BizonOS FAQ


What is BizonOS?

BizonOS is our customized image based on the latest Ubuntu 18.04 operating system, pre-installed with
GPU-accelerated frameworks for AI (Z-Stack), NVIDIA drivers and tools that are optimized and tested on
BIZON workstations and servers. In addition, it provides preinstalled Bizon applications including GPU
benchmarks, GPU monitoring tools, GPU optimization and overclocking. Bizon App will save you up to 10X
more time on the most popular operations! BIZON customers get access to video courses and technical
support provided by engineers. We minimize the hassle of migration from Windows to Ubuntu.

With BizonOS, one can launch an nvidia-docker container, visualize the data in that container with Jupiter,
and train with just one line of code. Thanks to our bizonhelp tool, developers can increase productivity by
limiting available GPUs so they can work on different projects simultaneously on the same machine.

Our goal is to provide a set of tools for deep learning development. We believe that simplicity is what makes
BizonOS stand out from others. BizonOS is fully compatible with every BIZON workstation or server.





What challenges does BizonOS address?

Compiling, deploying deep learning frameworks, and optimizing AI software is time-consuming and requires specialized expertise.
BizonOS, pre-installed on Bizon deep learning workstations, solves these challenges with GPU-optimized software and tools that data scientists, developers, IT technicians, and power users can leverage so they can focus on building their solutions.

Most companies selling hardware have very basic knowledge of how the software works and how to optimize it. Our developers and technical support staff are highly knowledgeable in deep learning frameworks and Linux/Ubuntu administration.


What frameworks are in the Bizon Z-Stack?

Bizon Z-Stack includes various deep learning software: Tensorflow, Torch/PyTorch, Keras, Caffe 2.0 Caffe-nv, Theano, CUDA and cuDNN.
All tested and tuned to work together with system hardware immediately with no additional setup.


Where can I run the BizonOS?

BizonOS is only tested to run on BIZON workstations and servers. BizonOS is pre-installed on every BIZON deep learning workstation and server.
You cannot deploy/copy BizonOS on other systems from different vendors.


How often is BizonOS updated?

The most popular deep learning software; such as TensorFlow, PyTorch, and MXNet; is updated monthly by our engineers to optimize the complete software stack and get the most from your NVIDIA GPUs.


Can I buy BizonOS and install it on a PC bought from another vendor?

No, we do not sell BizonOS.
BizonOS is for BIZON customers only.


What kind of support does BIZON offer for BizonOS?

Our technical support staff is highly knowledgeable in deep learning frameworks and Linux/Ubuntu administration.
