Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced the acquisition of Pachyderm in order to expand its AI business.
Pachyderm is a startup that delivers software to automate reproducible machine learning pipelines that target large-scale AI applications. Financial details were not disclosed at this point.
“Pachyderm’s reproducible AI software augments HPE’s existing AI-at-scale offerings to automate and accelerate AI and unlock greater opportunities in image, video, and text analysis, generative AI, and other emerging large-language-model needs to realize transformative outcomes,” Justin Hotard, executive vice president and general manager, HPC and AI, at HPE, said.
HPE in February 2022 made an investment in Pachyderm through its venture capital arm, Hewlett Packard Pathfinder, to speed time-to-market for AI innovation at lower data processing and operating costs. The transaction is not subject to any regulatory approvals and is expected to close this month.
Pachyderm’s software is available to integrate with HPE’s existing supercomputing and AI software solutions. Additionally, HPE plans to integrate Pachyderm with upcoming versions of the HPE Machine Learning Development System, which eliminates the complexity and cost to build and train models with a complete, ready-to-use solution.
