Live Webinar | Accelerate Your AI Path to Production: Streamline model training at scale with Alluxio | Aug 14, 11:00am PT

Organizations are retooling their enterprise data infrastructure in the race for AI/ML. However, growing datasets, extensive data engineering overhead, high GPU costs, and expensive specialized storage can make it difficult to get fast results from model development.

The data access layer is the key to accelerating your path to AI/ML. In this webinar, Roland Theron, Senior Solutions Engineer at Alluxio, will discuss how the data access layer can help you:

  • Build AI architecture on your existing data lake without the need for specialized hardware.
  • Streamline the time-consuming process of managing data copies in data engineering.
  • Speed up training workloads with high GPU utilization.
  • Achieve optimal concurrency to deliver models to inference clusters for demanding applications.
