How VMware is deploying AI tools through data centres

The introduction of Private AI offerings will drive enterprise adoption of GenAI and tap into the value of trusted data to unlock the business gains while adhering to organisations’ practical privacy and compliance needs. This is being rolled out with new VMware products announced by the technology giant, including VMware Private AI Foundation with NVIDIA, extending the companies’ strategic partnership to ready enterprises that run VMware’s cloud infrastructure for the next era of generative AI, and VMware Private AI Reference Architecture for Open Source, which will help customers achieve their desired AI outcomes by supporting best-in-class open source software (OSS) technologies today and in the future.

Raghu Raghuram, CEO, VMware, said: “With VMware Private AI, we are empowering our customers to tap into their trusted data so they can build and run AI models quickly and more securely in their multi-cloud environment.”

How VMware Private works

VMware Private is comprised of a set of integrated AI tools to empower enterprises to run proven models trained on their private data in a cost-efficient manner and will enable these models to be deployed in data centres, on leading public clouds, and at the edge. It does so by integrating VMware’s Private AI architecture, built on VMware Cloud Foundation, with NVIDIA AI Enterprise software and accelerated computing, offering accelerated computing infrastructure and cloud infrastructure software to customise models and run generative AI applications. VMware Private AI Foundation with NVIDIA will be supported by Dell Technologies, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and Lenovo.

Lenovo and VMware have an expanded partnership of new solutions, it has been announced, designed from their joint Edge and Cloud Innovation Labs to enable customers to utilise modern edge, AI, and hybrid cloud capabilities powered by NVIDIA in order to harness data, delivering AI and real-time insights for accelerated business outcomes.

New solutions announced as part of the extended partnership include Reference Design for Generative AI. Based on LLMs, the solution shows businesses how to deploy and commercialise GenAI tools and foundation models using pre-validated, fully integrated, and performance-optimised solutions for data centres running on VMware vSphere.
