CREODIAS GPU product line-up
Our GPU offer is divided into three product lines that represent different use scenarios. Although they offer comprehensive computing power and are built around same building block use cases are different for each of those configurations.
VM configurations are faster to deploy and can be provisioned instantly, they are aimed for quick tests or quick computing tasks. Like all our VMs they have access to all cloud features and EODATA thru NFS and S3 protocols with speed up to 10 Gbit/s.
DS are single VM on one computer node, dedicating whole node to only one customer. This grants and guarantees the client not only computing resources but network bandwidth and enables local storage with passsthrough speeds. Local NVMe drives dedicated to one customer guarantee 30k+ IOPS.
BM are classical dedicated stand alone servers. Equipped by default with only 2x1 Gbit/s interfaces and only capable of accessing EODATA with External S3 Unlimited Access. Client has full and exclusive access to remote management card and can setup virtualization layers of his choosing. This grants better security and simpler architecture but disconnects BM from most of the Creodias Cloud features.

Graphics Processing Units (GPU) are recently the biggest source of increase in computing power. They were developed as a specialized tool for processing of images mainly in gaming. But currently they are applied in a growing number of CPU heavy applications: not only related to image processing but also to artificial intelligence (AI), deep learning and others.
In the Earth Observation domain (EO), graphics processors are used, among others for radar interferometry. Currently, software development is focused on gaining more and more benefits from the use of calculation accelerators. We install graphic processors in Virtual Machines on a Dedicated Server (DS). These are virtual cloud machines that fill a full physical server that cannot contain any other virtual machines. These physical machines are additionally equipped with one or many GPU cards to which the user gets access through the "passsthrough" mechanism. Thanks to this, the hypervisor overhead for computational operations is virtually eliminated. In addition, these machines are equipped with very fast NVMe storage enabling appropriate supply of the system with data for calculations.
