Xanadu X-AI Storage Platform
Storage performance and flexibility for Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning
RAID Inc.’s X-AI Accelerated, Any–Scale (AI) solutions break new ground for Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Deep Learning (DL), providing unmatched flexibility for your organization’s AI needs. Engineered from the ground-up for the AI-enabled data center, X-AI solutions are optimized for ingest, training, data transformations, replication, metadata and small data transfers. RAID Inc. offers flexibility in platform choice with the all-flash NVMe X2-AI/X4-AI or the X500-AI, a hybrid flash and hard drive storage platform which leverages parallel access to flash and deeply expandable HDD storage. The X-AI storage platform supports a scale-out model with solutions starting at a few TBs yet scalable to 10s of PBs.
Fully Integrated, GPU-Optimized Data Platforms
Easy to deploy, RAID’s X-AI solutions are turn-key, pre-configured, and provide the most capable scale-out platform for capacity and performance.
Full GPU Saturation
Fully optimized for all types of I/O patterns and data layouts, the RAID Inc. X-AI storage solutions deliver data to applications, ensuring full GPU resource utilization even with distributed applications running on multiple computing servers. Performance testing on the RAID X-AI architecture has been conducted with all widely-used DL frameworks (TensorFlow, Horovod, Torch, PyTorch, NVIDIA® TensorRT™, Caffe, Caffe2, CNTK, MXNET and Theano). Using the X-AI intelligent client, containerized applications can engage the full capabilities of the data infrastructure, achieves full GPU saturation consistently for DL workloads.
RAID’s X-AI solutions allow for consolidation of hot training data and warm expanding data libraries into a single platform, providing easy data access from a unified interface.
Capacity-Efficient AI Storage
RAID’s X-AI storage solutions provide flexible capacity expansion options, with up to 360TB of scale-out NVM I400 appliances, or 5.4PB of hybrid storage in the X500-AI.
Highest Resiliency, Reliability, and Security at Scale
Engineered to provide the highest data availability and maximum system uptime, all X-AI hardware components are integrated as a fully redundant system.
Multi-Tenancy and Quota Support
RAID’s X-AI solutions can be secured on a per-tenant basis that ensure users and applications can only access the data that they’re entitled to. Advanced quota controls provide easy management of file system consumption at the user, group, and project level.
