Focusing on the what, why and how, Harvard shared the drive behind the development of what has become an innovative cloud solution.
Building Europe's Largest Gen AI Cloud with Karl Havard, Managing Director at Taiga Cloud
Emphasising the challenges and considerations involved in deploying generative AI, which demands substantial computing power, Harvard’s presentation covered various aspects of the large-scale project, starting with the vision of becoming the first and largest generative AI cloud service provider in Europe, followed by its commitment to clean energy and continual innovation.
Ensuring this major project also has sustainability at its core, Harvard explained how NVIDIA technology has been implemented in Taiga data centres to to configure high degrees of efficiency for the dual benefits of Taiga and its clients.
“Our aim is to be this engine that helps organisations to be able to have access, do what they need to do and move on. We know the conveyor belt of demand is large. We want to offer the access, hence the need to come up with a more accessible way of offering this to the marketplace.” As an ambitious project, challenges have been overcome and continue to crop up, with Havard stressing how the importance of partnerships with organisations that share the same values and visions, as well as having a dedicated and talented engineering team, ensure the project’s overall and ongoing success in what is a fiercely competitive market.
Harvard also provided a comprehensive overview of the strategic, operational and ethical considerations in building and managing a large-scale generative AI cloud infrastructure across the continent, including details of the strategic locations of their data centres in Sweden and Norway, the use of hydro power and the pursuit of clean energy efficiency.
