Using high-performance storage for machine learning workloads on Kubernetes

Organizations are modernizing their applications by adopting containers and microservices-based architectures. Many customers are deploying high-performance workloads on containers to power microservices architecture, and require access to low latency and high throughput shared storage from these containers. Because containers are transient in nature, these long-running applications require data to be stored in durable storage. Amazon FSx […]

Persistent storage for high-performance workloads using Amazon FSx for Lustre

High-performance file systems are often divided into two types: scratch and persistent. Scratch file systems provide temporary storage with high-performance characteristics such as submillisecond latency, up to hundreds of gigabytes per second of throughput, and millions of IOPS for short-term workloads. By contrast, persistent file systems are designed to combine the performance levels of their […]
