Quoting from the article:

“As CIO Applications analyzed cloud offerings making a difference in this regard, SkyScale emerged. SkyScale is San Diego based and provides a level of supercomputing to corporate AI efforts we’ve not seen elsewhere. SkyScale offers cloud-based, world-class multi-GPU hardware uniquely configured and tuned for HPC and AI workloads, leap-frogging key corporate implementation challenges and jump-starting the process.

Meanwhile, the cloud technology giants have focused primarily on CPU processing, only recently adding virtualized GPU capability. Regardless of the marketing spin, virtualization means shared equipment resulting in slower performance and multi-tenant security concerns.”

The article continues:

“To test the relative performance of dedicated versus virtualized systems, CIO Applications secured data from benchmark tests executed by a 3rd party on 8-GPU instances of NVIDIA's latest generation Volta GPUs on SkyScale and on the industry’s largest cloud provider. In the comparative test, a standardized ResNet50 deep neural network model for image classification was run on a Caffe2 deep learning framework. The dedicated SkyScale instance performed 30 percent faster at classifying images than the virtualized system hosted by the industry giant. A cost analysis then resulted in a combined 70 percent performance/cost benefit.”

The article quotes SkyScale President, Tim Miller:

“Our on-demand dedicated offerings for project-based workflows enable remote access to supercomputing hardware when needed,” explains Miller. “With these systems, users get root level control and don’t face the multi-tenant downsides related to virtualization. The resulting upside to our customers includes enhanced performance, flexibility, and multiple levels of cost savings based on usage and capital and facilities expense.”

The article concludes:

“During our investigation into cloud-based AI and ML technologies, SkyScale emerged as the leader in GPU supercomputing with uncompromising security and competitive pricing.”
