Existing users invite new users in a viral loop, reducing user acquisition costs. Users are more likely to upgrade and expand, increasing LTV and net-dollar-retention.

New Cloud TPU VMs make training your ML models on TPUs easier than ever

Article | June 1, 2021

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.
