NVIDIA And VMWare Announce Hybrid Cloud Partnership For AI Software And Hardware Infrastructure
VMWare CEO Pat Gelsinger states that VMWare is “partnering with NVIDIA to bring AI to every enterprise.” The available AI software NVIDIA offers through the NVIDIA GPU Cloud (NGC) hub will be brought into VMware vSphere, VMware Cloud Foundation, and VMware Tanzu. This integration will make AI adoption, use, and deployment much easier for customers in any industry. All the things one needs to work with AI and machine learning at an enterprise level will be accelerated on NVIDIA GPU infrastructure for flexible, scalable resources that are instantly deployable.
These developments are in perfect alignment with NVIDIA's vigorous efforts in AI and machine, which was recently underscored in statements made during the announcement of the company's acquisition of Arm. “NVIDIA and VMware will help customers transform every enterprise data center into an accelerated AI supercomputer,” notes NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang. The new NVIDIA and VMWare partnership should provide significant value at the enterprise level with VMWare's widespread virtualization footprint. This is only the beginning of the discussion though, so stay tuned to HotHardware and wait for GTC2020 on October 5th for more news from NVIDIA and VMWare.
