Penguin Solutions Expands OriginAI Solution to Accelerate AI Factory Deployment and Optimize Performance 

FREMONT, Calif., June 18, 2024 -- Penguin Solutions, an SGH brand that designs, builds, deploys, and manages AI and accelerated computing infrastructures at scale, today announced the expansion of its OriginAI solution to include validated, pre-defined AI architectures incorporating NVIDIA technology.

Backed by Penguin's intelligent cluster management software and expert services, OriginAI infrastructure streamlines AI implementation and management, and enables predictable AI cluster performance in support of customer ROI from clusters that can range in size from hundreds to thousands of GPUs.

“Designing, deploying, and operating AI factories is an incredibly complex endeavor. Our OriginAI solution builds on Penguin’s extensive AI infrastructure expertise to reduce this complexity and accelerate return on investment,” said Penguin Solutions President Pete Manca. “Our OriginAI solution is a major step forward in providing CEOs and CIOs the essential and reliable infrastructure they need to deploy and manage demanding AI workloads at scale.”

The OriginAI solution provides assured infrastructure for critical, demanding workloads by combining proven architectures, latest generation hardware, advanced cluster management software, and expert professional services. These architectures are based on 1-pod, 4-pod, and 16-pod configurations which can scale from 256 to more than 16,000 GPUs. The OriginAI solution incorporates NVIDIA H100 GPUs, Penguin’s Scyld ClusterWare 12.2 software, and industry-leading networking and storage options – and is supported by Penguin’s full range of managed services.

“Better GPU performance and controlled costs are top of mind for customers today. Validated, scalable OriginAI architectures developed with Penguin Solutions’ hands-on expertise in designing, integrating, installing and provisioning AI infrastructure deliver both,” noted Matt Eastwood, SVP of enterprise infrastructure research at IDC. “Penguin continues to enable AI workloads for the most demanding environments through its innovative high-performance solutions and services.”

Based on proven architectures, the OriginAI solution utilizes Penguin's innovative in-factory burn-in and integration environment to validate AI cluster performance and confirm production readiness prior to shipment, ensuring that customers get the expected performance and return on investment from the moment of deployment. By combining these architectures with Penguin’s Scyld ClusterWare software and its expert managed services that predictively monitor cluster health and manage solution throughput, OriginAI delivers greater than 95% overall cluster efficiency while driving higher GPU throughput than traditional approaches.

Penguin Solutions is an NVIDIA-certified Elite OEM and DGX AI Compute Systems Solution Provider and DGX-Ready Managed Services partner that has been delivering AI factories at scale since 2017. With 25+ years of HPC experience – and more than 75,000 GPUs deployed and managed to date – Penguin is a trusted strategic partner for AI and HPC solutions and services for leading organizations such as Georgia Tech, Meta, Sandia Labs, and the U.S. Navy.
