Supermicro, Vast collaborate to deliver turnkey AI storage at rack scale


Supermicro and Vast Data are collaborating to deliver a turnkey, full-stack solution for creating and expanding AI deployments. This joint solution is aimed at hyperscalers, cloud service providers (CSPs) and large, data-centric enterprises. Vast, founded in 2016, offers a software data platform that enterprises and CSPs use for data-intensive computing. The platform is based on a distributed systems architecture, called DASE, that allows a system to run read and write operations at any scale. By formalizing this collaboration, they hope to extend their reach to new customers while increasing their sell-through to current customers. Vast is also looking to the Supermicro alliance to expand its global reach. Now Vast and Supermicro have developed a new converged system using Supermicro’s Hyper A+ servers with AMD EPYC 9004 processors. Rack-scale configurations can cut costs by eliminating the need for single-box redundancy. This converged design makes the system more scalable and more cost-efficient. One highlight of the joint project: It puts Vast’s DASE architecture on Supermicro’s industry-standard servers. Each server will have both the compute and storage functions of a Vast cluster.
