Fortifying the DGX SuperPOD with BlueField-2 DPUs — data processing units that offload, accelerate and isolate users’ data — provides customers with secure connections to their AI infrastructure.
The company also announced NVIDIA Base Command, which enables multiple users and IT teams to securely access, share and operate their DGX SuperPOD infrastructure. Base Command coordinates AI training and operations on DGX SuperPOD infrastructure to enable the work of teams of data scientists and developers located around the globe.
DGX SuperPODs are AI supercomputers featuring 20 or more NVIDIA DGX A100 systems and NVIDIA InfiniBand HDR networking.
Additionally, NVIDIA and Schrödinger separately announced a partnership designed to harness DGX SuperPODs to further accelerate drug discovery at supercomputing scale.
Their jointly developed solution can enable pharmaceutical and biotech companies of all sizes to simulate molecular combinations with physics and AI to identify and optimize the most promising compounds for potential therapeutic use.
Cloud-native, multi-tenant NVIDIA DGX SuperPODs will be available in Q2 through NVIDIA’s global partners.
NVIDIA Base Command will also be available starting in Q2.
Also, subscriptions for NVIDIA DGX Station A100 are available starting at a list price of $9,000 per month.
