Grifo: the most powerful and versatile supercomputer in the world
The most powerful supercomputer in the world
Organizations of all kinds are incorporating AI into their research, development, product, and business processes. However, traditional compute infrastructures aren’t suitable for AI due to slow CPU architectures and varying system requirements for different workloads and project phases. We help organizations to overcome these limits and to succeed in a world that desperately needs the power of AI to solve big challenges.
We have designed the world’s first family of systems purpose-built for AI: GRIFO systems.
GRIFO is cluster-scale compute in a single system, single OS, and even single memory that holds up to 90 accelerators directly connected using a global shared memory to the CPU host.
More than 622’000 of computing cores in a single system. More than 5x faster than any system in the world.
And if you need more... you can combine multiple GRIFO together!
(Ancient Greek: γρύψ, grūps; Classical Latin: grȳps or grȳpus) is a legendary creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle; and sometimes an eagle's talons as its front feet. Because the lion was traditionally considered the king of the beasts, and the eagle the king of the birds, by the Middle Ages, the GRIFO was an especially powerful and majestic creature.
Why GRIFO is the perfect solution
GRIFO integrates many different disruptive technologies that span from performance optimized CPU node to record breaking interconnect technology, ultra low latency topology and integrated ultra efficient cooling systems designed to provide an optimal solution for hundreds of deeply coupled accelerators (GPUs and/or FPGAs).
All these features make GRIFO the most versatile system in the market:
GRIFO is able to host any king of accelerator including GPUs, FPGA, ASIC in any combination (up to 90) in a single compute node.
GRIFO supports any kind of virtualization and containerization without using special software (it’s a single monolithic server with multiple accelerators).
GRIFO can run any application without any code changes (CDA, Open CL, ...).
GRIFO is fully compliant with any GPUs including all the software stack available for NVidia.
Single massively accelerated supercomputing system
In a single rack units, using max system power of 29kW, the GRIFO packs the performance of a giant room full of servers (more than 10.000) resulting the single computer most powerful available now in the world.
With cluster-scale compute available in a single system, single OS, and even single memory, you can push your researches where you never imagine, exploring new frontiers, creating better products, or simulating what today you can only imagine at a fraction of the cost. Finding the insights hidden in oceans of data can transform entire industries, from personalized cancer therapy to helping virtual personal assistants converse naturally, predicting the next big hurricane or the next pandemic…
GRIFO GREENER DATA-CENTER
GRIFO enables users to gain key insights from massive amounts of data that were previously unmanageable. Given the critical research these systems are tasked to perform, these high-density clusters are expected to run at 100% utilization for sustained periods, making cooling performance critical.
GRIFO Direct Liquid Cooling (DLC) uses the exceptional thermal conductivity of liquid to provide dense, concentrated cooling to targeted areas.
The system is designed to be installed in traditional air-cooled data centers.
