Take Inference to the Edge with GPU-enabled CloudBender Devices

· 2 min read

Run real-time inference workloads on NVIDIA Jetson fully managed by CloudBender™.

How It Works

Devices are edge inference nodes that contain a system-on-chip (SOC) accelerator and permanently run a single, always-on inference model. Currently supported devices include:

  • NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier
  • NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX
  • NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin
  • NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX
  • NVIDIA Jetson Orin Nano

CloudBender compatible devices can be purchased through trainML. Contact us for a quote.


Devices are only supported in Physical regions configured with a centralized storage node. If you already have compute nodes in a region configured with local storage, you must create a new region to add devices.

Obtain the device minion_id from the sticker on device or by attaching a display to the device. Select View Region from the action menu of the new device's physical region. Once on the region dashboard, click the Add button on the Devices grid. Enter a name for the new device, the minion id, and click Submit.

You will be navigated back to the region's dashboard. The new device will finalize its provisioning process, and may restart again. When the process is complete, the device will automatically enter the Active state. Once it is active, you must set the desired device configuration to run the inference model. Once you have created a Device Configuration, select Set Device Config from the action menu. Select the desired device configuration and click Select. Once the configuration is set, deploy the inference model to the device by selecting it on the grid and clicking Deploy Config on the toolbar, or select Deploy Latest Config from the device's action menu.

When the deployment is complete, the Inference Status will show runnning, and the configuration status will indicate the last date it was deployed. While running, the inference job will have access to the SoC accelerator and any video or media devices plugged into the device.

Devices incur a fixed monthly fee of 15 credits/month.
