By Matt Kimball, Patrick Moorhead - May 29, 2023

VAST Data scores another big hit with the certification of its data platform as a certified data store for NVIDIA’s DGX SuperPOD. This marks the first NAS platform certified for the NVIDIA platform. While VAST positions this partnership as the democratization of AI, and it does in many ways, there’s more to this. Like its partnership with HPE, VAST is building a strong ecosystem that is going to broaden its reach. This company has made its brand on servicing the highest end of the market that relies on extreme performance. Keep an eye on them.
