A Game-Changing Alliance for AI Innovation: Introducing HPE Private Cloud AI

Announced at the HPE Discover 2024 event today, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and NVIDIA unveiled a groundbreaking initiative: NVIDIA AI Computing by HPE. This unparalleled partnership promises to revolutionise the adoption of generative AI in enterprises, offering a unique combination of AI solutions and go-to-market integrations.

The star of the line-up is the first-of-its-kind HPE Private Cloud AI. This solution offers an unprecedented integration of NVIDIA AI computing, networking and software with HPE’s AI storage and compute, all within the HPE GreenLake cloud. It’s a fast, flexible and energy-efficient path for businesses of all sizes to create and deploy generative AI applications.

The HPE Private Cloud AI delivers a unique, cloud-based experience to accelerate innovation and return on investment while managing enterprise risk from AI. It offers support for various AI workloads, enterprise control for data privacy, security, and governance, and increased productivity with ITOps and AIOps capabilities.

Powered by OpsRamp AI Copilot

The new OpsRamp AI copilot enhances IT operations, boosting workload and IT efficiency. It provides a self-service cloud experience with full lifecycle management, and it’s available in four configurations to meet a wide range of AI workloads and use cases.

Decades-long Partnership Expands

HPE President and CEO Antonio Neri and NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang announced the new initiative. It marks an expansion of a long-standing partnership and demonstrates the significant commitment each company has made.

“Generative AI holds immense potential for enterprise transformation, but the complexities of fragmented AI technology contain too many risks and barriers that hamper large-scale enterprise adoption and can jeopardise a company’s most valuable asset – its proprietary data,” said Neri. “To unleash the immense potential of generative AI in the enterprise, HPE and NVIDIA co-developed a turnkey private cloud for AI that will enable enterprises to focus their resources on developing new AI use cases that can boost productivity and unlock new revenue streams.”

Cloud Experience Enabled by HPE GreenLake Cloud

HPE Private Cloud AI offers a self-service cloud experience enabled by HPE GreenLake Cloud. It provides manageability and observability to automate, orchestrate and manage endpoints, workloads and data across hybrid environments.

Accelerate Time to Value with AI

To advance the time to value for enterprises, global system integrators Deloitte, HCLTech, Infosys, TCS, and WIPRO have announced their support of the NVIDIA AI Computing by HPE portfolio and HPE Private Cloud AI.

Final Thoughts

This announcement of NVIDIA AI Computing by HPE is more than just the unveiling of a new product; it represents a significant step forward in the development and adoption of generative AI. It’s a perfect illustration of how collaboration can lead to innovation, with two giants of the tech world coming together to develop a solution that promises to streamline the use of AI.
