Microsoft and Nvidia team-up to build massive cloud AI computer

Microsoft and Nvidia team up to create one of the most powerful AI supercomputers in the world, powered by Microsoft's Azure cloud tech and Nvidia GPUs. 

Tech giants Nvidia and Microsoft have today announced a multi-year collaboration to build one of the most powerful AI supercomputers in the world. 

The supercomputer will be powered by Microsoft's cloud infrastructure Azure and Nvidia GPUs, networking and a full stack of AI software to help enterprises train, deploy and scale AI, including large, state-of-the-art models.

Nvidia will also utilize Azure’s scalable virtual machine instances to research and further accelerate advances in generative AI, a rapidly emerging area of AI in which foundational models like Megatron Turing NLG 530B are the basis for unsupervised, self-learning algorithms to create new text, code, digital images, video or audio.

The companies will also collaborate to optimize Microsoft’s DeepSpeed deep learning optimization software. NVIDIA’s full stack of AI workflows and software development kits, optimized for Azure, will be made available to Azure enterprise customers.

“AI technology advances as well as industry adoption are accelerating. The breakthrough of foundation models has triggered a tidal wave of research, fostered new startups and enabled new enterprise applications,” said Manuvir Das, vice president of enterprise computing at NVIDIA. “Our collaboration with Microsoft will provide researchers and companies with state-of-the-art AI infrastructure and software to capitalize on the transformative power of AI.”
