In regards to the Collaboration

1. Subsequent-generation industrial simulation and optimization

Hitachi has crafted a daring imaginative and prescient for tasks that will run previous the outdated. Namely, by the use of NVIDIA Omniverse, a platform for connecting and growing OpenUSD capabilities, and NVIDIA Modulus, a framework forbuilding, practicing, and gorgeous-tuning physics- machine studying units, Hitachi can build simulate and optimize diversified resources and processes for mission-severe fields akin to vitality and transportation in a digital twin atmosphere. The consequences can then be mirrored within the accurate world, taking into account the collaborative vogue of astronomical-scale alternate choices that might well, as an illustration, urge the transition to green vitality, enable original innovations in healthcare,or improve the protection of transportation programs, while validating and bettering their effectiveness.

2. Hitachi industrial AI alternate choices on NVIDIA AI Endeavor

Hitachi Lumada’s AI resolution library, for which Hitachi has built a song listing of label introduction in diversified industries, might even be integrated with the NVIDIA AI Endeavor and Modulus platforms. Leveraging Hitachi’s fill and digitalengineering capabilities, these alternate choices will enable possibilities in diversified industries, including transportation, vitality,industrial, and finance, to urge innovation, improve their offerings, and originate a original differ of brilliant, AI- centric alternate choices.

3. Enhance of a original portfolio of AI alternate choices “Hitachi iQ”

Enabled by the collaboration, Hitachi Vantara will open the predominant offering below the Hitachi iQ portfolio. The original offering will undergo NVIDIA DGX BasePOD(6) certification, offering possibilities with a truly certified, integrated resolution, built on NVIDIA DGX(7) infrastructure and extremely legitimate storage. Provided through extra than one consumption units, Hitachi Vantara will present possibilities with mechanisms to delight in neutral correct what they need, all while offering improved on-premises efficiency and taking into account a wiser ROI from their AI-enabled storage and records infrastructure. Hitachi iQ might even open a excessive-pause NVIDIA HGX offering — powered by NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs — and aset of midrange PCIe basically based offerings, consisting of NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core and L40S GPUs(8). As a complement tothese products, Hitachi Vantara might even offer NVIDIA AI Endeavor, a intention platform comprising accomplishing- grade AI tools and frameworks. Lastly, Hitachi Vantara will offer a original Skills 5-basically based accelerated storage node the use of the Hitachi Notify material Application for File storage abilities, that will enable it to lift extremely fleet storage solutionsfor complex AI workloads. Hitachi Vantara’s iQ portfolio is anticipated to be on the full available within the predominant quarter ofHitachi’s fiscal Three hundred and sixty five days 2024.

Thru this collaboration, Hitachi will drive forward in its daring ambition to originate enormous impact globally and make contributions to the belief of a sustainable society.
