The future of enterprise AI is here, and it’s powered by the NetApp® AIPod™ with Lenovo for NVIDIA OVX solution. This solution converges Lenovo’s innovative capabilities, NVIDIA’s advanced AI architecture, and NetApp’s robust storage systems into one seamless offering. The NetApp AIPod with Lenovo technology is optimized for generative AI, designed for supporting retrieval-augmented generation (RAG). Not only does it support RAG, but it also accelerates the deployment and management of AI applications within enterprise environments.  

As we unveil our new AIPod with Lenovo for NVIDIA OVX solution, join us in exploring how RAG technology can reshape the landscape of enterprise AI, and learn how the architecture simplifies GenAI implementation. 

RAG technology and its business impact

As generative AI adds a staggering $4 trillion to the global economy, RAG technology has emerged as the linchpin for organizations aiming to capitalize on this growth. Providing secure and intelligent synthesis of enterprise data with powerful large language models (LLMs), RAG can: 

  • Diminish instances of AI “hallucination,” enhancing the reliability of generated content 
  • Protect proprietary data within the secure confines of an organization’s LLM 
  • Generate contextually accurate and precise results, tailored to the nuances of business needs 

NetApp and Lenovo’s RAG in a box: A turnkey solution

Deploying a strong RAG infrastructure is a roadblock for many enterprises. Data might be plentiful, but it’s often siloed, bottlenecked, or under threat. The AIPod with Lenovo solution—powered by NVIDIA-certified OVX servers from Lenovo, NVIDIA AI Enterprise software, and NetApp’s high-performance storage systems—is the secret to unlocking RAG’s potential. This AIPod architecture is secure, scalable, and efficient, making it suitable for a range of industries.

  • Data management simplicity. The NetApp AIPod with Lenovo solution addresses the complexities of data management by providing tools and features that simplify infrastructure management, enhance automation, allow scalability, and provide data protection.
  • High-performing data. Combining the raw power of ​​NVIDIA OVX​-​certified Lenovo ThinkSystem servers with ​​​​​​​​NVIDIA’s advanced L40S GPUs, and NVIDIA ​​Spectrum-X networking, the AIPod with Lenovo solution delivers the computational strength required for the most intensive AI tasks, supported by the unparalleled speed and efficiency of NetApp storage systems. 
  • NVIDIA integrations. The solution integrates NVIDIA AI Enterprise to streamline the deployment and scaling of AI workloads. And NVIDIA NeMo allows organizations to customize, build, and deploy AI models with ease, leveraging pretrained models for quicker deployment and TensorRT optimization for enhanced performance. 
  • Trusted secure data. Security is not an afterthought but a foundational element of the AIPod with Lenovo solution. Data is not only rapid and accessible but also rigorously protected.

How to use our technology

Here’s an example. Suppose a patient arrives at a hospital with a complex medical condition. Traditionally, healthcare providers would need to sift through extensive medical records, which can be time consuming and delay critical decision-making. However, using a chatbot interface powered by ​​NetApp AIPod with Lenovo for NVIDIA OVX, a doctor can quickly query the patient’s medical history simply by asking questions in natural language. The RAG technology retrieves relevant information from the extensive database of medical records, including past diagnoses, treatment plans, allergies, and medication history. It presents this information in a concise, easily digestible format. By taking advantage of the NetApp AIPod with Lenovo ​for ​NVIDIA OVX solution, enterprises from any industry ​can ​obtain fast, accurate, comprehensive, and secure results from their generative AI tools. 

The NetApp AIPod with Lenovo for NVIDIA OVX solution stands as an example of how advanced AI technology can be applied to real-world challenges, enhancing the capabilities of healthcare providers and improving the experiences of patients. 

The solution marks a significant milestone in the journey toward accessible, efficient, and secure enterprise AI. By harnessing the power of RAG technology, organizations can unlock the full potential of generative AI, driving innovation and competitive advantage. The NetApp AIPod with Lenovo solution demonstrates the power of collaboration and innovation, bridging the gap between potential and reality in the realm of enterprise AI.
