Deep Learning VM Images is a set of virtual machine images optimized for data science and machine learning tasks. All images come with key ML frameworks and tools pre-installed. You can use them out of the box on instances with GPUs to accelerate your data processing tasks.
Deep Learning VM images are available to support many combinations of framework and processor. There are currently images supporting TensorFlow Enterprise, TensorFlow, PyTorch, and generic high-performance computing, with versions for both CPU-only and GPU-enabled workflows.
To see a list of frameworks available, see Choosing an image.
Images are based on the Debian 11 and Ubuntu 20.04 operating systems, and these images can be configured to include the following:
Specific frameworks (for example, TensorFlow) and supporting packages.
Python 3.10 with the following packages:
- many more
JupyterLab notebook environments for quick prototyping
Nvidia packages with the latest Nvidia driver for GPU-enabled instances:
- CUDA 11.x and 12.x (the version depends on the framework)
- CuDNN 7.x and NCCL 2.x (the version depends on the CUDA version)
Deep Learning VM images are updated regularly with bug fixes and package updates. Check the release notes for information about updates.
