LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) August 26, 2020
AI Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global Artificial Intelligence (AI) market, today announced that DDN®, the global leader in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Data Management software and hardware solutions enabling Intelligent Infrastructure, has been selected as winner of the “Innovation Award for AI Hardware” for DDN’s A3I™ solutions.
Designed to be easy to acquire, configure, deploy and manage, DDN’s A3I (Accelerated, Any-Scale AI) solutions, a combination of DDN storage and data management, are fully integrated with systems like NVIDIA’s DGX™ and provide scale-out capabilities for AI workloads and GPU-enabled systems. This seamless scaling enables customers to grow from a single DGX system to a full NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD implementation with a universal AI data environment.
A3I client plugins for NVIDIA DGX systems and other GPU environments make them run fast out of the box with AI container workloads. Delivering an optimized datapath, A3I solutions overcome I/O difficulties previously considered insurmountable, accelerating performance intensive applications and scalable data science use cases.
“In addition to its core DNA driving higher levels of performance through parallelism and full-stack innovation, A3I solutions make the deployment of AI supercomputing infrastructure remarkably faster by delivering a simplified design that eliminates complexity and is easier to manage at scale,” said Paul Bloch, president and co-founder at DDN. “Ideal for hyperscale, financial services and pharmaceutical research use cases, A3I solutions are the foundational storage building block of the modern data center, proven through successful production deployments at massive scale and unifying AI training, inference and analytics in a single scalable powerful platform.”
The mission of the AI Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of AI and machine learning related categories, including AI platforms, Deep Learning, Smart Robotics, Business Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, industry specific AI applications and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 2,750 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.
“With AI applications creating some of the toughest data workloads in modern computing history, the reality is that many organizations entering the AI space simply do not have experience with this level of high-performance, data-intensive infrastructure,” said James Johnson, managing director, AI Breakthrough. “With infrastructure that can scale from POC to production, DDN is significantly reducing complexity for these organizations and we are thrilled to recognize DDN in the 2020 AI Breakthrough Awards program.”
As a leading AI Intelligent Infrastructure provider to financial services, healthcare, autonomous driving, and high-performance computing organizations, DDN has considerable expertise designing and deploying production-ready solutions for customers dealing with requirements at scale. For over 20 years, DDN has successfully deployed data-at-scale solutions for thousands of customers, and backed over 60 percent of the Top 100 supercomputing systems in the world.
