Utilizing AI Ep.17: Building a Hybrid Cloud Platform To Support AI Projects with Red Hat OpenShift

What makes AI applications special, and how does this change the infrastructure required to support these?

In this episode, we ask Red Hat about the platform requirements for AI applications in production. The demand for flexibility, scalability, and distribution seems to match a hybrid cloud’s capabilities, which is emerging as the preferred model for AI infrastructure.

Red Hat supports the container-centric hybrid cloud with OpenShift, and containers are also critical to AI workloads.

Red Hat has production customers in healthcare, manufacturing, and financial industries deploying ML workloads in production right now.
