Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) Brings Supercomputing-as-a-Service to Life

Story Highlights

Nvidia gains substantially thanks to new partnership arrangements that should mean new lines of business.

The term “as-a-service” has been added to a lot of technological concepts. Software, desktop functions, disaster recovery, infrastructure, and more—even artificial intelligence itself—have all landed the as-a-service treatment. Now, chip maker Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA), backed up by Equinix (NASDAQ:EQIX), has stepped things up to launch a completely cloud-based AI supercomputer system available on an as-a-service basis. The move struck a chord with investors, sending Nvidia shares up over 3% in Wednesday morning’s trading.

Now available, the service gives users access to AI supercomputing systems on a subscription basis instead of building and managing their own systems. With the Nvidia service, users can build and run their own AI models. Users get access to a range of levels of service that allow the closest tailoring to their own needs. It’s built around Nvidia’s DGX systems, as well as networking and the AI Enterprise platform. Meanwhile, Equinix handles the infrastructure side of things and will also deploy the services to its own data centers.

A Good Time for an Expansion Phase

This is a great time for Nvidia to start stepping things up. It recently lost the title of Top Pick at Morgan Stanley to Western Digital (NASDAQ:WDC), and that should prompt a new push for gains. Indeed, Nvidia is bringing in a lot of extra firepower, having recently inked deals with Recursion (NASDAQ:RXRX) and Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) to step up operations in the life sciences field. Nvidia will be bringing its AI tools to these fronts, which should only make it more valuable down the line.
