do. This inspires exciting innovations – such as preventing disease, predicting hurricanes, building autonomous cars, and enabling smart cities. Our new servers and workstations make flexible and reliable processing power available to our customers – enabling support for new levels of application innovation, high-performance computing, and enterprise intelligence.”

Bob Pette, Vice President of professional visualization, NVIDIA says: “Immense computing power is required to process exponentially growing amounts of data. By partnering with Fujitsu, we are giving customers access to state-of-the-art visual computing platforms that represent an enormous leap forward in pushing processing performance limits.”

Native support for the NVIDIA GPUs is via direct connection to the mainboard to guarantee the highest possible level of system performance, with more than 100 Teraflops per second.
3 The PRIMERGY CX2570 M4 dual-socket scale-out server can be equipped with either two NVIDIA Tesla V100 PCIe based GPUs or four NVIDIA Tesla V100 SXM2 based GPUs including Liquid Cooling. Native support for the NVIDIA GPUs is via direct connection to the mainboard to guarantee the highest possible level of system performance.
4 The CELSIUS R970 and CELSIUS M770 workstations each support up to two NVIDIA Quadro GV100 cards with NVLink bridge.
5 Restrictions may apply.

Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers and CELSIUS workstations with NVIDIA Volta units support the widely-used Deep Learning frameworks such as Caffe, CNTK, TensorFlow, Theano and Torch.

Machine Learning is the practice of using algorithms to parse data, learn from it, and then make a determination or prediction about something. Deep Learning is a technique for implementing Machine Learning using Artificial Neural Networks, which are inspired by an understanding of the biology of human brains that can learn from training.
