We are using a cloud service which provides a NVIDIA Tesla P100.

Apparently Blender does not show the GPU as a compute device:

I am using Blender 2.82. Maybe there is some experimental version that supports such a graphics card? Am i on the wrong track about that? What do you say?

Here is some system information:

I'm using Blender 2.79b rendering on the same GPU but in Google Colab, I force using GPU with a Python script.

I had some difficulties but I found that Google put some restriction on the GPU. I just had to remove libtcmalloc-minimal4 package and reinstall it from Ubuntu repositories and now every thing is okay. Something like

    sudo apt-get remove libtcmalloc-minimal4
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install libtcmalloc-minimal4
