Forward-Thinking Discussions Around AI

We also hosted a number of exciting presentations at our booth and in collaboration with our partners, including the following sessions:

Unlock 2024 Enterprise GenAI Initiatives with Vultr Cloud GPU and DDN: As organizations move from the art of the possible to achieving real outcomes in 2024 with generative AI, we talked about a new approach to cloud infrastructure combining Vultr and DDN to serve as a mandate for enterprise success.

Scaling for Growth with an Enterprise Architecture for Gen AI: What lessons can be learned from past epochs of global enterprise architecture? We hosted a session on how it’s time to rethink how organizations build, train, tune and deliver production inference for the next generation of AI-powered cloud applications.

Cloud HPC and GPU Accelerated Computing: GPUs are not only powering a wave of innovation in generative AI. GPUs, and cloud GPUs in particular, are changing the game in scientific research and HPC to unlock new academic research and enterprise potential to change the way we live and work.

With all the activity on the show floor, the exciting news and great presentations, we had an amazing time making new connections and participating in the DDN User Group, the DDN After Dark Party, and collaborating with Rescale, as well.
