$3,000 for an Arista 100G switch? Think again.
Pure Storage and Nvidia have produced a converged machine-learning system to train AI models using millions of data points. It’s called AIRI – AI-Ready Infrastructure – and combines a Pure FlashBlade all-flash array with four Nvidia DGX-1 GPU-accelerated boxes and a pair of 100GbitE switches from Arista. The system has been …
Each DX-1 system appears to be a single Xeon server with 8 V100 GPUs in a 3U enclosure consuming 3500W of power
HPE's offering is a single xeon server with 8 V100 GPUs in a 4U enclosure, a bit bigger but the HP offering supports a lot more memory and local storage, power capacity is 8800W or 4400W if you were operating on one pair of active/standby power circuits(4 power supplies). So power usage is likely to be about the same as well (not surprising).
Comparing 4 servers each with 8 GPUs to a single server with 8 doesn't compute well.
