Google Cloud announced the launch of preemptible GPUs. GPUs come at a significant discount — in this case, 50 percent. But in return, Google may shut them down at any point if it needs these resources.
Google will charge $0.22 per GPU hour for the K80 and $0.73 for the P100. Google shutting down your VM before your GPU workload is done (or before you get your 30-second warning for the GPU shutdown).
Google’s move today comes only a few months after the company already significantly dropped its prices for non-preemptible GPUs.
