Why Storage Infrastructure Choices Matter for Data-Intensive Organizations

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Deep Learning (DL) are essential business and research tools which provide organizations with valuable insights into their data. However, the complexity of processing and storing this data requires an optimized data path and a storage solution capable of handling these workloads whether in an on-premises datacenter, via the cloud, or a hybrid infrastructure. Legacy storage solutions are not designed for the low-latency, highly parallel, mixed workload requirements found in many stages of the AI data lifecycle.

Building the right AI-enabled environment including compute, networks, applications, and storage takes foresight and planning whether using on- premises, cloud, or a hybrid infrastructure. An AI-enabled datacenter requires intelligent infrastructure that provides flexibility, speed at any scale, and data insight to successfully leverage the value of data. This paper describes how an integrated intelligent infrastructure and optimized data path with AI-enabled storage is required to meet these challenges.

A Modern Converged Platform to Boost Smart Medical Workloads

Health data capture, precise data analysis and machine assisted diagnosis are a big focus of the precision medical field. It is critical that medical organizations and researchers have a method for efficiency, simplification, and scalability to run precision medicine workloads. An optimized infrastructure is required to meet the needs of GPU systems capable of running precision medicine applications and workloads. Read this paper now to learn the benefits for:

This paper describes how Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT) developed the QCT POD for Medical (QPM) platform specifically designed to meet the needs for life science customers. QCT provides an on-premises rack-level system for the healthcare industry. To reach greater flexibility and scaling, QPM offers common building blocks to meet different medical demands, like Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), Molecular Dynamics (MD), and Image Recognition. In addition, QCT optimized the QPM solution to automate launching the NVIDIA Clara application framework for AI-powered imaging and genomics.

Speed up Innovation with performance gains of up to 42% on the most powerful HPC Cloud

Oracle’s next generation HPC architecture with Intel compute instance based on 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, code named "Ice Lake", changes the game for HPC in the Cloud. The new HPC Bare Metal instance delivers performance gains of up to 42% compared to the previous generation HPC instance. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure with Intel’s 3rd generation processors also offers the flexibility to choose the right combination of cores and memory to suit workloads. The price per core-hour stays the same as the previous HPC instance, across all Oracle Cloud regions. This combination of improved performance and flat pricing translates to faster simulations and big cost savings.

Join Oracle and Intel and learn how customers are increasing performance for HPC workloads across batch processing, video encoding, electronic design automation (EDA), distributed analytics, data science, AI, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
