Dell Technologies™ Cloud PowerScale™ for Google Cloud is a Google native scalable file service providing high-speed file access over SMB, NFS, and HDFS. It is powered by the Dell EMC™ PowerScale family which includes Dell EMC Isilon™ and PowerScale nodes as well as PowerScale OneFS™ which runs across these systems. PowerScale for Google Cloud provides linear scalability for performance and capacity, storage tiering, and multiprotocol access, making it an ideal storage platform for many deep-learning workloads.
This white paper demonstrates how PowerScale for Google Cloud can be used with Google Cloud Compute Engine and 120 NVIDIA® GPUs to perform deep-learning training at scale. The results of industry-standard image classification training benchmarks using TensorFlow are included.
