Leveraging previous trends, such as the NVIDIA A100 in Liftr Insights data, can provide insight into what can be expected.
AUSTIN, Texas, March 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Liftr Insights, a pioneer in market intelligence driven by unique data, reveals possible trends with NVIDIA. In particular, there are signals about when and where it may first appear in public clouds.
"The Hopper H100 is hot! We get a lot of questions from our clients about when, if, and where they will see it," says Tab Schadt, CEO of Liftr Insights. "We can show them trends with past deployments to give clues about more current items."
For example, the most recent generation of accelerator from NVIDIA, including its A10 and A100 GPUs, had a similar announcement and wasn't seen in public clouds until November 2020, roughly six months after the announcement. Today that generation accounts for over 18% of accelerated instance types.
Why is the appearance in public clouds important to investors and marketing intelligence analysts?
"It's where the rubber meets the road," says Schadt. "It's a lot of talk until they are being used. Being used by cloud providers has become a strong measure of success."
The initial sighting of an instance is important. Also important is the subsequent growth. Liftr data show that while certain clouds deployed some instances (such as the A100), most of the growth took up to a year to manifest after the initial introduction. That expansion of types and into other regions provides signals about the adoption rate, interest, and willingness of the clouds to further invest. Their investment mirrors the interest in the larger market.
"Liftr data tells us that they don't always invest beyond a few types at a few regions," says Schadt. "That provides helpful signals to investors seeking signs of life and success."
So, while the first sighting of the H100 in the public clouds will be important, watching the growth from that point forward provides even more valuable information to those making bets on NVIDIA, GPUs in general, or semiconductors as a whole.
