This reference architecture describes a hybrid cloud solution that can handle existing enterprise workloads (like using SQL and NoSQL databases for transactional processing) but also extends capabilities to include compute- and memory-hungry artificial intelligence (AI) jobs. From data warehousing to machine learning and deep learning, the Hybrid Cloud Data Analytics Solution is just what enterprises need as data volumes continue to swell and data centers are increasingly pressured to provide real-time insights to launch their businesses into the future.
The Hybrid Cloud Data Analytics Solution can handle existing enterprise workloads (like using SQL and NoSQL databases for transaction processing), but also extend capabilities to include compute- and memory-hungry AI jobs (like using machine-learning algorithms to perform inferencing on new data). This solution is a unique combination of the latest hardware innovations from Intel, VMware’s broad ...portfolio of virtualization software products, container orchestration, and AI tools are optimized to run on 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors. These processors feature built-in inferencing acceleration through Intel® Deep Learning Boost (Intel® DL Boost) with Vector Neural Network Instructions (VNNI). With this easy-to-deploy and comprehensive solution, enterprises can quickly operationalize database processing and AI and unlock the insights hidden in their data—and scale the solution as future needs dictate.
Anqlave Data Vault* (ADV*) helps solve the secret-management problem by allowing users to create, store, transport, and use secrets with improved security. ADV helps ensure that secrets are not available in plaintext, whether at rest, in motion, or in use. Secrets receive protection at rest and in motion using encryption, and they are used inside protected memory regions, called enclaves, which are created using Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX).
NVM Express* (NVMe*) has been rapidly adopted by enterprise and cloud customers as their primary storage media interface. Intel® Optane™ DC Solid State Drives (SSDs), combined with NVMe, deliver fast write and read performance and high endurance for intensive storage tasks and the most demanding workloads. RAIDIX, a developer of high-performance storage systems, created RAIDIX ERA* software to be optimized for NVMe and Intel Optane DC technologies. Tests performed by RAIDIX show how dramatically RAIDIX ERA outperforms open source software–based systems.
