PLYMOUTH, Mass. and ANDOVER, Mass., Nov. 9, 2018 — Microway and RAID Inc. jointly announced a new collaboration to deliver AI Compute + Data Solutions together. These solutions will be delivered as a unified deployment and single customer experience. Acknowledging the importance of creating comprehensive solutions for end-to-end AI workflows, the companies are combining forces to deliver high throughput solutions for both the compute and data planes of an AI pipeline.
Together, the two companies will offer an array of integrated solutions, called Microway-RAID AI Deployment Blocks, for both existing and new customers–as well as offering them unique 3-way design workshops to help customers create, size, and even benchmark solutions for their precise AI workloads.
Customers will receive fully integrated deployments that are ready to run AI Frameworks, and feed them their whole datasets, on day 1—as well as optional onsite deployment and training services.
“A solution for Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence is so much more than just the compute layer.” said Ann Fried, CEO of Microway, “Far too many providers ignore the importance of the data plane for AI. An AI solution is only as fast as the data flow that can be fed to it, and we’re excited to deepen our collaboration with RAID Inc for the benefit of our customers”
“Microway-RAID AI Deployment Blocks are a full-stack AI solution built for the unique requirements for AI and Deep Learning, said Marc DiZoglio, president of RAID Inc. “Our best-in-class storage provides another critical link towards achieving optimal performance for the entire AI workload, and our collaboration with Microway demonstrates how RAID’s partner network continues to be a strategic asset to drive operational efficiency for our mutual customers.”
The A3I + NVIDIA DGX-1 solution is available for purchase immediately. Customers interested in the full breadth of Microway and RAID Inc solutions may contact our expert Technical Architects on either the RAID Inc or Microway consultative sales teams.About RAID Inc.
