Gcore, an international cloud and edge solutions provider, has opened an AI Cloud cluster in Newport, Wales.

Built with Graphcore’s innovative IPUs, it provides even the smallest companies with access to enterprise-scale IT resources, democratising opportunities for AI development across the UK and Europe.

The opening of the new cluster in Newport marks the third point of presence (PoP) for Gcore’s AI Cloud, which already has sites in the Netherlands and Luxembourg. The location was a strategic decision based on three key factors: the UK government’s commitment to advancing and integrating AI technologies; the high internet penetration rates in the UK, and the country’s position as one of the largest digital economies in the world.

Seva Vayner, director of edge cloud stream at Gcore, said: “The opening of Gcore’s AI Cloud cluster in Newport, in partnership with Graphcore, is an important step towards building one of the first European AI infrastructure. This move will enable businesses of all sizes to integrate innovations and easily access cutting-edge AI technology.

This new cluster represents an essential milestone for businesses looking to integrate AI innovations quickly and conveniently.
