Hi everyone, 

 

I recently obtained a fully complete computer with a high-end gpu. I was wondering which techniques I could use in order to allow access to the processing power granted by the gpu, specifically for deep learning, to other devices in the network? The computer will be connected to the network through ethernet.

I take it you didn't know that gpu stands for graphics processing unit as in what a video card uses for video display.
Unclear what you mean by "deep learning" but the gpu can't be shared with other network devices.

@Wand3r3r

For machine learning right now, GPUs are commonly used to decrease training times on models. For example, things which would normally take days would be reduced to a couple of hours. After asking around, and for others looking at this thread, I decided that the best solution would probably be to setup both ssh and rdp, so I can easily access the server when I need a desktop to be displayed but also issue commands to the server at a low cost.

He's talking about this...

RDP will open you up to ransomware attacks.

 

VPN would be a better solution.
