If you don't have a powerful Nvidia GPU at home or you just don't want to go through the hassle of installing a bunch of drivers and managing dependencies, here's a really easy way to get started with invoke ai!
Just make sure to go to https://www.runpod.io/ and sign up for an account. Load up as little as $10 to get started.
Then you can simply click on our template link for invoke ai
I would recommend picking an A5000 GPU for this.
You can configure other settings to your liking, like requesting more disk space, or you can leave everything else default!
Deploy your instance with the "on-demand" option.
Go to your "My Pods" dashboard.
You may have to wait a bit for the template to download if you're the first one using on this particular server. This could take a few minutes, so please be patient!
You will know when your pod is ready when the CPU Utilization drops to 0%
Once this happens, go ahead and click on the "Connect" button
And then choose to connect via http port
You should then be directed to the invoke ai starting page
