DGX-2 deliveries include bundled Microway services including:
DGX Site Planning
A Microway Solutions Architect will provide remote assistance to you and your facilities staff in planning for the DGX-2’s unique power and cooling requirements. This includes rack diagramming with airflow and power cabling notation, participation in remote conference calls, and answering queries from facilities staff about support requirements of the DGX-2 hardware.
All DGX OS and container software will be installed, firmware upgraded to the latest versions, desired DGX-containers installed, and deep learning test jobs run. Customers may supply questions to our experts. In some cases, factory-trained Microway experts may travel to your datacenter.
Microway also offers optional DGX services including: container and/or job execution script creation, and partner-provided Deep Learning data preparation consultancy.
Container or Job Execution Script Creation
Creating an effective workflow is key to your success with any hardware resource. DGX-2’s unique container architecture means proper container management and even job execution scripts are a necessity. Microway experts will assist you in creating: your default DGX-2 containers, scripts to orchestrate the DGX-2 containers for multiple users in your organization, and methods of dynamically allocating GPUs as required to containers.
Deep Learning Data Preparation
An overwhelming majority of the time in a deep learning project is spent on the preparation of data. At your option, Microway’s data-science consultant partners will engage with you to: to create a custom scope of work, determine the best means to prepare your data for deep learning, create the pre-processing algorithms, assist in the pre-process of the training data, and optionally determine effective means of measurement for the overall DL project. Additional services also available.
Continuing to renew your Support services ensures you receive the latest DGX software updates (including frameworks) and retain the DGX-2 solution’s outstanding SLA commitments.
NVIDIA DGX support provides you with comprehensive system support and access to NVIDIA’s cloud management portal. The portal facilitates deep learning experimentation via: containerized application management, job execution, status monitoring, software updates, and matching containers in the NVIDIA GPU Cloud.
