Nvidia Launches Omniverse Cloud for Industrial Metaverse Applications
At the GTC keynote on Tuesday, Nvidia launched Omniverse Cloud, an infrastructure-as-a-service that allows anyone to run metaverse applications wherever they are.
Creators and designers can now experience Nvidia Omniverse in the cloud
Tech giant Nvidia has launched Nvidia Omniverse Cloud, an infrastructure-as-a-service that connects all Omniverse applications running in the cloud, on-premises, and on edge devices. The tool will allow users to design, publish, and run metaverse applications wherever they are.
At a GTC keynote this week, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang revealed that the premier cloud service is now available in 100 countries. With more than 700 companies and 200,000 people using Omniverse, the platform is set to be a convenient solution for businesses worldwide.
"The metaverse, the 3D internet, connects virtual 3D worlds described in USD (universal scene description) and viewed through a simulation engine," said Jensen Huang. "With Omniverse in the cloud, we can connect teams worldwide to design, build, and operate virtual worlds and digital twins."
Using Nvidia Omniverse Cloud for industrial metaverse applications
Metaverses today are mainly built for gaming and entertainment purposes. But Omniverse Cloud is more than that. According to Nvidia, the industrial metaverse is a virtual program that leverages augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) to facilitate the remote monitoring and assessment of projects.
Using Omniverse Cloud, roboticists will be able to train, simulate, test, and deploy AI-enabled intelligent machines with increased scalability and accessibility. Besides, autonomous vehicle engineers can generate data and simulate various traffic scenarios for safe self-driving deployment.
WPP, Siemens, and RIMAC Group are the three early clients of Omniverse Cloud. As the world's largest marketing services organization, WPP is the first to launch automotive marketing services on the platform, delivering advanced 3D content and experiences to automotive brands.
Siemens, a leader in industrial automation, is leveraging Omniverse Cloud to deliver solutions from the Siemens Xcelerator platform. Whereas RIMAC, a pioneer in electric vehicle technologies, is using the tool to provide an end-to-end automotive pipeline.
Some of the services in Omniverse Cloud, such as Omniverse Farm, Replicator, and Isaac Sim, are now available on Nvidia NCG for self-deployment on AWS. If required, the platform is also available as Nvidia-managed services via early applications.
