NVIDIA-Certified Dell EMC PowerEdge Systems bring together NVIDIA GPUs and NVIDIA networking in servers from Dell Technologies in optimized configurations. These servers are validated for performance, manageability, security, and scalability and are backed by enterprise-grade support from NVIDIA and Dell Technologies. With an NVIDIA-Certified System, enterprises can confidently choose performance-optimized hardware solutions to power their accelerated computing workloads—both in smaller configurations and at scale.
The NVIDIA-Certified Systems program encompasses a wide range of enterprise GPUs. These GPUs include NVIDIA Ampere architecture-based data center GPUs and T4, as well as NVIDIA ConnectX®-6 and ConnectX-6 Dx smart network interface cards (SmartNICs) and NVIDIA BlueField®-2 data processing units (DPUs). The certification test suite is designed to exercise the performance and functionality of the configured server by running a set of software that represents a range of real-world applications. These applications include deep learning training, AI inference, data science algorithms, intelligent video analytics (IVA), HPC, and CUDA® functions and rendering. The program also covers infrastructure performance acceleration, such as network and storage offload, security features, and remote management capabilities.
The NVIDIA-Certified Systems program is a program for servers with new GPUs and NVIDIA networking for multimode tests. NGC-Ready for Edge is a validation program for existing single-node systems with NVIDIA V100 Tensor Core, NVIDIA T4 Tensor Core, and NVIDIA RTX™ 6000/8000 GPUs. NGC-Ready servers consist of NVIDIA GPUs installed in qualified enterprise-class servers that have passed an extensive suite of single-node tests that validate their ability to deliver high performance running NGC containers.
