Red Hat, Inc. announced the availability of Red Hat OpenShift Data Science as a field trial, as well as an expanded partner ecosystem focused on this new cloud service offering. As leading artificial intelligence and machine-learning (AI/ML) partners support the service, Red Hat customers are provided with a range of solutions optimized for Red Hat OpenShift, letting them select the technologies to best meet their specific machine learning needs across the open hybrid cloud and edge computing environments. Red Hat OpenShift Data Science is a cloud service offering tailored for machine learning (ML) on Red Hat OpenShift, the industry?s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform. Enabled by Kubernetes operators, Red Hat OpenShift Data Science gives enterprises greater flexibility in selecting the technologies to develop, test and deploy ML models, while removing the overhead associated with running and maintaining a production platform. As a fully-managed cloud service, Red Hat OpenShift Data Science moves operational responsibility and support to Red Hat. This gives organizations the freedom to use their chosen AI/ML tools in developing the next-generation of intelligent applications to drive valuable business insights. Several key members of Red Hat?s AI/ML partner ecosystem are now pre-integrated into the user interface dashboard, providing access to the latest in hardware and software acceleration solutions as well as tools to support the model operationalization lifecycle. This includes Intel toolkits and, planned in the near future, NVIDIA-accelerated computing support, which will enable customers to benefit from: Access to a fully-integrated model development environment, with the ability to optimize and tailor model behavior on Intel hardware, using Intel OpenVINO Pro for Enterprise; and accelerated speed to insights with the Intel oneAPI AI Analytics Toolkit, which provides data scientists with a series of tools and frameworks optimized for maximum performance on Intel-based CPUs. With these offerings from Intel, data scientists not only have integrated access to the tools and frameworks needed to build and deploy their model, but also help deliver high performance on Intel hardware. Accelerated computing support through the use of NVIDIA GPU technology, which can enable data scientists to scale their computationally expensive neural networks to large, complex architectures without sacrificing productivity. This allows data scientists to cut down the time spent on training models with minimal code changes. In addition to Intel and NVIDIA, Red Hat OpenShift Data Science includes support from several other leading AI/ML partners, including: Anaconda Commercial Edition for more secure, consistent and repeatable data science package distribution and management; IBM Watson Studiowith AutoAI to build, run, and manage AI models at scale; Seldon Deploy to simplify and accelerate deploying, managing and monitoring machine learning models, and Starburst Galaxy to unlock the value of your data by making it faster and easier to access data across the hybrid cloud.
