Speaking at Oracle OpenWorld, Don Johnson, the company's senior vice president of product development, said that Oracle Cloud customers can now access NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPU accelerators. Additionally, he said Oracle will expand its cloud offerings to include Tesla V100 GPUs, the most powerful data center GPUs, based on our latest Volta architecture.
The move underscores growing demand for public-cloud access to its 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.
"We're working closely with NVIDIA to provide the next generation of accelerated computing to enterprises worldwide using our X7 compute architecture," said Kash Ifikhar, vice president of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. "This provides incredible flexibility to data scientists, engineers and researchers, allowing them to rent cutting-edge AI and HPC supercomputers by the hour to solve challenges of exceptional complexity."
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 -- 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.
"Accelerated computing is powering a revolution in AI, HPC and enterprise computing," said Ian Buck, vice president of Accelerated Computing at NVIDIA. "Now with NVIDIA GPUs, the Oracle Cloud brings that computation power to its customers worldwide."
With the benefits of our GPU computing platform available to an even wider audience, expect to be amazed by a new wave of solutions for problems not yet solved.
