Data Analytics

Data Analytics

Data science workflows have traditionally been slow and cumbersome, relying on CPUs to load, filter, and manipulate data and train and deploy models. GPUs substantially reduce infrastructure costs and provide superior performance for end-to-end data science workflows using NVIDIA RAPIDS open-source software libraries.

AI Training

AI Training

With deep learning neural networks becoming more complex, AI training times have dramatically increased, resulting in lower productivity and higher costs. NVIDIA software solutions significantly accelerate training, resulting in deeper insights in less time, significant cost savings, and faster time to ROI.

AI Inference

AI Inference

There's an increasing demand for sophisticated AI-enabled services like computer vision, conversational AI, and personalized recommender systems. At the same time, datasets are growing, networks are getting more complex, and latency requirements are tightening to meet user expectations. GPU-optimized resources make these services possible with the speed and performance they need.

High-Performance Computing

High-Performance Computing

High-performance computing (HPC) is one of the most essential tools fueling the advancement of science. Over 700 applications in a broad range of domains are accelerated by GPUs computing and popular languages like C, C++, Fortran, and Python are being used to develop, optimize, and deploy these applications, paving the way to scientific discovery.



From data science to virtual environments, enterprises are tackling larger, more complex graphics workloads than ever before. NVIDIA® Quadro RTXGPUs with NVIDIA virtual GPU software in the data center delivers the power to meet these demanding visual computing challenges. With advanced technology for AI, real-time ray tracing, and graphics, IT teams can deploy servers capable of a wide range of workloads at a fraction of the cost, space, and power requirements of CPU-based solutions.

Develop, Optimize, and Deploy GPU-Accelerated Apps

The NVIDIA CUDA® Toolkit provides a development environment for creating high-performance, GPU-accelerated applications. With the CUDA Toolkit, you can develop, optimize, and deploy your applications on GPU-accelerated embedded systems, desktop workstations, and laptops enterprise data centers, and cloud-based platforms.

Deploy and Run Workloads Faster with Containers

Spanning AI, data science, and HPC, the NGC container registry features an extensive range of GPU-optimized software for NVIDIA GPUs.

Tuned, tested and optimized by NVIDIA. NGC containers provide powerful and easy-to-deploy software proven to deliver the fastest results, allowing users to build solutions from a tested framework with complete control.


Jump-Start Your Projects with Pre-Trained Models

Many AI applications have common needs: classification, object detection, language translation, text-to-speech, recommender engines, sentiment analysis, and more. When developing applications with these capabilities, it’s much faster to start with a pre-trained model and then tune it for a specific use case. NGC offers pre-trained models for a variety of common AI tasks that are optimized for NVIDIA Tensor Core GPUs and can be easily re-trained by updating just a few layers, saving valuable time.

Build Highly Optimized AI Models with Step-by-Step Instructions

Build Highly Optimized AI Models with Step-by-Step Instructions

NGC offers step-by-step instructions and scripts for creating deep learning models, with sample performance and accuracy metrics to compare against your results. With expert guidance on building deep learning models for image classification, language translation, text-to-speech, and more, data scientists can quickly build performance-optimized models by easily adjusting the hyperparameters.


Automate Deployments with Helm Charts

Helm charts automate software deployment on Kubernetes clusters, allowing users to focus on using—rather than installing—their software.

NGC hosts Kubernetes-ready Helm charts that make it easy to deploy powerful third-party software. NGC also allows DevOps to push and share their Helm charts, so teams can take advantage of consistent, secure, and reliable environments to speed up development-to-production cycles.

With Helm charts, NGC offers NVIDIA GPU Operator, a suite of NVIDIA drivers, container runtime, device plug-in, and management software that IT teams can install on Kubernetes clusters to give users faster access to run their workloads


Deliver Solutions Faster with Ready-to-Deploy AI Workflows

NGC has industry-specific SDKs, including healthcare, autonomous vehicles, robotics, smart cities and more. With features such as TAO Toolkit, developers and data scientists can build an application quickly and seamlessly—such as re-training object detection and image classification models—and then easily deploy with the NVIDIA DeepStream SDK for intelligent video analytics.
