Partners Offer Storage Strategies For Machine Learning

Vexata, in collaboration with partner GPL Technologies, exhibits its transformative Scalable File Storage System at GTC 2018, booth No. 2237 from March 26–29. The Vexata File Solution targets demanding AI, machine and deep learning workloads. By combining the VX- 100F Scalable Flash Array, powered by the company's VX-OS software with a high-performance file system, the Vexata File Solution enables organizations to support and accelerate next-gen data pipelines and reduce time to market.


Vexata and GPL will showcase how this solution significantly eliminates input-output bottlenecks in data centers without requiring customers to re-architect their IT infrastructure. The result is faster performance at all layers of the data center stack and reduce costs related to underutilized equipment.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


Vexata pairs what it calls the fastest all-flash storage system on the market today with the VX-100FS file storage system to create a scalable storage system with a high-performance file front end. The Vexata VX-100FS File Storage System combines:

  • The VX-100F Scalable Storage System
  • The enterprise-hardened IBM Spectrum Scale file system software running on up to four standard dual socket Intel Xeon servers 

The result is a scalable file storage system, supporting industry-standard NFSv3 and GPFS distributed file system protocols at 1M+ random file IOPS, 50GB/s read, 20GB/s write bandwidth, 30 GB/s of mixed bandwidth and up to 180TB of protected capacity. In addition, the new system supports file-based snapshots/clones and replication, as well as data-at-rest encryption.
