More than 20 NVIDIA NGC software resources are now available for free directly in AWS Marketplace to speed AI deployments in healthcare, conversational AI, HPC, robotics, data science and more.
AI is transforming businesses across every industry, but like any journey, the first steps can be the most important.
To help enterprises get a running start, we’re collaborating with Amazon Web Services to bring 21 NVIDIA NGC software resources directly to the AWS Marketplace. The AWS Marketplace is where customers find, buy and immediately start using software and services that run on AWS.
NGC is a catalog of software that is optimized to run on NVIDIA GPU cloud instances, such as the Amazon EC2 P4d instance featuring the record-breaking performance of NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs. AWS customers can deploy this software free of charge to accelerate their AI deployments.
We first began providing GPU-optimized software through the NVIDIA NGC catalog in 2017. Since then, industry demand for these resources has skyrocketed. More than 250,000 unique users have now downloaded more than 1 million of the AI containers, pretrained models, application frameworks, Helm charts and other machine learning resources available on the catalog.
Teaming Up for Another First in the Cloud
AWS is the first cloud service provider to offer the NGC catalog on their marketplace. Many organizations look to the cloud first for new deployment, so having NGC software available at the fingertips of data scientists and developers can help enterprises hit the ground running. With NGC, they can easily get started on new AI projects without having to leave the AWS ecosystem.
“AWS and NVIDIA have been working together to accelerate computing for more than a decade, and we are delighted to offer the NVIDIA NGC catalog in AWS Marketplace,” said Chris Grusz, director of AWS Marketplace at Amazon Web Services. “With NVIDIA NGC software now available directly in AWS Marketplace, customers will be able to simplify and speed up their AI deployment pipeline by accessing and deploying these specialized software resources directly on AWS.”
NGC AI Containers Debuting Today in AWS Marketplace
To help data scientists and developers build and deploy AI-powered solutions, the NGC catalog offers hundreds of NVIDIA GPU-accelerated machine learning frameworks and industry-specific software development kits. Today’s launch of NGC on AWS Marketplace features many of NVIDIA’s most popular GPU-accelerated AI software in healthcare, recommender systems, conversational AI, computer vision, HPC, robotics, data science and machine learning, including:
