How to Evaluate Different Storage Options for Artificial Intelligence Workloads
Published: May 5, 2021 Content info: 15 Pages
Description

This IDC Perspective discusses the challenge of choosing the right storage infrastructure for artificial intelligence workloads, pointing out considerations and features that can help enterprises select the right storage infrastructure for their artificial intelligence workloads. Artificial intelligence workloads are becoming more popular in enterprises undergoing digital transformation. Although enterprises initially tried to run them on traditional scale-out file system platforms, it is becoming clear that many of them have workload requirements that present real challenges for these legacy architectures."Choosing the right storage infrastructure for artificial intelligence workloads requires an excellent understanding of an enterprise's data pipeline and business requirements," said Eric Burgener, research vice president, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms, and Technologies Group at IDC. "IDC recommends that customers closely investigate five areas - performance, availability and resiliency, flexibility, ease of use, and infrastructure efficiency and cost - before making any 'storage for AI' purchase decisions."
