Implementing virtual workstations on AWS

Amazon EC2 G4 instances deliver high-performance GPUs for deploying graphics-intensive applications.

G4 instances are powered by the latest generation of NVIDIA T4 Tensor Core GPUs – with Quadro Virtual Workstation software at no additional cost, up to 100 Gbps of networking throughput, and up to 1.8 TB of local NVMe storage. NVIDIA T4 GPUs include RT Cores to accelerate ray tracing and new Tensor Cores for AI inference, making real-time ray tracing possible.

Here’s how it works:

G4 instances are offered in different sizes, with your choice of one GPU or multiple GPUs, and varying amounts of vCPU and memory, giving you the flexibility to pick the right instance size for your applications.
