NVIDIA DGX-Ready Program Goes Global

Deploying AI at scale can be an extreme challenge for data centers. To ease the process, NVIDIA has expanded its DGX-Ready Data Center Program to 19 validated partners around the world.

DGX-Ready Data Center partners help companies access modern data center facilities for their AI infrastructure. They offer world-class facilities to host DGX AI compute infrastructure, giving more organizations access to AI-ready data center facilities while saving on capital expenditures and keeping operational costs low.

The program is now offered in 24 markets, including Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Peru, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States — with more coming soon.

Among the new DGX-Ready colocation partners is Fujitsu, equipped with more than 60 NVIDIA DGX-1 and DGX-2 systems in the Fujitsu Yokohama Data Center in Japan. Image courtesy of Fujitsu Ltd.

The Fujitsu Yokohama Data Center hosts more than 60 NVIDIA DGX-1 and DGX-2 systems,” said Hisaya Nakagawa, director at Fujitsu. “As a DGX-Ready Data Center program partner, we’re able to offer customers our world-class, state-of-the-art facility to run their most important AI workloads. With this program, customers can operationalize AI infrastructure swiftly and enjoy a jumpstart on their business transformation.”

In addition to access to a world-class data center, the DGX-Ready Data Center program offers services that can reduce the risks of new infrastructure investment.

Verne Global has also joined the program as a certified colocation provider. Customers now have the option to deploy their AI infrastructure using a cost-effective Op-Ex solution in Verne Global’s HPC-optimized campus in Iceland, which utilizes 100 percent renewable energy and relies on one of the world’s most reliable and affordable power grids.

The DGX-2 System – the world’s first two petaflop system – is the platform of choice for tackling the world’s most complex AI challenges, including complex deep neural networks that were previously untrainable. Verne Global has been selected to join the NVIDIA DGX-Ready Data Center Program following a rigorous certification process to assess its ability to provide the high specification hosting environment required for this complex, high-density system.

Enhanced Services That Accelerate Time to Insight

According to NVIDIA, select DGX-Ready colocation partners are adding “try-and-buy” options that let enterprises “test drive” their DGX infrastructure. Customers can gain valuable operational experience before they decide to deploy these systems in their own data center. Core Scientific and Flexential are among the first partners to offer this capability.

Additionally, select partners offer GPU-as-a-service options that let businesses access DGX-powered compute in an affordable model, without committing to a full system.
