[D] Where do you rent compute resources (GPU, FPGA, etc.)?
Where do you guys rent compute resources for training? What are your primary selection criteria (cost/reliability/bandwidth/ data location), for your particular use case?
Do you also own your own AI/ML gears for consistent workload, in addition to the cloud? I am asking this as I am building an exchange where people can share quality compute resources at-cost or near-cost. Would this be something that you are interested in? If not, what are the main objections?
And finally, if you are living in Melbourne (Australia) and actively learning/working with/competing in AI/ML, I’d like to take you out for Starbucks.
P.S. The project is close to release (on the technical side) so let me know if you want to poke around with the beta version. The compute (nodes with at least 2x 1080Ti & workstation CPU) is on me!
