Major U.S. Research Institution

Major Research Institution Relies on Ace Computers for Deep Learning Research Technology

We constantly run computationally heavy tasks for long periods of time on the machines. Thus, the stability of the machines is very important. I have been using Ace Computers workstations since 2012 and they have been very reliable.

The Challenge

A major U.S. research institution was seeking a partner to provide an array of technology solutions to help fuel numerous projects including the institution’s deep learning initiatives. The client needed solutions that could support a range of applications in the areas of engineering, physics, biology, nanotechnology and deep learning.

The Solution

The institution worked with Ace Computers to custom-build a significant amount of equipment including workstations, servers and storage to support their high-performance computing needs. The workstations were able to develop algorithms that give computers the ability to understand images and videos, utilizing a great amount of processing power and speed. Ace Computers was able to integrate the institution’s existing workstations with NVIDIA® GPUs to increase the performance of previous-generation graphics cards. The machines also helped support robotics and computational perception research at the institution by fueling two research centers and labs—the Robotics and Intelligent Machines Center (RIM) and the Computational Perception Lab (CPL).

The Results

Because the institution constantly runs computationally heavy tasks for long periods of time, the stability of its machines was critical to its work. The workstations built by Ace Computers provided the reliability and stability needed with nearly zero issues or downtime. Because Ace Computers uses high-quality yet cost-effective components and provides the client with the dependability it needs to perform research quickly and accurately, they have been a long-time partner for nearly 10 years.
