AI Training System

The GRAND-C442 is dedicated for AI training tasks based on its wide range of slot support for storage expansion,  accelerator cards, video capture, Thunderbolt ™ or PoE add-on cards for unlimited data acquisition possibilities. In order to develop a useful training model, those existing and widely used deep learning training frameworks are recommended.

IEI offers different accelerator cards to facilitate AI inference computing. By combining Mustang-F100-A10, Mustang-V100-MX8 and GPU cards with the GRAND-C422, a complete AI ready solution is easily achieved.
