NVIDIA has teamed up with Microsoft to provide hundreds of millions of Microsoft enterprise users with access to powerful industrial metaverse and AI supercomputing resources via the cloud.
As part of the collaboration, Microsoft Azure will host two new cloud offerings from NVIDIA: NVIDIA Omniverse Cloud, a platform-as-a-service giving instant access to 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 advanced models for generative AI and other groundbreaking applications.
Additionally, the companies are bringing together their productivity and 3D collaboration platforms by connecting Microsoft 365 applications — such as Teams, OneDrive and SharePoint — with NVIDIA Omniverse, a platform for building and operating 3D industrial metaverse applications.
The collaboration will accelerate enterprises’ ability to digitalize their operations, engage in the industrial metaverse and train advanced models for generative AI and other applications.
With Omniverse connected to Azure Cloud Services Digital Twins and Internet of Things, companies can link real-time data from sensors in the physical world to their digital replicas. This will enable enterprises to build and operate more accurate, dynamic, fully functional 3D digital twins that automatically respond to changes in their physical environments. Azure provides the cloud infrastructure and capabilities needed to deploy enterprise services at scale, including security, identity and storage.
Omniverse Cloud, powered by NVIDIA OVX computing systems, will be available on Azure in the second half of the year.
DGX Cloud will be available running in Azure beginning next quarter, providing enterprises with dedicated clusters of NVIDIA DGX AI supercomputing and software, rented on a monthly basis.
