MTS launches MTS GROM supercomputer.
PJSC MTS, a leading Russian digital, media and telecommunications services provider, announces the launch of the MTS GROM supercomputer, which has a performance of 2.26 petaflops, making it the third most powerful supercomputer in Russia.
MTS will use MTS GROM to develop the digital ecosystem. On its basis, the MTS Artificial Intelligence Center plans to implement internal and external projects in the field of customer service and improving the operational efficiency of the business. The supercomputer will accelerate the creation and launch of products in the field of machine vision and industrial analytics, natural language processing, and intelligent video surveillance. Universities, large scientific and medical centers will be able to use MTS GROM in research related to modeling complex processes.
A supercomputer plays a key role in training artificial intelligence algorithms. The computing power of MTS GROM allows you to create more complex models, test many times more hypotheses, and train neural networks dozens of times faster than before. This directly affects the quality of products developed by the MTS Artificial Intelligence Center and the speed of their launch to the market.
In the future, MTS GROM's high-performance capacities will be available to Russian companies in the #CloudMTS provider's portfolio. This will allow large businesses to significantly reduce the time spent developing and implementing projects based on artificial intelligence and big data. For startups, reduce the cost of high-performance computing for speech analysis, video processing, and facial recognition by hundreds of times. For example, in fintech, MTS GROM resources can be used to develop remote identification solutions or to assess credit risks.
The supercomputer is deployed by the cloud provider #CloudMTS in its own MTS data center based on the integrated NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD solution. This solution provides not only fast implementation of supercomputing systems, but also scalable performance for performing the most complex tasks of AI and high-performance computing.
MTS GROM is the most powerful supercomputer not only in the Russian, but also in the European and American telecom. In the world ranking of high-performance cars, it ranks 241.
"MTS is creating a digital ecosystem for Russian companies. Based on MTS GROM, we will develop the most promising technologies related to artificial intelligence, big data analysis and cloud solutions. The MTS GROM supercomputer is designed to increase the company's technological efficiency, as well as form the basis for future services that businesses and scientific organizations will be able to receive in the #CloudMTS cloud, significantly saving money" – Oleg Motovilov, Director of MTS cloud business said.
About the MTS GROM supercomputer:
The supercomputer allows you to massively run many parallel calculations at once on all computing nodes (servers). The solution is implemented on the basis of the NVIDIA DGX A100 hardware and software platform with NVIDIA A100 GPUs with a total memory of 320 GB.
Computing nodes are connected by a high-speed Infiniband network. This is a switched computer network that is used in high-performance computing and has high bandwidth and low latency.
The MTS GROM computing cluster is equipped with a NetApp data storage system based on NVMe technology, which provides ultra-fast interaction of computing nodes with the data storage system to reduce the training time of AI models.
