AWS Turns to G4 Instances for Handling Machine Learning Workloads
IT ProToday | September 25, 2019
Artificial intelligence and machine learning workloads often don't perform well on general-purpose computing hardware, on-premises or in the cloud. For cloud users, however, there is now a new option: Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) G4 instances.
The G4 instance, which became generally available for Amazon Web Services (AWS) users on Sept. 20, provides an Nvidia GPU-powered compute instance type that is purpose-built for machine learning workloads. G4 instances include AWS custom Intel Xeon Scalable “Cascade Lake” processors, local NVMe storage and up to 50G bps of networking throughput.
