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.

Unified Namespace

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.
