  • VMware showcased new privacy-focused AI offerings to let users run AI with integrated security to keep enterprise data safe.

VMware wants to power secure generative AI offerings for enterprises, using its annual Explore event to showcase new privacy-focused solutions.

The company unveiled Private AI, a series of solutions and services designed to enable companies deploying AI to have control over their corporate data.

It allows users to run their choice of AI solutions, either open source or from independent vendors – with VMware saying that integrated security will keep enterprise data safe.

Among the use cases Private AI solutions will power include code generation, contact center experiences and IT automation.

Teams up with Nvidia, Lenovo on generative AI

VMware, which already partners with several AI vendors and MLOps providers including HPE, Dell, Anyscale and Run:ai, announced a new tie-up. The company is working with Nvidia to run the company’s AI solutions on its cloud platform.

VMware Private AI Foundation with Nvidia will include access to solutions such as NeMo so enterprises can build, customize and deploy generative AI models and applications like chatbots.

VMware has been working with Nvidia for around a decade – the companies have expanded their partnership to serve mutual customers. VMware CEO Raghu Raghuram said the expansion of the pair’s work will “empower enterprises to run their generative AI workloads adjacent to their data with confidence while addressing their corporate data privacy, security and control concerns.”

VMware Private AI Foundation with Nvidia will be released in early 2024.

VMware also expanded its partnership with Lenovo, with the pair announcing new solutions for deploying and customizing generative AI.

Among the new offerings are the Lenovo ThinkSystem SR675 V3 and ThinkSystem SR670 V2 – purpose-built servers for AI workloads. The new servers can power VMware customers' AI and machine learning solutions.
