SambaNova Systems Ushers in New Era of Computing with Availability of SambaNova DataScale — Built for AI
Announces world record-breaking performance, and the industry’s first Dataflow-as-a-Service offerings
SambaNova Systems, the company building the industry’s most advanced systems platform to develop and deploy next-generation artificial intelligence (AI) and data-intensive applications from the data center to the cloud and the edge, announced the availability of SambaNova Systems DataScale. Built on SambaNova Systems Reconfigurable Dataflow Architecture (RDA), SambaNova DataScale is optimized for dataflow from the algorithms to the silicon, enabling enterprises to bring new services and products to market faster than today’s state-of-the-art solutions. Also being announced is the industry’s first Dataflow-as-a-Service offering, making the record-breaking performance and accuracy of the SambaNova DataScale system available via a monthly subscription service.
“We are experiencing one of the biggest transitions in computing history since the internet,” said Rodrigo Liang, co-founder and CEO, SambaNova Systems. “This transition is already pushing the boundaries of what is possible with AI and giving us a clear view of what the future of computing will look like. AI has forced the industry to relook at how we design next-generation infrastructure for these complex machine learning workloads. There is a shift beyond transactional processing to AI that is redefining compute requirements beyond raw performance.”
SambaNova DataScale is a completely integrated software and hardware platform delivering unrivaled performance, accuracy, scale and ease of use. The platform’s out-of-the box performance and efficiency uses open source software and open standards to eliminate the need for low-level tuning. SambaNova DataScale is already empowering organizations to quickly and simply advance their AI innovations across a broad range of use cases, including natural language processing (NLP), high-resolution computer vision, recommender systems, AI for science, and more.
