Building the right data pipeline is crucial to AI success

AI workloads involving machine learning and deep learning have unique infrastructure requirements. So how can you craft the right architecture for AI?


"The success of ML and AI initiatives relies on orchestrating effective data pipelines that provision the high quality of data in the right formats in a timely manner during the different stages of the AI pipeline."

- Gartner

Proven AI leadership

The two most powerful computers on the planet - Summit and Sierra – are purpose built for AI, and both depend on IBM Storage.

AI demands the most from storage infrastructure. Spectrum Storage for AI featuring IBM Spectrum Scale provides the solid foundation and shared data service on which to build efficient, scalable data pipelines for AI and big data. Now it's easier than ever to deploy Spectrum Scale for AI and big data workloads.
