OTOY is a cloud graphics firm, pioneering expertise that’s redefining content material creation and supply for media and leisure organizations all over the world.
“For nearly a decade we have been pushing the boundary of GPU rendering and cloud computing to get to the point where there are no longer constraints on artistic creativity. With Google Cloud’s NVIDIA A100 instances featuring massive VRAM and the highest OctaneBench ever recorded, we have reached a first for GPU rendering – where artists no longer have to worry about scene complexity when realizing their creative visions. OctaneRender GPU-accelerated rendering democratized visual effects enabling anyone with an NVIDIA GPU to create high-end visual effects on par with a Hollywood studio. Google Cloud’s NVIDIA A100 instances are a major step in further democratizing advanced visual effects, giving any OctaneRender and RNDR users on-demand access to state of the art NVIDIA GPUs previously only available in the biggest Hollywood studios” – Jules Urbach, Founder and CEO, OTOY.
GPU pricing and availability
NVIDIA A100 GPU situations at the moment are obtainable within the following areas: us-central1, asia-southeast1 and europe-west4 with extra areas slated to come back on-line all through 2021. A2 Compute Engine VMs can be found by way of on-demand, preemptible and dedicated utilization reductions and are additionally totally supported on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), Cloud AI Platform, and different Google Cloud companies. A100 GPUs can be found for as little as $0.87 per hour per GPU on our preemptible A2 VMs. You could find full pricing particulars here.
You may stand up and working shortly, begin coaching ML fashions, and serving inference workloads on NVIDIA A100 GPUs with our Deep Learning VM images in any of our obtainable areas. These pictures embrace all of the software program you’ll want: drivers, NVIDIA CUDA-X AI libraries, and widespread AI frameworks like TensorFlow and PyTorch. Our pre-built and optimized TensorFlow Enterprise Images additionally help A100 optimizations for present and older variations of TensorFlow (1.15, 2.1, and a pair of.3). We deal with all software program updates, compatibility, and efficiency optimizations, so that you don’t have to consider it. Take a look at our GPU page to be taught extra concerning the extensive choice of GPUs obtainable on Google Cloud.
