The positive and transformative effects of the Sycomp and IBM partnership reverberate across industries. The company assisted an AI-powered solution provider, empowering healthcare teams with efficient ways of extracting clinical insights using real-time intelligence for more informed decision-making. As the company began to digitally transform its services, it chose to transfer its data from the on-premises HPC environment to the Azure cloud.

However, this data migration required transferring large-scale AI workloads that required a scalable AI-supportive storage platform, seamlessly integrating with Azure Blob Storage to reduce storage costs and the bandwidth to support multiple concurrent users. Thus, the customer sought storage solutions catering to these requirements while delivering quick deployment and maintaining stakeholder relationships and customer SLAs.

Sycomp provided the healthcare solutions provider with an industry-leading scalable solution that securely managed large volumes of data compatible with HPC, AI, ML, and big data. Sycomp’s platform gave the client data access using NFS and the native client, a global namespace from on-premises to cloud, accelerated HPC, AI, and ML workloads due to real-time data processing, and burst to cloud for time-sensitive operations.

Furthermore, Sycomp Storage maintained the system performance upon successful migration while catapulting the company towards higher agility by unlocking cloud features. Moreover, Sycomp Storage’s automated deployment and configuration allowed the IT team to perform daily tasks uninterruptedly and provided the teams with technical support for regular version upgrades, configuration guidance, and storage management.
