VMware makes software that corporations use to run their privately owned data centres. For more than two decades rather than all this cloudy stuff.
The new tools manage Nvidia chips and mimic what the likes of Microsoft are doing on AI on the cloud. Microsoft for example, is offering cloud-based systems that can read through a business team's emails and chats and help generate a short update on a team's progress.
Raghu Raghuram, VMware's chief executive, told Reuters businesses are interested in the technology for everything from helping software developers write code faster to writing legal contracts more quickly. But some VMware customers want to work in their data centres when the data is sensitive.
"Imagine a common use case: I want it to read all my legal contracts so I can generate new contracts faster. Obviously, that is going to be super, super secretive - you don't want that data escaping anywhere," Raghuram said.
VMware said the new tools will be available next year. The company declined to say how it will be priced other than saying that the cost will be based on how many Nvidia chips the customer uses the software to manage.
