Latest Updates

15 May 2024

  • A new API for managing Paperspace resources is now available. The API provides:

    • A unified and predictable endpoint schema

    • Improved performance and scalability

    • Documented support for API endpoints

    The legacy Gradient and Core API endpoints will become unavailable on 15 July, 2024. To ensure your application continues to work on July 15, update your calls to reference the new API. You can submit a support ticket for questions or assistance.

14 May 2024

  • Fedora 38 has reached end of life. Per our image deprecation policy, this image is available exclusively via the API for the next 30 days before we remove it from our platform.

13 May 2024

  • We have simplified how you create Core Virtual Machines (VMs) and made the following improvements:

    • Operating system (OS) templates are auto-selected for machines. When you select a machine, only the supported templates for that machine type are shown. This pairing of machines and templates ensures that you choose a template that works with your machine.

    • Machine approval and fraud detection processes have been improved. This reduces the number of machine approval requests you make. You can request approval for a machine when selecting a machine in the Paperspace console.
