VMware, Inc. has announced a collaboration with Intel to accelerate the adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and enable private AI across data centers, public clouds, and edge environments. This partnership aims to deliver a jointly validated AI stack that allows customers to leverage their existing VMware and Intel infrastructure, as well as open-source software, to simplify the process of building and deploying AI models.

According to Chris Wolf, Vice President of VMware AI Labs, “When it comes to AI, there is no longer any reason to debate trade-offs between choice, privacy, and control. Private AI empowers customers with all three, enabling them to accelerate AI adoption while future-proofing their AI infrastructure.” This means that customers can benefit from the advantages of AI without compromising on privacy or control over their data.

Sandra Rivera, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Data Center and AI Group at Intel adds, “With the potential of artificial intelligence to unlock powerful new possibilities and improve the life of every person on the planet, Intel and VMware are well equipped to lead enterprises into this new era of AI powered by silicon and software.”

The collaboration will focus on VMware Private AI, which brings compute capacity and AI models to public clouds, enterprise data centers, or edge environments. This allows for traditional AI/ML workloads as well as generative AI applications. With this approach, various use cases such as AI-assisted code generation, experiential customer service centers recommendation systems, and classical machine statistical analytics can be co-located on the same general-purpose servers that run the application.

To support customers in building and deploying private AI models on existing infrastructure, a reference architecture has been designed that combines Intel’s AI software suite with Intel Xeon processors and Data Center GPUs with VMware Cloud Foundation.

This collaboration between VMware and Intel provides businesses with the tools they need to embrace artificial intelligence across different environments while maintaining control over their data. By leveraging existing infrastructure and open-source software, organizations can accelerate their AI adoption and unlock the potential of this transformative technology.
