Cloud computing has revolutionized industries by democratizing the data center for completely changing the way businesses operate. Your most important assets are now in the cloud with your preferred provider. GPU is the computing platform that transforms big data into super-human intelligence. It is the computational engine for the new era of AI. Now, you can bring all the power of GPU-accelerated deep learning and AI to your data in the cloud--opening up a world of possibility.
IT leaders are always going to keep tabs on how much it costs to deploy the cloud. But this need will force them into combining the cloud with other analytics solutions. Since the main benefit of the cloud is reducing cost and using resources more efficiently, companies need to confirm that they are actually getting those benefits.
What is cloud computing in simple terms? Cloud computing is the delivery of on-demand computing services -- from applications to storage and processing power -- typically over the internet and on a pay-as-you-go basis. How does cloud computing work? Rather than owning their own computing infrastructure or data centers, companies can rent access to anything from applications or servers from a cloud service provider. One benefit of using cloud computing services is that firms can avoid the upfront cost and complexity of owning and maintaining their own IT infrastructure, and instead simply pay for what they use.
Spinning up that AWS or Azure instance at the snap of a finger may be a beautiful thing to behold, but sometimes the application, testbed or whatever it may be gets abandoned and forgotten -- but still appears on monthly bills, along with all the other spun-up but not powered-down services. On the outset, the low-hanging fruit of cloud migration was the purported cost savings seen through switching from a front-loaded licensing model to a month-by-month subscription approach, which certainly looked good on balance sheets from a CapEx perspective. Now, however, as cloud catches on across enterprises, taking up the work of many business functions, many chief financial officers as well as CIOs are gasping at the unexpected expenses seen in their monthly bills. Add to that the lack of visibility into cloud resource usage - something nearly one-third of companies struggle with. As services get gobbled up, the meter keeps running.
