Additionally, Oracle is now offering early access to NVIDIA RAPIDS acceleration for Apache Spark data processing on the fully managed OCI Data Flow Apache Spark service. Data processing is one of the main workloads of cloud computing. To meet this demand, OCI Data Science plans to offer support for OCI bare metal forms, including BM.GPU.GM4.8 with NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs, across managed laptop sessions, tasks and model deployment.

NVIDIA Clara™, a healthcare AI and HPC application framework for medical imaging, genomics, natural language processing, and drug discovery, will also be available soon. Oracle and NVIDIA are also collaborating on new AI-accelerated Oracle Cerner offerings for healthcare, which span analytics, clinical solutions, operations, patient management systems and more.
