BENGALURU: NYSE-listed Quantum Corp. has announced aiWARE for Xcellis, an on-premise and cloud version of the artificial intelligence (AI) platform from Veritone.
Bringing Veritone’s multi-engine AI capabilities into a Quantum StorNext-managed environment, aiWARE for Xcellis enables users to leverage the power of Veritone’s cognitive services and applications — beginning with optical character recognition (OCR), object detection and speech-to-text transcription as the first network-isolated engines — to extract new value from their on-premise video and audio content.
Situating powerful AI processing behind corporate firewalls, the integrated solution is ideal for companies with significant investments in on-premise storage and/or latency, cost or security concerns about cloud storage.
Cognitive engines can deliver greater value when they have more data to analyze. The combination of Quantum’s StorNext-powered Xcellis with Veritone aiWARE enables users to apply AI to on-premise content that previously could not be leveraged for this purpose and to add new content for analysis as that content is captured. The integrated solution also provides the option to leverage Veritone’s continuously evolving array of best-of-breed cognitive engines in the cloud, either exclusively or in concert with on-premise engines, when desired or appropriate.
aiWARE for Xcellis is available now from Quantum and its reseller partners, with three initial deployment options: “Embedded” for containerized deployment on an existing Xcellis workflow storage system, “Standard” delivered on an Xcellis Application Director for more processing performance, and “High Performance” based on an enhanced Xcellis Application Director with additional processing cores and expanded memory. The integrated solution can easily scale with additional appliances as the environment grows.
