GPU-Accelerated Cloud Computing Gets A Boost With New Amazon AWS Instances

GPU-accelerated computing has fueled recent breakthroughs in artificial intelligence, scientific discovery and high performance computing. It now has a cloud computing pipeline to match. We’ve worked with Amazon Web Services to create their newest and most powerful GPU-accelerated cloud offering: the AWS EC2 P2 instance. Researchers and data scientists can use the instance, which is powered by up to eight NVIDIA Tesla K80 data center GPUs, to accelerate a wide range of compute-intensive applications.
