Oracle Cloud World, a subsidiary of Oracle (NYSE:ORCL), expanded upon its alliance with NVIDIA ( NASDAQ: NVDA) by announcing a multiple year partnership to push its accelerated computing and artificial intelligence divisions.
The collaboration includes bringing the full NVIDIA accelerating computer stack, which is everything from graphics processing units to systems and software, to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).
“To drive long-term success in today’s business environment, organizations need answers and insight faster than ever. Our expanded alliance with NVIDIA will deliver the best of both companies’ expertise to help customers across industries – from healthcare and manufacturing to telecommunications and financial services – overcome the multitude of challenges they face,” said Safra Catz, CEO for Oracle.

Oracle Cloud World and NVIDIA
The deal here is to boost the abilities of various enterprises doing business with either company in their pursuits of AI training and deep learning. That’s why OCI is adding tens of thousands more of NVIDIA’s GPU’s, including the A100 and forthcoming H100. When combined with OCI’s AI cloud infrastructure, it provides enterprises with a broad portfolio of options for AI.
The partnership between NVIDIA and Oracle has been going on for years, including accelerated computing and software available for OCI.
“Accelerated computing and AI are key to tackling rising costs in every aspect of operating businesses. Enterprises are increasingly turning to cloud-first AI strategies that enable fast development and scalable deployment. Our partnership with Oracle will put NVIDIA AI within easy reach for thousands of companies,” said Jensen Huang, CEO and founder, NVIDIA.
NVIDIA AI Enterprise includes processing engines for each portion of the AI workflow. Everything from data processing and AI model training as well as simulations and large-scale deployment will be covered. As a result, organizations can develop their predictive models for greater automation, from which they’ll get access to business insights from conversational AI, recommender programs, computer vision and others. Overall, the plan is to release the NVIDIA AI Enterprise on OCI, giving customers access to the platform.
