Blistering performance for AI workflows

Today’s AI servers consume and analyse data at much higher rates than traditional storage solutions can deliver. Resulting in low GPU utilisation and dramatically extending training times as well as decreasing productivity.

PNY, NVIDIA’s global partner, has been developed the 3S-2400 from the ground up for AI workloads and NVIDIA DGX optimisation. Delivering ultra-low latency and tremendous bandwidth at a price which allows more investment to be made on GPU resource and less on expensive, slower storage.

Ensure your project’s funds are better spent and your team are more productive, by taking full advantage of the DGX compatibility.

Start small. Scale only when needed

Unlike most storage solutions where the initial investment dictates future growth and performance, often resulting in the need to overspend for potential future growth. PNY’s NVmesh design can scale in stages to suit syour project without any limitation. Just purchase the capacity and performance you need today and feel secure that as you scale, so can your capacity and performance.

Bundled options to simplify choice and ensure plug & play installation

With years of experience supplying and supporting GPU installations, from new-starts pioneering AI to industry leaders, Scan have learned the value of simplicity when it comes to storage. By creating simple and AI focused bundles, regardless of your project’s stage, there is a proven solution which will provide demonstrable results instantly.

With an experienced team of storage architects ready to assist you with the technology and choices, storage has never been so simple, affordable, and accessible.

Simple connection to single or multiple GPU servers

Unlike most storage solutions where the initial investment dictates future growth and performance, often resulting in the need to overspend for potential future growth. PNY’s NVmesh design can scale in stages to suit your project without any limitation. Just purchase the capacity and performance you need today and feel secure that as you scale, so can your capacity and performance.

Enhanced fault tolerance

The special 3S-2400P series models provide enhanced fault tolerance compared to the standard 3S-2400 models.

The configuration is based upon Erasure Coding, a scalable RAID-Like protection which provides various levels of resilience. The recommended configuration, including any additional scale-out units, is x + 2, meaning x data drives and 2 parity drives. In this configuration the data and parity are distributed in blocks and not just on one drive.

For example, with 12x 15TB drives a single S3-2400P unit has a raw capacity of 180TB. However, with Erasure Coding Protection enabled and the equivalent of 2 drives’ capacity being used for Parity the useable capacity drops to 150TB. This is just one example of the many configurations supported by the 3S-2400P. Our technical team can advise on the optimum configuration for your requirements and budget.
