NVIDIA DGX Station A100 brings AI supercomputing to data science teams, offering data center technology without a data center or additional IT infrastructure.

Information

NVIDIA DGX Station A100 brings AI supercomputing to data science teams, offering data center technology without a data center or additional IT infrastructure. Designed for multiple, simultaneous users, DGX Station A100 leverages server-grade components in an office-friendly form factor. It has four fully interconnected and Multi-Instance GPU (MIG)-capable NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs with 160 GB of total GPU memory that can plug into a standard power outlet.

  • AI workgroup server delivering 2.5 petaFLOPS of performance that your team can use without limits — for training, inference, and data analytics
  • Server-grade, plug-and-go, without requiring data center power and cooling
  • World-class AI platform, with no complicated installation or IT help needed
  • The world’s only workstation-style system with four fully interconnected NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs and 160 gigabytes (GB) of GPU memory
  • Delivers a fast-track to AI transformation with NVIDIA know-how and experience

The DGX A100 station provides users with a simple solution to expand GPU resource to run GPU-enabled tools. Provided with installation instructions and optimal running parameters for running production basecalling tools, users can expand their post-run basecalling capacity. Installation instructions and optimal running conditions for other GPU-enabled Oxford Nanopore tools will be made available. Users can run other tools at their discretion with support from NVIDIA.
