We are excited to announce that today, 07 Oct 2021, we are releasing a major update to LightOn cloud infrastructure, with the use of containers
There will be no change in the way you use LightOn Cloud and you shouldn’t notice anything different: you will still have SSH access and a complete Jupyterlab environment.
Notable new features include:
- Latest versions of the packages, with CUDA 11.1 , PyTorch 1.9
- Bookings can now start immediately if an OPU is available, no more need to wait for 10 minutes
Note that in this new platform you have complete control on the conda installation although you won’t have admin privileges.
Also if you may need to re-create your Anaconda or virtual environment, as the absolute path of your home changed, and these environment may not like that.
