Pure Storage announces AIRI, an all in-in-one machine-learning platform designed to ease enterprises’ foray into artificial intelligence.

AIRI or AI-Ready Infrastructure, is engineered as a fully integrated software and hardware solution by Pure Storage and NVIDIA. The system allows data scientists to run AI simulations enabling data scientists to jumpstart their AI initiatives in hours, not weeks or months, the company says.

Charles Giancarlo, the CEO of Pure Storage touts AI’s capacity to significantly improve the quality of all of our lives. “Safer autonomous vehicles will save tens of thousands of lives and make us more efficient. AI-driven advances in life sciences have made preventative healthcare a current reality rather than a vague future possibility. AI will provide highly personalised experiences for the consumer, while keeping online communities safer. AIRI will accelerate AI research, enabling innovators to more rapidly make advances to create a better world with data.”

AIRI is powered by Pure Storage FlashBlade storage platform and four NVIDIA DGX-1 supercomputers, delivering four petaFLOPS of performance with NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs. These systems are interconnected with Arista 100GbE switches, supporting GPUDirect RDMA for maximum distributed training performance. AIRI is supported by the NVIDIA GPU Cloud deep learning stack and Pure Storage AIRI Scaling Toolkit.

“AI has evolved from hypothetical future technology to a business-critical strategic asset. There is increased adoption of AI across all verticals, driving new business models, sharper value propositions, more efficient processes, and personalised user experiences,” said Ritu Jyoti, Research Director, Infrastructure: Cognitive/AI and Big Data Analytics Workloads, IDC.  “Innovative technologies from Pure Storage and NVIDIA have enabled the accelerated adoption of AI, and together they provide organisations with an optimised, easy-to-use and robust solution for any AI workload.”

AIRI is available now through select reseller partners.
