Liqid provides the world’s most-comprehensive software-defined composable infrastructure platform. The Liqid platform empowers your customers to manage, scale, and configure physical, bare-metal server systems in seconds and then reallocate core data center devices on-demand as workflows and business needs evolve.
We’re happy to announce that Liqid has been awarded a contract with the Department of Defense (DoD) US Army Corps of Engineers to provide composable GPU-driven supercomputing resources. The $20.6 million contract is for a 17-petaflop composable supercomputing system that will be deployed at the US Army Corps of Engineers Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) in Vicksburg, Mississippi. Liqid’s adaptive architecture enables the Corps of Engineers to change hardware configurations as necessary, and better accommodate the performance requirements of uneven, unpredictable workloads associated with graphics-intensive artificial intelligence (AI) applications. At this time, the performance capabilities of the Liqid deployment would rank the system at number 15 on the TOP500 ranking of the world’s most powerful high-performance computing (HPC) platforms.
“The team at Liqid is proud our composable infrastructure solutions are now providing the kind of high-performance computing environment the Corps of Engineers’ requires to address 21st century engineering challenges associated with maintaining and improving physical infrastructure, and protecting against natural and human-made disasters,” said Sumit Puri, CEO & Cofounder, Liqid.
“As supercomputers around the world rely increasingly on GPUs to provide essential data capacity and performance, the ability to utilize that resource across multiple fabrics in the largest pools possible is of vital importance. By choosing Liqid CDI solutions, the DoD can better utilize these resources to help secure the world against what comes next with one of the world’s most powerful supercomputers.”
