Nvidia plugin makes GPU acceleration possible in Docker containers

It’s a conundrum: You’ve got deep learning software, which benefits greatly from GPU acceleration, wrapped up in a Docker container and ready to go across thousands of nodes. But wait — apps in Docker containers can’t access the GPU because they’re, well, containerized. Well, now they can. Nvidia, developer of the CUDA standard for GPU-accelerated programming, is releasing a plugin for the Docker ecosystem that makes GPU-accelerated computing possible in containers. With the plugin, applications running in a Docker container get controlled access to the GPU on the underlying hardware via Docker’s own plug-in system.
