Workload Portability Enabled by a Modern Storage Platform

In this sponsored post, Shailesh Manjrekar, Head of AI and Strategic Alliances, WekaIO, explores what is meant by “data portability,” and why it’s important. Looking at a customer pipeline, the customer context could be a software defined car, any IoT edge point, a drone, a smart home, a 5G tower, etc. In essence, we’re describing an AI pipeline which runs over an edge, runs over a core, and runs over a cloud. Therefore we have three high-level components for this pipeline.
