Public cloud provider Oracle have partnered with NVIDIA to accelerate analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence-based workloads for enterprises. As per the terms of the deal, NVIDIA will integrate their HGX-2 platform in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to reduce data bottlenecks encountered with high-performance computing and deep-learning workloads.
According to Oracle, enterprises that deploy machine learning and artificial intelligence need platforms that can accelerate business workloads. They say that these enterprises focus on data science and analytics as a major source for drawing business intelligence.
By collaborating with NVIDIA, Oracle claim that they will be addressing a growing demand for cloud-based GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) acceleration in data analytics and deep-machine learning. They say that NVIDIA’s HGX-2 platform will provide multi-precision computing prowess with Cloud Infrastructure integration to ramp up application production.
Speaking about the alliance, Clay Magouyrk, Senior Vice President, Software Development, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, commented:
We are very excited about this collaboration with NVIDIA. As the world of computing continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible, we are providing our customers with the software, tools and cloud infrastructure needed to solve the most complex challenges.
Whether you are an engineer, data scientist, researcher or developer, we are bringing the power of compute and cloud to your fingertips.
In addition to this, Oracle announced that they will also be working with NVIDIA to introduce RAPIDS, an open-source software on their Cloud Infrastructure to speed up end-to-end data science workflows.
This new collaboration with Oracle will help fuel incredible innovation across a wide range of industries. By taking advantage of NVIDIA’s latest technologies, Oracle is well positioned to meet surges in demand for GPU acceleration for deep learning, high-performance computing, data analytics and machine learning.
Industry patrons claim that this alliance will boost Oracle’s position as a provider of integrated cloud services including AI, especially after their Datascience.com acquisition in May this year. It will be interesting to see how the public cloud provider makes the most out of this deal with NVIDIA.
