Cerebras AI Model Studio

Train GPT-Style Models 8x Faster
Than Traditional Clouds at a
Fraction of the Cost

Hosted on the Cerebras Cloud @ Cirrascale, the Cerebras AI Model Studio enables
customers to train state-of-the-art Generative Pre-trained Transformer (GPT) models
on the revolutionary Cerebras CS-2 accelerator.

The Cerebras AI Model Studio

The Cerebras AI Model Studio is a simple pay by the model computing service powered by dedicated clusters of Cerebras CS-2’s and hosted by Cirrascale Cloud Services. It is a purpose-built platform, optimized for training large language models on dedicated clusters of millions of cores. It provides deterministic performance, requires no distributed computing headaches, and is push-button simple to start.

The Problem

Training large Transformer models such as GPT and T5 on traditional cloud platforms can be painful, expensive, and time consuming. Gaining access to large instances typically offered in the cloud can often takes weeks just to get access. Networking, storage, and compute can cost extra, and setting up the environment is no joke. Models with tens of billions of parameters end up taking weeks to get going and months to train.

If you want to train in less time, you can attempt to reserve additional instances – but unpredictable inter-instance latency, makes distributing AI work difficult, and achieving high performance across multiple instances challenging .

Our Solution

The Cerebras AI Model Studio makes training large Transformer models fast, easy, and affordable. With Cerebras, you have millions of cores, predictable performance, no parallel distribution headaches – all of this enables you to quickly and easily run existing models on your data or to build new models from scratch optimized for your business.

A dedicated cloud-based cluster powered by Cerebras CS-2 systems with millions of AI cores for large language models and generative AI:

  • Train 1-175 billion parameter models quickly and easily
  • No parallel distribution pain: single-keystroke scaling over millions of cores
  • Zero DevOps or firewall pain: simply SSH in and go
  • Push-button performance: models in standard PyTorch or TensorFlow
  • Flexibility: pre-train or fine-tune models with your data
  • Train in a known amount of time, for a fixed fee
