KNAP presents NAS TS-2888Ks ready for artificial intelligence


KNAP introduces the new NAS TS-2888Ks, an all-in-one solution for AI (Artificial Intelligence), combining robust storage and ready-to-use software environment for streamlining AI flows with high economic returns. Built on the next generation of Intel Kseon V processors with up to 18 cores and hybrid storage with eight solid hard drives and 20 high-performance SSDs (including 4 U.2), the TS-2888Ks also supports the installation of four high-end video cards and launches AI development package from KNAP.

The TS-2888Ks integrates everything that is needed for artificial intelligence machines, helping organizations quickly and easily implement AI applications.

"Compared to a typical AI workstation, the TS-2888Ks combine high-capacity computing power to greatly reduce latency for fast data transfer and eliminating network stumps," says David TSAO, KNAP product manager. "Integrating hardware and software focused on AI reduces the time and complexity of applying and managing AI tasks, making the TS-2888Ks the ideal solution for most organizations," he adds.

TS-2888Ks is made around AI optimization. Featuring an Intel Core i3 processor with up to 18 cores, 36 threads and frequencies up to 4.5 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost technology, TS-2888Ks also supports up to 512 GB of DDR4 ECC RDIMM RAM to provide fast loading of workflows and processing speeds.

TS-2888Ks supports the main video accelerators of NVIDIA, AMD and Intel, with eight PCIe slots and 2000V 80Plus Platinum, which allows to build up to four premium video cards for exceptional computing power. To meet scalability and performance requirements at the same time, TS-2888Ks uses hybrid storage architecture, supporting eight 3.5-inch SATA 6Gb / s hard drives, 16-inch SATA 6Gb / s SSDs and four SSD NVMe U.2 PCIe Gen3 k4 with high-speed I / O for enabling SSD cache or self-leveling benefits for applications that require performance.

TS-2888Ks introduces a comprehensive software environment to facilitate the installation and maintenance of AI applications.

With the exclusive KuAI-AI development kit for rapid construction, training and optimization of AI models working at KNAP's NAS-container station, it launches a number of open source tools and architectures (including Caffe, TensorFlov, AlekNet, FaceNet and many others) for user AIs work flows.

The TS-2888Ks also contains flexible copy and image protection tools to ensure data security to allow effective recovery in case of unpleasant events. As an all-in-one AI solution, the TS-2888Ks significantly simplify the application of AI, while offering an economically viable solution.
