Bringing AI and High Performance Computing to Enterprise

Today’s global challenges aren’t easy to solve. Issues related to our environment, economy, energy, and public health system require modern, transformative solutions. Microsoft Azure addresses these challenges with key high-performance computing (HPC) enablement and orchestration components integrated into a global-scale cloud platform.

We’re working hard to empower every organization with AI so that they can make smarter products and solve some of the world’s most pressing problems. By working closely with NVIDIA and harnessing the power of GPU-accelerated systems, we’ve made Cognitive Toolkit and Microsoft Azure the fastest, most versatile AI platform. AI is now within reach of any business.

- Harry Shum, Executive Vice President of Microsoft’s Artificial Intelligence and Research Group

Every industry has awoken to the potential of AI. We've worked with Microsoft to create a lightning-fast AI platform that is available to Microsoft Azure cloud users. With Microsoft's global reach, every company around the world can now tap the power of AI to transform their business.

- Jensen Huang, CEO and Founder of NVIDIA
