NetApp has announced that NetApp EF600 all-flash NVMe storage combined with the BeeGFS parallel file system is now certified for NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD. The new certification appears to simplify artificial intelligence (AI) and high-performance computing (HPC) infrastructure to enable faster implementation of these use cases.
“The NetApp and NVIDIA alliance has delivered industry-leading innovation for years, and this new qualification for NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD builds on that momentum,” said Walid Issa, Senior Manager, PreSales and Solutions Engineering – Middle East Region at NetApp.
Charlie Boyle, Vice President of DGX systems at NVIDIA said, “our collaboration with NetApp enables customers building their own AI Centers of Excellence to now choose NetApp storage for their NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD, as well as use the same leading platform available as hosted infrastructure through NVIDIA DGX Foundry.”
NetApp’s portfolio of NVIDIA-accelerated solutions includes ONTAP AI to eliminate guesswork for faster adoption by using a field-proven reference architecture as well as a preconfigured, integrated solution that is easy to procure and deploy in a turnkey manner. Jointly, these companies offer customized solutions for a variety of industries, including financial services, medicine, manufacturing, retail, higher education, and government.
