SambaNova Systems, the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA), and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) announce a strategic partnership to facilitate the laboratory's simulation needs.

Los Alamos National Laboratory is a multi-program, federally funded research, and development center for the NNSA. The organization is expanding its partnership with SambaNova in two ways:

● Scaling up SambaNova DataScale® to accelerate AI workloads that advance the laboratory's generative AI and LLM capabilities.

● Deploying SambaNova Suite to advance its Generative AI and large language model (LLM) technologies.

“Los Alamos is investing in Generative AI to advance a broad spectrum of national security missions,” said Jason Pruet, director of the National Security AI Office for Los Alamos National Laboratory.

"At the dawn of the exascale supercomputing era, we are increasingly relying on AI to be part of the ASC computing ecosystem to support our mission objectives now and in the coming years," said NNSA ASC program director, Thuc Hoang. "We are pleased to be scaling up our existing deployment of SambaNova’s Systems to advance generative AI and LLM technologies to contribute to the ASC program."

“The multi-year deal being announced today is an expansion of our current partnership with LANL,” said Marshall Choy, SVP of Product at SambaNova Systems. “The partnership showcases SambaNova’s performance advantage over GPU based systems on the most challenging foundation model and deep learning workloads. This means more experiments and more discoveries that accelerate and impact national initiatives."

"Generative AI and LLMs are showing great potential to transform enterprises, government institutions, and society," said Peter Rutten, Research Vice-President, Performance-Intensive Computing, at International Data Corporation. "Seeing deep tech innovators such as LANL and SambaNova collaborating is a clear sign that we have moved to impactful implementations."

“LANL is focused on scaling up generative AI and LLMs and because of that, they’ve deployed SambaNova’s technology across the lab,” said Rodrigo Liang, CEO of SambaNova Systems. “SambaNova Suite offers the quickest and safest way to deploy generative AI on-premises, solving organizations’ biggest innovation challenges.”
