DDN announced that it has earned its fourth "AI Hardware Innovation Award," resulting in five consecutive annual award recognitions in the prestigious AI Breakthrough Awards program. For the past seven years, AI Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization, has recognized the top companies, technologies, and products in the AI market globally. 

This year, DDN was commended for the newest addition to its industry-leading AI solutions portfolio that serves various industries by efficiently unlocking the full capabilities of customers' GPU-based infrastructure, the AI400X2 Turbo. Introduced at the beginning of 2024, the AI400X2 Turbo builds on the strength of DDN's trusted and proven AI appliances and was specifically developed for the most demanding AI customers, like GPU clouds, national AI cloud providers and generative AI developers.

"As organizations continue to amplify their AI applications and expand data capacity, they need solutions that can handle these massive workloads at an even faster rate," said Steve Johansson, managing director, AI Breakthrough. "DDN's AI400X2 Turbo supplies faster performance and expanded connectivity options, leading to increased efficiency of AI frameworks and software libraries, and high-performing GPUs. We're so pleased to recognize the AI400X2 Turbo with our ‘AI Hardware Innovation Award!'"

Accelerating production AI applications for data centers and the cloud by 10x over comparable AI storage solutions at a fraction of the power, the AI400X2 Turbo delivers more AI training time to GPU clusters, enhancing data center profitability and ROI by 30%. The increase in hardware performance in the AI400X2 Turbo is complemented by DDN's software optimizations that streamline data movement through all parts of the AI infrastructure stack from the storage, through the network, to the GPUs, and directly into applications. These significant efficiency gains contribute to both lower costs and better predictive capabilities. 

"Data storage is a vital aspect in driving AI infrastructure and software libraries, businesses require the highest quality in their technology investments to increase efficiency and performance in their workloads," shared Jyothi Swaroop, chief marketing officer, DDN.
