Penguin computing the full-service consultancy will deliver design expertise, custom-built technology solutions, services, and support to customers deploying AI.
Penguin Computing, a subsidiary of SMART Global Holdings, Inc. and leading provider of high-performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence (AI), enterprise data center, and cloud solutions, announced the formation of the Penguin Computing Artificial Intelligence Practice, a full service consultancy dedicated to working with organizations to achieve their AI goals.
Penguin Computing, a U.S.-based global provider of high-performance computing, artificial intelligence and machine learning, and data center solutions. It has been serving the industry for nearly 20 years with more than 2,500 customers in 40 countries across eight major vertical markets.
Penguin Computing is launching this practice in response to increased customer demand for guidance and support on building and deploying AI and machine learning (ML) projects. With technology advancements making AI a more practical option to extract value from massive data sets, research from Goldman Sachs indicates that AI will become a $109 billion market by 2025 as an increasing number of senior technology officers move their organizations to this new computing paradigm.
Penguin Computing Chief Technology Officer Philip Pokorny will lead the new AI Practice It will operate as a full-service consultancy, delivering system design expertise, building custom technology solutions, and providing professional services and advanced level support.
Philip Pokorny said “We’re finding that companies who have benefited from ML in the past, particularly in vertical markets, or who are experimenting with AI now, have the first essential element, well-curated data sets. However, expertise in building systems to extract and manage the data so that it’s easily accessible especially at scale is scarce. That’s where Penguin Computing comes in.”
“We’ve been working closely with the AI experts at Penguin Computing for the last few years and it’s great to see AI becoming an even stronger focus of the company’s efforts,” said Paresh Kharya, director of Accelerated Computing at NVIDIA. “Some of the AI systems Penguin Computing has already designed and built are in the top 20 of the Green 100, deployed by leading organizations. We expect to see even more innovation coming from the AI Practice in the future and look forward to being part of its success.”
