Northern Data Group has purchased NVIDIA H200 GPUs through a new partnership with Supermicro, becoming the first company in Europe to deploy the units.

Northern Data’s cloud platform, Taiga Cloud, will integrate the GPUs and is scheduled to deploy services in the final quarter of 2024. According to Northern Data Group, Taiga Cloud will be the first cloud service provider in Europe to offer access to the H200 GPU hardware.

The first full island of over 2,000 NVIDIA H200 GPUs will utilise BlueField-3 data processing units (DPUs) and NVIDIA Mellanox CX7 NICs, to deliver 32 petaFLOPS of capacity.

The GPUs will be hosted in one of Northern Data Group’s European data centres, which operate on carbon-free, renewable energy.

Aroosh Thillainathan, Founder and CEO of Northern Data Group, said, “Our GenAI platform is constantly evolving and we are proud to collaborate with Supermicro to be the first in Europe to offer access to NVIDIA H200 GPUs. This is testament to our commitment to continually offer industry-leading, next-generation solutions.

“As an Elite Partner of NVIDIA, we are proud to continue to offer cutting-edge technology, deployed in line with recommended architecture references to maximize the technology,” he added.

Vik Malyala, President & Managing Director, EMEA; SVP, Technology & AI at Supermicro, also commented, “We are excited to collaborate with Northern Data Group to expand its GenAI Cloud offering to include Supermicro GPU servers based on the latest Nvidia H200 HGX GPUs. Supermicro is fully committed to delivering the most performant and energy-efficient AI infrastructure and solutions, and this collaboration will accelerate availability and bring the best value for customers in Europe.”
