The future is Here, IBM Storage for Watsonx (Alp Tasdemir)
Generative AI, powered by foundation models has spurred an AI revolution that is further empowered by the democratization of data with the Lakehouse innovation. IBM’s next-generation AI and data platform, Watsonx, brings these enterprise capabilities together through watsonx.ai and Watsonx.data. Our session will describe how IBM Storage can enable, accelerate, and scale the adoption and deployment of Watsonx. Leveraging Storage Fusion HCI GPUs, watsonx.ai accelerates the training and fine-tuning of foundational models. With IBM Storage Fusion HCI data accelerator, remote object buckets can be cached and made available to all watsonx.data engines across a global namespace. IBM Ceph can provide a large-scale persistent data store for Lakehouse while HCI can also connect through a global data platform for accessing petabytes of unstructured data for AI training and fine-tuning.
