    Deep Learning Training

    • NVIDIA A30 leverages groundbreaking features to optimize inference workloads. It accelerates a full range of precisions, from FP64 to TF32 and INT4. Supporting up to four MIGs per GPY, A30 lets multiple networks operate simultaneously in secure hardware partitions with guaranteed quality of service (QoS). Structural sparsity support delivers up to 2x more performance on top of A30’s other inference performance gains. NVIDIA’s market-leading AI performance was demonstrated in MLPerf Inference. Combined with the NVIDIA Triton Inference Server, which easily deploys AI at scale, A30 brings this groundbreaking performance to every enterprise.

    High Performance Computing

    • NVIDIA A30 features FP64 NVIDIA Ampere architecture Tensor Cores that deliver the biggest leap in HPC performance since the introduction of GPUs. Combined with 24 gigabytes (GB) of GPU memory with a bandwidth of 933 gigabytes per second (GB/s), researchers can rapidly solve double-precision calculations. HPC applications can also leverage TF32 to achieve higher throughout for single-precision, dense matrix multiply operations. The combination pf FP64 Tensor Cores and MIG empowers research institutions to securely partition the GPU to allow multiple researchers access to compute resources with guaranteed QoS and maximum GPU utilization. Enterprises deploying AI can use A30’s inference capabilities during peak demand periods and then repurpose the same compute servers for HPC and AI training workloads during off-peak periods.

    High Performance Data Analytics

    • Data scientists need to be able to analyze, visualize, and turn massive datasets into insights. But scale-out solutions are often bogged down by datasets scattered across multiple servers. Accelerated servers with A30 provide the needed compute power – along with large HBM2 memory, 933 GB/s of memory bandwidth, and scalability with NVLink – to tackle these workloads. Combined with NVIDIA InfiniBand, NVIDIA Magnum IO and the RAPIDS site of open-source libraries, including the RAPIDS Accelerator for Apache Spark, the NVIDIA data center platform accelerates these huge workloads at unprecedented levels of performance and efficiency.

    Enterprise -Ready Utilization

    • A30 with MIG maximizes the utilization of GPU accelerated infrastructure. With MIG, an A30 GPU can be partitioned into as many as four independent instances, giving multiple users access to GPU acceleration. MIG works with Kubernetes, containers, and hypervisor-based server virtualization. MIG lets infrastructure managers offer a right-sized GPU with guaranteed QoS for every job, extending the reach of accelerated computing resources to every user.

    PERFORMANCE AND USEABILITY FEATURES

    AI Inference and Mainstream Compute for Every Enterprise

    NVIDIA A30 Tensor Core GPU is the most versatile mainstream compute GPU for AI inference and mainstream enterprise workloads. Powered by NVIDIA Ampere architecture Tensor Core technology, it supports a broad range of math precisions, providing a single accelerator to speed up every workload.

    Built for AI Inference at Scale

    The same compute resource can rapidly re-train AI models with TF32, as well as accelerate high-performance computing (HPC) applications using FP64 Tensor Cores. Multi-Instance GPU (MIG) and FP64 Tensor Cores combine with fast 933 gigabytes per second (GB/s) of memory bandwidth in a low 165 W power envelope, all running on a PCIe card optimal for mainstream servers.

    Quality of Service Across Diverse Workloads

    The combination of third-generation Cores and MIG delivers secure quality of service across diverse workloads, all powered by a versatile GPU enabling an elastic data center. A30’s versatile compute capabilities across big and small workloads deliver maximum value for mainstream enterprises.

    Part of NVIDIA’s Data Center Solution

    A30 is part of the complete NVIDIA data center solution that incorporates building blocks across hardware, networking, software, libraries, and optimized AI models and applications from NGC (NVIDIA GPU Cloud). Representing the most powerful end-to-end AI and HPC platform for data centers, it allows researchers to deliver real-world results and deploy solutions into production at scale.

    PCIe Gen 4

    The NVIDIA A30 supports PCI Express Gen 4, which provides double the bandwidth of PCIe Gen 3, improving data-transfer speeds from CPU memory for data-intensive tasks like AI and data science.

    High Speed HBM2 Memory

    With 24 gigabytes (GB) of high-bandwidth memory (HBM2e), the NVIDIA A30 PCIe delivers improved raw bandwidth of 933 GB/s, as well as higher dynamic random access memory (DRAM) utilization efficiency at 95 percent.

    Error Correction Without a Performance or Capacity Hit

    HBM2 memory implements error correction without any performance (bandwidth) or capacity hit, unlike competing technologies like GDDR6 or GDDR6X.

    Compute Preemption

    Preemption at the instruction-level provides finer grain control over compute and tasks to prevent longer-running applications from either monopolizing system resources or timing out.

    MULTI-GPU TECHNOLOGY SUPPORT

    Third Generation NVLink

    Connect two NVIDIA A30 PCIe boards with NVLink to double the effective memory footprint and scale application performance by enabling GPU-to-GPU data transfers at rates up to 200 GB/s of bidirectional bandwidth. NVLink bridges are available for motherboards with standard or wide slot spacing.

    SOFTWARE SUPPORT

    Virtual GPU Software for Virtualization

    NVIDIA AI Enterprise for VMware and support for NVIDIA Virtual Compute Server (vCS) accelerates virtualized compute workloads such as high-performance computing, AI, data science, big-data analytics, and HPC applications.

    Software Optimized for AI

    Deep learning frameworks such as Caffe2, MXNet, CNTK, TensorFlow, and others deliver dramatically faster training times and higher multi-node training performance. GPU accelerated libraries such as cuDNN, cuBLAS, and TensorRT deliver higher performance for both deep learning inference and High-Performance Computing (HPC) applications.

    NVIDIA CUDA Parallel Computing Platform

    Natively execute standard programming languages like C/C++ and Fortran, and APIs such as OpenCL, OpenACC and Direct Compute to accelerates techniques such as ray tracing, video and image processing, and computation fluid dynamics.

    Unified Memory

    A single, seamless 49-bit virtual address space allows for the transparent migration of data between the full allocation of CPU and GPU memory.
