Meet the Data Platform for the AI Era at GITEX

Meet the Data Platform for the AI Era at GITEX

VAST Data is ready to return to GITEX, one of the premiere global tech events for AI. Two months after unleashing our vision for the new era of data infrastructure with the VAST Data Platform, we’re excited to show why we believe that only VAST can match the ambition of AI-era companies in the Middle East and help them innovate faster and smarter to deliver world-changing ideas.

The VAST agenda at GITEX is PACKED. The VAST booth (Stand No - H4-A40, Hall No - Hall 4) will be a busy spot on the show floor all week and will be an ideal place for attendees to learn about VAST’s new approach to data-intensive computing.

We will have dozens of VASTronauts on hand to meet with attendees—customers, prospects, partners and ecosystem enablers--and take you through several platform demos, including the VAST Catalog, which allows business and domain experts to quickly discover and access data using standard search terms. Demo presentations also will examine:

  • deep learning acceleration with GPU Direct

  • bringing structure to unstructured data

  • data management at exabyte scale

  • much, much more

Additionally, attendees will hear from VAST customers at several speaking sessions, including Beyond One, a digital services provider that acquired Virgin Mobile MEA in February, Core42 (formerly known as G42 Cloud), and others, all of whom will explain how the VAST Data Platform is allowing them to capture the true promise of data and AI.


Core42 is one of several emerging specialty cloud providers focused on AI. These clouds are standardizing on VAST thanks to the VAST Data Platform’s simplicity, scalability, resilience, and overall cost of ownership benefits. With an architecture that’s built for modern workloads, the VAST Data Platform provides AI clouds like Core42 the scalability in both performance and size needed for exascale AI/HPC, as well as a global namespace with multi-tenancy features essential for zero-trust cloud environments. See more about our momentum in this space with CoreWeave and others soon to be named.

Enterprises too are increasingly turning their focus to AI applications. AI-focused organizations traditionally have had to stitch together technologies from disparate public or private cloud offerings, or rely on traditional data platforms not built to meet the needs of new deep learning applications. With VAST they have a data platform that simplifies the data management and processing experience into one unified stack, with parallel file access, GPU-optimized performance, and a global namespace spanning hybrid multi-cloud and edge environments.

The era of AI-driven discovery will accelerate humanity’s quest to solve its biggest challenges. AI can help industries find treatments for disease and cancers, forge new paths to tackle climate change, pioneer revolutionary approaches to agriculture, and uncover new fields of science and mathematics that the world has not yet even considered.

By building a global computing and storage platform that gives AI applications the tools needed to derive greater insights, VAST is helping customers around the world build potentially world-changing products and ideas.

We can’t wait to show you in person at GITEX how we’ve built a platform that puts data at the center of how systems think, react, and discover, making it possible for organizations to solve their most pressing data challenges.

Feel free to book a meeting with us. See you there!
