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.
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 (PYTorch, Tensorflow, etc.), Data Wrangling, R, Python, Julia, and SQL Server.
Integrated with Azure Machine Learning
Use the pre-installed AzureML SDK and CLI to submit distributed training jobs to scalable AzureML Compute Clusters, track experiments, deploy models, and build repeatable workflows with AzureML pipelines. In addition, the Data Science VM can be used as a compute target for training runs and AzureML pipelines.
Comprehensive security and compliance, built in
Microsoft invests more than $1 billion annually on cybersecurity research and development.
We employ more than 3,500 security experts who are dedicated to data security and privacy.
