Graphcore partner Gcore is announcing the availability of Intelligence Processing Units (IPUs) as part of its AI cloud compute service in the United States. 

US-based users have been taking advantage of IPUs via Gcore’s international datacenters for some time. The addition of IPUs physically located in Manassas, Virginia enables Gcore to deliver state-of-the-art AI compute to customers who need to retain their data within the United States for regulatory and other reasons. 

Supporting the principle of data sovereignty is central to Gcore’s IPU cloud offering, allowing public sector organisations, governments, financial institutions and those working with sensitive user data to operate in compliance with current and emerging rules around AI, whether in Europe, the UK, or the US.
