NVIDIA announced an extensive collaboration with Tata Group to deliver AI computing infrastructure and platforms for developing AI solutions.
The collaboration will bring state-of-the-art AI capabilities within reach to thousands of organizations, businesses AI researchers, and hundreds of startups in India.
The companies will work together to build an AI supercomputer powered by the next-generation NVIDIA® GH200 Grace Hopper Superchip to achieve performance that is best in class.
“The global generative AI race is in full steam,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA.
“Data centers worldwide are shifting to GPU computing to build energy-efficient infrastructure to support the exponential demand for generative AI”, Jensen Huang added.
“We are delighted to partner with Tata as they expand their cloud infrastructure service with NVIDIA AI supercomputing to support the exponential demand of generative AI startups and processing of large language models.” Huang said.
Tata Communications and NVIDIA will develop an AI cloud in India aimed at providing critical infrastructure that enables computing’s next lifecycle. Tata Communications’ robust global network combined with the AI cloud will empower enterprises to transfer data across the AI cloud at high speeds, enabling them to effectively bring the AI cloud to the doorstep of every enterprise.
TCS will utilize the AI infrastructure and capabilities to build and process generative AI applications. The NVIDIA partnership will further enable TCS to collaborate with its customers to drive reimagination with an AI-first approach. Additionally, TCS will upskill its 600,000-strong workforce by leveraging the partnership.
This partnership will also catalyze the AI-led transformation across Tata Group companies ranging from manufacturing to consumer businesses.
