Edgecore Networks | December 22, 2021
Edgecore Networks, a leading provider of traditional and open network solutions for enterprises, data centers, and telecommunication service providers, announced the launch of the Work-from-Anywhere (WFA) solution to provide organizations a plug-and-play, secure, agile, reliable mechanism to deliver enterprise-grade services to their remote workers.
The trend of making offices a place for collaboration has been going on for years, but the COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the dial. Social distancing requirements across the world have prompted thousands of companies and millions of employees to discover the benefits of a flexible work environment. This shift to remote work and hybrid workspace forces organizations to take a more systematic and strategic approach to connecting remote workers to applications and data. Traditional WAN connections over MPLS tend to be rigid, costly, and provide deployment connections that cannot easily adapt to today's dynamic networking needs. Edgecore's WFA solution includes feature-rich SD-WAN devices, the SDW-series, addressing those networking issues and provides robust, secure, adaptive network services on demand.
WFA Solution Key Features
Multiple options for central management:\
VM in x86 appliance based
VM in cloud platform
Administrator can monitor and auto-adjust remote networks with real-time feedback from premises and deploy pre-configured network paths to remote sites.
Zero Touch Deployment
Automated provisioning from central management with pre-configured network setup to edge devices without user intervention can improve reliability and minimize bring-up costs, while maintaining efficiency and flexibility on deployment.
Adaptive WAN Selection
The SDW-series provides parallel connections for load-balancing, failover, and traffic steering to ensure the high-quality and reliability of network connections.
Containerized software that pushes container images to remote sites for consistent application performance and availability while reducing the connectivity cost.
The remote worker can access the data center by PC VPN login with 4 simple steps, greatly reducing the remote office roll-out time.
The future of work is work-from-anywhere. With Edgecore’s WFA solution, delivering an in-office experience to workers, wherever they are, isn’t a pipe dream. The flexibility and openness of the solution proactively prepares organizations for an ever-changing future.”

Vultr | May 27, 2022
Vultr, a leading independent cloud infrastructure provider, announced today that Vultr Talon, powered by NVIDIA GPUs and NVIDIA AI Enterprise software, is currently in beta. Vultr Talon, a ground-breaking cloud-based platform, enables GPU sharing, allowing several workloads to execute effectively on a single NVIDIA GPU.
Vultr is the first cloud service to provide GPU sharing by virtualizing NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs. Vultr is launching a set of virtual machine (VM) packages incorporating the NVIDIA A100 today, with prices beginning at $90 per month, or $0.13 per hour.
Breakthrough Cloud Platform Enabling AI Workloads at a Fraction of the Cost
Vultr Talon is powered by a cutting-edge NVIDIA GPU virtualization technology based on NVIDIA's vGPU software. Rather than connecting whole real GPUs to VMs, Vultr adds just a portion in the form of a virtual GPU (vGPU). The NVIDIA AI Enterprise software package, which incorporates NVIDIA vGPU software and is geared for remotely performing AI workloads and high-performance data analytics, powers these vGPUs.
A vGPU appears to a customer's system just like an actual GPU. Each vGPU has its own devoted memory, which is a fraction of the memory on the underlying card. The vGPU has access to a fraction of the computing capacity of the actual GPU. NVIDIA's Multi-Instance GPU (MIG) technology is utilized for Vultr plans with at least 10GB of GPU RAM to give tenants with assured QoS, completely isolated GPU high-bandwidth memory cache, and dedicated compute cores.
High-end GPUs can cost hundreds of dollars per month to rent. While this cost is often justified for the most demanding corporate workloads, for many enterprises and developers, the cost of even a single GPU might be prohibitive to getting started, experimenting, or running apps in development and testing environments. Even organizations with large IT budgets may wind up losing money by supplying more GPU capacity than required or just electing not to use GPUs at all.
At Vultr, we pride ourselves on making high-performance cloud infrastructure affordable for everyone. With Vultr Talon, we have turned the GPU delivery model upside down. Because of our breakthrough cloud platform, AI developers and data scientists can provision exactly as much NVIDIA GPU processing as they actually need, at prices they can afford.”
