Until now, Korean AI companies have faced significant challenges in acquiring high-performance GPUs, which are essential for developing and training AI models. Now, AI specialists no longer need to wait weeks to acquire large-scale GPUs or utilize resources in other countries but can easily access ultra-highperformance AI computing resources through Gcore's edge cloud.

Gcore's H100-based AI public cloud service, which is the first of its kind in Korea, will provide powerful computing power by organizing servers equipped with eight SMX5-type H100 GPUs into a large-scale cluster. By configuring all connections between GPUs, which have the greatest impact on AI learning performance, with InfiniBand NDR (400Gbps), the bandwidth per server reaches 3.2Tbps. In addition, the non-blocking cluster managed by Unified Fabric Manager (UFM) is configured with hot and cold spares to ensure that the quality of service meets the standards of GDPR, and 2TB of memory and 112 CPU cores for each server provide a large data processing and high-performance computing work environment. The power of 12KW per server, fast network, and secure center design enable the best service implementation.

In preparation for the service, Gcore worked closely with NHN Cloud, a leading cloud company in Korea. From selecting a data center to configuring the service to reflect the needs of Korean customers, NHN Cloud has been instrumental in localizing and customizing Gcore's service, as it understands the special needs of Korean customers as the country's AI industry continues to grow. NHN Cloud will also continue to participate in Gcore's data center operations.

"Korea has tremendous growth potential in AI technologies, including AI semiconductors, systems, and services, and we look forward to helping Korean companies take a leading position in the global AI market by leveraging Gcore's data centers located within the country's high-speed telecommunications network, as well as Gcore's global edge network, which is interconnected with ultra-low latency networks around the world," said HyunYong Jung, Country Manager of Gcore Korea. "Through our continued close collaboration with NHN Cloud, which has specialized understanding and experience of the Korean AI market and customers, we will be able to quickly and efficiently respond to the rapidly growing demand for AI in Korea across various sectors, including public institutions, research centers, finance and manufacturing."

"As the paradigm of the AI infrastructure market in Korea and globally is rapidly changing, NHN Cloud is building the largest GPU cluster in Korea with more than 1,000 NVIDIA H100s in our data centers, including the Gwangju National AI Data Center and Pangyo Data Center (NCC1)," said DongHoon Kim, CEO of NHN Cloud, who also participated in the press conference. "Gcore is a company with strong and secure cloud and edge AI knowledge, based on more than 160 PoPs around the world. By quickly introducing NVIDIA's latest GPU, the H100, to Korea, we are setting the stage for a new phase in the Korean AI market." "Through our partnership with Gcore, NHN Cloud will strengthen the competitiveness of the Korean AI infrastructure market and actively respond to global expansion and market changes."

Gcore provides a cloud platform environment with a fully automated AI infrastructure, various management tools, and a safe and reliable security system to help organizations at every stage of their AI adoption journey.
