Spell machine learning platform goes on-prem

Spell, an end-to-end platform for machine learning and deep learning—covering data prep, training, deployment, and management—has announced Spell for Private Machines, a new version of its system that can be deployed on your own hardware as well as on cloud resources.

Spell was founded by Serkan Piantino, former director of engineering at Facebook and founder of Facebook’s AI Research group. Spell allows teams to create reproducible machine learning systems that incorporate familiar tools such as Jupyter notebooks and that leverage cloud-hosted GPU compute instances.

Spell emphasizes ease of use. For example, hyperparameter optimization for an experiment is a

11 tools that make Kubernetes better

Few computing platforms—even those of great power and scale—satisfy every need as-is. While Kubernetes is useful out of the box, it’s far from complete. You can always find a use case or a need where the default Kubernetes feature set falls short, such as database support, or simply ignores, such as continuous delivery.

That’s where the broader Kubernetes community comes in, with add-ons, extensions, and bonus goodies for the container orchestration framework. Here are 11 of the top Kubernetes companions we’ve found. Some will complement any Kubernetes cluster, while others address specific needs that stock Kubernetes doesn’t address.

IBM’s new CEO lays out his roadmap

Newly appointed IBM CEO Arvind Krishna helmed his first IBM Think conference this week—via streaming video, due to the ongoing global pandemic. In his keynote, he took the opportunity to reassert his belief that “hybrid cloud and AI are the two dominant forces driving digital transformation today.”

Unsurpisingly, many of the subsequent announcements at the conference hinged on hybrid cloud, enabled in large part by IBM’s $34 billion acquisition of Red Hat in 2018.

Take the technical preview of IBM Cloud Satellite. This product “extends cloud services to anywhere a client needs them, as-a-service, on-premises or at the
