CoreWeave Among First Cloud Providers to Offer NVIDIA HGX H100 Supercomputers Set to Transform AI Landscape

CoreWeave | November 07, 2022

CoreWeave, a specialized cloud provider built for large-scale GPU-accelerated workloads, today announced it is among the first to offer cloud instances with NVIDIA HGX H100 supercomputing. CoreWeave, Amazon, Google, Microsoft and Oracle are the first cloud providers included in the launch of this groundbreaking AI platform. CoreWeave was the first Elite Cloud Service Provider for Compute in the NVIDIA Partner Network (NPN) and is also among the NPN’s Elite Cloud Service Providers for Visualization. “This validates what we’re building and where we’re heading,” said Michael Intrator, CoreWeave co-founder and CEO. “CoreWeave’s success will continue to be driven by our commitment to making GPU-accelerated compute available to startup and enterprise clients alike. Investing in the NVIDIA HGX H100 platform allows us to expand that commitment, and our pricing model makes us the ideal partner for any companies looking to run large-scale, GPU-accelerated AI workloads.” NVIDIA’s ecosystem and platform are the industry standard for AI. The NVIDIA HGX H100 platform allows a leap forward in the breadth and scope of AI work businesses can now tackle. The NVIDIA HGX H100 enables up to seven times better efficiency in high-performance computing (HPC) applications, up to nine times faster AI training on the largest models and up to 30 times faster AI inference than the NVIDIA HGX A100. That speed, combined with the lowest NVIDIA GPUDirect network latency in the market with the NVIDIA Quantum-2 InfiniBand platform, reduces the training time of AI models to “days or hours instead of months.” Such technology is critical now that AI has permeated every industry. “AI and HPC workloads require a powerful infrastructure that delivers cost-effective performance and scale to meet the needs of today’s most demanding workloads and applications. “CoreWeave’s new offering of instances featuring NVIDIA HGX H100 supercomputers will enable customers the flexibility and performance needed to power large-scale HPC applications.” Dave Salvator, director of product marketing at NVIDIA In the same way that drivers of fuel-efficient cars save money on gas, CoreWeave clients spend between 50% to 80% less on compute resources. The company’s performance-adjusted cost structure is two-fold. First, clients only pay for the HPC resources they use, and CoreWeave cloud instances are highly configurable. Second, CoreWeave’s Kubernetes-native infrastructure and networking architecture produce performance advantages, including industry-leading spin-up times and responsive auto-scaling capabilities that allow clients to use compute more efficiently. CoreWeave competitors charge for idle compute capacity to maintain access to GPUs and use legacy-networking products that degrade performance with scale. “CoreWeave’s infrastructure is purpose-built for large-scale GPU-accelerated workloads — we specialize in serving the most demanding AI and machine learning applications,” said Brian Venturo, CoreWeave co-founder and chief technology officer. “We empower our clients to create world-changing technology by delivering practical access to high-performance compute at scale, on top of the industry’s fastest and most flexible infrastructure.” CoreWeave leverages a range of open-source Kubernetes projects, integrates with best-in-class technologies such as Determined.AI and offers support for open-source AI models including Stable Diffusion, GPT-NeoX-20B and BLOOM as part of its mission to lead the world in AI and machine learning infrastructure. Founded in 2017, CoreWeave provides fast, flexible, and highly available GPU compute resources that are up to 35 times faster and 80% less expensive than large, generalized public clouds. An Elite Cloud Service Provider for Compute and Visualization in the NPN, CoreWeave offers cloud services for compute-intensive projects, including AI, machine learning, visual effects and rendering, batch processing and pixel streaming. CoreWeave’s infrastructure is purpose-built for burstable workloads, with the ability to scale up or down in seconds. About CoreWeave CoreWeave is a specialized cloud provider, delivering a massive scale of GPU compute resources on top of the industry’s fastest and most flexible infrastructure. CoreWeave builds cloud solutions for compute intensive use cases — digital assets, VFX and rendering, machine learning and AI, batch processing and pixel streaming — that are up to 35 times faster and 80% less expensive than the large, generalized public clouds.

