ClearML Announces Free Fractional GPU Capability for Open Source Users, Enabling Multi-tenancy for All NVIDIA GPUs

Users can now maximize compute utilization, run more efficient AI and HPC workloads, and achieve higher ROI from their GPU investments

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, US, March 18, 2024 / — ClearML, the leading open source, end-to-end foundational platform for unleashing AI in the enterprise, today announced the release of open source fractional GPU functionality, enabling users to optimize their GPU utilization for free.

With this new functionality, DevOps professionals and AI Infrastructure leaders can take advantage of NVIDIA’s time-slicing technology to safely partition their GTX, RTX, and datacenter-grade, MIG-enabled GPUs into smaller fractional GPUs to support multiple AI and HPC workloads without the risk of failure. This allows organizations to optimize usage of their current compute and legacy infrastructure in the face of increasing AI workloads resulting from the rise of Generative AI.

Unlike earlier AI/ML initiatives running on GPUs, Generative AI requires a high GPU compute load, with dedicated AI infrastructure supporting inference with low latency. Without an effective solution to gain more computing power from existing infrastructure, organizations are forced to purchase additional compute or stagger projects to fit their compute capacity, resulting in prolonged time to value while risking their competitive edge. In fact, according to a recent survey conducted by ClearML (, 96% of respondents said they plan to expand their AI compute infrastructure, signaling the recognition of an already-present strain on resources.

ClearML’s new open source fractional GPU offering, enables toggling between smaller R&D jobs to large, demanding training jobs. ClearML now also supports multi-tenancy with partitions that offer secure and confidential computing with hard memory limitation, ensuring predictable and stable performance. Driver-level memory level monitoring ensures jobs run without impacting each other and provide increased flexibility for multiple smaller long-running jobs as well as shorter high-demand jobs.

Multiple stakeholders, such as Data Science, AI/ML Engineering, and DevOps, can run isolated parallel workloads such as graphics, model training, or inference on a single shared compute resource, resulting in increased efficiency, reduced costs, and faster time to value. Admins can create pre-configured containers for team members to self-serve and easily run on Kubernetes or bare metal.

“With our new free offering now supporting fractional capabilities for the broadest range of NVIDIA GPUs than any other company, ClearML is democratizing access to compute as part of our commitment to help our community build better AI at any scale, faster,” says Moses Guttmann, CEO and Co-founder of ClearML. “We hope that organizations that might have a mixture of infrastructure are able to use ClearML and get more out of the compute and resources they already have.”

ClearML Enterprise customers can already harness another level of GPU utilization with dynamic multi-instance GPU capabilities, as well as robust policy management that applies sophisticated logic to managing quotas and over-quotas, priorities, and job queues. Enterprise customers also currently have access to additional tools for minimizing GPU costs when leveraging cloud computing, either as a hybrid setup or spillover. In fact, ClearML Autoscaling ensures cloud compute is only used when needed and automatically spun down after a set idle period.
