Acer has launched “aiWorks solution” in India, an Artificial Intelligence computing platform to provide integrated solutions on servers, workstations, networks and storage. Acer aiWorks is an amalgamation of Altos BrainSphere series of computing system products (including servers, PC workstations, etc.), and Acer Altos Accelerator Resource Manager (AARM) smart accelerator computing resource management system. The aiWorks solution also provides customers and developers with different artificial intelligence computing system choices, deployment of a development environment and optimisation of artificial intelligence accelerator resource allocation.
Based on “Acer aiWorks”, the solution supports Nvidia A100 Multi-Instance GPU (MIG) technology. MIG allows each A100 GPU to be divided into up to seven instances, as per the company. Whether it is high-bandwidth memory, cache, and computing core, they are all independent; GPUs have multiple cutting forms, which can not only withstand workloads of any scale, but also ensure the quality of work services (QoS ), which can also accelerate the scalability of computing resources, and maximize utilisation rate. Besides, for Volta and Turing series GPUs, the Acer aiWorks solution also supports NVIDIA CUDA Multi-Process Service (MPS) technology to improve GPU utilisation.
Acer Altos Accelerator Resource Manager introduces Acer Altos’s own patented algorithm technology to optimise GPU resources and automate the deployment of functions. Besides, AARM allows individual developers to deploy independent workspaces and development environments on the system.
On the new launch, Sudhir Goel, Chief Business Officer, Acer India, said, “We are excited to bring Acer aiWorks solution to India. One of the keystones of a successful business is a robust, resilient, and reliable IT infrastructure. With the growing demand, there is an increased workload. Acer is aiming to meet this need by bringing in a range of Acer Altos server and workstation solutions to India built on Ai platform to help our customers to be future-ready.”
