To achieve our mission, our GPU infrastructure needs high-speed accelerated file access to shared storage that is faster than what traditional scale-out file systems can deliver. That said - we’re also a fast-growing company and we don’t have the resources to become HPC storage technicians. VAST provides Zebra a solution to all of our A.I. storage challenges by delivering performance superior to what is possible with traditional NAS while also providing a simple, scalable appliance that requires no effort to deploy and manage.
Our mission to make biology easier to engineer is enabled by VAST Data making storage easy. Our output is exponentially increasing along with decreasing unit costs, so we are always looking for new technologies that enable us to increase output and reduce cost. VAST Data provides Ginkgo the potential to ride the declining cost curve of flash while also providing near-infinite scale.
As an early adopter of advanced storage systems, we’ve deployed scalable storage architectures to help HHS agencies to pioneer new scientific discoveries and improve public health. As our component Operating Divisions move beyond the hard drive era, software-enabled storage architectures helps us modernize our scientific agenda and enable AI-driven research with the power of flash.
VAST delivered an all-flash solution at a cost that not only allowed us to upgrade to all-flash and eliminate our storage tiers, but also saved us enough to pay for more GPUs to accelerate our research. This combination has enabled us to explore new deep-learning techniques that have unlocked invaluable insights in image reconstruction, image analysis, and image parcellation both today and for years to come.
