NVIDIA GPGPU, Now in Amazon’s EC2
"GPU supercomputing, through AWS, gives users a flexible computing facility that allows them to scale their computing needs based on user demand." ---Andy Keane, NVIDIA's Leader of GPGPU Computing
NVIDIA is continuously pushing itself to the world of high-performance computing after announcing its deal with Amazon. An agreement between NVIDIA and Amazon stated that NVIDIA’s Tesla GPU line will now be part of Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud cluster. Amazon EC2 customers will now have the option of creating Cluster GPU Instances, enabling them to run CUDA code across massive collection of Telsa GPUs. The even more good news here is that customer will only pay for the capacity they need for the duration they need it.
According to Amazon’s general manager of EC2 department, Peter de Santis, their customers will now have “the power of high performance computing, the efficiency and speed of GPUs and the highly available, scalable and affordable cloud environment our customers have come to expect from AWS.”
NVIDIA’s Andy Keane pointed out also that GPU supercomputing through AWS provides users with flexible computing facility, allowing them to scale their needs based on demands. With NVIDIA’s partnership to Amazon, this marks the initial availability of Tesla GPUs to cloud computing users.View Article Source »
