Gradient offers a Free Tier of free GPU and CPU instances, available to all users of Gradient Community Notebooks (currently in beta).
The Free Instances are available to all Private Workspace plans, i.e. G* subscriptions (not T*).
Free-CPU — C3 CPU instance
Free-GPU+ — NVIDIA M4000 GPU
Free-P5000 — NVIDIA P5000 GPU
See the Instance Types page for the details on these instances.
For your machine learning work on Free Instances, you have 5GB of dedicated Persistent Storage. This 5GB of storage is dedicated and persistent regardless of which Private Workspace subscription plan you're on.
Because Persistent Storage is exclusive per-region, this means that data in Persistent Storage for the Free Tier is not be accessible from paid instance types, and vice versa.
For example, you can be on a G2 subscription plan with 1TB of Persistent Storage, which will be used for your paid work, and any Free Instances that you use (which you will still have access to) will still use their dedicated 5GB of persistent storage.
All free instances have the same limits, regardless of your subscription plan:
Notebooks will automatically shutdown after 6 hours per session
There are currently no limits to the number of sessions you can run
All Notebooks (and Jobs coming soon) will be set to public and cannot be set to private
5GB of persistent storage is included for free — this cannot be expanded
Note: We are currently offering a limited pool of free instances so your notebook may be Pending in the queue as you wait for a free instance to become available. If you need immediate access to machines, please consider upgrading to a paid subscription plan.
