Cnvrg Supports Habana Gaudi AI Accelerators
December 14, 2021
Habana's Gaudi AI Accelerator is available on cnvrg.io's Metacloud marketplace of AI infrastructure solutions. cnvrg.io
Metacloud enables AI developers to run AI/ML workloads on a mix of
infrastructure and hardware choices, even within the same workflow or pipeline.
Today, AI developers can reduce the cost to train models, and innovate faster by
optimizing training capacity, effectively merging their on-premises capacity
with Amazon EC2 DL1 instances powered by Gaudi accelerators.
Many AI projects are stalled due to the limitations of existing IT
infrastructure to meet the growing demands of AI workloads. From the Metacloud
marketplace, developers can now choose the Gaudi-accelerated Amazon EC2 DL1.24
xlarge instance for any AI workload, which is optimized for training neural
networks. Gaudi-accelerated instances yield up to 40% better price-performance
than GPU-based instances.
This latest integration of Gaudi accelerator solution on cnvrg.io Metacloud
Marketplace enables AI developers using cnvrg.io Metacloud to take advantage of
Habana's cutting-edge technology on the fly, free from vendor lock-in and the
need to develop a new AI stack.
"cnvrg.io and Habana are helping Seagate seamlessly employ our on-premises data
center infrastructure and burst incremental capacity onto the AWS's Amazon EC2
DL1 instance cloud based on Gaudi AI training processorsówithin a single Seagate
AI workflow pipeline," said Bruce King, Data Science Technologist at Seagate
Technology. "Merging our data center resources with AWS EC2 instances via
cnvrg.io integration of Habana Gaudi is expected to yield unprecedented
productivity results for Seagate and enable us to lower TCO, while accelerating
our time-to-train functions."
"cnvrg.io and Habana are pioneering the AI industry with the combination of two
industry firsts: processing power for AI on demand from combined cloud and
on-premises infrastructure and AI training instances by AWS based on Habana
Gaudi," commented Yochay Ettun, CEO and Co-Founder at cnvrg.io. "Together, we
are making AI more accessible and powerful so enterprises can generate better
insights faster to achieve higher levels of efficiency and superior customer
experiences. cnvrg.io Metacloud is the first AI platform in the industry to
support CPU, GPUs and Habana Gaudis seamlessly in the same pipeline."
"Our combined solutions provide flexibility and high-performance processing,
making AI more open, cost effective, and powerful," said Eitan Media, Chief
Business Officer at Habana Labs. "The ability to choose the Gaudi AI
computational powerówhether in on-premises infrastructure or in the recently
launched Amazon EC2 DL1 instance-- on the fly makes the advanced technology more
available so enterprises can experience the benefits of AI/ML flexibly and with
speed and ease."
cnvrg.io Metacloud provides integrations with the Gaudi AI Accelerator, Intel
CPUs, AWS EC2 instances, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Dell, Red Hat, VMWare,
Seagate and more
