Nvidia said it has acquired Run.ai, a startup focused on GPU workload management and orchestration.

Run.ai's platform is Kubernetes-based and will help Nvidia customers distribute workloads across cloud, edge and data center infrastructure.

Terms of the deal weren't disclosed, but CTech put the purchase at about $700 million.

Nvidia said Run.ai's open platform will serve as an orchestration layer for GPU clusters. AI deployments will need the ability to orchestrate and optimize generative AI training and inference for speed and cost.

Run.ai's platform provides a centralized interface to manage compute infrastructure, access to cluster resources and the ability to pool resources.

According to Nvidia, Run.ai's products will keep their current business model for the immediate future. Run.ai's product roadmap will be integrated into Nvidia DGX Cloud. Nvidia DGX and DGX Cloud customers will get access to Run.ai for AI workloads and large language model deployments.

Run.ai is already integrated with much of Nvidia's software including Nvidia AI Enterprise and DGX.
