HPC performance on IaaS with GPUs & HPC-IA
The use of accelerators can provide large gains in performance while also decreasing the costs associated with running HPC apps in the public cloud. Most public cloud service providers offer a selection of instances or VMs incorporating some of the most advanced server GPUs. Furthermore, several providers have already announced the upcoming availability of Nvidia Ampere architecture.
HPC users can choose between running their workloads in a single instance or tailor GPU clusters to their timely needs. This flexibility is especially critical because of the large upfront cost of GPU servers and fluctuating workloads. The performance and scalability of HPC apps on GPU clusters is a complex function that depends on many factors and where a large variety of variables can affect the final performance. Particularly critical is scalability at increasing cluster size. Contact us directly at if you are interested in using GPU-enabled IaaS.
We are currently performing further testing with GPUs and updated results will be available soon.
