Analytics desktop in the cloud

Consistent setup across team, promote sharing and collaboration, Azure scale and management, Near-Zero Setup, full cloud-based desktop for data science.

Data science training and education

Quick, Low friction startup for one to many classroom scenarios and online courses.

On-demand elastic capacity

Ability to run analytics on all Azure hardware configurations with vertical and horizontal scaling. Pay only for what you use, when you use it.

Deep Learning with GPUs

Readily available GPU clusters with Deep Learning tools already pre-configured. Specialised Deep Learning Virtual Machines with samples and workflows.

Examples and Templates to get started

Examples, templates and sample notebooks built or tested by Microsoft are provided on the VMs to enable easy onboarding to the various tools and capabilities such as Neural Networks (CNTK, Tensorflow, etc.), Data Wrangling, R, Python, Julia and SQL Server.

Highly parallelised AI training with Azure Batch

The Data Science VM and The Deep Learning VM are fully integrated with the Azure AI training service to provide virtually infinite capacity for parallelised AI training in a scale out model.
