Azure to get NVIDIA Grid support on VM's

Post by jamesworrell » Wed Sep 30, 2015 2:07 am

Got a big job? Run it on pay-by-hour compute. I know Amazon have had for a while, but things are hotting up in this space.

I can envisage billing the client for the compute cost .. 448GB RAM, 32 cores .. dedicated 8GB graphics .. $12/hr

Just need to get rid of dongles and network license servers ...

NVidia pass-through (DDA) for their new K80 cards .. N-series virtual machines .. going to be interesting!
