The business VAST DATA NAS platform has now been officially approved as a storage platform for Nvidia’s DGX SuperPOD AI development platform.
According to VAST DATA, its platform is the first NAS solution certified to handle large volumes of AI and deep learning workloads. The approval now provides users with a certified datastore for Nvidia DGX SuperPOD, according to the specialist in high-performance (HPC) storage.
This should help them with scalable performance for machine learning and deep learning workloads, such as generative AI solutions. The idea is that this will make AI easier and faster to use, but also easier to manage
VAST DATA has been working with Nvidia since 2016 to integrate (NAS) high-performance storage systems and AI solutions.
DASE architecture as a basis
Under the hood, VAST DATA offers its own DASE architecture that should expand the possibilities of high-performance storage even further. This is to make data tiers and infrastructure silos a thing of the past
Functionality provided by this architecture includes encryption, authentication and remote key management capabilities in addition to a data catalog. This is to better manage the management and security of data.
The multi-tenant architecture of the VAST DATA platform should provide GPU service providers with the right tenant domains for securing and isolating data, as well as providing QOS control capabilities.
In addition, VAST DATA systems provide cost savings and enhanced protection capabilities with n-1 and 1-n replication technologies and up to 1 million ransomware-protected snapshots.
