As Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) evolve, the workloads customers are leveraging AI and ML for are becoming increasingly mission critical. We are seeing a greater number of workloads that require extreme performance because of their real-time nature. Whether it's credit card fraud detection and prevention, real time facial recognition, autonomous driving, or high frequency trading models, AI is revolutionizing the world we live in.
The infrastructure supporting such workloads has historically been complex and cumbersome to deploy and manage. The introduction of ONTAP AI aims at simplifying the deployment of an AI/ML infrastructure to enable companies to focus on the high value of AI/ML models and not the infrastructure that supports it. ONTAP AI provides customers with predictable performance in a well documented, easy to acquire, easy to consume reference architecture built on familiar technologies: NVIDIA DGX compute, ONTAP NVME storage, and Cisco networking equipment.
