GPU

Accelerated Computing

By running smaller tasks concurrently, GPUs harness the processing power needed for high performance computing. Run a full enterprise from the cloud with unparalleled compute performance, speed, and accuracy.

Provision bare metal servers with cutting-edge GPU hardware to handle your most complex compute-intensive workloads—from analytics and graphics to energy exploration and machine learning.



Powerful

Solve complex problems faster and with less power consumed than with traditional CPUs.

Cost-Effective

Choose the GPU that best meets your needs and pay only when you need it.

Fully Integrated

GPUs seamlessly integrate into our cloud infrastructure, API, and management tools.

What is a GPU?

In a cloud environment, GPUs work in conjunction with a server’s CPU to accelerate application and processing performance. The CPU offloads compute-intensive portions of the application to the GPU which processes large blocks of data at one time rather than sequentially boosting the overall performance in a server environment.

GPUs are better for high performance computing than CPU’s alone because of the thousands of small efficient cores designed to process information faster.

SoftLayer customers can choose the NVIDIA Tesla or GRID graphic cards that best meet the needs of their workloads. NVIDIA Tesla is designed for high performance acceleration of scientific computation and data analytics, and NVIDIA GRID is engineered for professional grade virtualized graphics.


NVIDIA TESLA K80 - Supercharge Your Cloud Server

For your most demanding data analytics and compute-intensive applications, you need maximum performance, throughput and density. The NVIDIA Tesla K80 delivers.

  • Two Kepler GK210 GPUs per board
  • 24GB of ultra-fast GDDR5 memory
  • 480GB/s memory bandwidth
  • 4,992 CUDA® parallel processing cores
  • Dynamic NVIDIA GPU Boost Technology
  • Dynamic Parallelism

If you feel the need for speed, configure a bare metal server with an NVIDIA Tesla K80 GPU. If you still need more power, you can opt to add a secondary K80 GPU to your cloud server, and you'll double your performance capabilities.

GPU for Business


NVIDIA Tesla — General Purpose GPU

Cut labor and time intensive applications with the processing power your business demands.

Medicine — Mitigating a global pandemic requires effective drugs to combat viruses. Scientists, researchers, and doctors, use complex molecular modeling calculations to stimulate multiple drug resistances at once in order to find potentially life-saving results faster.

Financial Services — Offloading thousands of loans is a complex financial transaction requiring competitive and up-to-date market pricing. To ensure accurate numbers, market analysts rely on GPU-based computing to perform large- numbered calculations.

Oil and Gas — Before drilling for oil and gas, geologists take seismic imaging surveys of the ground. The gathered data is calculated to provide a better understanding of the best ways to extract the resources safely and efficiently.

NVIDIA GRID — Cutting-edge Performance

Expand virtualization to any user on the network. Deliver better graphics, improve productivity, and grant access to business critical applications anywhere.

Architects, Engineers & Contractors — Accessing computer-aided design (CAD) tools from the field makes for easier collaboration between in-house and field teams.

Graphic Designers — Experience smooth, rich multimedia applications, including 3D-intensive programs.

Healthcare Professionals — Log on to your desktop and view diagnostic imaging without slowing down network traffic from any workstation within any health network facility.
