Autonomous vehicles depend on advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). Behind the vehicle's ADAS is a control unit that must capture and process millions of kilometers of driving data. Typically, this data is ingested in massive quantities by a scale-out network attached storage (NAS) platform for analysis and simulation-building. As a result, the success of these AI-powered autonomous vehicle testing programs is directly correlated to the number of simulations that can be processed ...
