New green energy-powered AI data cluster with NVIDIA DGX supercomputing coming to Iceland

Opera's AI cluster in Iceland within the top 100 most powerful supercomputers in the world

Today we’re excited to announce plans to deploy a new AI cluster in Keflavik, Iceland. Powered entirely by green energy, the system will support the growth of our browsers and form the base of future AI services. The AI data cluster will feature an NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD, and begin operations in February 2024.

We’ve been innovating in the browser AI space since early 2023, putting AI at the center of our product development. All of our flagship browsers already boast native AI features, including Aria Browser AI. We believe AI will soon take on a role beyond that of a chatbot and help you, the user, to perform more elaborate browser tasks – requiring more AI computing power. The data cluster in Iceland will allow us to deliver new custom capabilities for our users, in addition to those built on top of solutions provided by our AI partners.

Our AI cluster is designed to have the smallest possible impact on the environment. Located in Iceland, it relies on hydroelectric and geothermal power for energy and fresh Icelandic air for cooling. The new cluster is an NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD, equipped with the newest NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs and the NVIDIA AI Enterprise software platform, which streamlines the development and deployment of production-grade AI applications. The full-stack system will work as a single AI cluster serving our AI workloads. The state-of-the-art NVIDIA H100 GPUs allow for four times faster AI training and 30 times faster inference on large language models compared to the previous generation of the GPU. 

NVIDIA technical solutions will provide us with advanced AI supercomputing capabilities, and enable our developers to create exciting new features that will bring generative AI experiences right to your fingertips!
