Google Cloud expands NVIDIA GPU offerings

Google Cloud is has released the NVIDIA K80 GPU for general availability and their P100 GPU to bet access.
In the blog post, Google had this to say about the improvements: "Cloud GPUs can accelerate your workloads including machine learning training and inference, geophysical data processing, simulation, seismic analysis, molecular modeling, genomics and many more high performance compute use cases. The NVIDIA Tesla P100 is the state of the art of GPU technology. Based on the Pascal GPU architecture, you can increase throughput with fewer instances while saving money. P100 GPUs can accelerate your workloads by up to 10x compared to K801."
“For certain tasks, [NVIDIA] GPUs are a cost-effective and high-performance alternative to traditional CPUs. They work great with Shazam’s core music recognition workload, in which we match snippets of user-recorded audio fingerprints against our catalog of over 40 million songs. We do that by taking the audio signatures of each and every song, compiling them into a custom database format and loading them into GPU memory. Whenever a user Shazams a song, our algorithm uses GPUs to search that database until it finds a match. This happens successfully over 20 million times per day,” said Ben Belchak, Head of Site Reliability Engineering, Shazam.
Clouds are distributed technology platforms that leverage sophisticated technology innovations to provide highly scalable and resilient environments that can be remotely utilized by organizations in a multitude of powerful ways. To successfully build upon, integrate with, or even create a cloud environment requires an understanding of its common inner mechanics, architectural layers, and models, as well as an understanding of the business and economic factors that result from the adoption and real-world use of cloud-based services.
