Thanks to the “Projet de loi 12146”, we could bought some hardware to provide a new service:
Virtual server with GPU on demand.
This service is in beta and was mainly done by our colleague @Sylvain.Huwiler from the DiSTIC.
It may be useful for people who needs interactive graphical sessions.
Each VM has the following characteristics:
- 4 vCPU
- 24GB RAM
- 4GB GPU RAM
- 250GB fast local scratch
- Windows 10
You are free to install additional software such as Matlab toolbox, but the change you’ll do will be erased the next time you launch a VM. If you need frequently the same software, ask here if it’s possible to install it.
Right now, there is no scheduler, first come, first serve. The usage limit is 24h.
The VM are ephemeral and once your session is finished, all the data are erased!
You are very welcome to discuss about this service on this new catogory. @Sylvain.Huwiler will read the topics there.
If interested to have an account, write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and explain in a short paragraph your intended usage. The usage cost is free.
To access the VM once granted, please see here how to proceed.
