Canonical partners with NVIDIA to accelerate enterprise AI adoption

Canonical and NVIDIA have today announced a partnership that aims to accelerate enterprise AI and ML adoption in multi-cloud environments and at the edge Canonical partners with NVIDIA to accelerate enterprise AI adoption image

Canonical and NVIDIA say they have formed the new alliance in response to the challenge enterprises face in adopting and integrating AI and ML into their operations effectively, at scale and with minimum complexity.

Given how AI workloads have become increasingly advanced and the compute power required to support them has exponentially increased, the companies are now offering Ubuntu 18.04 LTS certified on the NVIDIA DGX-2 AI system. The Ubuntu 18.04 LTS update with NVIDIA DGX-2 AI system certification will enable containerised and cloud-native development of GPU-accelerated workloads:

  • DGX-2 offers higher levels of compute, with 16 of the world’s most advanced GPUs delivering 2 petaFLOPS of AI performance
  • Combination of DGX-2 and Ubuntu 18.04 LTS enables data scientists and engineers to move faster and at a greater scale using OS of their choice

“Ubuntu is the preferred AI and ML platform for developers and the No. 1 operating system for Kubernetes deployments on-premises and in the public cloud. This collaboration with NVIDIA enables enterprises to enhance their developers’ productivity and incorporate AI more quickly through development stages to production,” said Stephan Fabel, Director of Product at Canonical. “The combination of DGX-2 and Ubuntu helps organisations to realise the vast potential of AI, allowing them to develop and deploy models at scale via the world’s most powerful AI system.”

“DGX-2 was built to solve the world’s most complex AI challenges in a purpose-built solution,” said Tony Paikeday, Director, AI Systems, NVIDIA. “DGX-2 and Ubuntu bring the best of both worlds together, giving AI developers the power to explore without limits in a solution that enterprises can easily manage.”
