Why NetApp and PNY for artificial intelligence?

The process of operationalizing AI requires massive amounts of data to flow unhindered through a five-stage pipeline, from ingest through archive. As enterprises of all types embrace AI technologies, they face data challenges (aka bottlenecks) from edge to core to cloud.​

​As the data authority on hybrid cloud, NetApp delivers AI solutions that remove bottlenecks at the edge, core, and cloud to enable more efficient data collection, accelerated AI workloads, and smoother cloud integration. PNY Technologies offers what is best in term of solutions for AI,

Unleash the capabilities of your data scientists


Run 5 times more data through your pipeline

<60 seconds

Copy datasets in seconds rather than hours or days

~20 minutes

Configure your AI infrastructure with Ansible integration

Get your data flowing from edge to core to cloud

With a cloud-first strategy, PNY AI Storage and the NetApp suite of products handle AI and ML data movement from edge to core to  cloud.

Drive intelligence at the edge

The amount of data generated by smart edge devices and a large number of ingestion points can overwhelm compute, storage, and networks at the edge. NetApp AI solutions allow edge-level analytics to process and selectively pass on data during ingest, create different tiers of data service, and speed up data movement.

Power training in the core

The core is the heart of your AI data pipeline, and it demands high I/O performance. From preprocessing data so it’s most valuable to feeding the data to the neural networks for model training, NetApp AI solutions for the core remove performance bottlenecks and accelerate AI workloads.​​​

Accelerate analysis in the cloud

The benefits of the cloud can be leveraged for AI in several ways, including cold storage tiering, backing up, and archiving. The cloud also offers an ideal environment to begin development of AI workflows, run proofs of concept, and form a foundation to expand on.
