Simplifying AI and HPC Workflows

A container is a portable unit of software that combines the application and all its dependencies into a single package that is agnostic to the underlying host OS, removing the need to build complex environments and simplifying the application development-to-deployment process.

The NVIDIA® NGC™ catalog contains a host of GPU-optimized containers for deep learning, machine learning, visualization, and high-performance computing (HPC) applications that are tested for performance, security, and scalability.

For Data Scientists, Researchers, and Developers

Develop Faster with Containers

NGC containers allow you to focus on application development instead of building the environment needed to run your applications.

  • Diverse set of containers spanning a multitude of use cases
  • Built-in libraries and dependencies for easy compiling of custom applications
  • Faster training with Automatic Mixed Precision (AMP) and minimal code changes
  • Reduced time to solution by scaling up from single-node to multi-node systems
  • Extremely portable, allowing you to develop on the cloud, on premises, or at the edge
NGC containers allow you to focus on your research & development.

For Machine Learning Engineers and IT

NNGC containers can run on-premise, in the cloud, or at the edge.

Seamlessly Deploy to Production

The containers are tested on various platforms and architectures, enabling seamless deployment on a wide variety of systems and platforms.

  • Flexible to run on bare metal, virtual machines (VMs), and Kubernetes, including various architectures such as x86, ARM, and IBM Power
  • Highly versatile with support for various container runtimes such as Docker, Singularity, cri-o, and containerd
  • Enterprise-ready with containers scanned for common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs)
  • Backed by optional enterprise support to troubleshoot issues for NVIDIA-built software


NVIDIA-built containers are updated monthly and third-party software is updated regularly to deliver the features needed to extract maximum performance from your existing infrastructure and reduce time to solution.
