Equinix a global digital infrastructure company, has announced the launch of a fully managed private cloud service. This innovative offering allows enterprises to seamlessly acquire and manage Nvidia DGX AI supercomputing infrastructure, essential for the development and execution of custom generative AI models.
The service, available immediately, encompasses Nvidia DGX systems, Nvidia networking, and the Nvidia Ai Enterprise software platform. Equinix will be responsible for installing and operating each customer’s privately owned Nvidia infrastructure. Additionally, services can be deployed on behalf of customers in key International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers worldwide.
Charles Meyers, president and CEO of Equinix, emphasized the significance of the service, “To harness the incredible potential of generative AI, enterprises need adaptable, scalable hybrid infrastructure in their local markets to bring AI supercomputing to their data. Our new service provides customers a fast and cost-effective way to adopt advanced AI infrastructure that’s operated and managed by experts globally.”
Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of Nvidia, said, “Generative AI is transforming every industry. Now, enterprises can own Nvidia Ai supercomputing and software, paired with the operational efficiency of Equinix management, in hundreds of data centers worldwide.”
Scalable Service to Fuel Innovation Across Industries
The service enables enterprises to scale their infrastructure operations to meet the demands of developing and running large-scale Ai models. Early access companies from diverse sectors such as biopharma, financial services, software, automotive, and retail are already utilizing the service. These companies are establishing Ai Centers of Excellence to lay a strategic foundation for a wide array of developing Large Language Model (LLM) use cases. Examples include speeding up the development of new medications, enhancing customer service with AI copilots, and creating virtual productivity assistants.
Easy Access to Privately Managed Nvidia AI Supercomputing
Equinix’s service allows customers to operate their AI infrastructure in proximity to their data, offering high-speed private network access to global network service providers. This facilitates quick generative Ai information retrieval across corporate networks. Additionally, it provides private, high-bandwidth interconnections to cloud services and enterprise service providers, aiding Ai workloads while adhering to data security and compliance requirements.
Customers using this service gain access to Nvidia Ai Enterprise software, streamlining the development and deployment of production-grade Ai applications, including generative Ai. Nvidia Ai Enterprise offers pre-trained models, optimized frameworks, and accelerated data science software libraries. These include the Nvidia NeMo framework for building LLMs, Nvidia RAPIDS for data science, Nvidia Clara for healthcare, and Nvidia TensorRT-LLM for optimizing the performance of large language models.
The solution features comprehensive enterprise-grade support and security. This includes assistance from Equinix’s IBX data center professionals in rapidly building and deploying custom Ai models, as well as access to Nvidia Ai experts.
This fully managed private cloud service is available starting today. Interested parties can learn more by visiting the Equinix website or by contacting Nvidia representatives or systems integrators.
