Why cloud technology is important in the automotive industry
It’s predicted that there will be 90 million autonomous vehicles on the road by 2030 and that these vehicles will create 1 ZB of data (1 zettabyte = 1 trillion gigabytes). Sophisticated models built in the cloud need fast access to this data, especially when remodeling is required, such as in the event of an error or accident.
Dell EMC and Faction’s multi-cloud data strategy enables autonomous vehicle engineers to access best-of-breed tools from multiple clouds simultaneously and rapidly re-calculate and release models as needed.
Value for autonomous vehicle manufacturers
Accelerate pattern recognition with AI
Analyze huge datasets to train connected cars on how to adapt to changing road conditions and identify and avoid people or obstacles on the road. Learn from post-crash autonomous driving cloud data uploaded by cars in service to prevent recurring events.
Improve IoT processing
Use services like AWS IoT Core to securely support billions of connected devices and enable them to interact securely with cloud applications like AWS Lambda and Amazon Kinesis.
Scale data cost-effectively
Native cloud storage solutions can limit the growth of sensor data, images, and maps used and reported by each vehicle. Faction CCVs storage tiers balance performance requirements and cloud-adjacency while optimizing budget spend.
Innovate cloud-to-car updates
Public clouds like Microsoft Azure are working with manufacturers to provide over-the-air updates that deliver navigation intelligence (weather, traffic, infrastructure), in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), and voice assistance to improve market competitiveness.
How It Works
Faction’s 10+ network patents provide full flexibility for connecting remote sites and developers regardless of the networking configurations needed.
Faction’s bare-metal (or VMware) compute platforms can provide extremely high speed (10+Tb/s) access to data at ultra-low latency.
The Faction FIX fabric can then tie the central environment into multiple public clouds, allowing unparalleled flexibility to burst or access PaaS-level services (e.g. image recognition) that can be useful to enrich or test models.
Faction’s “zero egress” model makes it easy to move data off the centralized Faction platform to offsite archives, back to on-prem environments, and more, allowing full flexibility in the data lifecycle while containing costs.
