St. Albans, United Kingdom (April 6, 2016) – As part of its exhibition at GTC 2016, the worlds largest GPU conference, Boston Limited is showcasing Boston ANNA, the worlds fastest deep learning training accelerator.

Expert scientists in the field of machine learning have leveraged the power of the GPU to make huge strides in improving a multitude of applications. Deep Learning is the fastest-growing field within this sphere and today’s advanced deep neural networks use algorithms, big data, and the computational power of GPUs to reduce time-to-solution or to improve the accuracy of results. Deep learning is used in the research community and in industry to help solve many big data problems such as computer vision, speech recognition, and natural language processing.

Models can take days or even weeks to train, forcing data scientists to make compromises between accuracy and time to deployment. The Boston ANNA (artificial neural network accelerator) features multiples of the world’s fastest NVIDIA® Tesla GPU accelerator, which is purpose-built to dramatically reduce, training time, in some cases by up to 20 fold. Recent benchmarks have supported this claim by reporting a reduction in training time from 5 days to 6 hours when testing the Boston ANNA against a standard dual CPU server.

Available immediately, the Boston ANNA equipped with industry leading NVIDIA GPU density, is perfect for scientists who are looking for either on-premise or cloud based off-premise solutions for their Deep Learning algorithms.

For a limited time, Boston is also offering customers a dedicated optimised cloud platform, powered by vScaler®, for deep learning analytics solutions completely free of charge during a try-before-you-buy scheme, thus removing the initial capital and operational expenditure of a physical on-premise system. vScaler enables customers to quickly deploy scalable, production-ready deep learning environments and GPU clusters in its own public cloud.

Visit Boston at booth #100 at this years GTC event to find out more about Boston’s cloud platform and GPU solutions or visit www.boston.co.uk and www.vscaler.com.
