Tue 2 Jul 2024

Provider of High-Performance Computing (HPC) solutions provider, Northern Data Group, has announced the acquisition of NVIDIA H200 GPUs through a newly established partnership with Supermicro, a global Application-Optimised Total IT Solutions company.

Northern Data Group’s cloud platform, Taiga Cloud, will be the first Cloud Service Provider (CSP) in Europe to offer access to the H200 GPU hardware, with delivery and deployment scheduled for Q4 2024.

This partnership with Supermicro for the NVIDIA H200 GPUs aims to improve its HPC solutions and complement its existing offering of best-in-class Generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) technologies.

Founder and CEO of Northern Data Group, Aroosh Thillainathan, stated ‘our GenAI platform is constantly evolving and we are proud to collaborate with Supermicro to be the first in Europe to offer access to NVIDIA H200 GPUs’.

“This is a testament to our commitment to continually offer industry-leading, next-generation solutions. As an Elite Partner of NVIDIA, we are proud to continue to offer cutting-edge technology, deployed in line with recommended architecture references to maximise the technology,” added Thillainathan.

The first full installation will include over 2,000 NVIDIA H200 GPUs utilising BlueField-3 data processing units (DPUs) and NVIDIA Mellanox CX7 NICs, delivering 32 petaFLOPS of performance. This configuration, based on NVIDIA-referenced architecture, will allow userz to access more bandwidth, faster, and more efficient data storage access.

The H200 GPUs will be housed in one of Northern Data Group’s European data centres, powered by carbon-free, renewable energy, with a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) ratio of less than 1.2.

“Supermicro is fully committed to delivering the most performant and energy-efficient AI infrastructure and solutions. This collaboration will accelerate availability and bring the best value for users in Europe,” said Vik Malyala, President & Managing Director, EMEA; SVP, Technology & AI at Supermicro.
