The surge in AI and machine learning-based applications has created new demands from customers to dynamically access the compute resources needed to execute and scale critical AI, machine learning, and high performance computing (HPC) workloads. Applied Digital Corporation, a designer, builder, and operator of next-generation digital infrastructure designed for HPC applications, announced it has formed a strategic partnership with ZEDEDA, the edge orchestration provider, that will power Applied Digital’s new integrated on-demand Transmutable AI cloud service offering to address the exploding demand for AI computing resources and infrastructure.
Transmutable AI allows customer workloads to run seamlessly across a commutable infrastructure environment. This new service will augment Applied Digital’s recently launched AI cloud service by leveraging Applied Digital’s bare-metal infrastructure. By integrating ZEDEDA’s management and orchestration service, this offering will enable enterprise customers to purchase and use Graphic Processing Unit (GPU) resources on-demand and at scale across all Applied Digital’s data centers for both virtualized and bare-metal edge and cloud AI environments.
The service is designed to provide customers with a seamless experience, encapsulating dynamic on-demand and long-term allocation, fully integrated with orchestration, storage, and networking across all instances and applications. Customers will be able to purchase GPU resources by the hour and allocate any Applied Digital resources needed during a project's initial development, enabling effortless scaling as the project progresses into production. The new service is expected to go live during the second half of 2023.
