Advancing IT workloads like AI and analytics requires cutting-edge hardware and specialized skills, not only from the teams who use them, but from the data centers and platforms which host them. These compute- and data-heavy workloads are designed to provide answers to some of our world’s biggest challenges. To get there, a new generation of tools bring increased requirements for physical resources like power and cooling, in addition to coming in smaller form factors, which results in greater overall density. This combination of capability and resource demand is often met by data center constraints as facilities struggle to meet airflow, power, and cooling requirements.

ScaleMatrix, with our revolutionary DDC Cabinet technology, works with NVIDIA and NetApp to provide powerful, end-to-end solutions that deliver massive AI exploration and development capacity, while at the same time addressing power, cooling, airflow, and density requirements wherever the solution is deployed. NetApp showcased their latest ONTAP AI platform, which now combines NVIDIA DGX-2 AI systems, with their own A800 All Flash array, and Cisco 3232C 100GB switching infrastructure to provide a scalable AI infrastructure solution in a single 45U DDC cabinet, also known as #DGXPOD. All in, this powerhouse platform will consume about 36U of space and approximately 40kW of power, leaving rack space and power/cooling density to spare when deployed within ScaleMatrix’ S-1052 Dynamic Density Control cabinet platform!
