EC2 Instance Type - The Cluster GPU Instance

Amazon purpose now GPU clusters...

Each cluster have the following configuration :

  • A pair of NVIDIA Tesla M2050 "Fermi" GPUs.
  • A pair of quad-core Intel "NehalemX5570 processors offering 33.5 ECUs (EC2 Compute Units).
  • 22 GB of RAM.
  • 1690 GB of local instance storage.
  • 10 Gbps Ethernet, with the ability to create low latency, full bisection bandwidth HPC clusters.

It cool to see that Good GPU are included in clusters. But does the cloud must be used to launch a computation on the cloud, or does the cloud must be substituted by only one machine with a network interface....
