I recently had the opportunity to speak with Renen Hallak, Founder and CEO of VAST Data, about their new unified data platform for AI. VAST made waves in 2019 with the release of their VAST DataStore, a highly performant and scalable all-flash storage system. However, as I learned from Renen, storage was only the opening act in VAST’s grander vision to become an AI data platform.

With the hype and investment around AI reaching astronomical levels, the demands on infrastructure are greater than ever. VAST aims to eliminate common compromises around performance, scale, geography, and ease of use to unlock AI’s potential. On August 1st, VAST unveiled its expanded data platform, comprising a new database and compute capabilities alongside its flagship VAST DataStore.
