A new AI cloud service has been introduced by G-Core Labs, a global CDN provider delivering cloud and edge infrastructure solutions, to serve businesses at every level of their artificial intelligence (AI) adoption journey. By integrating Graphcore’s groundbreaking IPUs with its own AI Cloud, G-Core Labs has built a new AI Infrastructure-as-a-Service, giving even small businesses access to these AI resources being delivered from Luxembourg.
The Graphcore IPU (Intelligence Processing Unit) is a completely new processor, specifically designed for AI compute. It is made to process machine learning and is twice as powerful as typical CPUs. G-Core Labs enables organizations to effortlessly grow their AI integration while saving on setup and processing expenses by including this into its secure edge cloud architecture.
“Working together, Graphcore and G-Core Labs will make the power and flexibility of the IPU available to anyone who wants to take their AI computing to the next level,” said Nigel Toon, co-founder and CEO of Graphcore. “Whether that’s accelerating their current workloads or exploring the use of next-generation models that demand specialist systems designed for artificial intelligence.”
For companies of all sizes, this AI infrastructure as a service would be of utmost importance. Teams can develop more quickly thanks to cloud services by taking care of needs like setup, technical infrastructure, storage, and security. Clients will receive software tools and integrations to support every stage of the AI lifecycle, from development to deployment, with G-Core Labs’ IPU-based AI infrastructure. This would help increase productivity and the effectiveness of the AI infrastructure. Work involving TensorFlow, Keras, PyTorch, Hugging Face, Paddle, and ONNX as well as other machine learning and AI solutions can be made easier by this.
‘We are immensely proud that G-Core Labs is the first European cloud service provider to partner with Graphcore to bring innovations to a rapidly-changing cloud market,” said Andre Reitenbach, CEO of G-Core Labs. “Artificial Intelligence is evolving fast, and users are looking to trusted technology partners like G-Core Labs for powerful AI cloud services that are highly efficient, easily accessible, and highly flexible, to suit their changing needs.”
Businesses in a variety of industries, including banking, healthcare, manufacturing, and scientific research, can benefit from the IPU-based AI cloud from G-Core Labs. The cloud’s debut would be important for end users as well as Luxembourg’s plans for high-performance computing. According to G-Core Labs, being the home of this new platform may contribute to Luxembourg’s status as the center of the European AI hub and aligns with the EU’s aspirations for European Digital Sovereignty.
This initiative could be significant for the growth of the European business community in addition to being a unique AI infrastructure. G-Core Labs joined as a founding member of the new Luxembourg-United Kingdom business club in London, which will henceforth act as a bridge between Luxembourg and the United Kingdom, to encourage close collaboration between nations and businesses from diverse economic sectors.
“This partnership between Luxembourg-based cloud and edge solutions provider G-Core Labs and the UK IPU producer Graphcore in the context of the launch of the ‘Business Club Luxembourg – United Kingdom’ illustrates not only the vast opportunities that arise for trade and cooperation between the two countries but also confirms the importance of launching a bilateral Business Club in the British capital,” said Christophe Brighi, Head of Economic and Commercial Affairs, Embassy of Luxembourg in London. Furthermore, it confirms Luxembourg’s position as a leading data economy in the EU. Here’s to a successful BCLUK launch and to many partnerships to come!”
