VAST Data and Run:ai announce full-stack AI solution

VAST Data announced its partnership with Run: ai, the leader in computing orchestration for AI workloads.

The collaboration between both companies hopes to redefine AI operations at scale, offering a full-stack solution encompassing computing, storage, and data management.

VAST and Run:ai will be addressing the critical needs of enterprises embarking on large-scale AI initiatives by streamlining accelerated NVIDIA AI infrastructure across private, public, and hybrid clouds.

The platform supports data scientists’ interactive environments and improves large-scale training and reliable, scalable inference with the use of future-proof, collaborative features which integrate with a broad ecosystem of industry leaders.

The VAST Data Platform exemplified this with unified storage, database, and containerised compute engine services into a single, scalable software platform that powers AI and GPU-accelerated tools in modern data centres and clouds.

Renen Hallak, CEO and co-founder of VAST Data said of the partnership: “We’ve recognized that customers need a more holistic approach to AI operations.

“Our partnership with Run:ai transcends traditional, disparate AI solutions, integrating all of the components necessary for an efficient AI pipeline. Today’s announcement offers data-intensive organizations across the globe the blueprint to deliver more efficient, effective, and innovative AI operations at scale.”

The platform provides full-stack visibility for resource and data management alongside cloud service provider-ready infrastructure and optimised end-to-end AI pipelines.

Omri Geller, CEO and co-founder at Run:ai explained: “A key challenge in the market is providing equitable access to compute resources for diverse data science teams.

“Our collaboration with VAST emphasizes unlocking the maximum performance potential within complex AI infrastructures and greatly extends visibility and data management across the entire AI pipeline. This is a first of its kind partnership that will provide immense value to our joint customers.”

VAST and Run:ai blueprints, solution briefs, and demos will be first available at NVIDIA GTC 2024 at Booth number 1424.
