Microsoft teamed up with OpenAI to build a massive AI supercomputer in Azure
Microsoft today announced that it has teamed up with OpenAI, the startup trying to build a general artificial intelligence, with — among other things — a $1 billion investment from Microsoft, to create one of the world’s fastest supercomputers on top of Azure’s infrastructure. Microsoft says that the 285,000-core machine would have ranked in the top five of the TOP500 supercomputer rankings.
Because Microsoft doesn’t actually tell us much more than that, except for a few more specs that say it had 10,000 GPUs and 400 gigabits per second of network connectivity per server, we’ll just have to take Microsoft’s and OpenAI’s word for this.
OpenAI has made a name for itself by training very large models. That’s obviously the purpose of a project like this, too.
Dell Technologies Cloud Gets ‘New Breadth’ With Google Cloud
Dell Technologies, the $91 billion infrastructure giant, is taking its cloud architecture to the next level by teaming with Google to create the new Dell Technologies Cloud OneFS for Google Cloud to help customers simplify management of private and public cloud storage.
Dell Technologies Cloud OneFS for Google Cloud combines the scalability and performance of Dell EMC Isilon, the company’s scale-out network-attached storage platform, with Google Cloud’s analytics and compute services through a native cloud experience that uses the same core software.
Gouin said the integration of Dell Technologies Cloud with Google Cloud simplifies management of public and private cloud storage while also giving channel partners more opportunities in instances where a customer has already chosen Google Cloud as well as the ability to sell larger solutions.
