Information technology plays a huge and growing role in manufacturing. Global industries need to coordinate activity around the world. Rapid and smooth communication is the key. New technologies, such as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and process automation, boost productivity and cost-effectiveness. Single-function robots are giving way to networked machines that can be programmed for a variety of tasks.
Whether you deploy your own servers, use cloud solutions, or both, Genisys Group's network experts will help you to set up a wide-area network that will bring together all your facilities. High-speed, reliable Internet access eliminates bottlenecks. Everyone who should have access to information will have it right at hand. State-of-the-art security will keep it out of the hands of people who shouldn't have it.
Data is at the heart of every modern manufacturing operation. Inadequate data management causes inefficiency. Losing information is unacceptable. Genisys Group will help you to choose and set up the servers and databases that will keep information available wherever it is needed. Secure, offsite backup and disaster recovery protect against unforeseen events.
Cloud and on-premises solutions both have their advantages. Private clouds combine many of the advantages of both. The engineers at Genisys Group will help you to determine which works best in any given situation.
Manufacturing operations require coordinating many information sources, from materials to production, inventory, and shipping. When disconnected systems service these areas, keeping track of the entire chain is difficult. Process automation brings them together, making a complete picture of the process available in one place. Managers can catch and remedy bottlenecks and delays more quickly.
Your goals are simple: To be as productive as possible and gather the best ROI. Getting there is complicated. Genisys Group will help your business to take advantage of the latest advances in IT and achieve long-term growth in the market.
At SC19 in Denver, Microsoft demonstrated its new HPC Azure hardware based on NVIDIA and Graphcore accelerators. The new Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines are part of the Open Compute Project (OCP), a leading-edge open hardware development model that promotes possibilities for global data center deployment in the cloud. The platform is called Open CloudServer (previously, Project Olympus). All design specifications are open-source and standardized, which allows IT and data center operators to adjust community-developed innovation and scale proven hardware designs for their organizations’ specific purposes.
The 54th TOP500 list of the world’s fastest supercomputers was published on November 18th, 2019 in Denver, CO. The aggregate performance of 500 systems, based on the High-Performance Linpack (HPL) benchmark, continues to grow and currently stands at 1.65 exaflops. The threshold for entering the list has increased to 1.14 petaflops compared to 1.02 petaflops in the previous list in June 2019. Interestingly, the top of the list remains largely unchanged. In particular, the top ten remains the same as in the previous list.
Graphcore, the AI chip startup, has announced that it’s expanding collaboration with Microsoft to implement its intelligent processing units (IPUs) on Microsoft Azure cloud. This innovation will make Microsoft the first public cloud service provider that offers IPU for machine learning workloads. According to the partners’ reports, the testing of a sample server, equipped with eight Graphcore C2 IPU-processor PCIe cards, showed impressive results.
Gartner, the world’s leading research and advisory company, forecasts that the global public cloud services market will continue to grow exponentially in the coming years, as enterprises increasingly transition to the cloud to achieve their desired digital business outcomes. “Building, implementing and maturing cloud strategies will continue to be a top priority for years to come,” says Sid Nag, research vice president at Gartner. This is no wonder at all - cloud services are capable of providing the speed and agility required for modern digital business processes. Moreover, moving a business to the cloud can lead to cost savings and even generate new sources of revenue.
