NVIDIA GPU Optimized VMIs are offered through CSP marketplaces and include all of the software required to run NVIDIA AI Enterprise containers. The VMIs require an NVIDIA AI Enterprise license in order to access NVIDIA AI Enterprise containers, models, resources, and support.


One NVIDIA AI Enterprise License is required per Cloud Instance. Details for getting started with the NVIDIA License System can be found in the NVIDIA License System Quick Start Guide. Technical licensing enforcement of cloud instances is required when leveraging the vGPU driver via the client configuration token process. Many cloud instances can leverage the Tesla Related Driver (TRD), which does not have a license enforcement process, but licensing must still be managed and maintain via the NVIDIA Licensing System (NLS).

Please refer to the Appendix for pulling and running NGC container images through the NVIDIA NGC Catalog.
