NVIDIA GPUs to Accelerate Microsoft Azure Cloud

Tesla GPUs will enable Microsoft Azure to deliver accelerated computing capabilities to customers worldwide through its cloud platform, Microsoft Azure.

The Tesla Accelerated Computing Platform is designed from the ground up for power-efficient, HPC, computational science, supercomputing, data analytics and deep learning applications.

Powering some of the world’s highest performance supercomputers, the Tesla platform delivers dramatically higher performance and energy efficiency than a CPU-only approach and unprecedented application throughput in the data center.

By deploying the Tesla K80 GPU accelerator in its N-Series virtual machines, Azure dramatically expands access to supercomputing-class performance, enabling enterprises worldwide to accelerate their most demanding workloads, without requiring them to invest in, build and maintain dedicated computing resources.
