What does successful AI data management require?

smart-scaling

Smart ​
Scaling

Annual data growth is 50%.

~ 90% of AI data is unstructured.

You need scale to handle volume…​
and technology to reduce volume

Do more with less

Doing More ​
with Less

70% of firms want to modernize IT. But budgets are growing by only 10%. The IT skills gap is growing much faster.

You need to process AI data faster…and automate processing itself

Faster Innovation

Faster Innovation and Results

89% of IT leaders say data silos slow down innovation

You need to integrate all stages of AI data lifecycle… and consolidate mixed data and protocols for faster results

Businesses need solutions that can optimize all stages of the AI data journey

We’re used to seeing these stages for AI data, where parallel file systems are critical and data is largely unstructured. ​

Artificial Intelligence Ingest

AI ingest

Capture data from multiple sources. Many-to-one reads.​

Artificial Intelligence Labelling Icon

AI labeling

Identify, classify, and add meaning ​across interactive data.

Artificial Intelligence Learning

AI learning

Provide high-throughput, fast reads across millions of files.

Artificial Intelligence Inference

But broad AI adoption adds workloads that rely on non-parallel file systems

Beyond parallel file services, the expansion of AI into Life Sciences, Financial Services and other commercial markets has increased demand for additional workloads.

Demand for advanced enterprise data services – such as integrated data protection and data reduction.

These workloads are using both structured and unstructured data.
