NetApp’s AI Centre of Excellence in partnership with NVIDIA, at Bengaluru, will help create an environment to showcase technologies to help customers and partners navigate the world of AI thereby helping them drive businesses of today and enterprises of tomorrow. A year ago, NVIDIA and NetApp announced their collaboration to work together on an “AI-proven architecture.” Powered by NVIDIA’s DGX supercomputers and NetApp’s cloud-connected flash storage, both resolved to streamline organizational collaboration by bridging data and the cloud.

The CoE will notably involve an investment by NetApp in the NVIDIA DGX workstation to provide customers and partners a better understanding of the role of AI and to deploy it to their advantage in a competitive environment. It will also enable them to experience firsthand the solutions and work with the skilled engineers from both NetApp and NVIDIA.

NetApp will also showcase the impact AI had on global customers as a result of the collaboration and will highlight how it has enabled companies to navigate the complex AI journey by unleashing the full potential of data by simplifying and accelerating the edge to core to cloud data pipeline. The customers can thereby accelerate AI implementation and scale with pre-validated architecture.



The company has announced its boldest portfolio launch. NetApp is delivering a host of new capabilities that can help companies bring their data fabric to life. The new solutions and services allow customers to adopt and consume cloud on their terms. The company is thereby delivering a truly seamless hybrid multicloud experience that includes availability of NetApp® Cloud Data Services on NetApp HCI, the ability to expand with persistent storage across the biggest public clouds, and the ability for customers to manage, use, and pay for cloud services the way they want to.

The public cloud has created a new standard for IT that all industry leaders must match to provide the experience that users enjoy in the cloud and now demand on their premises. To be successful, organizations must fuel data-driven innovation by leveraging the cloud and modernizing their IT, bringing the power of the cloud to every part of their business through a seamless hybrid multicloud. Only NetApp, with its data fabric strategy, has what customers need to build a unique data fabric designed for their business—in any cloud, in one experience.

With NetApp, a company can now enable developers to build applications on-premises as easily as in the public cloud. They can make the apps and data portable across a hybrid multicloud regardless of location, without compromising service levels and centrally orchestrate application and data services together across a hybrid multicloud.



as a company is committed to contributing to the external ecosystem and supporting the vision to make India an innovation hub for the world. A corporate citizen of India since 2003, NetApp India announced in 2017, its Global Centre of Excellence (GCoE) which is a fully owned 15-acre multi-business unit/functional campus in Bangalore.
