Insight named Nvidia advanced technology partner

Shawn O’Grady of Insight Enterprises

Insight Enterprises, a Fortune 500 global systems integrator for organisations of all sizes, announced that it has been recognised as an Nvidia Advanced Technology Partner. The designation certifies Insight’s ability to assist clients in implementing Artificial Intelligence (AI), high-performance computing (HPC) and other GPU-accelerated initiatives tapping into the power of Nvidia DGX-2, the first 2-petaFLOPS AI system delivering the power of a data centre in a single-server form factor.

Insight is claimed to be the first Nvidia partner in North/Latin America with an in-house Nvidia DGX-2 system for client proof of concept, validation and testing of these projects. It also has the ability to demonstrate a fully integrated GPU-accelerated stack with products from multiple storage and software vendors.

Insight clients in multiple industries are using these assets to test and accelerate time to market for an array of processing-intensive solutions. A healthcare organisation is harnessing the power of Nvidia’s technology to develop a groundbreaking medical imaging platform, for example. Other users include a next-generation storage startup, a government agency, a public research institution and a company working on autonomous vehicle applications.

“Enterprise-grade AI and HPC have become linchpins in driving strategic business initiatives, and they present significant deployment challenges whether implemented in an on-premises, cloud or hybrid environment because of the massive workloads involved,” said Shawn O’Grady, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud + Data Centre Transformation, Insight.

“This new Nvidia partner level validates our ability to design and deploy GPU-based infrastructures as well as our commitment to helping clients use deep learning to achieve competitive advantage.”

Insight achieved elite Nvidia Advanced Technology Partner status because of its unique combination of Cloud + Data Centre Transformation and Digital Innovation solutions and expertise, as well as its Nvidia DGX-2 experience, and existing certifications in Nvidia DGX deep learning and NVIDIA Tesla high-performance computing.

The company employs more than 200 dedicated data scientists, data infrastructure consultants, architects, and big data and AI specialists focused on strategy and software development, providing extensive resources for clients pursuing AI and HPC projects.

An additional 800 Insight compute, storage, networking and data protection experts can define and deploy infrastructure that supports the extreme demands of GPU-accelerated installations, with another 700 application-development architects and consultants available to assist clients with their overall digital transformation efforts.

“The Nvidia DGX-2 is the gold standard in enterprise AI with unmatched compute power that pushes the outer limits of deep learning research and computing,” said Craig Weinstein, vice president, Americas Partner Organisation, Nvidia.

“Advanced Technology Partners like Insight are in the vanguard of technology professionals who can help enterprise clients leverage our platform to uncover critical business insights otherwise buried in petabytes of customer data.”
