Grazed from UKCloud

UKCloud has today announced the launch of its Cloud GPU computing service based on NVIDIA virtual GPU solutions with NVIDIA Tesla P100 and M60 GPUs (graphics processing units). The service will support computational and visualization intensive workloads for UKCloud's UK public sector and healthcare customers. UKCloud is not only the first Cloud Service Provider based in the UK or Europe to offer Cloud GPU computing services with NVIDIA GPUs, but is also the only provider specializing in public sector and healthcare and the specific needs of these customers.

"Building on the foundation of UKCloud's secure, assured, UK-Sovereign platform, we are now able to offer a range of cloud-based compute, storage and GPU services to meet our customers' complex workload requirements," said Simon Hansford, CEO of UKCloud. "The public sector is driving more complex computational and visualization intensive workloads than ever before, not only for CAD development packages, but also for tasks like the simulation of infrastructure changes in transport, for genetic sequencing in health or for battlefield simulation in defense. In response to this demand, we have a greater focus on emerging technologies such as deep learning, machine learning and artificial intelligence."
