Yesterday, NVIDIA announced a partnership with Microsoft on two new enterprise services. As part of this partnership, Microsoft Azure will host two new cloud offerings from NVIDIA: NVIDIA Omniverse Cloud, a platform-as-a-service offering a full-stack environment to design, develop, deploy and manage industrial metaverse applications; and NVIDIA DGX Cloud, an AI supercomputing service that gives enterprises immediate access to the infrastructure and software needed to train AI models for generative AI and other apps. Also, Microsoft 365 apps including Teams, OneDrive and SharePoint are now integrated with NVIDIA Omniverse, a platform for building and operating 3D industrial metaverse applications.
“The world’s largest companies are racing to digitalize every aspect of their business and reinvent themselves into software-defined technology companies,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “NVIDIA AI and Omniverse supercharge industrial digitalization. Building NVIDIA Omniverse Cloud within Microsoft Azure brings customers the best of our combined capabilities.”
“The next wave of computing is being born, between next-generation immersive experiences and advanced foundational AI models, we see the emergence of a new computing platform,” said Satya Nadella, chairman and CEO of Microsoft. “Together with NVIDIA, we’re focused on both building out services that bridge the digital and physical worlds to automate, simulate and predict every business process, and bringing the most powerful AI supercomputer to customers globally.”
- Omniverse Cloud, powered by NVIDIA OVX computing systems, will be available on Azure in the second half of the year.
- DGX Cloud on Azure will be available next quarter with NVIDIA DGX AI supercomputing and software, rented on a monthly basis.
