Core Scientific www.corescientific.com today announced it is partnering with Pure Storage to build a hosted AI Ready Infrastructure (AIRI) to power the Cloud for Data Scientists. Built on AIRI, the market-leading AI-at-scale solution that combines NVIDIA DGX Systems for GPU compute and Pure Storage FlashBlade, Core Scientific now provides AI infrastructure-as-a-service for large scale deep learning and data analytics work. Data Scientists can now develop and train models significantly faster, and utilize much larger data sets.
Core Scientific is a leader in Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain technologies, delivering best-in-class infrastructure and software solutions. In an increasingly distributed and connected world, Core Scientific believes AI and blockchain will fundamentally change the way information is processed, shared and stored across a range of industries.
Core Scientific’s CEO, Kevin Turner said, “Our goal with the AIRI-Ready Data Center is to be best in class for AI hosting and infrastructure. We are creating a Cloud for Data Scientists that enables them to quickly deploy the most advanced computing solutions for deep learning, data analytics, and artificial intelligence.”
AIRI (http://purestorage.com/airi) simplifies the complexities of AI infrastructure with an integrated solution for enterprises large and small. AI demands are beyond the capability of legacy serial CPUs and spinning disks. AIRI delivers linear, scale-out performance to simplify AI-at-scale deployment so that Data Scientists can focus on algorithms and business leaders can focus on customer outcomes, not infrastructure.
“AIRI is a complete infrastructure, tuned from software to hardware to keep the GPUs busy for workloads at any scale,” said Amy Fowler, VP of Strategy & Solutions for FlashBlade, Pure Storage. “As computational demands grow, additional DGX servers can be provisioned in the high-performance fabric. Similarly, as storage capacity or performance demands grow, additional blades can be added to the FlashBlade systems allowing for instant access to all available datasets with zero downtime.”

TONIK Selects Finastra’s Core Banking Solution to Power Southeast Asia’s First Pure-play Licensed Digital Bank
Finastra announced today that TONIK, the first licensed digital-only bank in Southeast Asia, has selected Fusion Essence in the cloud to power its end-to-end core banking capabilities. The move will support TONIK as it launches its retail deposit and customer loans services in the Philippines, giving it agility and the ability to scale quickly.
Greg Krasnov, Founder & CEO at TONIK, said, “The banking sector in the Philippines is ripe for digital disruption. The country has high internet usage, the majority of Filipinos are unbanked and research shows half of the people who do have bank accounts would be interested in switching to a neobank.
“We want to create a hyper-compelling consumer proposition that will revolutionize the way money works in the region. Finastra’s Fusion Essence Cloud – powered by Microsoft Azure – will give us the agility to get these services to market quickly and efficiently. We are also impressed by the modern, open and scalable capabilities of the solution, particularly the in-built analytics, which will help us to better understand our customers’ smart digital banking needs.”
The key proposition for digital banks is providing a customer experience that traditional banks struggle to offer. This requires modern, cloud-native technology that facilitates innovation whilst future-proofing investment. For TONIK, Fusion Essence Cloud will be deployed out of the Microsoft Azure Southeast Asia Region (Singapore Data Center), which will allow for both low latency and data residency. TONIK will benefit from a low cost of entry into the market, ease and speed of deployment, and the ability to increase business volumes and diversify its product set cost-effectively. It will also benefit from ongoing software updates and, in time, access to further innovation via FusionFabric.cloud, Finastra’s platform for open innovation and the development of applications.
European neobanks, including revverbank and Gravity, are already being powered by Fusion Essence Cloud, and this deployment in Southeast Asia will help bring the benefits of innovative digital banking to the Philippines.
Anand Subbaraman, General Manager, Retail Banking at Finastra, said, “TONIK is well positioned to replicate the disruption that has taken place in Europe, where digital banks have quickly attracted millions of customers and billions of dollars in investor funding. Using digital technologies and a lower-cost operating model, TONIK will be able to offer customers the products and services they need, delivered in a convenient way, as well as increasing opportunities for financial inclusion in Asia. Fusion Essence Cloud is ideally suited to help TONIK achieve these goals, as well as see a fast return on its investment. We are extremely proud to be TONIK’s partner in bringing digital banking to the Philippines for the first time.”
