NVIDIA Teams With Microsoft to Build Massive Cloud AI

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 16 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) NVIDIA today announced a multi-year collaboration with Microsoft to build one of the world’s most powerful AI supercomputers, a supercomputing infrastructure with NVIDIA developed by Microsoft. GPUs, networking and a full stack of AI software to support efforts to install, deploy and scale AI in large, state-of-the-art models.

Cloud-based AI supercomputing includes powerful and scalable ND- and NC-series virtual machines optimized for AI training and distributed inference. It is the first public cloud to incorporate NVIDIA’s advanced AI stack, tens of thousands NVIDIA A100 and H100 GPUs NVIDIA Quantum-2 400Gb/s InfiniBand networking and the NVIDIA AI Enterprise software suite for its platform.

As part of the collaboration, NVIDIA will use Azure’s scalable virtual machine instances to research and further accelerate advances in generative AI, a rapidly emerging area of ​​AI in which basic models like Megatron Turing NLG 530B They are the basis of the observed, self-learning algorithms for new text, code, digital images, video or audio.

The companies will also collaborate to optimize Microsoft’s DeepSpeed You use deep learning. NVIDIA’s full stack of AI tools and software kits, optimized for Azure, will be available to Enterprise Azure customers.

“AI is accelerating technology development as well as industry adoption. Disruption of foundational models ignites a wave of research, fosters new initiatives and enables new application initiatives,” said Manuvir Das, president of enterprise computing at NVIDIA. “Our collaboration with Microsoft will provide researchers and companies with state-of-the-art AI infrastructure and software capital to tap into its transformative potential. AI.”

“AI is fueling the next wave of automation across enterprise and industrial computing as organizations navigate more or less economic uncertainty,” said Scott Guthrie, executive president of the Cloud + AI Group at Microsoft. “Our collaboration with NVIDIA unlocks the world’s most scalable supercomputing platform that delivers state-of-the-art AI capabilities for every enterprise on Microsoft Azure.”

Scalable Peak Performance With NVIDIA Compute and Quantum-2 InfiniBand on Azure
Microsoft Azure AI-optimized virtual machine instances are architected with NVIDIA’s leading GPUs in the data center and are the first public cloud instances to incorporate NVIDIA Quantum-2 400Gb/s InfiniBand networking. Clients can deploy thousands of GPUs in a single cluster to run even the most massive language models, build highly complex recommender systems at scale, and implement generative AI at scale.

Current Azure instances feature NVIDIA Quantum 200Gb/s InfiniBand networking with NVIDIA A100 GPUs. They will be integrated with NVIDIA Quantum-2 400Gb/s InfiniBand networking and NVIDIA H100 GPUs. With advanced Azure cloud computing infrastructure, networking and storage, these AI-optimized offerings will provide scalable peak performance for AI training and deep learning implementation for workloads of any size.

Accelerate AI Development and Deployment
In addition, the platform will support a wide range of AI applications and services, including Microsoft DeepSpeed ​​and the NVIDIA AI Enterprise software suite.

Microsoft will leverage DeepSpeed NVIDIA H100 Transformer Engine to accelerate the transformer-based models used to model large languages, generative AI and writing computer code, among other applications. This technology applies the 8-bit floating-point precision capabilities of DeepSpeed ​​to dramatically accelerate AI-transforming systems – up to twice the throughput of 16-bit operations.

The NVIDIA AI Initiative — the globally adopted NVIDIA AI software platform — is certified and supported on Microsoft Azure instances with NVIDIA A100 GPUs. Support for blue instances with NVIDIA H100 GPUs will be added in a future software release.
