We’re exploring GPUs! They’re a hard problem because GPUs are meant for multinenancy, so you have to figure out how to allocate an entire GPU to a VM. That also means they’re expensive.
Right now, we have two classes of vms.
dedicated-cpu. We’re planning to release:
- Larger shared CPU VMs, probably
shared-cpu-2x, 4x and 8x. This will you give you shared access to up to 8 CPUs. They might be pretty good for things with bursty CPU.
- More dedicated CPUs. Right now we only go to 8. We could theoretically go to 24.
We’ve also been considering more permanent “reservations” for dedicated CPU VMs.
What kinds of things could you all use?
