VAST Data Achieves NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD Certification, Offering Simple and Scalable Enterprise File Services to Supercharge Generative AI Infrastructure

VAST Data, the data platform company for the AI era, announced that VAST’s Data Platform is now a certified datastore for NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD™. This new validation provides organizations with agile, scalable performance for the most challenging machine learning and deep learning workloads, including generative AI.

The VAST Data Platform brings to market the first enterprise network attached storage (NAS) solution approved to support NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD. NVIDIA customers can now enjoy the simplicity of the VAST data platform with virtually limitless levels of scale and performance via a system architecture that eliminates data tiers and infrastructure silos to make large scale AI simpler, faster and easier to manage.

With VAST, customers go beyond the definitions of classical high performance computing (HPC) storage with an exabyte-scale data platform that provides enterprise-levels of systems and data management, featuring capabilities such as:

Encryption, authentication and external key management along with a data catalog to help customers manage their data and data security in real time.

VAST’s multi-tenant approach is ideal for GPU service providers by providing tenant domains for securing and isolating data as well as tenant-level QOS controls to provide performance fairness.

VAST systems save customers money by being designed for hyperscale QLC flash and by applying next-generation global data reduction algorithms, customers on average realize data reduction of nearly 3:1 across VAST’s fleet of deployments.

VAST systems better protect data by providing support for n-1 and 1-n replication topologies and up to 1 million ransomware-proof snapshots.

System expansions are always online, as are software upgrades.

This feature-rich platform delivers tremendous value to customers, so much so that VAST has received a “100 percent willingness to recommend” by its customers, as reported by Gartner® Peer Insights™.
