On the 1st of February, a new and improved experience for virtual machines was launched on the UCloud platform. This means that launching a virtual machine will only take a few seconds. Previously, UCloud users had to wait a few business days before a virtual machine could be created due to a manual step in the approval process.
We are also planning to expand the offer of virtual machines with more types of GPU enabled machines and different software.
Faster startup times for virtual machines is one of the many improvements that has been made possible by the major UCloud update, which was launched at the beginning of January (read more here).
Thanks to this update, it will also soon be possible for UCloud users to access other DeiC HPC services where they will be able to submit new jobs or look at the status of their jobs.
