AIRI – Artificial Intelligence Ready Infrastructure

Many real-world AI initiatives are stalled by complex infrastructure and legacy technologies. AIRI — “AI-Ready Infrastructure,” built on Pure Storage FlashBlade™ and NVIDIA DGX-1 simplifies AI infrastructure for initiatives at any scale.  It is built with a complete software stack, meaning you get up and running in a few hours, rather than weeks or months.  ViON provides the ability to deploy AIRI as a solution on-prem or as-a-Service, for flexible procurement options.

Architected by Pure Storage and NVIDIA and delivered by ViON, AIRI is purpose-built to enable data architects, scientists and business leaders to extend the power NVIDIA DGX-1 systems with the massively-parallel, all-flash performance of Pure FlashBlade™.  AIRI is an essential tool for data scientists to run critical training workloads at scale – while slashing time-to-insight from weeks to hours.

With AIRI You Get:

  • Fast – AIRI powers multi-node deep learning out-of-the-box, delivering linear-scale performance for critical training workloads. It’s built on state-of-the-art technologies like RDMA over 100Gb Ethernet and leading software tools.
  • Simple – Get started in hours, not weeks. NVIDIA GPU Cloud Deep Learning Stack delivers optimized frameworks immediately – while the AIRI Scale-out Training Kit enables a quick start on multi-DGX-1 training workloads.
  • Future-Proof – The most advanced platform for real-world AI, AIRI also offers the simplest scalable architecture for demands at any scale. Add GPUs for faster training, and/or add blades for bigger datasets. AIRI grows with your AI workload needs – without downtime.
  • As-a-Service Delivery – ViON allows AIRI to be procured as an on-premises solution, or as-a-service to simplify complexity and reduce the burden of managing infrastructure.  The ViON MarketPlace, a secure platform for IT-as-a-Service, lets you research options, compare features, request quotes and manage your services.

GIS – Nutanix & NVIDIA GRID Technology

Nutanix Hyperconverged Infrastructure HCI, teamed with NVIDIA server-based graphics cards organizations to deliver a cost-effective solution to support GIS Desktop applications on VDI.  The Nutanix HCI-based approach to enterprise cloud with NVIDIA GRID technology ensures that once your GIS systems are established in a centralized data center, your GIS applications will scale and perform well – even as your GIS user community grows to hundreds or even thousands of desktop users.  Supported by ViON’s Data Center as-a-Service (DCaaS) delivery model,  ViON removes the complexity of managing the GIS infrastructure, while mitigating cost constraints through an OpEx consumption model.

Why Nutanix, NVIDIA and ViON for GIS:

  • Nutanix Hyper-Converged Infrastructure, ideally suited to support scalable VDIs
  • NVIDIA Cuda GRID GPU Cards for an exponential increase in server performance
  • On-premise cloud-like infrastructure based on web-scale architecture
  • Out-of-the-box security hardened with native monitoring and remediation that brings automation to security incident response and threat assessment processes.
  • Supports U.S. government IT modernization policies like Security First, Cloud First and FITARA
  • U.S government proven and accredited
  • VION’s Data Center as-a-Service removes the complexity and reduces the burden of managing a GIS environment without the up-front investment
