StackPath Launches GPU-Accelerated Edge Compute Instances
DALLAS – October 25, 2023 – StackPath, the industry-leading edge computing platform, today announced the addition of NVIDIA GPU-Accelerated Instances to its Virtual Machine (VM) and Container product options.
The new instances utilize NVIDIA A2 Tensor Core and NVIDIA A16 GPUs to deliver the computational power required by workloads such as deep learning algorithms, intense graphical processing, and other parallel architectures, which are key to innovative and emerging technologies ranging from artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR).
At launch, the instances are available in StackPath Dallas, San Jose, and Frankfurt locations and will be added across the StackPath platform throughout 2024. With StackPath facilities’ proximity to sources and destinations of data, the GPU-Accelerated Instances will pair exceptional computational power and efficiency with incredible data ingress and egress speed.
“Our GPU-Accelerated Instances are exactly what new and next-generation workloads—like AI inference, computer vision, and natural language processing—really need to succeed,” said Tom Reyes, Chief Product Officer for StackPath. “These are real-time applications. So, as much as they need high computational power, they also need exceptionally low latency. The physical location of our platform minimizes the number of hops in and out of our instances, so the advantages provided by a GPU aren’t undermined by geographic distance.”
