South Korean cloud provider NHN Cloud has selected Dell Technologies to provide the infrastructure for its new ArtificiaI Intelligence (AI) and High-Performance Computing (HPC) facility, Dell notified via a statement.

The Gwangju AI data centre will provide the compute needed for NHN Cloud customers running AI and HPC projects. The Dell-powered infrastructure will also run national AI research and development AI research and development projects in South Korea through an agreement with Gwangju Metropolitan City, South Korea and South Korea’s AI industry cluster agency, the statement said.

“Reliable infrastructure is key for making AI work. We are seeing substantial demand from the public and private sectors for computing resources to support AI. With industry-leading cloud services and powerful infrastructure solutions from Dell Technologies, we’re able to deliver a robust platform to our customers researching and using AI,” said Donghoon Kim, Chief Executive Officer, NHN Cloud, in the statement.

NHN Cloud’s new data centre will use Dell PowerEdge XE9680 servers, each equipped with eight NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs and offering lower operating costs for NHN Cloud along with a more efficient environmental footprint. Based on average Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) ratings among South Korean data centres, the new facility will be more energy-efficient than average data centres in the country. The data centre will also be the first NVIDIA H100 GPU-based data centre designed specifically for AI and HPC workloads in South Korea.

“AI is becoming one of the most important tools for organisations of all types and sizes. Through our collaboration, we will continue to help public and private organisations unlock the power of AI,” said Kevin Kim, Senior Vice President (VP) and Managing Director (MD), Dell Technologies, Korea, in the statement.

The cloud service provider will use Dell ProSupport for infrastructure services to get the maximum uptime from its new PowerEdge XE9680 servers. ProSupport offers a combination of IT expertise, pro-active issue detection with automated case creation and insights through AIOps tools, including CloudIQ, which proactively monitors the health of Dell IT infrastructure using Machine Learning (ML), to support new servers.
