Nvidia and Microsoft have partnered to grant millions of Microsoft enterprise users access to the industrial metaverse and AI resources through the cloud. The partnership of the two giants promises to accelerate the digitalization of businesses. Nvidia announced this in a blog post on Tuesday

Microsoft Azure will host Nvidia’s Omniverse Cloud and DGX Cloud. This will allow users access to a full-stack environment for designing, developing, and managing industrial metaverse apps. This will enable companies to engage in the industrial metaverse and train sophisticated models for generative AI and more. 

Nvidia and Microsoft’s partnership will also combine Microsoft 365 applications, OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams, with Nvidia Omniverse to connect productivity and 3D network platforms. Consequently, this will allow enterprises to work together more efficiently and create 3D industrial metaverse applications.

According to Nvidia’s founder and CEO, Jensen Huang, customers will enjoy the best of both companies’ strengths from the collaboration. He also revealed that the world’s biggest companies plan to “reinvent themselves software-inclined tech companies”

“NVIDIA AI Omniverse supercharges industrial digitalization. Building NVIDIA Omniverse Cloud within Microsoft Azure brings customers the best of our combined capabilities.”

According to Satya Nadella, Chairman and CEO of Microsoft, the partnership intends to bring the most powerful AI supercomputer to fruition.

“The next wave of computing is being born. Together with NVIDIA, we’re focused on building out services that bridge the digital and physical worlds to automate, simulate, and predict every business process.”

The partnership will see NVIDIA’s Omniverse and Azure Cloud Services Digital Twins and Internet of Things. This will allow businesses to connect real-time data from sensors in the physical world to their digital replicas. Consequently, they can create and operate more dynamic, accurate, and highly functional 3D digital twins. The Azure environment will provide the cloud infrastructure to deploy enterprise services regarding identity, security, and storage. 

NVIDIA’s Omniverse Cloud will be accessible on Azure by the second half of 2022. DGX Cloud will come earlier as it will be ready on Azure by Q2 2023. The device will provide businesses with monthly NVIDIA DGX AI supercomputing and software capabilities.
