Solving AI Cluster Design Challenges with a Building Block Approach

[SPONSORED POST] When considering a large complex system, such as an AI cluster, supercomputer, or compute cluster, you may think you only have two options—build from scratch from the ground up, or buy a pre-configured, supercomputer-in-a-box from a major technology vendor that everyone else is buying. But there is a third option that takes a best-of-both-worlds approach. This gives you “building blocks” expertly designed around network, storage, and compute configurations that are balanced, but also flexible enough to provide scalability for your specific project needs.
