Huawei Atlas 900 wins the GSMA GLOMO Tech of the Future Award

Innovative technology has propelled the mobile industry far beyond the wildest 
expectations of early tech pioneers. GSMA awards the GLOMO Award – Tech of the 
Future Award to recognize technology that is ahead of its time and reshapes the 
world. The award marks industry recognition of Huawei Atlas 900 AI cluster as a 
product that scales new heights in AI innovation.

Atlas 900 is the world's fastest AI training cluster. It is a powerhouse that 
combines thousands of Huawei Ascend 910 AI processors for 256 to 1024 petaFLOPS 
(PFLOPS) FP16, providing the computing power of 500,000 PCs. During the 
ResNet-50 model training benchmark test, Atlas 900 shattered the world record 
by completing training in 59.8 seconds. It is the only product in the industry 
capable of completing such training under a minute.

Atlas 900 has diverse applications for scientific research and business 
innovation, allowing researchers to train AI models with images and videos more 
quickly. Not only does this benefit scientific research in more efficient and 
accurate astronomical, petrochemical, and weather predictions, but it also 
provides business benefits, such as faster time-to-market for autonomous 

The Atlas 900 AI cluster has three high-speed interconnect modes: Huawei Cache 
Coherent System (HCCS), PCIe 4.0, and 100GE. Atlas 900 uses data center 
switches from the Huawei CloudEngine series to support a full-mesh parameter 
synchronization network for AI model training boasting over 100 TB 
(10^12)/second. This reduces the synchronization latency by 10% to 70% for a 
huge leap in training efficiency.

Ultimate computing power can result in system overheating. The Atlas 900 AI 
cluster has an industry-leading heat dissipation system to cope with this 
issue. Its hybrid liquid cooling solution supports a liquid cooling ratio 
exceeding 95% with cabinet-level enclosed adiabatic technology. Ideal power 
usage effectiveness (PUE) for a data center is 1.0. A single cabinet with Atlas 
900 provides heat dissipation of up to 50 kW for a PUE of below 1.1. In 
addition, Atlas 900 is far more space efficient than an 8 kW air-cooled 
cabinet, reducing the equipment footprint by 79%. The innovative liquid cooling 
system greatly reduces customer TCO with high power, high density, and low PUE.

Comments from the judges, "This entry created a platform for progress across a 
wide array of applications in the mobile industry and beyond, leveraging the 
latest technology to deliver incredible speed and performance with a minimal 
carbon footprint."
