  • Red Hat's OpenShift platform will now support Nvidia's accelerators and Aerial SDK.
  • Aerial SDK support provides clients with improved infrastructure capabilities for compute-heavy applications.

Red Hat has teamed up with Nvidia to work on solutions to power AI and radio access network (RAN) solutions in hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

Announced at Mobile World Congress 2023, the partnership includes Red Hat’s OpenShift platform now providing support for Nvidia accelerators, as well as the Nvidia Aerial SDK to power 5G virtual radio access networks and AI enterprise AI applications.

Aerial is an application framework for building high-performance, software-defined, cloud-native 5G RAN applications at scale.

Allowing support for the Aerial SDK on OpenShift will provide customers with improved infrastructure capabilities for compute-heavy applications like edge computing, private 5G and AI, the pair claim.

Reducing costs

Red Hat and Nvidia contend that the new offering reduces ownership costs from deployments and provides for a composable infrastructure, which mitigates the need for specialized hardware.

“It’s imperative that service providers adopt a cloud-native infrastructure to meet the growing computing demands of 5G and edge computing,” said Ronnie Vashita, telecom senior vice president at Nvidia.

“From AI and ML to edge computing and advanced software-defined architecture, emerging technologies are fueling the continued evolution of 5G,” said Honoré LaBourdette, telco, media and edge vice president at Red Hat. “As a result, modern networks require a robust and collaborative ecosystem to deliver leading capabilities today while accelerating business transformation for future success.”
