Today, we’re excited to announce new Cloud TPU VMs, which make it easier than ever before to use our industry-leading TPU hardware by providing direct access to TPU host machines, offering a new and improved user experience to develop and deploy TensorFlow, PyTorch, and JAX on Cloud TPUs. Instead of accessing Cloud TPUs remotely over the network, Cloud TPU VMs let you set up your own interactive development environment on each TPU host machine.

Now you can write and debug an ML model line-by-line using a single TPU VM, then scale it up on a Cloud TPU Pod slice to take advantage of the super-fast TPU interconnect. You have root access to every TPU VM you create, so you can install and run any code you wish in a tight loop with your TPU accelerators. You can use local storage, execute custom code in your input pipelines, and more easily integrate Cloud TPUs into your research and production workflows.

What Is Cloud-Native and Why Does it Matter for CI

Article | February 19, 2020

Continuous intelligence (CI) relies on the real-time analysis of streaming data to produce actionable insights in milliseconds to seconds. Such capabilities have applications throughout a business. In today’s dynamic marketplace, new CI applications that use data from various sources at any given time might be needed on very short notice.The challenge is how to have the flexibility to rapidly develop and deploy new CI applications to meet fast-changing business requirements. A common approach employed today is to use a dynamic architecture that delivers access to data, processing power, and analytics capabilities on demand. In the future, solutions also will likely incorporate artificial intelligence applications to complement the benefits of traditional analytics. Increasingly, cloud-native is the architecture of choice to build and deploy AI-embedded CI applications. A cloud-native approach offers benefits to both the business and developers. Cloud-native applications or services are loosely coupled with explicitly described dependencies.
