GPU–Virtual Machines and Bare Metal

GPU-powered bare metal and virtual instances offer companies a high performance computing platform for demanding applications that run sophisticated algorithms. Applications that rely on machine learning, image processing, and massively parallel high-performance computing jobs benefit from running GPUs as they allow companies to solve complex problems and innovate faster.

NVIDIA Quadro Virtual Workstation on Oracle Cloud

Allows enterprises to deliver powerful workstation performance wherever employees need it.

GPU-Accelerated Virtual Machines and Bare Metal key features

High-performance NVIDIA GPU instances

NVIDIA Tensor Core GPUs

NVIDIA GPUs are designed to run the same instruction multiple times with different data, helping customers solve complex problems in science, engineering, and business. Oracle’s newest GPU is ideally suited for model training, inference computation, physics and image rendering, and massively parallel applications.

Bare metal performance

Bare metal servers allow customers to run high performance, latency-sensitive, specialized, and traditional workloads directly on server hardware—just as they would on-premises. Bare metal instances are ideal for workloads that need to run in nonvirtualized environments.

RDMA + GPU = massive speed and scale

NVIDIA A100 GPUs utilize Oracle’s low latency cluster networking, based on remote direct memory access (RDMA), running over converged ethernet (RoCE) with latency of less than two microseconds. Customers can host more than 500 GPUs in a cluster and scale on demand.

Choose from optimized VM and bare metal shapes

Range of instance types and configurations

Match your workload with different instance types to find your ideal fit:

  • Select from NVIDIA A100, V100, or P100 GPUs
  • Choose from VMs or bare metal instances
Intel and AMD CPU options

Utilize the CPU architecture you prefer, based on workload demands:

  • Up to 768GB of memory on bare metal (2048 GB on A100)
  • Up to 1 PB block storage
  • Networking from 25 Gbps to 8 x 200 Gbps RDMA

Optimal price/performance

Block storage price/performance advantage

Oracle block volumes are 57% less expensive than the competition and delivers performance that meets or exceeds their offerings. Oracle’s straightforward and globally consistent cloud storage pricing has no provisioning charges for standard IOPS usage, and eliminates the need to use complex pricing formulas to forecast spend.

Gain network efficiency

Oracle Cloud networking infrastructure is fast, predictable and inexpensive, offering the lowest data egress charges from a major cloud provider (after offering 10 TB at no charge). For customers with significant data transfer requirements, this results in a huge cost advantage.

Customer 8x8, saved more than 80% in network outbound costs.

Consistent global pricing

Compute, storage, database, and infrastructure prices are the same across the globe, offering savings of 30% or more relative to competitors in some geographies.

Secure cloud infrastructure

Isolated network virtualization

Prevent attacks on customer tenancies with isolated network virtualization. A foundational element of Oracle Cloud infrastructure’s security-first architecture, the design stops malware in its tracks with a custom-designed SmartNIC to isolate and virtualize the network.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Identity and Access Management

Using easy-to-define policies organized by logical groups of users and resources, control not only who has access to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure resources but which ones and the access type. Customers manage identities and grant access by leveraging existing organizational hierarchies and federated directory services, including Microsoft, Okta and other SAML directory providers.

Hardware root of trust

Reduce the risk of firmware-based attacks against Oracle Cloud Infrastructure customer tenants with custom-built, hardware-based, root-of-trust-technology designed to wipe and reinstall the firmware every time a new server is provisioned or a new customer tenancy is established.

Oracle Web Application Firewall

Protect applications from malicious and unwanted internet traffic with a cloud-based, PCI-compliant, global web application firewall (WAF) service. By combining threat intelligence with consistent rule enforcement, this service strengthens defenses and protects internet-facing application servers.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Vault

Centrally manage and maintain control of the encryption keys and secret credentials used to protect enterprise data and access resources. The security for both are stored in Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2, Level 3-certified, hardware security module (HSM).

Users can further control permissions for individual keys and vaults with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Identity and Access Management, and monitor key lifecycle with Oracle Audit to meet enhanced compliance requirements.

Choice of operating systems and application images

Choose from popular operating systems

Oracle supports an extensive list of Microsoft Windows Server and enterprise Linux operating systems, including Oracle Linux, CentOS, Ubuntu, and many others. Oracle Autonomous Linux is a free, autonomous operating environment that reduces complexity and human error to deliver increased cost savings, security and availability.

Automate operating system management

The OS Management service allows customers to set policies for automated updates and patches for their operating system environment.
