Do the RTX2080 GPUs available to be used in the cloud?


I have noticed that in Google Colab only the Tesla family of GPUs is available.
I am wondering if in any other cloud provider is possible to use an RTX2080? If not, then what is the market for those GPUs? I am confused.

Thank you

Hello and thanks for your question!

The RTX family of GPUs are targeted towards consumer use-cases while the Tesla family of GPUs (across GPU architectures) are designed and optimized to be deployed within hyperscale environments like a cloud service provider (ex: Google Colab). It is hence that cloud service providers offer Tesla family of GPUs to be rented on demand. Based on your compute requirements, you may choose from various instance types on the cloud service providers that offer you varying number and sized GPUs.

Hope this helps!
