How to Launch GPU H100 notebook

Select from pre-built or one of your own images, Next you choose GPU H100 plan and click on create button.

Notebook options

  • Disk Size: Each TIR Notebook can have a disk size upto 1000GB. The default is 30GB. The selected disk will be mounted at /home/jovyan in your notebook environment. We recommend using this path as your workspace so in case of restarts, your content will be persistent. Since, TIR is container-native, the changes that you make to any other paths on the notebook will not be persisted on restarts. You can extend the disk size after the start of notebook as well. This workspace will be deleted when the associated notebook is deleted.

    Note

    Please raise a support ticket if you need more than 1TB of disk workspace.

  • Local NVME Storage: Only available for GPU H100 plans. This fast local storage will be available at /mnt/local andonly for the duration of run. We recommend using this path when you need faster writes (e.g. save model checkpoints) or reads. Be sure to move this data to EOS bucket or under /home/jovyan before shutting down the notebook. This type of storage is fixed and can not be expanded at anytime during the notebook cycle.

    Note

    By default, you receive 1000 (GB). The size of the local storage is fixed and cannot be altered.

  • Plan (Pricing): You can choose between an hourly or committed plan. We recommend using committed plans as they offer discounts and also may offer access to local NVME storage (for H100 plans only).

  • Notebook Image: TIR environments are container-native. You can use pre-built images with well known frameworks like pytorch, tranformers or customise the pre-built images. You can make your own images TIR-compatible using image builder utility. We recommend starting with pre-built images. In case you need to install packages from pip or apt-get, we recommend doing so from a jupyter notebook (.ipynb) or maintaining requirements.txt.

  • Delete Notebook: When a notebook is deleted, all the resources associated with it will be deleted including the workspace (disk).
