VMworld  At VMworld 2020, VMware and NVIDIA today announ짯ced a broad part짯ner짯ship to deli짯ver both an end-to-end enter짯pri짯se plat짯form for AI and a new archi짯tec짯tu짯re for data cen짯ter, cloud and edge that uses NVIDIA짰 DPUs (data pro짯ces짯sing units) to sup짯port exis짯ting and next-gene짯ra짯ti짯on applications.

Through this col짯la짯bo짯ra짯ti짯on, the rich set of AI soft짯ware available on the NVIDIA NGCTM hub will be inte짯gra짯ted into VMware vSphe짯reVMware Cloud Foun짯da짯ti짯on and VMware Tan짯zu. This will help acce짯le짯ra짯te AI adop짯ti짯on, enab짯ling enter짯pri짯ses to extend exis짯ting infra짯struc짯tu짯re for AI, mana짯ge all appli짯ca짯ti짯ons with a sin짯gle set of ope짯ra짯ti짯ons, and deploy AI-rea짯dy infra짯struc짯tu짯re whe짯re the data resi짯des, across the data cen짯ter, cloud and edge.

Addi짯tio짯nal짯ly, as part of Pro짯ject Mon짯terey sepa짯ra짯te짯ly announ짯ced today, the com짯pa짯nies will part짯ner to deli짯ver an archi짯tec짯tu짯re for the hybrid cloud based on Smart짯NIC tech짯no짯lo짯gy, inclu짯ding NVIDIA셲 pro짯gramma짯ble BlueField짰-2 DPU. The com짯bi짯na짯ti짯on of VMware Cloud Foun짯da짯ti짯on and NVIDIA BlueField2 will offer next-gene짯ra짯ti짯on infra짯struc짯tu짯re that is pur짯po짯se-built for the demands of AI, machi짯ne lear짯ning, high-through짯put and data-cen짯tric apps. It will also deli짯ver expan짯ded appli짯ca짯ti짯on acce짯le짯ra짯ti짯on bey짯ond AI to all enter짯pri짯se workloads and pro짯vi짯de an extra lay짯er of secu짯ri짯ty through a new archi짯tec짯tu짯re that off짯loads cri짯ti짯cal data cen짯ter ser짯vices from the CPU to Smart짯NICs and pro짯gramma짯ble DPUs.
