Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York has selected DDN’s A3I AI400X all-NVME flash appliance storage for fast optimum experimental design for its Computational Science Initiative (CSI).

With the DDN AI storage solution, Brookhaven National Laboratory, one of 10 national laboratories overseen and primarily funded by the Office of Science of the US Department of Energy,

plans to expand its project portfolio and Advanced Computing Lab (ACL).

CSI’s ACL is comprised of high-performance systems and software architectures and will leverage the AI400X to provide a collaborative environment for scientists and technologists from government laboratories and academia agencies.

CSI’s ACL helps to address Big Data questions and challenges in data-intensive applications.

With the on-going consolidation of its computing infrastructure, Brookhaven National Laboratory will provide an opportunity for scientific user capabilities to other research centers via an enhanced data analysis ecosystem. Such technology that facilitates fast data transfer from experimental instruments to the ACL’s analysis system and storage will provide prime use cases for A3I with NVIDIA DGX systems.

The AI400X, connected to the NVIDIA DGX-2, enhances CSI’s system capabilities for AI workloads in the data center. Delivering the fastest performance for AI workflows at any scale, the AI400X provides up to 48GBps of throughput, more than 3 million IOPS and up to 256TB of usable NVMe capacity in a 2U form factor.
