Imagine reducing your training time for an epoch from 30 minutes to 30 seconds, and testing many different hyper-parameter weights at the same time. Available now in public preview, Batch AI is a new service that helps you train and test deep learning and other AI or machine learning models with the same scale and flexibility used by Microsoft’s data scientists.
As our customers bring their workloads to the cloud to take advantages of scale on-demand, without the overhead of managing infrastructure, they ask if Microsoft can support them with Linux. The answer is yes.
I'm excited to announce the general availability of Azure Batch, our job scheduling and compute pool management service. In a world of rapidly evolving products and fierce competition, our goal is to deliver a service that lets you focus more on your applications and less on plumbing.
