Oracle Supercharges Cloud Offerings with NVIDIA Tesla GPUs

NVIDIA announced in a blog post recently that Oracle is using NVIDIA’s Tesla GPU accelerators for its public cloud.

Oracle’s cloud customers can access NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPU accelerators, starting now, and Oracle will expand its cloud offerings to include the Tesla V100 GPUs, which are based on the NVIDIA Volta architecture.

“The move underscores growing demand for public-cloud access to our GPU computing platform from an increasingly wide set of enterprise users. Oracle’s massive customer base means that a broad range of businesses across many industries will have access to accelerated computing to harness the power of AI, accelerated analytics and high performance computing,” the NVIDIA blog post said.

According to NVIDIA, the companies are working closely to provide the next generation of accelerated computing to enterprises worldwide using Oracle’s X7 compute architecture, which provides flexibility to data scientists, engineers and researchers, allowing them to rent AI and HPC supercomputers by the hour to solve complex challenges.

Oracle’s NVIDIA P100 offering provides its users two P100 GPUs with NVIDIA NVLink high-speed interconnect technology and can deliver 21 teraflops of single-precision performance per instance, which is the kind of performance required for deep learning training and inferencing, accelerated analytics and high performance computing.

Each P100 cloud instance can deliver the performance of up to 25 non-accelerated servers, dramatically saving money for HPC and AI workloads.
