The announcement of the introduction of the Omniverse Cloud Service came with a revelation of the first clients that have adopted the new product.
American multinational technology company NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) has announced the launch of its Omniverse Cloud Service as it looks to support metaverse-related engagement for industrial purposes.
As unveiled by the company, the NVIDIA Omniverse Cloud is designed as software and an Infrastructure-as-a-Service Offering (IaaS) that will provide a comprehensive suite of cloud services for artists, developers, and enterprise teams to design, publish, operate and experience metaverse applications anywhere.
The new product suite lets anyone create metaverse-related applications in an easy manner. The product suite also comes with unique flexibility and helps creative teams expend less time and effort in their design efforts.
“The metaverse, the 3D internet, connects virtual 3D worlds described in USD and viewed through a simulation engine,” said Jensen Huang, founder, and CEO of NVIDIA. “With Omniverse in the cloud, we can connect teams worldwide to design, build, and operate virtual worlds and digital twins.”
The metaverse is a relatively new concept, and many companies in different industries are looking for the best ways to create new experiences for their customers. Firms are also looking for avenues to deploy metaverse solutions that can help streamline their manufacturing processes.
NVIDIA has identified these needs and its Omniverse solutions are targeted at bridging this gap. According to the company, “the Omniverse Cloud services run on the Omniverse Cloud Computer, a computing system comprised of NVIDIA OVX™ for graphics and physics simulation, NVIDIA HGX™ for advanced AI workloads, and the NVIDIA Graphics Delivery Network (GDN), a global-scale distributed data center network for delivering high-performance, low-latency metaverse graphics at the edge.”
The Omniverse Cloud Service is currently available on NVIDIA NGC™ for self-service deployment on AWS using Amazon EC2 G5 instances featuring NVIDIA A10G Tensor Core GPUs. The company said the product can also be accessed through the early application.
NVIDIA Omniverse Cloud Service: Pioneering Clients
The announcement of the introduction of the Omniverse Cloud Service came with a revelation of the first clients that have adopted the new product. These include WPP PLC (NYSE: WPP), the world’s largest marketing services organization, Siemens AG (ETR: SIE), a leader in industrial automation hardware and software, and RIMAC, a pioneer in electric vehicle technologies.
With a very divergent service offering, each of these early adopters has their own customized use case for the Omniverse Cloud Service. This further showcases how the product can fit into a diverse industry at the same time.
“An open ecosystem is a central design principle for the Siemens Xcelerator digital business platform,” said Tony Hemmelgarn, president, and CEO of Siemens Digital Industries Software. “We are excited to expand our partnership with NVIDIA, develop integrations between Siemens Xcelerator and Omniverse Cloud, and enable an industrial metaverse where companies can remotely connect their organizations and operate in real-time across the complete product and production lifecycle.”
