Chapter 9. Enabling GPU support in OpenShift Data Science

Optionally, to ensure that your data scientists can use compute-heavy workloads in their models, you can enable graphics processing units (GPUs) in OpenShift Data Science. To enable GPUs on OpenShift, you must install the NVIDIA GPU Operator. As a prerequisite to installing the NVIDIA GPU Operator, you must install the Node Feature Discovery (NFD) Operator. For information about how to install these operators, see GPU Operator on OpenShift.


The NVIDIA GPU Add-on is no longer supported. Follow the instructions in this chapter to install the NVIDIA GPU Operator instead. Before you install the NVIDIA GPU Operator, if your deployment has the NVIDIA GPU Add-on installed, use OpenShift Cluster Manager to uninstall the NVIDIA GPU Add-on from your cluster.
