The dawn of the AI-era presents enterprises with a unique opportunity for innovation and competitive advantage. That’s why Pure and NVIDIA architected AIRI™ and AIRI “Mini” – the first integrated solutions for AI-at-scale.
Architected by Pure Storage and NVIDIA, AIRI is purpose-built to enable data architects, scientists and business leaders to extend the power of the NVIDIAⓇ DGX-1™ system. With AIRI Mini, organizations of all sizes and budgets can implement a simple, powerful solution to build competitive advantage through AI at a price point that’s accessible for virtually any organization in any industry.
AI represents an unprecedented opportunity for organizations to improve operations, deliver better customer experiences, and drive business performance through data-driven initiatives. According to a recent MIT Technology Review study, 82 percent of business and IT leaders believe AI is poised to have a positive impact on their industry. AIRI Mini offers a way for organizations to get started, and scales easily as their AI initiatives grow.
Engineered as a fully-integrated software and hardware solution by Pure Storage and NVIDIA, AIRI Mini provides a simple, yet powerful, architecture that empowers organizations with the data-centric infrastructure needed to harness the true power of AI.
AIRI Mini is powered by one Pure Storage FlashBlade, the industry’s first storage platform architected for modern analytics and AI, configured with 7x 17TB blades, and two NVIDIA DGX-1 servers, delivering two petaFLOPS of deep learning performance. These systems are interconnected with 100GbE switches, supporting GPUDirect RDMA for maximum distributed training performance. AIRI also leverages the NVIDIA GPU Cloud deep learning software stack for maximum GPU performance, and the Pure Storage AIRI Scaling Toolkit, optimized for multi-node training with DGX-1 and FlashBlade. With this integrated stack, data scientists can jumpstart their AI initiatives in hours, not weeks or months.
Pure also announced that both AIRI and AIRI Mini are now available with Nexus9000 100Gb Ethernet switches from Cisco. Cisco and Pure’s thousands of mutual customers can now take advantage of additional joint solutions as they embrace new initiatives around
