NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP), the data authority for the crossbreed cloud, today presented NetApp ® ONTAP ® AI proven design, powered by NVIDIA DGX ™ supercomputers and NetApp AFF A800 cloud-connected all-flash storage space to streamline, increase, and range the data pipeline across edge, core and cloud for deep knowing implementations and to assist customers achieve business effect with AI.

Although lots of companies are taking on new AI platforms, tools, and techniques, the majority of don't have sufficient control over their distributed information shops to ensure that total, existing, and easily accessible data is readily available for their AI jobs. Success with AI relies on a business's strategy to information. To be reliable in today's AI usage cases and future-proof a business for new AI applications, companies should accomplish visibility right into and control of their data, from side to core to cloud.

" Companies of all sizes and throughout various industries are making significant inroads being used AI to address real-life problems, particularly in the enterprise. However, while very exciting, AI versions and work are not easy to release, and numerous companies are having a hard time," stated Ritu Jyoti, program vice president, IDC. "The NetApp ONTAP AI showed architecture is an effective option that will aid customers accelerate AI-driven business outcomes and get over deployment obstacles."

" Creating disruptive AI innovation and turning this into innovation product or services for our customers is a vital demand throughout several markets we operate in," said Monty Barlow, head of expert system, Cambridge Professionals. "NetApp ONTAP AI powered by NVIDIA DGX supercomputers and NetApp all-flash storage is simplifying and speeding up the data pipe for deep understanding."

" Organizations all over are making considerable financial investments in AI, however they frequently lack the framework needed to optimize their data for AI tasks and scale their applications and workflows to produce the business effect they anticipate," said Octavian Tanase, senior vice president, ONTAP, NetApp. "NetApp's cloud-connected data solutions and new tested style with NVIDIA DGX create a single data atmosphere for AI. This gives customers the control, access, and efficiency they should give the appropriate data at the correct time at the right place to their AI applications - all at range and all integrated, handled, and safeguarded by the NetApp Data Fabric.”

By leveraging the NetApp Data Fabric, ONTAP AI enables enterprises to produce a smooth information pipeline that spans from the side to the core to the cloud. This pipeline incorporates diverse, dynamic, and dispersed information resources, with full control and defense. With huge handling power and ability, ONTAP AI removes performance traffic jams and allows safe and secure, nondisruptive accessibility to data from multiple resources and data formats.

" The combination of NVIDIA DGX and NetApp all-flash selections satisfies the infrastructure difficulties of today's AI deployments," said Jim McHugh, vice president and general manager of Deep Understanding Equipment at NVIDIA. "NVIDIA's leadership in AI and GPU computing, integrated with NetApp's innovation in all-flash storage systems, gives customers a faster method to deploy AI with tried and tested performance and a simplified procedures model."

ONTAP AI is a joint NetApp and NVIDIA proven design offering that integrates the world's most powerful GPU options with the world's fastest and most cloud-connected flash systems and software.

Features and benefits include:

Deploy easily. Get started faster with AI by eliminating design complexity and guesswork.
Scale without limits. Organizations that are starting out with deep learning can begin with a 1:1 configuration and scale out as their data grows, to a 1:5 configuration and beyond. ​
Operate with confidence. High-availability solution design with redundant storage and network and server connections​.

An Ecosystem of Solution Partners

ONTAP AI is readily available through channel partners, consisting of:.

" As long as we have partnered with NetApp, their products have had the ability to adjust to address the challenges around information that have major technical advancements. AI is a key component to building modern applications that are engaging, real time, and distributed. NetApp ONTAP AI and Information Fabric make it less complicated to leverage information anywhere it is, to construct and release powerful AI-powered applications," stated Mark Kelly, chief method officer at ePlus. "ONTAP AI simplifies continuous operations and speeds up time to outcomes. With our AI expertise and record in converged framework, we can help customers concentrate less on infrastructure and even more on driving results from their deep knowing atmospheres.".

" Customers desire an AI solution that permits them to begin little and expand. ONTAP AI gives a tried and tested style to assist them attain that goal," said Manohar Vellala, practice manager, Information and Analytics at Groupware Innovation. "Our customers can now deploy a powerful, very available deep discovering configuration confirmed by NetApp and NVIDIA with the clearance to grow with their needs.".

" IAS is excited to be a launch partner for the ONTAP AI showed style," said Amy Rao, Chief Executive Officer of IAS. "Relocating big datasets from edge to core or core to cloud is becoming unwise, and customers are searching for ways to make best use of data value independent of area. The Data Textile - combined with NetApp cloud-connected all-flash innovation and NVIDIA GPU-assisted calculate and all packaged in a prevalidated setup - gives customers the selection, control, performance, and schedule needed for deep learning environments.”

" Customers deploying AI and deep understanding are seeking methods to lower their time to end results. A highly offered and powerful deep discovering atmosphere makes certain that data researchers remain productive," said Bob Olwig, vice president of Corporate Business Advancement, WWT. "ONTAP AI is a tested architecture from NetApp and NVIDIA that enhances WWT's broad portfolio of services and services for deep learning, giving customers an AI pile that could be carried out rapidly with higher effectiveness and lower risk.".
