Latitude.sh command-line interface

Introducing lsh, the Latitude.sh CLI

February 2, 2024

The Latitude.sh command-line interface, lsh, is now available!

The CLI brings Latitude.sh straight to your terminal: from auditing to provisioning, lsh makes it easy to retrieve data about your infrastructure and perform a variety of key actions.

With a simple command, you can quickly check out available plans, get information about your servers, assign a server to a virtual network, and scale your infrastructure up or down by adding or deleting servers, projects, API keys, SSH keys and VLANs. Getting started with the CLI is as easy as installing it and adding your API token. For more information about it, including the full list of commands and examples, click on the link below.

Check out the CLI docs →

Our CLI is fully open source and we'll improve it based on your contributions. Go to the project repo and give us your feedback.

Latitude.sh Launchpad Beta

Announcing Latitude.sh Launchpad

January 17, 2024

Today we are excited to announce that Latitude.sh Launchpad is now in public beta. Launchpad is a container-based GPU cloud for model fine-tuning and inference.

Our goal is to do as much of the heavy lifting as possible to give developers the tools they need to build on and serve open-source AI.

Sign up for the beta today →

We provision the containers directly on bare metal, which means your container's resources are fully dedicated. All containers are powered by 16 CPUs, 185 GB of RAM, 1 TB of NVMe Storage, and a single GPU, which you can choose from the two options available in our beta:

  • NVIDIA's H100 (80 GB vRAM)

  • NVIDIA's L40S (48 GB vRAM)

Multi-GPU containers and more GPU options will be available soon. Check out the docs →

Improvements & fixes

December 11, 2023
  • API version 2023-06-01: Version 2023-06-01 of the API is now stable. Version 2022-07-18 has been marked as deprecated and support will be removed in June 2024. This API introduces breaking changes. Please review them on the API changelog.

  • Dashboard updates: The sidebar has been updated to provide a simplified navigation experience. Pages Metal and Accelerate have been merged into a single page called Servers. This page now has a native filter called GPU Servers.

  • User invite email: Invited users will now receive an email when they are added to a team.

  • Private Management IPs: The private IPv4 IPs that come with your instance don't have a purpose unless you are using Remote Access. They have been removed from API responses and the dashboard to make the information available more relevant to your day-to-day operations.

  • GitHub authentication: We have added the ability to sign in using your GitHub account.

Reserved monthly billing

Save on your bill with On Demand Monthly

December 7, 2023

We announced hourly billing earlier this year to remove the friction of getting started with Latitude.sh. It is great when you want to run PoCs or to quickly scale up and down. For predictable workloads, it is often better to have consistent, linear pricing for your resources.

Today, we are adding the ability for you to choose between hourly and monthly billing when deploying a new server. With monthly billing you save 5% compared to the hourly rate.

The same project can have both hourly and monthly servers. You choose how to be billed at the server level, giving you a lot of flexibility when building your infrastructure.

Support center

Support center now available to all customers

October 16, 2023

All customers can now create and track support cases directly from the Latitude.sh dashboard.

Our newly launched Support Center empowers you to raise support tickets, monitor their progress, and interact with messages from our dedicated Support team.

Tickets created through the Support Center can be viewed by other team members so you can easily share the context of your support cases with your team.

The Support Center is available on the Support link on the top-right side of the page.

Latitude.sh g3.large.x86 A100 GPU instance

Introducing the g3.large.x86

October 5, 2023

Today, we are excited to introduce a new GPU server: the g3.large.x86.

This instance is powered by NVIDIA's highly-regarded A100 GPU, providing a level of compute power comparable to the g3.medium.x86, but with the superior compatibility characteristics of the A100 GPU.

The g3.large.x86 is a great option for workloads that particularly benefit from the A100 capabilities. The GPUs are connected via PCIe and paired through NVLink, ensuring high-speed data transfer and dedicated, non-virtualized performance for your workloads.

Billing Usage and invoice improvements

September 14, 2023

Billing usage and a streamlined invoice are now available.

  • Billing Usage: real-time resource usage information is now available in Project → Usage → Billing. From there, you will find detailed information about each resource, when it was added to your account, and the cost accrued. The page also shows when your next invoice is due.

  • Preview upcoming invoices: When you go to Settings & Billing → Billing, you will find a list of all your projects, their current usage, and the date each project will be invoiced.

  • Invoice improvements: If you had servers that belonged to the same plan, your invoices would group these servers into a single line item. For improved visibility, each server now has its own line item in the invoice. This lets you see detailed usage for each compute resource right from invoices.

Latitude.sh Cloud Gateway

Improvements and Fixes on Latitude.sh

Improvements and fixes

July 19, 2023
  • Reserved instances self-serve: You can now create Reserved projects from the dashboard and API. This allows deploying reserved instances and resources without talking to our sales team. Use the `provisioning_type` attribute to create Reserved projects from the API.

  • Improved IP Addresses page: The IP Addresses page has been redesigned to show more information about the Management and Additional IPs assigned to your team. If you use the API, the `/ips` endpoint has been enriched with all the necessary data to make managing IPs easier.

  • Create server page: We have redesigned the create server page to make finding the perfect instance easier. You now select the instance before choosing the location you want it deployed. This avoids going through several locations to find the instance you want.

  • New API version now in beta: Version 2023-06-01 is now in beta. The new version removes deprecated attributes from the current version and introduces a new format for the `id` attribute. The new ID format is fully backward compatible with the old one. The new API version also improves complex endpoints such as `GET /plans`. To test the latest version, the `API-Version: 2023-06-01` on your request Header.

Out-of-band

Quickly access the serial console with Out-of-band

July 11, 2023

You can now access your server's Serial Console over SSH if it becomes unreachable over SSH. Out-of-band is the easiest method to start a recovery process for your instance.

Out-of-band is the equivalent of the Console feature found in most public cloud providers. Latitude.sh's Out-of-band feature runs in a secure, isolated environment, requires no agents or virtualization and is available in all locations for all instances.
