Announced at VMware Explore 2023 and expected to be launched in early 2024, VMware Private AI Foundation with NVIDIA will enable enterprises to customise models and run generative AI applications, including intelligent chatbots, assistants, search and summarisation. The platform will be a fully integrated solution featuring generative AI software and accelerated computing from NVIDIA, built on VMware Cloud Foundation and optimised for AI.
“Generative AI and multi-cloud are the perfect match,” said Raghu Raghuram, CEO of VMware. “Customer data is everywhere — in their data centres, at the edge, and in their clouds. Together with NVIDIA, we’ll empower enterprises to run their generative AI workloads adjacent to their data with confidence while addressing their corporate data privacy, security and control concerns.”
“Enterprises everywhere are racing to integrate generative AI into their businesses,” said Jensen Huang, Founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “Our expanded collaboration with VMware will offer hundreds of thousands of customers — across financial services, healthcare, manufacturing and more — the full-stack software and computing they need to unlock the potential of generative AI using custom applications built with their own data.”
Full-Stack computing to supercharge generative AI
To achieve business benefits faster, enterprises are seeking to streamline development, testing and deployment of generative AI applications. McKinsey estimates that generative AI could add up to US$4.4tn annually to the global economy.
VMware Private AI Foundation with NVIDIA will enable enterprises to harness this capability, customising large language models; producing more secure and private models for their internal usage; and offering generative AI as a service to their users; and, more securely running inference workloads at scale.
Broad ecosystem support for VMware Private AI Foundation with NVIDIA
VMware Private AI Foundation with NVIDIA will be supported by Dell Technologies, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Lenovo — which will be among the first to offer systems that supercharge enterprise LLM customization and inference workloads with NVIDIA L40S GPUs, NVIDIA BlueField®-3 DPUs and NVIDIA ConnectX®-7 SmartNICs.
VMware Private AI Foundation with NVIDIA builds on the companies’ decade-long partnership. Their co-engineering work optimised VMware’s cloud infrastructure to run NVIDIA AI Enterprise with performance comparable to bare metal. Mutual customers further benefit from the resource and infrastructure management and flexibility enabled by VMware Cloud Foundation.
At VMware Explore, the company announced a range of AI-powered tools for its Anywhere Workspace platform, in a bid to help simplify and streamline hybrid work and boost employee experience.
The multicloud leader also announced the next evolution of VMware Cloud, empowering customers with new editions and capabilities that it says will help them modernise, optimise, and better protect their organisations.
