Software King of the World Microsoft is expanding its Azure Stack Edge with Nvidia preview.

For those who came in late, this preview was first announced at the Mobile World Congress 2019 as part of a closer integration between Azure and the NVIDIA EGX platform.

Writing in the company bog,  Vole says Nvidia T4 Tensor Core GPU is used by the Azure Stack Edge in order to bring a hardware boost to machine learning (ML) workloads.

In the blog, Vole states that since its introduction, it has observed a largely positive reception to the idea, with a variety of industries looking to take advantage of the improved Azure ML capabilities.

As such, "key improvements" have been made over the past few months to the preview, and it is now in a position to be made available to further customers.

Vole said it was giving Nvidia more cash to develop business applications - or particularly, those which are leveraging the power of the Azure Stack Edge. These include Malong Technologies' AI applications, and Mariner's Spyglass Visual Inspection.

The firm has also reiterated its upcoming plans for the edge-computing device, including the Rugged Series arriving later this year. New AI capabilities including virtual machines, Kubernetes clusters, and multi-node support that were announced at Ignite last year have also been mentioned.
