Quantum Corp. (NASDAQ: QMCO) today announced that Eric Bassier, Quantum’s senior director of product marketing, will present at the inaugural ISC 2020 Digital high performance computing (HPC) -focused event, held June 22 – 25, 2020. Bassier’s participation in the online event underscores Quantum’s leadership in storing and managing large unstructured datasets that are common in the HPC community, and follows the addition of the ActiveScale™ object storage software and appliances to the company’s product portfolio earlier this year.
Bassier will discuss how the fields of AI and machine learning are at the forefront of driving innovation and discoveries across the globe. These fields generate massive datasets that require extremely fast processing, continuous analytics, as well as long-term protection and preservation. These requirements put pressure on traditional storage infrastructures, which are driving many research institutions to leverage new technologies including GPUs, NVMe, erasure-encoded object storage, and more.
In his presentation, Bassier will discuss:
- Key considerations for machine learning at scale.
- Reference architectures based on customer deployments.
- Options for the long-term preservation of machine learning data.
