Docker is an open-source project that automates the deployment of application inside the software container. The container allows the developer to package up all project resources such as libraries, dependencies, assets etc. Docker is written in Go Programming language and is developed by Dotcloud. It is basically a container engine which uses the Linux Kernel features like namespaces and control groups to create containers on top of an operating system and automates the application deployment on the container.

Using Lambda Stack with python virtual environments

We're often asked how to best use Lambda Stack with a python virtual environment. You have two choices: use Lambda Stack as a way to install CUDA, CuDNN, and NVIDIA drivers; or, use Lambda Stack as a way to manage TensorFlow and PyTorch as well as CUDA, CuDNN, NVIDIA drivers. Here's how to do that:


Here's how to do it where the TensorFlow version is managed within the virtual environment:

Install Lambda Stack on Ubuntu 20.04/18.04 servers

This headless installation will work for servers running Ubuntu 20.04/18.04 without a GUI (i.e. Ubuntu 20.04/18.04 server edition). If your card has NVSwitch, you'll also need the nvidia-fabricmanager-470 package. Please check with Lambda as to the latest version of the NVIDIA drivers and then update this command accordingly.

Use Lambda Stack in a shell script, Dockerfile, Ansible file, etc.

If you want to integrate Lambda Stack installation into a script, you'll likely want to avoid all user input prompts. To use Lambda Stack in this way, you must have read and agreed to the CUDNN license.

How to update / upgrade to the latest Lambda Stack

Do this if a new version of PyTorch, TensorFlow (or any other framework) is released and you want to upgrade.

This will upgrade all packages, including dependencies such as CUDA, cuDNN, and NVIDIA drivers.
