Attention

Regardless of which supported instance you choose, a license for NVIDIA AI Enterprise is required and may not be included in the provisioned instance automatically. In most cases, you are required to bring-your-own-license (BYOL), except for on-demand “pay-as-you-go” Enterprise VMIs and Private Offers, which include a separate license process. Detailed information for licensing NVIDIA AI Enterprise in the cloud can be found in the Cloud Deployment section of the NVIDIA AI Enterprise Packaging, Pricing, and Licensing Guide.

The upcoming sections provide further details on running NVIDIA AI Enterprise with a Standard Instance.
