The dual-GPU platform is designed to store up to 24 gigabytes of memory and offer a computing speed rate of up to 2.91 tera floating point operations per second.

New York University and startup firms MapD and Artomatix are some of the institutions that have started adopting Tesla K80 GPU accelerators on IBM cloud infrastructure, according to IBM.