Fastly Launches “Fast Forward” Initiative to Support Open Source and Internet Infrastructure

Fastly | November 10, 2022

Fastly, Inc., the world’s fastest global edge cloud platform, today announced the relaunch of its industry-leading Open Source and Nonprofit Program as “Fast Forward,” with a renewed focus on building community among the builders and maintainers of an internet that is faster, safer, and more inclusive. The announcement was made at Altitude, Fastly’s annual flagship customer conference. Fast Forward is a set of broad-reaching programs designed to empower and support open source projects, nonprofit organizations, and developers in their endeavors to build great things with unmatched ease, performance, and security. Extending Fastly’s deep commitment to open source, Fast Forward will offer free services to open source projects and the nonprofits that support them. Fast Forward will also establish and foster a community of these stakeholders so they can interact with and learn from one another, as well as with the broader developer and open source community. Fast Forward stems from Fastly’s mission to help make the internet a better place, where all experiences are fast, engaging, and safe. At its core, Fastly is driven to be part of an industry that is open, transparent and collaborative – working together to expand and preserve resilience, portability, and interoperability. Fastly believes companies that operate at a global scale are responsible for contributing their expertise to the communal body of knowledge which makes up the open internet: standards, protocols, open source technology, and policies. “Providing Fastly’s best in class services to open source projects and standards initiatives has the power to drive our shared mission of making the internet a better place, It’s important for us to support the organizations that fuel Internet innovation” -Fastly CEO Todd Nightingale Fast Forward is just one element of Fastly’s rich heritage in open source and open standards: Fastly is a founding member of the Bytecode Alliance along with Red Hat, Mozilla, and Intel; works alongside industry partners such as Microsoft, Google, and Apple and more to contribute to Private Access Tokens; and encourages its employees to contribute to open source through projects like Pushpin, WAF Efficacy, and more – just to name a few initiatives. Fastly also has a long-standing policy for its customer community, and only works with customers and partners who reflect Fastly’s values. There’s so much great creativity on the internet that’s inspiring but doesn’t always have the support it deserves, Fast Forward is Fastly’s commitment to helping everyone build a better internet. From open source technologies, to the fundamental protocols and standards that make the internet go, we’re telling every developer and every creator that we’ve got their backs, no matter what technologies, tools or stacks they use. We can’t wait to see how they use that potential to build and scale an even better internet,said Anil Dash, VP of Developer Experience at Fastly. Fastly’s investment in open source has provided valuable support to organizations like the Rust Software Foundation, the Apache Software Foundation, and the Scratch Foundation. Their leaders talk about the benefits they get from Fastly’s Fast Forward Program: Joel Marcey, Director of Operations and Advocacy at the Rust Foundation, said, As a non-profit organization supporting the Rust Project, the Rust Foundation believes the future of software development is looking brighter every day thanks to Rust's inherent benefits such as memory safety, energy efficiency, and scalability. But for the Rust Project to meet the demands of its growing popularity, diversified and cost-effective infrastructure is critical. The Rust Foundation is grateful to be included in the Fast Forward program, which will allow the Rust Project to harness Fastly's full-site delivery and powerful Compute@Edge platform at no cost. It's partnerships like these that will contribute to the growth and sustainability of Rust into the future. Daniel Gruno, Infrastructure Architect at the Apache Foundation, said, Fastly's sponsorship allowed The Apache Software Foundation to replace a complicated mirror infrastructure with a simple content delivery network (CDN) that is largely transparent to our projects and users. In addition, it's allowed the Infrastructure team to spend less time on our distribution network and more time on higher value projects for the foundation. Colby Gutierrez-Kraybill, Principal Software Engineer at Scratch Foundation, said, Thanks to Fastly's global reach and ongoing support, we are able to fulfill our mission at the Scratch Foundation of providing young people all over the world with digital tools and opportunities to imagine, create, share, and learn. We are grateful for Fastly's partnership, allowing us to stay flexible and agile as our platforms Scratch and ScratchJr grow globally as leading creative learning tools. To qualify for free services through the Fast Forward Program, members must freely distribute their codebase and align with Fastly’s open source values: open, community oriented, inclusive, friendly to new contributors, and built on trust. If accepted, they in turn commit to sharing knowledge and resources with the Fast Forward community and beyond.
