Northern Data first European cloud services firm to get new Nvidia GPUs

Northern Data Group and its Taiga business unit says it will be the first cloud service provider in Europe to offer access to the powerful H200 GPU hardware from Nvidia, with delivery and deployment scheduled for Q4 2024.

The partnership with Supermicro will further build up Northern Data Group’s high-performance computing solutions and complement its existing offering of GenAI technologies.

The first full island of over 2,000 Nvidia H200 GPUs, utilising BlueField-3 data processing units (DPUs) and Nvidia Mellanox CX7 NICs, will deliver 32 petaflops of performance. The configuration of Nvidia-referenced architecture will allow customers to access more bandwidth, and faster and more efficient data storage access, said the provider.

The H200 GPUs will be housed in one of Northern Data Group's European data centres, powered by carbon-free, renewable energy, and will boast a power usage effectiveness ratio of less than 1.2.

Aroosh Thillainathan, founder and CEO, Northern Data Group, said: “Our GenAI platform is constantly evolving and we are proud to collaborate with Supermicro to be the first in Europe to offer access to Nvidia H200 GPUs. This is testament to our commitment to continually offer industry-leading, next-generation solutions.

"As an Elite Partner of Nvidia, we are continuing to offer cutting-edge technology, deployed in line with recommended architecture references to maximise the technology."

Northern Data Group is made up the Taiga Cloud, Ardent Data Centers, and Peak Mining business units.
