Google Cloud has become the first cloud service provider to serve up the Nvidia Quadro Virtual Workstation (Quadro vWS). With this move, users can benefit from Nvidia’s Turing GPU architecture through real-time photorealistic rendering and AI-enhanced graphics, video and image processing.
Quadro vWS is based on Nvidia’s Tesla T4 GPU accelerator. T4 is optimized for mainstream computing environments and features multi-precision Turing Tensor Cores and new RT Cores.
With GPU-enabled virtual workstations, enterprises can provide employees with better experiences on cloud computing, without the cost and complexity of data centers.
In addition to the NVIDIA T4, the new Quadro vWS instance supports NVIDIA Tesla V100, P100 and P4 GPUs.
Quadro vWS is currently in private beta. The chipmaker plans to make it available to the general public this month on GCP Marketplace.
