Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR), a global provider of data center, colocation and interconnection solutions, has launched Data Hub featuring NVIDIA DGX systems. It would enable the rapid deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning workloads on Digital Realty’s PlatformDIGITAL. The Data Hub solution helps accelerate digital transformation by removing data gravity barriers for enterprises.
Digital Realty developed a pre-configured Data Hub footprint based on typical customer deployment scenarios on NVIDIA DGX and DGX POD configurations. The Digital Realty Data Hub solution provides the components and services that customers would need to solve global coverage, capacity and connectivity needs. The solution was designed to integrate seamlessly with pre-validated enterprise storage solutions from “leading” providers.
By deploying Data Hubs on Digital Realty’s PlatformDIGITAL, enterprises can create centers of data exchange to solve global coverage, capacity and connectivity needs. These centers of data exchange can be an ideal place to “securely” implement organizational AI and machine learning initiatives.
Delivered as part of NVIDIA DGX-Ready Data Center program, this Data Hub solution would accommodate a typical enterprise deployment of AI infrastructure to address the placement, connectivity and hosting of critical data infrastructure in proximity to users, networks, clouds and things. This would allow organizations to create a “unified, comprehensive solution that can be deployed in days to deliver best-in-class, AI-ready IT infrastructure and enable consistent experience, security and resilience on global networks.”
“Customers today need AI infrastructure that can break through data barriers and power the digital enterprise,” said Chris Sharp, CTO of Digital Realty. “As an NVIDIA DGX-Ready Data Center Program partner, Digital Realty provides customers with globally focused, unified data center services, coupled with extensive design and construction expertise, giving them the launch pad needed to achieve their AI and digital transformation goals.”
Data Compliance, Distribute BI
The new solution localizes data aggregation, staging, analytics, streaming and data management to optimize data exchange and maintain data compliance. It may empower businesses to deploy regional data lakes and distributed data warehouses, maintain optimal compliance and sovereignty, integrate public and private data sources and distribute business intelligence across the enterprise.
“Our customers use AI to drive their business transformation, but don’t always have facilities designed to meet the unique demands of AI workloads in their data center,” said Tony Paikeday, director of product marketing for DGX systems at NVIDIA. “Digital Realty offers a simplified, cost-effective means to host NVIDIA DGX POD infrastructure in world-class environments optimized for our solutions.”
