About a year ago, we made two big announcements, introducing GPU instances to our fleet in Newark, NJ, and expanding our global network with the addition of a data center in Mumbai, India.
Today, we are happy to bring them together by making GPU instances available to our customers in the Asia Pacific market. Mumbai remains a fast-growing technology center and is home to more than 5 million software developers. Our GPU offering will allow them to tackle complex cloud computing problems and accelerate innovation faster, simpler, and more affordably.
Linode GPU instances are built on NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000 GPU cards and include all three major types of processing cores (CUDA, Tensor, and Ray Tracing). Our partnership with NVIDIA allows us to offer superior price-performance for our customers on a range of workloads, including machine learning, artificial intelligence, high-quality graphics rendering, video transcoding, and scientific computing.
This is a significant next step in the global roll-out of GPUs. Mumbai has been a popular request from our community. In the coming months, we are working on adding GPU instances in Frankfurt, Singapore, and expanding availability in Newark to provide global coverage.
GPU instances can be deployed via the Cloud Manager, API, and Linode CLI. Please note that we have limited availability in each data center, if you are looking for a custom configuration or additional region, let us know here.
