Oracle Delivers More Choices for AI Infrastructure and General-Purpose Compute
New OCI Compute instances with next-generation processors from NVIDIA and Ampere Computing help increase performance and efficiency for GPU- and CPU-based workloads
LAS VEGAS, Sept. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Oracle CloudWorld -- Oracle today announced upcoming availability for new Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Compute instances powered by NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs, NVIDIA L40S GPUs, and Ampere AmpereOne™ CPUs. The new OCI Compute instances are designed to make running a variety of workloads—from training, fine-tuning, and AI model inferencing to running cloud-native applications and video transcoding applications—in the cloud more accessible to organizations while providing improved price-performance.
The upcoming OCI Compute instances based on next-generation NVIDIA GPUs will include:
"OCI was one of the first cloud providers to offer bare metal instances natively which is a key part of our ability to make high-performance computing more accessible to organizations everywhere. By providing access to processors from NVIDIA and Ampere Computing in OCI, we are giving our customers the performance, efficiency, and flexibility they need in their cloud infrastructure to power anything from general purpose workloads all the way up to high-performance AI projects," said Donald Lu, senior vice president, software development, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. "Oracle is early to the market with cloud compute offerings designed specifically to support the development and use of AI. We are well-positioned to lead the cloud computing industry as the market grows by supporting the increasing number of AI providers and users."
"The collaboration between NVIDIA and Oracle is helping democratize access to cutting-edge GPUs on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure," said Ian Buck, vice president of Hyperscale and High Performance Computing, NVIDIA. "NVIDIA H100 and L40S GPUs on OCI will enable AI innovation with unprecedented performance, scalability, and security for customers across all verticals."
"Oracle was the first cloud services provider to globally deploy compute instances based on Ampere processors," said Jeff Wittich, chief product officer, Ampere Computing. "This new generation of Ampere A2-based instances from Oracle Cloud Infrastructure will provide up to an industry-leading 320 cores per instance for even better performance, workload density, and scale."
"The upcoming OCI Compute instances, powered by NVIDIA GPUs, will give us the power we need to train and serve the next generation of industry-leading Cohere enterprise AI models," said Martin Kon, president and COO, Cohere. "Oracle's cloud provides reliable and powerful computing resources to build high-performance models that can be embedded into any application and used in a wide range of industries."
"Training large language models on the MosaicML Platform requires thousands of NVIDIA GPUs running on OCI's bare metal compute instances, which leverage high-performance storage and ultrafast cluster networking," said Naveen Rao, vice president of Generative AI, Databricks. "We chose OCI for its superior price-performance for AI training and inferencing at scale and look forward to using the OCI Compute instances with NVIDIA H100 and L40S GPUs."
"Uber is revolutionizing the way people and things move around cities. As part of a multicloud architecture, we leverage Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for critical workloads because of its superior security, performance, and flexibility," said Kamran Zargahi, senior director of tech strategy, Uber. "We use Standard and Dense I/O instances based on AMD processors, and plan to use OCI Compute with NVIDIA GPUs in the future."
