Cloud Processing?


#1

Is it possible to use cloud pricessing such as Paperspace with WebODM?


#2

Absolutely! We built WebODM with a cloud setup in mind. Just remember that the current pipeline does not use GPUs (some people are working to improve this), so don’t spend money for a GPU instance.


#3

Thanks Piero. So focus on RAM memory rather than GPU then? Looking forward to news about your Lightning Processing Network


#4

Yes, RAM and # of CPU cores.


#5

Be aware that Paperspace does not currently expose the virtualization features of the processor to their VM’s.

This might be a problem if you are wanting to use Docker.

I tried and it would not work. I put a ticket in and they said they currently don’t support it but will in the future.


#6

So forget Paperspace and wait for WebODM’s own Lightning Network?
