DDN Enables Enterprises to Accelerate Success in AI Initiatives with NVIDIA DGX Systems

DDN A3I Storage Accelerates AI Recommendation Systems, Image Analysis and Natural Language Processing with Up to 46 Times More IOPS on GPU Infrastructure

CHATSWORTH, Calif., March 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Enterprises more and more depend on synthetic intelligence (AI) as a strong enterprise enabler with large potential rewards. However, analysis has proven {that a} staggering 9 out of 10 AI initiatives fail as a consequence of complexities in architecting and optimizing AI deployments, and failing to efficiently take them from prototype to manufacturing.1 DDN®, the worldwide chief in AI and multi cloud knowledge administration options, takes the profitable integration of AI in Enterprise IT infrastructures to the subsequent degree, by delivering highly effective, straightforward to deploy, production-ready and cost-effective AI storage methods to its clients. DDN’s A3ITM (Accelerated, Any-Scale AI) solutions convey unmatched efficiency and full management to AI workflows at any scale.

“To achieve a strong competitive edge, enterprises must extract more value out of their data and greatly accelerate time to insight. For that to happen, a flexible and agile data storage platform which reliably and intelligently handles massive amounts of dynamic data is essential,” mentioned Dr. James Coomer, vice chairman of merchandise, DDN. “For the past two decades DDN has successfully deployed value driven intelligent infrastructure storage solutions. Our increasing success in bringing AI-enabling data storage to more than 11,000 customers reinforces our reputation as a leader in At-Scale solutions.”

DDN and NVIDIA provide a joint built-in AI answer that’s extremely optimized throughout knowledge storage, software program, networking and GPU acceleration. As the one storage platform licensed by NVIDIA for DGX SuperPOD™ with DGX™ A100 methods, DDN A3I handles a whole lot of petabytes of dynamic knowledge and is optimized for the complete end-to-end AI workload.

In addition to DGX SuperPOD help, DDN’s A3I portfolio has grown to incorporate DGX POD providing entry-level infrastructure options for enterprise, beginning with 2-node DGX A100 configurations for companies that desire a starter system that gives modular scale as AI workloads develop.

The DDN and NVIDIA joint answer delivers superb worth to clients by way of:

  • 33 occasions quicker AI inference than conventional storage
  • 10 occasions quicker AI knowledge ingestion
  • 46 occasions extra IOPS into GPU Infrastructure2

“Advanced AI and data science applications process massive amounts of data, making it critical for storage to keep up with the accelerated computing of NVIDIA DGX systems,” mentioned Tony Paikeday, senior director of DGX methods, NVIDIA. “The DDN A³I reference architectures for NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD and DGX POD enables organizations to rapidly implement the high-performance AI infrastructure they need to power their most important work at any level of scale.”

DDN A³I methods mix DDN storage and AI-powered knowledge administration instruments to ship acceleration in complicated AI purposes akin to suggestion methods, picture evaluation and pure language processing (NLP). DDN A³I is totally optimized to speed up machine studying, streamline deep studying workflows and remove complexity in deployment and administration at any scale.

“AI and machine learning-driven big data analytics are a popular next generation application being deployed by enterprises undergoing digital transformation,” mentioned Eric Burgener, analysis vice chairman, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies, at IDC. “The introduction of this new, smaller NVIDIA DGX POD reference architecture makes it much easier to deploy the infrastructure to get AI workloads up and running quickly so they can start driving business value.”

DDN A3I shopper plugins for NVIDIA DGX methods and different GPU environments guarantee purposes run quick out of the field with AI container workloads. By delivering an optimized knowledge path, A3I options overcome I/O difficulties beforehand thought of insurmountable, accelerating efficiency intensive purposes and scalable knowledge science use instances.

“Undeniably, since AI has entered our lives, it has greatly facilitated our social development and research capabilities, and has facilitated breakthroughs across all industries,” mentioned Dr. Akkarit Sangpetch, ECE program director at CMKL University and a member of KMITL’s Faculty of Engineering. “AI, furthermore, has proved its great ability to identify patterns in the data, and we are committed to offering the fastest and most sophisticated infrastructure to unlock insights contained in those massive datasets. DDN’s solution gives us the ability to do just that. In addition, their trusted reputation and deep experience with educational institutes further affirm our goal in providing an AI data platform for research and education.”
