Nvidia has announced a new collaboration with Microsoft that will result in two new cloud-based services from the former, with hosting courtesy of Microsoft’s Azure. These announcements were part of today’s GTC developer and AI conference.

Nvidia Omniverse Cloud

Nvidia Ominverse Cloud will be a cloud service aimed at businesses, with Microsoft 365 apps like Teams, Sharepoint and Onedrive integrated to help them create Metaverse apps and services.

Through Omniverse Cloud, NVIDIA and Microsoft provide customers a full-stack cloud environment and platform capabilities to design, develop, deploy and manage industrial metaverse applications. Omniverse Cloud also connects with the products that customers use from NVIDIA’s partner ecosystem.

Nvidia DGX Cloud

According to Nvidia this will be an “AI supercomputing service that gives enterprises immediate access to the infrastructure and software needed to train advanced models for generative AI and other groundbreaking applications.”

Adopters will be able to rent cloud clusters (at reportedly $37K per month) and access to all the software infrastructure needed to train their own AI models.

As previously mentioned, both these coming services will be powered by Microsoft Azure. Nvidia also made several other announcements today including a partnership to help Shutterstock create AI-generated 3D models.
