...well kind of...


3. Cracking OS

1. Hardware

2. Baremetal OS

Solution Overview

  • Origins
    • AWS/clouds have GPU instances...🤔
  • Linux Kernel
    • PCIe Pass-Through
    • Libvirt/KVM/QEMU
    • Video games 😁
  • Automation
    • Ansible
    • Vagrant

G5 instances are built on the AWS Nitro System, a combination of dedicated hardware and lightweight hypervisor which delivers practically all of the compute and memory resources of the host hardware to your instances for better overall performance and security. With G5 instances, the Nitro system provisions the GPUs in a pass-through mode, providing performance comparable to bare-metal.





  • Slight performance overhead
  • More complex
  • More compute used (reserved)


  • Better reliability
  • Helps when managing more than 1 server at a time
  • Versatility (ML VMs...🤔)
