Currently, SambaNova Systems is focused on its DataScale system. This integrated software and hardware system delivers a comprehensive AI platform that will enable organizations to reimagine their approach to AI. SambaNova believes that it is an opportunity to sell its software-based AI systems to enterprises. The company’s Reconfigurable Dataflow Unit (RDU) is built to execute a broad AI application, and its eight Cardinal chips are packaged with 12 terabytes of DDR4 memory.
The company also recently launched Dataflow-as-a-Service. This solution enables enterprises to tap into SambaNova’s AI system without having to maintain it themselves. The system, which includes SambaFlow, the complete software stack for DataScale, allows organizations to easily train custom workloads and analyze foundation models. In addition to enabling out-of-the-box performance, SambaFlow demonstrates the capabilities of the SambaNova dataflow architecture.
The new AI system from SambaNova is a big improvement over the company’s previous offerings. Its new chip boasts three times the speed of the company’s previous offering, allowing it to compete with some of the best in the business. Its high-speed fabric also enables it to optimize its stack for the specific demands of AI.
SambaNova isn’t the only company to offer a system that’s worthy of the name. The largest competitor to SambaNova’s offering is Nvidia Corp., which dominates the AI market. With the upcoming release of its new system, SambaNova hopes to capitalize on the momentum it has established in the enterprise space. SambaNova’s hardware is available for a monthly subscription. In addition to securing a place in the competitive arena, the company believes that its AI solutions can help organizations make their AI cores more accessible to their employees.
The company has also announced the unveiling of its Reconfigurable Dataflow Architecture, which is a spatially reconfigurable architecture that is a blueprint for its DataScale solution. Combined with SambaNova’s deep learning expertise, the DataScale solution is a powerful combination that will allow organizations to reimagine their approach to machine learning and AI. The company’s other product, the Cardinal SN10, is an AI-friendly, reconfigurable dataflow unit that facilitates continuous learning at the edge.
