Vultr Includes NVIDIA A16 to Its GPU Lineup for VDI Access

Vultr | February 10, 2023

On February 9, 2023, Vultr, a leading privately held cloud computing firm, announced the Cloud GPU availability of the NVIDIA A16, the industry's leading graphics processing unit (GPU) for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). The NVIDIA A16 is explicitly designed for high-density, graphics-rich VDI, providing remote employees with a user experience that is practically indistinguishable from a native PC. The NVIDIA A16 joins the NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU and the NVIDIA A40 in the Vultr lineup, further democratizing worldwide access to accelerated computing. Vultr is the only independent cloud computing platform offering the entire suite of Cloud GPU, Cloud Compute, Cloud Storage, Managed Databases, Bare Metal, Kubernetes, and other cloud-native services globally. In addition, Vultr became the first cloud provider to offer fractions of the NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU, which drastically speeds deep learning, HPC, and data analytics, as well as the NVIDIA A40 GPU, that delivers outstanding graphical prowess for visual computing. Instead of acquiring and installing GPUs oneself or renting complete clusters from other cloud providers, Vultr's solutions allow users to just pay for the resources they require. Cloud GPU instances supported by the NVIDIA A16 are perfect for running popular Linux and Windows desktop apps such as developer IDEs, including Android Studio and Visual Studio, or productivity apps such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel. Cloud GPU instances with the NVIDIA A40 may be a better match for graphics-intensive tasks such as rendering, visual effects (VFX), and computer-aided design (CAD). By connecting to them using clients like Microsoft Remote Desktop, Parsec, and VNC, cloud GPU instances may be utilized as remote desktops. Pricing begins at $0.032 per hour or $21.50 per month, making these cloud-based virtual desktops a cost-effective alternative to IT-managed actual personal PCs. While the NVIDIA A16 is primarily designed for VDI, it is also a flexible GPU that can be used for streaming, transcoding, and machine learning inference. Vultr now offers many interconnected NVIDIA A16, A100, and A40 GPUs as Bare Metal servers to support these compute-intensive use cases better. About Vultr Vultr is a leading privately held cloud computing firm headquartered in West Palm Beach, Florida. With its diverse range of cloud, bare metal, and storage offerings, it has mastered the art and science of cloud infrastructure, building one of the largest independent cloud computing providers in the process. It handles complex hosting scenarios and provides industry-leading performance and reliability while expanding one of the largest and most accessible global networks. The company has provided scalable, flexible, Cloud GPU, global Cloud Compute, Bare Metal, and Cloud Storage [A1] solutions to over 1.5 million clients in 185 countries.
