DMN Newswire--2017-10-12-- UKCloud, the easy to adopt, easy to use and easy to leave assured cloud services company, has today announced the launch of its Cloud GPU computing service based on NVIDIA virtual GPU solutions with NVIDIA Tesla P100 and M60 GPUs (graphics processing units). The service will support computational and visualisation intensive workloads for UKCloud's UK public sector and healthcare customers. UKCloud is not only the first Cloud Service Provider based in the UK or Europe to offer Cloud GPU computing services with NVIDIA GPUs, but is also the only provider specialising in public sector and healthcare and the specific needs of these customers. "Building on the foundation of UKCloud's secure, assured, UK-Sovereign platform, we are now able to offer a range of cloud-based compute, storage and GPU services to meet our customers' complex workload requirements," said Simon Hansford, CEO of UKCloud. "The public sector is driving more complex computational and visualisation intensive workloads than ever before, not only for CAD development packages, but also for tasks like the simulation of infrastructure changes in transport, for genetic sequencing in health or for battlefield simulation in defence. In response to this demand, we have a greater focus on emerging technologies such as deep learning, machine learning and artificial intelligence." Many of today's modern applications, especially in fields such as medical imaging or graphical analytics, need an NVIDIA GPU to power them, whether they are running on a laptop or desktop, on a departmental server or on the cloud. Just as organisations are finding that their critical business applications can be run more securely and efficiently in the cloud, so too they are realising that it makes sense to host graphical and visualisation intensive workloads there as well.
- UKCloud's Cloud GPU Compute: This is a GPU accelerated computing service, based on the NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPU and supports applications developed using NVIDIA CUDA, that enables parallel co-processing on both the CPU and GPU. Typical use cases include looking for cures, trends and research findings in medicine along with genomic sequencing, data mining and analytics in social engineering, and trend identification and predictive analytics in business or financial modelling and other applications of AI and deep learning. Available from today with all VM sizes, Cloud GPU Compute will represent an additional cost of £1.90 per GPU per hour on top of the cost of the VM.
- UKCloud's Cloud GPU Visualisation: This is a virtual GPU (vGPU) service, utilising the NVIDIA Tesla M60, that extends the power of NVIDIA GPU technology to virtual desktops and apps. In addition to powering remote workspaces, typical use cases include military training simulations and satellite image analysis in defence, medical imaging and complex image rendering. Available from the end of October with all VM sizes, Cloud GPU Visualisation will represent an additional cost of £0.38 per vGPU per hour on top of the cost of the VM.
