NetApp and NVIDIA Supercharge Deep Learning with New AI Architecture
NetApp ONTAP AI proven architecture delivers accelerated access to data at the speed and scale that AI demands
Although many organizations are adopting new AI platforms, tools, and practices, most don’t have enough control over their distributed data stores to ensure that complete, current, and accessible data is available for their AI projects. Success with AI depends on a business’s approach to data. To be effective in today’s AI use cases and future-proof a business for new AI applications, organizations must achieve visibility into and control of their data, from edge to core to cloud.
“Companies of all sizes and across various industries are making significant inroads in using AI to solve real-life problems, especially in the enterprise. However, while very exciting, AI models and workloads are not easy to deploy, and many organizations are struggling,” said Ritu Jyoti, program vice president, IDC. “The NetApp ONTAP AI proven architecture is a powerful solution that will help users accelerate AI-driven business outcomes and overcome deployment obstacles.”
“Developing disruptive AI technology and turning this into breakthrough
products and services for our customers is a vital requirement across
many markets we work in,” said
“Organizations everywhere are making significant investments in AI, but
they often lack the infrastructure required to optimize their data for
AI projects and scale their applications and workflows to create the
business impact they expect,” said
By leveraging the NetApp Data Fabric, ONTAP AI enables enterprises to create a seamless data pipeline that spans from the edge to the core to the cloud. This pipeline integrates diverse, dynamic, and distributed data sources, with complete control and protection. With massive processing power and capacity, ONTAP AI removes performance bottlenecks and enables secure, nondisruptive access to data from multiple sources and data formats.
