NetApp to demonstrate business impact of AI
NetApp has announced that it will showcase Artificial Intelligence (AI) and cloud solutions during its participation at GITEX Technology Week 2018. As most businesses’ approach to data continues to play an important role in their success with AI, NetApp will showcase its ONTAP AI proven architecture, powered by NVIDIA DGX supercomputers and NetApp AFF A800 cloud-connected all-flash storage. NVIDIA will also be present at NetApp’s GITEX booth C6-20, located at Hall No 6 (Cloud Hall), at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Additional highlights featured at GITEX 2018 will include NetApp HCI, NetApp Cloud Volumes, and NetApp AFF (All Flash FAS).
Fadi Kanafani, Senior Director Middle East & Africa at NetApp, said: “The control over distributed data stores ensuring the availability of complete and accessible data for AI projects remains a challenge in the region. Despite the increasing adoption of new AI technologies, the approach to data has become a key differentiator of success for every leading company. Our GITEX participation will focus on this aspect. Furthermore, we will use the event to network and explore new prospects; to build on brand awareness and to equip partners and customers with the knowledge and skill sets they need in their constant efforts to protect and manage data.”
Along with it partners NEC and Fujitsu, NetApp will highlight its joint CCTV solutions; and NFLEX Converged Infrastructure platform at GITEX. A virtual reality (VR) Flight Simulator will give visitors the opportunity to combine fitness and VR by creating an exciting experience by gaming and sport.
