Accelerating mainstream workloads

7500 SSD… the world’s most advanced mainstream PCIe Gen4 data center SSD and the first with 200+ layer NAND.

The Micron 7500 NVMeTM SSD is the world’s most advanced mainstream PCIe Gen4 data center SSD and the first with 200+ layer NAND. It is built with leading-edge technology to deliver low and consistent QoS latency, superior performance across a wide range of workloads, and offers broad support for Open Compute Project (OCP) features in standard firmware. The 7500 SSD is a versatile solution that delivers the performance required by complex and critical business workloads.

Maximize capacity and performance for massive AI storage

6500 ION… boosts AI’s multitasking in data lakes

Micron 6500 ION SSDs can ingest a 100TB data lake four days faster than HDDs1 and 48% faster than competitor’s latest capacity-focused SSD2. This significantly reduces GPU idle time, improving AI investment returns.

AI inference — or the ability of a trained model to make predictions, solve problems and complete tasks in the real world — is tied to the availability of highcapacity, high-speed and reliable memory, which is needed to perform the millions of calculations necessary to successfully run an AI model.

Similar to AI training memory requirements, inference demands fast, high-density memory to store trained models while feeding the data to CPUs and GPUs for processing. However, not all workloads require 128GB DDR5 densities, and you can achieve comparable throughput with 96GB DDR5 at a lower cost.

Training AI takes time, but there are ways to reduce this by making it more efficient. A particular problem that AI runs into is the idle time in the flow of training. Not only does this slow down training, but it muddies the process as the computer takes advantage of idle time to deal with background processes. A big problem with this is not only the time it takes away from the CPU and GPU cores working, but the expense it incurs from that hesitation in working such expensive elements. Smart storage solutions offer a smoother feed of information to AI. Test data shows that is exactly what Micron 9400 NVMe SSDs can do.

While testing storage for AI workloads is a challenging task because running actual training can require specialty hardware that may be expensive and can change quickly, this is where MLPerf comes in to help test storage for AI workloads.
