Datarewind, Enhances Hybrid Office Productivity with HPE Cloud-Native Storage and Enhanced Compute Capabilities

Hewlett Packard Enterprise | June 20, 2022

Hewlett Packard Enterprise announced that Datarewind, a Swedish IT service provider, has selected HPE Alletra cloud-native data infrastructure and high-performing, versatile HPE ProLiant servers to host virtual machines on behalf of its clients. The new compute, and data services solution enables Datarewind to provide its clients with improved performance and faster access to the work environment, addressing the hybrid office demands of today and creating a solid platform for readily adapting to future needs. Datarewind provides its services to clients in Sweden, enabling users to use VDI systems during business hours and automate backups at night. Demand for VDI solutions rose as a result of the pandemic. HPE Alletra was chosen to address this demand because of its performance and scalability, as well as HPE's track record as a provider to Datarewind. With Datarewind safeguarding client data via backups, speed and adaptability were of the highest significance when selecting a solution. With storage performance high enough to be restricted by network bandwidth rather than storage throughput, the expansion of the storage pool was considered when the contract was signed. HPE Sweden is likewise excited to help Datarewind better serve its customers. The new HPE Alletra platform will enable Datarewind to satisfy customer SLAs and host a record number of concurrent users. It also alleviates VDI performance concerns and reduces downtime. HPE Alletra is the edge-to-cloud data infrastructure that is native to the cloud. It includes a portfolio of workload-optimized systems that provide the architectural freedom to execute any application without restriction. "The HPE Alletra solution has enabled Datarewind to develop its new cloud offering and position itself better on the service provider market, with superior performance, high availability and scalability. The HPE Alletra 6000 cloud native storage technology allows them to create a strong and attractive as-a-service offering for their clients."

Vultr Talon Cloud Virtualization Provider Now Available on Beta

Vultr | May 27, 2022

Vultr, a leading independent cloud infrastructure provider, announced today that Vultr Talon, powered by NVIDIA GPUs and NVIDIA AI Enterprise software, is currently in beta. Vultr Talon, a ground-breaking cloud-based platform, enables GPU sharing, allowing several workloads to execute effectively on a single NVIDIA GPU. Vultr is the first cloud service to provide GPU sharing by virtualizing NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs. Vultr is launching a set of virtual machine (VM) packages incorporating the NVIDIA A100 today, with prices beginning at $90 per month, or $0.13 per hour. Breakthrough Cloud Platform Enabling AI Workloads at a Fraction of the Cost Vultr Talon is powered by a cutting-edge NVIDIA GPU virtualization technology based on NVIDIA's vGPU software. Rather than connecting whole real GPUs to VMs, Vultr adds just a portion in the form of a virtual GPU (vGPU). The NVIDIA AI Enterprise software package, which incorporates NVIDIA vGPU software and is geared for remotely performing AI workloads and high-performance data analytics, powers these vGPUs. A vGPU appears to a customer's system just like an actual GPU. Each vGPU has its own devoted memory, which is a fraction of the memory on the underlying card. The vGPU has access to a fraction of the computing capacity of the actual GPU. NVIDIA's Multi-Instance GPU (MIG) technology is utilized for Vultr plans with at least 10GB of GPU RAM to give tenants with assured QoS, completely isolated GPU high-bandwidth memory cache, and dedicated compute cores. High-end GPUs can cost hundreds of dollars per month to rent. While this cost is often justified for the most demanding corporate workloads, for many enterprises and developers, the cost of even a single GPU might be prohibitive to getting started, experimenting, or running apps in development and testing environments. Even organizations with large IT budgets may wind up losing money by supplying more GPU capacity than required or just electing not to use GPUs at all. At Vultr, we pride ourselves on making high-performance cloud infrastructure affordable for everyone. With Vultr Talon, we have turned the GPU delivery model upside down. Because of our breakthrough cloud platform, AI developers and data scientists can provision exactly as much NVIDIA GPU processing as they actually need, at prices they can afford.” J.J. Kardwell, CEO of Vultr’s parent company,
