The Tata Group has unveiled a strategic partnership with tech giant NVIDIA to build a high-performance AI computing environment. This collaboration seeks to democratise access to advanced AI capabilities for businesses, startups and AI researchers across India.
What Happened: On Thursday, the Tata Group and NVIDIA announced their collaboration aimed at developing AI solutions and offering a substantial AI computing infrastructure. The partnership involves the construction of an AI supercomputer, leveraging NVIDIA’s next-generation GH200 Grace Hopper Superchip, to deliver superior performance.
NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang expressed his excitement about the partnership, stating, “We are delighted to partner with Tata as they expand their cloud infrastructure service with NVIDIA AI supercomputing to support the exponential demand of generative AI startups and processing of large language models.”
The partnership also involves the creation of an AI cloud in India by Tata Communications and NVIDIA. This AI cloud, bolstered by Tata Communications’ robust global network, will enable high-speed data transfer and bring the AI cloud to every enterprise’s doorstep.
Additionally, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) will utilise this AI infrastructure to develop and process generative AI applications. This move will further enable TCS to assist its customers in driving reimagination with an AI-first approach.

N. Chandrasekaran, chairman of Tata Sons, commented on the collaboration, stating, “Our partnership with NVIDIA will democratise access to AI infrastructure, accelerate the build-out of AI solutions and enable the upgradation of AI talent at scale.”
Why It Matters: This partnership comes on the heels of NVIDIA’s collaboration with Reliance Industries. The earlier partnership aimed at advancing AI capabilities specific to India, including the development of a foundational large language model to cater to the diverse Indian population.
NVIDIA’s partnership with two of India’s biggest corporate houses comes just days after Huang’s India visit. During the visit, Huang expressed his admiration for India and talked a lot about India’s AI potential.
