What is Savanna

RICOS is operating its Savanna system, a group of servers specialized in numerical computation and machine learning respectively.

This system forms the calculation base of AI technology that requires an enormous amount of calculation by using computers efficiently according to the analysis program. In addition, we are developing the computer operational know-how obtained in this system as HPC system and cloud environment that matches the customer's environment.

Features of Savanna

  • ①Savanna can be used at a low price

    Even if you do not have your computer, you can use it from a small lot with our cloud service. In addition, Savanna can be used at a low price of 100 yen per 1 node hour.

  • ②MPI parallel computation is available

    Savanna is a computer cluster that enables MPI parallel computation, so it is possible to execute simulations and calculations in parallel between nodes.

  • ③Mass storage by a distributed file system

    It has a petabyte-class distributed file system and can process and store mass data.
