NVIDIA and Scaleway Pace Improvement for European Startups and Enterprises

Europe’s startup ecosystem is getting a lift of accelerated computing for generative AI.

NVIDIA and cloud service supplier (CSP) Scaleway are working collectively to ship entry to GPUs, NVIDIA AI Enterprise software program, and providers for turbocharging giant language fashions (LLMs) and generative AI growth for European startups.

Scaleway, a subsidiary of French telecommunications supplier iliad Group, is providing cloud credit for entry to its AI supercomputer cluster, which packs 1,016 NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs. As a regional CSP, Scaleway additionally offers sovereign infrastructure that ensures entry and compliance with EU knowledge safety legal guidelines — crucial to companies with a European footprint.

Sovereign Cloud, Generative AI 

Complying with laws governing how knowledge and metadata will be saved in cloud computing is crucial. When doing enterprise in Europe, U.S. firms, for instance, must adjust to EU laws on sovereignty to safe knowledge in opposition to entry from overseas adversaries or entities. Noncompliance dangers knowledge vulnerabilities, monetary penalties and authorized penalties.

Regional CSPs like Scaleway present a strategic path ahead for firms to do enterprise in Europe with a sovereign infrastructure. iliad Group’s knowledge facilities, the place Scaleway operates, are fortified by compliance certifications that guarantee knowledge safety, overlaying key facets like healthcare, public security, governance and public service actions.

Delivering Sovereign Accelerated Computing 

NVIDIA is working with Scaleway to increase entry to sovereign accelerated computing within the EU, enabling firms to deploy AI functions and scale up sooner.   

By way of the NVIDIA Inception program, startups already counting on the sovereign cloud computing capabilities of Scaleway’s NVIDIA-accelerated infrastructure embrace Hugging Face, with extra to return. Inception is a free international program that gives technical steering, coaching, reductions and networking alternatives.

Inception member Hugging Face, based mostly in New York and with operations in France, creates instruments and sources to assist builders construct, deploy and prepare AI fashions.

“AI is the brand new manner of constructing expertise, and making the quickest AI accelerators accessible inside regional clouds is essential to democratizing AI the world over, enabling enterprises and startups to construct the experiences of tomorrow,” stated Jeff Boudier, head of product at Hugging Face. “I’m actually excited that chosen French startups will be capable of entry NVIDIA H100 GPUs in Scaleway’s cluster by way of the brand new startup program Scaleway and Hugging Face simply introduced with Meta and Station F.”

H100 and NVIDIA AI to Scale 

Scaleway’s newly obtainable Nabuchodonosor supercomputer, an NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD with 127 NVIDIA DGX H100 techniques, will assist startups in France and throughout Europe scale up AI workloads.

Regional Inception members will even be capable of entry NVIDIA AI Enterprise software program on Scaleway Market, together with the NVIDIA NeMo framework and pretrained fashions for constructing LLMs, NVIDIA RAPIDS for accelerated knowledge science, and NVIDIA Triton Inference Server and NVIDIA TensorRT-LLM for reinforcing inference.

NVIDIA Inception Companies on Faucet

NVIDIA Inception has greater than 4,000 members throughout Europe. Member firms of Scaleway’s personal startup program are eligible to affix Inception for advantages and sources. Scaleway is earmarking firms to fast-track for Inception membership.

Inception members acquire entry to cloud computing credit, NVIDIA Deep Studying Institute programs, expertise specialists, most well-liked pricing on {hardware} and software program, steering on the most recent software program growth kits and AI frameworks, in addition to alternatives for matchmaking with buyers.
