Schneider Electric is partnering with Nvidia to introduce AI data center reference designs.

Announced this week, the company says the designs will be the 'first of their kind' to be publicly available and will provide solutions to ‘evolving demands of AI workloads’ by offering frameworks to implement Nvidia’s computing platform within data centers.

Schneider says focus will be placed on high-power distribution, liquid-cooling systems, and controls to ensure reliable operations.

Partners will have the option to use these designs for existing data center rooms to support high-density AI servers in addition to new data center builds.

Schneider’s secure power division and data center business SVP, Pankaj Sharma, said: “By combining our expertise in data center solutions with Nvidia’s leadership in AI technologies, we’re helping organizations to overcome data center infrastructure limitations and unlock the future potential of AI.”

Ian Buck, VP of hyperscale and HPC at Nvidia, added: “This provides organizations with the necessary infrastructure to tap into the potential of AI, driving innovation and digital transformation across industries.”

A subsidiary of Schneider, Aveva, is also set to integrate its digital twin platform into Nvidia Omniverse. The companies say this will enable seamless collaboration and reduce time-to-market and costs.

Caspar Herzberg, the CEO of Aveva, said: “Nvidia technologies enhance Aveva’s capabilities in creating a realistic and immersive collaboration experience underpinned by the rich data and capabilities of the Aveva intelligent digital twin.”

Earlier this week, Cadence integrated its digital twin platform into Nvidia’s Omniverse.

Nvidia has just announced its latest Blackwell line of GPUs and plans to offer access to them later this year.
