Our Products

nm-vllm is an enterprise inference server for LLMs on GPUs. There is one edition:

  • Community: free for evaluation, research, and non-production use with our Community License.

DeepSparse is a sparsity-aware inference runtime for LLMs, CV and NLP models on CPUs. It comes in two editions: 

  • Community: free for evaluation, research, and non-production use with our Community License. Telemetry data is collected with ability to opt out of usage analytics.
  • Enterprise: fully licensed for production, commercial applications with our  MSLSA or can be distributed through cloud marketplaces. Telemetry data is not collected.

SparseML is an open-source library for applying sparsification recipes to neural networks with a few lines of code, enabling faster and smaller models. 

SparseZoo is an online neural network model repository for highly sparse and sparse-quantized models with matching sparsification recipes.
