Today DDN announced that it received the Intel Technology Partner of the Year award for Datacenter Platforms. DDN was honored for the creation and success of its Infinite Memory Engine (IME) SSD enabling product family, which leverages Intel technologies and allows customers to accelerate time to insight, and simplify workflows and applications in on premise, hybrid and cloud environments.

We are honored to be recognized by our strategic partner, Intel. This award further validates our position as the world’s leading provider of data-intensive at-scale solutions,” said Alex Bouzari, chief executive officer, chairman and co-founder of DDN. “DDN’s data storage solutions provide our customers worldwide with the value-add flexibility, performance acceleration, advanced intelligent data management capabilities, and workflow simplification that are essential for on premise, hybrid cloud and public cloud requirements.”

Today’s massively data-intensive, real-time business, research, Deep Learning and Machine Learning environments put significant strains on storage, compute, and network resources, whether on premise, in public clouds or in hybrid cloud deployments. DDN’s IME NVMe SSD storage solutions enable organizations globally to flexibly optimize their data infrastructure, and apply resources when and where needed, in the most efficient, secure and cost-effective way possible.

Using Intel’s high-performance NVMe drives, including the Intel SSD DC P4510 Series, and Intel Xeon Scalable processors, DDN’s software defined IME accelerates I/O intensive workflows, Deep Learning and Machine Learning environments, and allows customers to gain the most from application and infrastructure investments. IME transforms tough I/O patterns into efficient storage optimized I/O, accelerating random reads and writes, shared file access, and high-concurrency and streaming workloads.

Intel appreciates the work that DDN has done in finding new and innovative ways to use Intel technology to bring new capabilities to the market by accelerating performance with new memory technologies,” said Jason Kimrey, general manager, U.S. channel scale and partners at Intel. “We congratulate them on their successes and look forward to our continued collaboration.”
