“Enterprise customers need AI solutions to drive business transformation, but they may not have the facilities and platform designed to accelerate data science innovation,” said Tony Paikeday, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Artificial Intelligence Systems, NVIDIA.
“The collaboration between Digital Realty, Core Scientific, and NVIDIA offers customers a simplified, cost-effective AI platform that streamlines access to NVIDIA DGX POD infrastructure with data science workflow tools in world-class environments optimized for enterprise AI development.”
The new AI-ready infrastructure solution is deployed on Digital Realty’s data center platform PlatformDIGITAL in collaboration with Core Scientific to enable customers deploy AI models in close proximity to their data sets. The Data Hub features the NVIDIA DGX A100 system in combination with Core Scientific’s Plexus™ for orchestrating data science workflow.
“AI is poised to have a dramatic impact on the way businesses drive their digital transformation initiatives, but it’s critical to have a foundation in place to remove the data gravity barriers that inhibit innovation,” said Chris Sharp, Chief Technology Officer of Digital Realty.
“PlatformDIGITAL provides an ideal location for the data aggregation, staging, analytics and management that are critical for optimizing data exchange and maintaining data compliance. Our collaboration with NVIDIA is at the forefront of driving the adoption of enterprise AI worldwide. With the addition of Core Scientific’s intelligent orchestration toolset, we are making it easier for enterprises to rapidly deploy AI workloads.”
As announced, Digital Realty is the first global data center provider to join the NVIDIA DGX-Ready Data Center Program, and provides a fully NVIDIA-certified environment to run AI workloads. Digital Realty also looks forward to working closely with NVIDIA sellers and the extended NVIDIA Partner Network (NPN) to facilitate training.
