Easiest way to run GPU-enabled tests


Hi all,

I would like to build and run tests for a GPU-enabled nvidia/cuda program on CircleCI. I have read the documentation parts about GPU-Runners, and it seems that it is only possible on my own server with gpu-instances. Is this correct? Is there a way to get gpu-enabled instances on the standard CircleCI app without having to setup a server?

Thank you for your help!


The closest that CircleCI have to real machines is, I believe, the Machine executor. I would be surprised if that is GPU enabled, since it is probably still a virtual machine (e.g. VM Ware or similar, rather than Docker).


OK thanks! That’s what I thought …


Maybe you can get a GPU-enabled VPS on the web (e.g. something like this), and use CircleCI to orchestrate some remote tests on it? Or maybe there is an emulator framework for GPU?
