STACK INFRASTRUCTURE (“STACK” or the “Company”), the digital infrastructure company built to help the world’s most innovative companies change the world, recently announced that it has been certified as a North American colocation partner in the NVIDIA DGX-Ready Data Center program. This program helps guide global businesses and organizations, accelerating their artificial intelligence (AI) adoption by identifying data center partners who are fully equipped to support implementations of this type.
“This certification reflects a long-standing commitment STACK has made to our clients to provide innovative digital infrastructure that supports current best practices in AI development,” said Donough Roche, SVP of Engineering and Client Services at STACK. “The DGX-Ready Data Center program allows the world’s most innovative companies to think about solutions first without worrying about facility limitations.”
Artificial intelligence is becoming a widely used digital transformation tool for data ingestion and management, network optimization, outage detections and capacity planning. 451 Research’s Voice of the Enterprise: AI and Machine Learning, Infrastructure 2019 reports that 83 percent of enterprises say they will expand AI infrastructure budgets next year, with 39 percent of those projecting an increase of 25 percent or more. With data and storage demands remaining on a steady upswing, artificial intelligence in the data center offers the ability to enhance compute density and streamline traditional workflows to support this increase in data requirements. However, AI adoption requires enhanced network, storage and compute power — and not all data centers are equipped to offer these necessities.
A certification from the NVIDIA DGX-Ready Data Center program signifies that the data center partner in question has the necessary infrastructure to support all NVIDIA DGX systems — including the newly announced NVIDIA DGX A100 — and are well-suited for helping enterprises achieve AI adoption. This new NVIDIA DGX A100 system is purpose-built for the unique demands of all AI workloads, including training, inference and data analytics.
STACK data centers deliver the advanced, highly reliable design architecture and flexible power requirements (N+1, 2N, or N) that are necessary for supporting these devices. As a result, STACK customers are empowered to leverage increased compute density to ingest, process and optimize elevated data volumes through algorithmic inferences and machine learning.
STACK delivers the ideal combination of digital infrastructure and end-to-end client experience to scale the world’s most innovative companies. The Company’s service portfolio includes hyperscale campuses and build-to-suit data centers (“HYPER STACK™”), immediately available wholesale colocation and private data suites (“READY STACK™”), and powered shell options (“POWER STACK™”).
