- To enable users to employ dedicated capacity to run OpenAI’s machine learning models, the company quietly introduced Foundry, its newest developer platform.

Users also have control over the exact snapshot of their model, so they can choose if they want to update to the latest model or not.
Foundry does not come cheap though, as rentals are based on 3-month or 1-year commitments and priced as such:
