Podcast #90: Start Your AI Journey for Free with NVIDIA LaunchPad

by Brian Beeler

Less than two weeks ago, NVIDIA GA’d LaunchPad, their free-to-use AI playground. With LaunchPad, customers and prospects alike can get hands-on with a complete, and well-appointed, rig thanks to Equinix, VMware, and of course NVIDIA. Because LaunchPad runs on an easy-to-access vSphere client, it’s simple for IT professionals to pick up and go. For AI pros, NVIDIA offers a number of hands-on labs, or practitioners can bring their own AI to the test environment.

NVIDIA LaunchPad IT Admin Lab

We’ve started to play around with LaunchPad. Our test environment is impressively robust; a Dell EMC PowerEdge R750 NVIDIA-Certified System with an NVIDIA A30 GPU. NVIDIA offers builds with T4 GPUs as well, depending on the use case.

While we amass our formal thoughts on the LaunchPad program, on this podcast I sit down with Luke Wignall from NVIDIA. While Luke’s LinkedIn title is ambiguous and perhaps optimistic, he is certainly one of the biggest workstation VDI nerds on the planet. In a fun twist of fate, that learning how GPUs can work in the enterprise is foundational to LaunchPad. On this podcast we get into the genesis of LaunchPad, more detail on what it is, and how IT practitioners and AI specialists can benefit.
