What do Airtel and Vultr Offer to Customers?
Under the offerings, Airtel has mentioned three things: Cloud Compute, Cloud GPU, and Bare Metal. For Cloud Compute, here's what enterprises should know.
a) Cloud Compute:
Airtel says that its cloud compute services are delivered with high performance at a low price. The service starts at just $5/month, with an optional upgrade to NVMe SSD.
Further, Airtel says that as soon as the enterprise clicks deploy, the Vultr cloud orchestration takes over and spins up the enterprise's instance on its desired data center.
b) Cloud GPU:
Airtel promises two things with the Cloud GPU services - a) industry-leading support for high-performance computing and b) breakthrough GPU virtualisation.
c) Bare Metal:
Enterprises get dedicated performance as the server hardware is 100% for the enterprise that's choosing the service, and there will be zero shared resources. Enterprises won't have to worry about metered CPUs and IOPS resource limits. Enterprises would also have direct access to all the server resources without any virtualisation layer.
