P1 ECSs use NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPUs and provide flexibility, high performance, and cost-effectiveness. These ECSs support GPU Direct for direct communication between GPUs, improving data transmission efficiency. P1 ECSs provide outstanding universal computing capabilities and have strengths in deep learning, graphic databases, high-performance databases, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), computing finance, seismic analysis, molecular modeling, and genomics. They are designed for scientific computing.
Follow the instructions provided in section Creating and Logging In to ECS to log in to the console and create an ECS. Pay attention to the following settings:
Data may be lost on the local NVMe SSDs attached to P1 ECSs due to a fault, for example, due to a disk or host fault. Therefore, you are suggested to store only temporary data in local NVMe SSDs. If you store important data in such a disk, securely back up the data.
