NVIDIA NIM, part of NVIDIA AI Enterprise, is a set of easy-to-use microservices designed to accelerate deployment of generative AI across cloud, data center, and workstations.

Benefits of self-hosted NIMs:

  • Deploy anywhere and maintain control of generative AI applications and data
  • Streamline AI application development with industry standard APIs and tools tailored for enterprise environments
  • Prebuilt containers for the latest generative AI models, offering a diverse range of options and flexibility right out of the gate
  • Industry-leading latency and throughput for cost-effective scaling
  • Support for custom models out of the box so models can be trained on domain specific data
  • Enterprise-grade software with dedicated feature branches, rigorous validation processes, and robust support structures

What is Stable Diffusion XL NIM

The Stable Diffusion XL NIM is a container that allows you to run Stability.AI’s Stable Diffusion XL model - one of the most popular visual generative AI models in the world - in the most optimal manner.

Note that the container does not contain the model. The developer must source the license for the model directly from Stability.AI’s webpage and download the TRT-optimized model from HuggingFace.

The NIM has all the instructions and tools needed to bring in the model and generate the required TensorRT engines to run the model in an optimized manner for your target NVIDIA GPUs.

You can try the Stable Diffusion XL NIM on, either on the website or through the demo API.
