Red Hat OpenShift Data Science

Accelerate artificial intelligence and machine learning adoption

Artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and deep learning (DL) have rapidly become critical for businesses and organizations as they seek to convert their data to business value.. However, as data scientists strive to build their models, their efforts are often complicated by  a lack of alignment between rapidly evolving tools, affecting productivity and collaboration among their teams, software developers, and IT operations. On-premise resource limitations can limit scalability, such as quickly provisioning hardware. Popular cloud platforms offer the desired scale and attractive tools, but often lock users in, limiting architectural and deployment choices.

Red Hat® OpenShift® Data Science is a managed cloud service offering based on the open source Open Data Hub project. Delivering integrated capabilities from upstream efforts—such as Apache Kafka, Strimzi, and Kubeflow—Open Data Hub provides an architecture for building an AI-as-a-Service platform on Red Hat OpenShift and Ceph object storage. 

With this solution, data scientists and developers can rapidly develop, train, test, and iterate ML and DL models in a fully supported sandbox environment—without waiting for infrastructure provisioning. Available as an add-on to Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated and Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS, OpenShift Data Science combines Red Hat components, open source software, and certified partner technology from Red Hat Marketplace with the public cloud hyper-scalability of Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Develop, model, experiment, and deploy more rapidly

Red Hat OpenShift Data Science lets organizations quickly deploy an integrated set of common open source and partner tools to perform AI/ML modeling. The platform makes it simpler to use hardware infrastructure without requiring time-consuming Kubernetes provisioning and management tasks. OpenShift Data Science supports rapid experimentation with user-supplied data where the model outputs are hosted on OpenShift Dedicated for integration into a customer-defined, intelligent application or exported to self-maintained environments.

This solution represents a flexible, customizable alternative to prescriptive AI/ML suites from individual cloud providers. It provides open source tools and platform technology for collaborative creation of experimental models without infrastructure concerns or cloud-specific vendor lock-in. Teams can extend the base platform with partner tools to further enhance and expand their modeling capabilities. Models can be exported in a container-ready format for consistency deploying across hybrid cloud and edge environments.

Customize your environments with popular open source and commercial tools

Red Hat OpenShift Data Science provides a subset of tools found in the upstream Open Data Hub project (Table 1). Red Hat provides regular updates to the included open source tools through the managed cloud service, removing the burden of integration and testing. Additional commercial technology partner offerings can also be added from Red Hat Marketplace.
