AI/ML/DL storage workflow phases and their I/O challenges

AI/ML Workflow Phases

Why SwiftStack for AI/ML/DL data pipelines?

Cloud Native Architecture ✓

SwiftStack’s cloud-native architecture is a transformative storage platform for AI, ML and DL workflows. Traditional storage architectures are not designed for these new distributed workloads and fall short of performance, scale and value.

Ingest

  • Enables hundreds of GB/s high ingest with massive concurrency and throughput to match the GPU compute layer parallelism

  • Provides broad application and protocol support for enterprise applications ingest with POSIX compliant filesystem (over NFS or SMB) as well as cloud native applications (AWS S3 or Swift APIs)

Enrich

  • Supports rich metadata tagging, for contextualizing, supervised learning and other workflows

  • Metadata search integration to isolate data sets

  • Leverage SwiftStack 1space for lifecycle management with metadata tagging

Train

  • In-place neural net training, with native S3 support for TensorFlow frameworks

  • Massive read bandwidth

  • Architectural separation of compute and storage enables massive scalability of training datasets

  • SwiftStack 1space enables cloud-bursting for best and cost efficient on-premises or across cloud GPU compute farms

Infer

  • Enables Inferencing at the edge or core

Retain

  • Policy based lifecycle management with metadata tagging, cloud tier, governance, massive scale with best economics

SwiftStack | AI Reference Architecture

  • Put valuable GPU cycles to work
    • Accelerate your data pipelines with SwiftStack
  • Bring Cloud and AI to your data
    • Use a multi-cloud workflow to extend
    • Use versioning
    • Universal access
  • Don’t drown in your data
    • Leverage metadata labeling and search to extract value
  • Don’t break your bank building AI/ML pipelines
