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.

TransUnion Accelerates Cloud-Native Innovation with Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform

Red Hat, Inc. | October 19, 2022

Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that TransUnion has expanded its global automation capabilities with Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform to accelerate feature development for customers and migrate to the cloud at scale and velocity. Ansible Automation Platform helps TransUnion consolidate disparate tooling and increase the speed of delivery of new products and services to its customers. TransUnion is a global information and insights company that makes trust possible in the modern economy by providing a comprehensive picture of each person so they can be reliably and safely represented in the marketplace. TransUnion is a leading presence in more than 30 countries across five continents where they provide solutions that help create economic opportunity, great experiences and personal empowerment for hundreds of millions of people. TransUnion has been using Red Hat solutions to modernize its IT infrastructure and improve IT performance and costs for several years. Like many customers, TransUnion is expanding its use of Ansible Automation Platform to address growing demands for automation, including cloud migration and provisioning of on premises and cloud infrastructure. Ansible Automation Platform integrates with platforms that they’re already using, like AWS, so developers can automate right away with the skills they already have. Ansible Automation Platform provides a repeatable way to provision and deploy both middleware and applications right to servers in AWS, with an automation framework that provides a level of governance and compliance, but still enables teams to provision infrastructure in AWS and deploy applications. Red Hat’s expert consultants also worked with TransUnion to facilitate a broader culture of automation by integrating communities of practice, tools and processes and breaking down the silos that frequently exist when extending automation across an organization. IT teams now spend less time on repetitive work and more time on their core responsibilities, and no longer need specialized experts to fully realize the value of automation. Prior to implementing Ansible Automation Platform organization-wide, developer teams in various regions were building bespoke pipelines for automation, using templates that were sparse and duplicated across its ecosystem. With the help of Red Hat Consulting, TransUnion streamlined their underlying automation framework to consolidate tooling and create key template playbooks that are reusable, so teams have a repository of automation content that can be configured in other technical scenarios. As a result, TransUnion shortened its migration pipeline development from months to minutes, reducing the cost of feature development and speeding up the delivery to customers. TransUnion plans to continue expanding its use of Ansible Automation Platform to further consolidate and simplify its modules and frameworks in the cloud. Supporting Quotes “Our customers are operating in increasingly complex IT environments, spanning on-premises datacenters to public and private clouds, that rely on automation to effectively scale. With the organization-wide extension of Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform, TransUnion can accelerate workloads and migrate to the cloud quicker, allowing them to spend more time innovating and delivering new products to their customers.” Thomas Anderson, vice president, Ansible, Red Hat Vishal Patel, director, GTP, TransUnion As we expand our automation use in our technology and across the organization, achieving organizational alignment and interoperability is top priority for TransUnion.
