Machine learning mega-benchmark: GPU providers (part 2)

Shiva Manne Deep Learning, Machine Learning, Open Source 12 Comments

We had recently published a large-scale machine learning benchmark using word2vec, comparing several popular hardware providers and ML frameworks in pragmatic aspects such as their cost, ease of use, stability, scalability and performance. Since that benchmark only looked at the CPUs, we also ran an analogous ML benchmark focused on GPUs.

The rise of machine learning as a discipline brings new demands for number crunching and computing power. With easily accessible and cheap hardware resources, one has to pick the right platform to run the experiments and model training on. Should you use Amazon’s AWS EC2 instances? Or go with IBM’s Softlayer, Google’s Compute Engine, Microsoft’s Azure? How about a real …
