Last week our team went to NVIDIA GTC in San Jose, California! We’ve been to plenty of conferences in the past but this one is right up there at being one of the best shows we’ve ever attended. Several of us on the team have been in the infrastructure industry for decades and seeing the demand, first-hand, for GPU servers reminded us of the early days in the web hosting space when there was such rapid growth.


The Shift from Traditional Compute to Graphical Compute

What we learned at NVIDIA GTC was that GPUs aren’t going to eliminate the traditional CPU, they’re here to work together on extremely heavy computing needs. Many years ago, GPUs were confined to the ream of gaming. Today, these powerful processors are the backbone of cutting-edge applications across various sectors. From accelerating AI, large language models, and machine learning algorithms to enhancing data analytics and fueling the capabilities of virtual and augmented reality. GPUs are driving innovation at an unprecedented pace.


The Big Announcement: The NVIDIA Blackwell Platform

NVIDIA announced their new Blackwell platform which will enable companies to build and run real-time generative AI on trillion-parameter large language models at up to 25x less cost and energy consumption than it’s predecessor. This architecture features six transformative technologies for accelerated computing, which will help unlock breakthroughs in data processing, engineering simulation, electronic design automation, and generative AI.


The Capacity Problem – Hardware and Infrastructure

Another key takeaway we learned is how scarce large amounts of power and space are available at datacenters today for companies who want to train their large language models. The other scarcity facing companies currently is the hardware needed to run these LLMs and AI applications, particularly the availability of NVIDIA H100 GPUs.

However, there are multiple factors that play into our advantage at, we have the datacenter capacity and the ability to source NVIDIA H100 GPUs for our bare metal server customers. Lastly, with the NVIDIA Blackwell platform hitting the market in a couple of months, we anticipate being able to source NVIDIA H100 GPUs even faster.


NVIDIA GTC: A Catalyst for Innovation

In conclusion, our experience at NVIDIA GTC was enlightening, to say the least. It was a journey through the potential of GPUs and AI, a glimpse into the future of technology, and a reminder of the role innovation plays in driving humanity forward.
