Data Science Workstations

Unlock the value of business data with a data science workstation

Enterprises today are using data science and machine learning to extract greater value and insight from their data assets. New, powerful data science workstations are aiding this trend by putting the power of data centers at the fingertips of individual scientists, analysts and engineers to run end-to-end data processing pipelines on large data sets more quickly.

As a leading provider of custom workstation, server and storage equipment, Thinkmate provides data science workstations powered by NVIDIA GPUs that can be 100% customized to the needs of any computing environment.

Putting world-class performance in the hands of data scientists

Data science teams require extraordinary computing performance to uncover the insights available through AI and deep learning. In the past, data science supercomputing was confined to the data center, severely limiting the experimentation needed to develop and test deep neural networks before launching training at scale.

In 2019, NVIDIA announced a reference architecture for a new class of data science workstations that could move data science processing out of the data center and into the hands of individuals, enabling them to spend less time waiting for access to resources and more time-solving problems.

NVIDIA technology powers data science workstations like the NVIDIA DGX Station, the world's fastest workstation for leading-edge AI development. The only workstations powered by four NVIDIA Tesla V100 Tensor Core GPUs, DGX systems deliver 500 teraFLOPs of AI power – the same as hundreds of CPU-based servers – allowing data scientists to experiment faster, iterate more frequently and produce results with less effort.

A DGX data science workstation can deliver:

  • A 100X increase in speed for large data set analysis
  • 72X increase in performance over CPU-based servers for deep learning training
  • 5X increase in bandwidth compared to PCIe with NVLink technology
  • Maximum versatility with deep learning training and inferencing with more than 30,000 images per second
