Previously only available as a trial, the released software suite delivers updates including production support for containerized AI on VMware vSphere with Tanzu. Accelerated AI workloads on vSphere, running in both Kubernetes containers and virtual machines with NVIDIA AI Enterprise, supports advanced AI development on mainstream IT infrastructure.

VMware vSphere with Tanzu support is expected to be added to the NVIDIA LaunchPad program for NVIDIA
AI Enterprise in the near future, allowing qualified enterprises the ability to test and prototype AI workloads at no charge through curated labs designed for the AI practitioner and IT admin. NVIDIA LaunchPad labs give enterprises the opportunity to develop and manage common AI workloads like chatbots and recommendation systems, using NVIDIA AI Enterprise and VMware vSphere, and soon with Tanzu.

NVIDIA AI Enterprise 1.1

While enterprises are eager to use containerized development for AI, these workloads are complex and require orchestration across many layers of the infrastructure. NVIDIA AI Enterprise 1.1 provides an environment to develop and test solutions for these challenges.

Validation for Domino Data Lab MLOps

The 1.1 release of NVIDIA AI Enterprise also provides validation for the Domino Data Lab Enterprise MLOps Platform with VMware vSphere with Tanzu. This integration enables cost-effective acceleration for research, model development, and model deployment on mainstream accelerated servers.

According to Thomas Robinson, VP of Strategic Partnerships at Domino Data Lab,

“This new phase of our collaboration with NVIDIA further enables enterprises to solve the world’s most
challenging problems by putting models at the heart of their businesses. Together, we are providing every company the end-to-end platform to rapidly and cost-effectively deploy models enterprise-wide.”

NVIDIA AI Enterprise release also expands the industry ecosystem with the first NVIDIA-Certified Systems from Cisco and Hitachi Vantara, as well as a number of newly qualified system integrators offering solutions for the software suite. Additional server manufacturers offering NVIDIA-Certified Systems for NVIDIA AI Enterprise include Atos, Dell Technologies, GIGABYTE, H3C, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Inspur, Lenovo, and Supermicro. Customers can also choose to deploy NVIDIA AI Enterprise on their own servers or on as-a-service bare-metal infrastructure from Equinix Metal across nine regions globally.

There are new system integrators qualified for NVIDIA AI Enterprise including AMAX, Colfax International, Exxact Corporation, and Lambda. These integrators will be joining a global ecosystem of channel partners that includes Axians, Carahsoft Technology Corp., Computacenter, Insight Enterprises, NTT, Presidio, Sirius, SoftServe, SVA System
Vertrieb Alexander GmbH, TD SYNNEX, Trace3, and World Wide Technology.

NVIDIA is offering free test drives, or the option to run on-prem. Simply apply for a free 90-day evaluation license to try NVIDIA AI Enterprise on your compatible, system.
