DDN BLOG

Wanting to learn how to simplify AI workflows with enhanced security and performance optimizations? DDN has you covered.

Executing successfully on an AI strategy is a major task for any business. At NVIDIA’s GTC event, DDN explained how to unify organizational data, and analyze and share previously siloed data with a storage platform that delivers virtually unlimited scale and concurrency to simplify AI workflows and accelerate revenue. DDN has developed and delivered more AI data storage than any other company in the world for organizations across financial services, life sciences, automotive, manufacturing, and government. With tighter integrations into the AI ecosystem DDN makes the whole infrastructure (network, GPU, CPU) more efficient, and speeds up all aspects of the AI data lifecycle, from ingest through to deep learning and inference.

Watch now as Dr James Coomer demonstrates how these integrations between DDN storage and the AI infrastructure and workloads deliver the best in scalability and performance. This session also covers how architectures are utilizing NVIDIA® BlueField® data processing units, and GPUDirect Storage as a way to achieve maximum performance and scale in a secure data environment.

How DDN and NVIDIA Keep Data Producing Results Faster, Together

Building a hyper-efficient AI Production Platform depends upon a data storage platform that can accelerate all parts of the AI lifecycle. Many storage systems have an Achilles Heel; for example, poor write performance, ungainly management of the GPU compute environment, or limited support for the data transfer methods used by AI frameworks. These, and more areas can cripple different parts of the end-to-end pipeline, each creating a major problem for AI success. Uniquely, together DDN and NVIDIA have tested at extreme scale, with real production workloads and have built in optimizations and integrations between the AI and Data worlds to eliminate these problem areas across the whole pipeline.

Simplify AI Workflows and Accelerate Revenue

How DDN and NVIDIA Keep Data Safe

AI is creating new revenue streams at an unprecedented rate, and while organizations work to extract value from data, the data is more valuable thus making it a target for potential cyber breaches.
Trying to keep large datasets secure while maintaining accessibility for authorized users can introduce a web of complexities that is challenging to solve. DDN and NVIDIA have a way to simplify AI workflows and accelerate revenue for organizations by integrating the strongest security measures, keeping costs in check, eliminating data silos and keeping configurations simple.
