Preview: Azure confidential VMs with NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs

Published date: November 15, 2023

We are announcing the preview of Azure confidential VMs with NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs and inviting customers to sign up. This NCC H100 v5 VM SKU is based on AMD 4th Gen EPYC processors with SEV-SNP technology paired with NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs. These VMs allow Azure customers to migrate their most sensitive GPU intensive workloads to Azure with minimal performance impact and without code changes.  

These NCC H100 v5 VM SKUs provides a hardware-based TEE that enhances guest protection against potential access by the hypervisor and other host management code to VM memory and state, thereby safeguarding against unauthorized operator access. Customers can initiate attestation requests inside these VMs to verify that the VMs are running a properly configured TEE before releasing keys and launching sensitive applications.
