Last week at SC17, SkyScale announced its partnership with Rescale, the foremost cloud simulation and HPC solution provider, and availability of NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPU accelerators on its GPU as a Service cloud platform. Enhancing SkyScale’s dedicated, cloud-based ultra-fast multi-GPU platforms for deep learning and HPC applications, the Tesla V100 offers the performance of 100 CPUs in a single GPU—enabling data scientists, researchers, and engineers to tackle the most difficult deep learning and HPC challenges.

There has been a lot of anticipation for the V100 processor, and justifiably so,” said Tim Miller, president of SkyScale. “The performance of the NVIDIA V100 with NVLink truly represents a leap forward over previous generations, particularly for AI and HPC. SkyScale is proud to be among the very first to offer such advanced GPU performance as a service in dedicated systems, which are generally faster and more secure than virtualized machines.”

SkyScale’s V100 offerings are dedicated bare-metal systems with four, eight, or sixteen V100 GPUs in a single node, which can also be clustered. Interconnect technologies include PCIe and NVIDIA NVLink high-speed interconnects, running up to 300 GB/s; five times the bandwidth of PCIe.
