    Note

    >- These recommendations are for reference only. Select an appropriate instance model based on your needs.

    • To use NVIDIA GPU instances for 3D rendering tasks such as high-performance graphics processing and video encoding and decoding, you need to install a GRID driver and configure a license server. For GNV4v, GNV4, and GN7vw instances, you can select a specified image with a GRID driver preinstalled and a license server preconfigured.
    • GNV4v, GNV4, and GN7vw instance clusters provide vGPU instance types that support vDWs and vWs. They also support graphics APIs such as DirectX and OpenGL.

    Service Options

    • Spot instances and pay-as-you-go instances are supported.
    • Instances can be launched in VPC.
    • Instances can be connected to other services such as CLB, without additional management and Ops costs. Private network traffic is free of charge.
