Oracle, Microsoft, OpenAI sign new partnership

Oracle, Microsoft and OpenAI have announced a new partnership to support the growth of OpenAI, the platform behind popular generative AI tool ChatGPT.

Under the joint agreement, the partners will collaborate to extend the Microsoft Azure Al platform to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) to provide additional capacity for OpenAI.

OCI is already being used to run a range of AI workloads, including those from AI companies Adept, Modal, MosaicML, NVIDIA, Reka, Suno, Together AI, Twelve Labs and xAI.

The platform’s purpose-built AI capabilities enable startups and enterprises to build and train models quickly and reliably. For training large language models, one OCI Supercluster can scale up to 64K NVIDIA Blackwell GPUs or GB200 Grace Blackwell Superchips.

Oracle chairman and CTO Larry Ellison said the agreement could be a game changer for the budding AI sector.

“The race to build the world’s greatest large language model is on, and it is fuelling unlimited demand for Oracle’s Gen2 AI infrastructure,” he said. “Leaders like OpenAI are choosing OCI because it is the world’s fastest and most cost-effective AI infrastructure.”

OpenAI CTO Sam Altman meanwhile welcomed the collaboration.

“OCI will extend Azure’s platform and enable OpenAI to continue to scale,” he said.
