The business has grown exponentially, in line with the GPU market. Adding AMD support helps Vast continue the trend and continue to lead in the space.”

Today, customers include software developers who are looking to use generative AI in their websites or products, researchers who need high performance compute for their projects (either AI-related or not), individuals who want to run powerful AI models themselves, and agencies and middleware companies that want to provide custom AI and application development services to their clients and need access to affordable GPUs.

Today we are interested in partnering with managed service providers who have the AMD Instinct line and who want to increase the utilization of their clusters, as well as the Radeon line because customers have needs for remote gaming, rendering, and more.”

The service connects data centers and professionals running the Vast hosting software with users who can quickly find the best deals for compute according to their specific requirements. GPU rentals are ~3-5X cheaper than current alternatives. In particular, consumer computers and GPUs are considerably more cost-effective than equivalent enterprise hardware.
