In early April 2016, we started offering Monster GPU Machines on Amazon Web Services (AWS) powered by Bitfusion Boost and have seen really great interest. In the last couple of weeks alone we have seen massive usage and is growing at an even faster rate recently.
However, user feedback has been that it still takes time to to get these massive GPU machines up and running for their applications – One has to sign up for an AWS account, subscribe to the necessary AMIs, and read through all the documentation to get things setup correctly. Secondly, we have seen multiple requests to deliver these highly flexible and massive GPU configurations on an hourly basis.
At Bitfusion, we are all about reducing friction and making the process simpler and today we are launching Bitfusion Cloud to enable users to launch monster GPU machines directly. Currently, supporting Grid K520s and K80s during our test drive.
With Bitfusion Cloud, you can spin up large GPU workstations in just a few minutes and get billed hourly. You pay for what you use, and demand as much GPU horsepower as you like. You also don’t have to have an AWS account or subscribe to anything. It’s as simple as it should be.
Bitfusion Cloud 1.0 is designed to be versatile and currently offer three pre-defined types of GPU workstations each one with all the necessary base drivers, SDKs, and pre-installed software. You can also spin up, spin down, pause instances as you normally would on your favorite Cloud provider. And, you can even define a custom monster GPU machine to fit your requirements.
In the next few weeks, we will be expanding our machine options to include instances pre-configured with the most recent versions of the most popular deep learning frameworks, CAD/CAE software, and even Windows support. If you have a particular application you would like to see on Bitfusion Cloud, please let us know!
If you are an Independent Software Vendor who would like to offer large instances optimized for your applications to your customers, or a system vendor/integrator or a cloud service provider interested in offering a Bitfusion Cloud like solution on your hardware, please contact us.
We’re building this for the developers, makers, and power users.
