Google Cloud has announced that it is enhancing its cloud storage options to help customers meet the data-intensive demands of artificial intelligence workloads.
Cloud Storage FUSE, Parallelstore, and Google Cloud NetApp Volumes are the three new storage options that were just revealed. All of them are accessible through the Google Cloud Console, giving businesses access to what Google claims are more powerful and affordable data storage solutions for their AI applications.
For the most demanding AI and high-performance computing applications that depend on graphics processing units, Google describes Parallelstore as a parallel file system.
Parallelstore, which is currently in private preview, was created to assist users in stopping the unnecessary squandering of GPU resources while they wait for their storage to catch up.
