Red Hat has announced new certifications and capabilities for Red Hat OpenShift aimed at accelerating the delivery of intelligent applications across the hybrid cloud. These enhancements, including the certification of Red Hat OpenShift with NVIDIA AI Enterprise 2.0, as well as the general availability of Red Hat OpenShift 4.10, are intended to help organizations deploy, manage and scale artificial intelligence (AI) workloads with confidence.
While AI is transforming how enterprises do business, operationalizing an AI infrastructure can be complex and time- and resource-intensive. To help accelerate the process, Red Hat OpenShift is now certified and supported with the NVIDIA AI Enterprise 2.0 software suite, an end-to-end, cloud-native suite of AI and data analytics software that runs on mainstream, NVIDIA-Certified Systems.
The integrated platform delivers the NVIDIA AI Enterprise suite, optimized for Red Hat OpenShift. With NVIDIA AI Enterprise on Red Hat OpenShift, data scientists and developers can more quickly train models, build them into applications and deploy at scale.
Customers now have the option to deploy Red Hat OpenShift on NVIDIA-Certified Systems with NVIDIA Enterprise AI software as well as on previously supported NVIDIA DGX A100 systems, a universal high performance compute system for AI workloads. This allows organizations to consolidate and accelerate the MLOps lifecycle, including data engineering, analytics, training, software development and inference, into a unified, easier-to-deploy AI infrastructure. Additionally, Red Hat OpenShift’s integrated DevOps and GitOps capabilities enable MLOps to speed up continuous delivery of AI-powered applications.
This complements the planned support for NVIDIA GPUs available with Red Hat OpenShift Data Science, announced previously.
Red Hat OpenShift 4.10 adds support for additional public clouds and hardware architectures, providing organizations the flexibility to choose where to run their applications by making development as easy and as consistent as possible. New features and capabilities designed to accelerate AI/ML workloads include Installer provisioned infrastructure (IPI) support, running Red Hat OpenShift on Arm processors and Red Hat OpenShift availability on NVIDIA LaunchPad.
NVIDIA Enterprise AI 2.0 on Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat OpenShift 4.10 are now generally available.
