The AI orchestration platform was named a 2021 Cool Vendor in Enterprise AI Operationalization and Engineering

Run:AI, creator of a cloud-native compute management platform for the AI era, announced today that it has been named a Cool Vendor in Enterprise AI Operationalization and Engineering by leading research and advisory company Gartner.

The research by Gartner notes that “Platforms architected to enable multiple users, teams and AI applications to share infrastructure (on-premises or cloud) are important enablers of training and deployment of models,” and also notes that, “by 2025, AI will be the top category driving infrastructure decisions, due to the maturation of the AI market, resulting in a tenfold growth in compute requirements.”

Run:AI’s AI orchestration and acceleration platform puts AI infrastructure into a pool, enabling across a whole organization and ensuring each data science team gets the resources they need. With fractional GPU allocation, smart quota management, guaranteed quotas for priority jobs and powerful scheduling, Run:AI keeps GPU utilization high and prevents the waste of expensive hardware resources sitting idle. IT teams get full visibility into how AI hardware is being used and Data Science teams get access to as much compute power as they need.

“In the race to develop better and more accurate machine learning models, experimentation is key,” said Run:AI co-founder and CEO Omri Geller. “More experiments mean more iterations, more refinements and better predictive performance. Hardware is a crucial part of that picture, but with exponential growth of model sizes, and specific functionality needed for inference and edge AI workloads, companies need to get the most out of their hardware. When GPUs are idle, that’s lost productivity, which ultimately stymies innovation.”

“Especially now, as organizations move beyond one data science team to multiple departments all doing machine learning, managing, orchestrating and optimizing resources across a single team isn’t enough; you need a holistic approach. We’re proud that Gartner positions Run:AI as a Cool Vendor in Enterprise AI Operationalization and Engineering, meeting this growing need.”

VP Marketing

Marketers get a bad rap today, with many people assuming we're paid to trick people into buying things they don't need. :) I believe in marketing of a different sort; the creative expression of a brand, the humanizing of a corporate entity, and the important task of helping consumers find products that will make their lives easier. My experience, 20+ years in mostly B2B marketing, has involved all of those and then some. I have worked mostly in the software industry, and primarily at startups - with a short stint in venture capital along the way that taught me about the financial side of company building. I occasionally blog on my new favorite marketing topic, account based marketing, at https://medium.com/@FaraJHain
