AIRI White Paper

Complex infrastructure and legacy technologies stall many real-world AI initiatives.

AIRI — “AI-Ready Infrastructure,” built on Pure Storage FlashBlade and NVIDIA DGX-1, simplifies AI infrastructure for efforts 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 of 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. Regardless of the size or needs of your operation, ViON has the advanced expertise, technological tools, and skills required to design, build, and manage an effective AI infrastructure, specifically tailored to meet your organizational goals.
