Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, running the NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs can run complex AI models and deep learning systems between two-and-a-half to six times faster than previous generations of GPUs. A100 GPU can help enterprises unlock more value from their data and innovate faster, enabling important breakthroughs. Customers will also be able to run their complex HPC applications using GPUDirect over NVIDIA Mellanox RDMA networking, which enables clusters of thousands of GPUs, connected with microsecond latency, to deliver massive computational power. Karan Batta, vice president, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure said,
“Since its inception, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has standardized on NVIDIA’s GPUs, beginning with the Pascal generation, moving to Volta and now with Ampere. Our customers demand the best of on-premises with all the benefits of the cloud, which is what we’re delivering with our latest GPU instance running on NVIDIA’s latest A100 GPU. We have the largest, most performant, and most cost effective A100 offering in the cloud because we offer double the memory and more local storage than competitors. This is the GPU instance customers have been waiting for to move to the cloud and deliver important breakthroughs.”
