Nvidia is partnering with infrastructure firm Kyndryl to help customers accelerate generative AI deployments.

Kyndryl’s open integration platform, Kyndryl Bridge, will be optimized for customers running Nvidia’s computing and software solutions.

The collaboration will see Kyndryl use Nvidia’s AI software solutions like its NeMo platform for building custom generative AI applications to support use cases like customer support, IT operations automation and real-time analytics.

Nvidia’s Nim software will be incorporated into Kyndryl Bridge to speed up deployments. Nim is designed to help users optimize AI model inference. Bridge’s Nim integration is intended to help AIOps workloads to be optimized for Nvidia GPUs, enabling engineers to process workloads like hardware failure predictions faster.

“We’re excited to be working with Nvidia to provide the building blocks and know-how customers need to fully unleash the potential of generative AI throughout their businesses,” said Hidayatullah Shaikh, Kyndryl Bridge’s vice president for software engineering. “By combining Nvidia’s generative AI software with Kyndryl’s capabilities, we’re uniquely prepared to help address and resolve the biggest pain points for customers seeking to integrate AI across their hybrid IT estates.”

Kyndryl was spun out of IBM in November 2021. The company focuses on providing IT infrastructure services.

The company said it’s looking to offer its Kyndryl Bridge platform now with Nvidia AI software integrations to businesses in industries including retail, telecoms and health care.

Its consulting arm will help customers use the Nvidia solutions either on-premises, in the cloud or in a multicloud environment.

In a statement, the companies said customers will benefit from enhanced efficiency and adoption speeds through the new integrations.

“As generative AI can scale productivity and insight for companies across industries, many organizations are seeking experts to help them quickly integrate AI applications into their operations,” said John Fanelli, Nvidia’s vice president of enterprise software. “Kyndryl’s solutions and expertise in integrating full-stack Nvidia AI can help customers rapidly establish and scale their AI strategies.”
