GPU enabled virtual machines
The N-series is a family of Azure Virtual Machines with GPU capabilities. GPUs are ideal for compute and graphics-intensive workloads, helping customers to fuel innovation through scenarios like high-end remote visualization, deep learning, and predictive analytics.
The N-series has three different offerings aimed at specific workloads:
The NC-series is focused on high-performance computing and machine learning workloads. The latest version—NCsv3—features NVIDIA’s Tesla V100 GPU.
The NDs-series is focused on training and inference scenarios for deep learning. It uses the NVIDIA Tesla P40 GPUs. The latest version - NDv2 - features the NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs.
The NV-series enables powerful remote visualization workloads and other graphics-intensive applications backed by the NVIDIA Tesla M60 GPU.
NCsv3, NCsv2, NC and NDs VMs offer optional InfiniBand interconnect to enable scale-up performance.
Example use cases include simulation, deep learning, graphics rendering, video editing, gaming and remote visualization.
