Vultr, the world’s largest privately-held cloud computing platform, announced that DDN®, the global leader in artificial intelligence (AI) and multi-cloud data management solutions, is the latest ecosystem partner to join the Vultr Cloud Alliance. By integrating DDN’s advanced data management solutions with Vultr’s high-performance, composable cloud infrastructure, data science and engineering teams gain optimised data operations, migration, and protection, which accelerates the implementation and scalability of AI initiatives across Vultr’s global network of 32 cloud data centre locations.
For organisations driving transformation through AI, the ability to optimise data infrastructure while benefiting from a dynamic cloud ecosystem is key. With this in mind, DDN and Vultr have partnered to enable enterprises to manage massive data volumes on Vultr’s dynamic cloud, accelerated by NVIDIA GPUs, simplifying data management and setting a new industry benchmark.
“Fast access to GPUs for dynamic workloads and data management for sophisticated AI models are two of the major bottlenecks every data science team faces,” said Kurt Kuckein, vice president of marketing at DDN. “Combining DDN’s robust storage for superior performance for large language models, generative AI, and machine learning applications with Vultr’s globally distributed best-in-class computing capabilities eliminates these barriers.”
DDN’s data management solutions and Vultr’s global cloud platform, coupled with the computational power of NVIDIA GPUs, are simplifying complex data management for AI and HPC workloads.
“Our partnership with DDN is the latest step in building our global ecosystem of technology partners to enable the next wave of AI innovation for businesses around the world,” said J.J. Kardwell, CEO of Vultr’s parent company, Constant. “Our joint offering provides optimal performance for LLMs, generative AI, and machine learning applications. Together, we are helping innovators advance their AI initiatives, while ensuring optimised data operations on a scalable cloud foundation.”
