SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GTC — NVIDIA today announced its first software and infrastructure-as-a-service offering — NVIDIA Omniverse™ Cloud — a comprehensive suite of cloud services for artists, developers, and enterprise teams to build, publish, operate, and experience metaverse apps anywhere.
With Omniverse Cloud, individuals and teams can experience the one-click ability to design and collaborate on 3D workflows without the need for local computing power. Roboticists can train, simulate, test, and deploy AI-enabled intelligent machines with increased scalability and accessibility. Autonomous vehicle engineers can generate data from physical sensors and simulate traffic scenarios to test a variety of road and weather conditions for safe deployment of autonomous driving.
Early supporters of Omniverse Cloud include RIMAC Group, WPP, and Siemens.
“The Metaverse, the 3D Internet, connects virtual 3D worlds described in USD and visualized through a simulation engine,” said Jensen Huang, Founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “With Omniverse in the cloud, we can connect teams around the world to design, build and operate virtual worlds and digital twins.”
Global Leaders Support Omniverse CloudWPP, the world’s largest marketing services organization, is the first to launch automotive marketing services on the Omniverse Cloud to deliver advanced, personalized 3D content and experiences to leading automotive brands.
“Industry expectations of what great automotive content looks like, regardless of channel, have increased dramatically over the past few years,” said Stephan Pretorius, chief technology officer at WPP. “With Omniverse Cloud, we are changing the way we create, share and consume automotive content – bringing sustainable, low-emissions production to our customers.”
Building on the partnership announced earlier this year, Siemens, a leader in industrial automation hardware and software, is working closely with NVIDIA to leverage the Omniverse Cloud and NVIDIA OVX™ infrastructure to deliver solutions from the Siemens Xcelerator business platform.
“An open ecosystem is a central design principle for the Siemens Xcelerator digital business platform,” said Tony Hemmelgarn, president and CEO of Siemens Digital Industries Software. “We are excited to expand our partnership with NVIDIA, develop integrations between Siemens Xcelerator and Omniverse Cloud, and enable an industry metaverse where enterprises can remotely connect their organizations and operate in real time across the lifecycle. completeness of product and production.”
RIMAC, a pioneer in electric vehicle technologies, uses Omniverse Cloud to provide an end-to-end automotive pipeline, from design to marketing.
“Electric motors are efficient and can be adjusted in an instant. Their flexibility allows engineers to create a car that can handle in ways that a combustion engine car never could,” said Mate Rimac, Founder and CEO of RIMAC. “Omniverse Cloud will provide similar efficiency and flexibility, allowing our engineering teams to focus on designing the car model itself and spending less time on the intricacies of complex 3D design pipelines. And with this 3D car configurator experience, it opens up endless customization possibilities without having to manually render each layer, saving time and money.
In the opening keynote of the GTC, Huang presented an Omniverse Cloud demo with real-time advanced 3D car configurator of RIMAC Nevera, the recently launched electric hypercar from BUGATTI RIMAC, part of RIMAC Group.
Omniverse Cloud services run on Omniverse Cloud Computer, a computing system comprised of NVIDIA OVX™ for graphics and physics simulation, NVIDIA HGX™ for advanced AI workloads, and NVIDIA Graphics Delivery Network (GDN), a network of globally distributed data centers to deliver high-performance, low-latency metaverse graphics at the edge.
Omniverse Cloud services include:
- Omniverse Core Cloud – gives designers and 3D teams the freedom to collaborate and access a shared 3D scene and data based on the Universal Scene Description (USD). Nucleus Cloud allows any designer, maker or developer to save edits, share, perform live edits and view scene edits from almost anywhere.
- Distribution of omniverse applications – allows users without NVIDIA RTX™ GPUs to stream Omniverse reference apps like Omniverse Create, an app for designers and creators to create USD-based virtual worlds, Omniverse View, an app for reviews and approvals, and NVIDIA Isaac Sim, for robot training and testing.
- Omniverse Replicator — enables researchers, developers, and enterprises to generate physically accurate 3D synthetic data and easily create custom synthetic data generation tools to accelerate the training and accuracy of perception networks and easily integrate with NVIDIA cloud services HAVE.
- omniverse farm – allows users and businesses to leverage multiple cloud compute instances to scale Omniverse tasks such as rendering and synthetic data generation.
- NVIDIA Isaac Sim – a scalable robotics simulation application and synthetic data generation tool that powers photorealistic and physically accurate virtual environments to develop, test and manage AI-based robots.
- NVIDIA DRIVE Sim™ – an end-to-end simulation platform to run large-scale, physically accurate multi-sensor simulations to support the development and validation of autonomous vehicles from concept to deployment, improving developer productivity and accelerating time-to-market market.
AvailablityOmniverse Farm, Replicator, and Isaac Sim containers are available today on NVIDIA NGC™ for self-service deployment on AWS using Amazon EC2 G5 instances with NVIDIA A10G Tensor Core GPUs. Additionally, Omniverse Cloud will be available as NVIDIA Managed Services through per-app early access.
