Machine Learning Using H20, R and MinIO

Machine Learning Using H20, R and MinIO

I’ve been working with neural networks and machine learning since the late ‘80. Yes, I’m that old. The first product I bought was California Scientific Software BrainMaker Professional. I loved that product because it got me started with neural networks. I still have it: It was a 3 layer neural network product that came with source code in

The Architect’s Guide to Using AI/ML with Object Storage

The Architect’s Guide to Using AI/ML with Object Storage

This post first appeared in The New Stack. With the constant evolution of the enterprise, machine learning and artificial intelligence have become board-level initiatives. Marketing claims aside, capabilities that seemed almost mythical a few years ago are now taken for granted as AI/ML becomes baked into every software stack and architecture. This is becoming known as AI-first architecture. In

How to Install and Configure Kubeflow with MinIO Operator

How to Install and Configure Kubeflow with MinIO Operator

Kubeflow is a modern solution to design, build and orchestrate Machine Learning pipelines using the latest and most popular frameworks. Out of the box, Kubeflow ships with MinIO inside to store all of its pipelines, artifacts and logs, however that MinIO is limited to a single PVC and thus cannot benefit from all the features a distributed MinIO brings to

Five Strata Takeaways

Five Strata Takeaways

With another Strata in the rearview mirror, it is time to reflect on what we saw and heard during the week. Strata is clearly a data science show at this point but data science is broad topic. Our perspective, as a provider of high performance object storage, is framed accordingly and we focus on the data stack more than we

Introducing Spark-Select for MinIO Data Lakes

Introducing Spark-Select for MinIO Data Lakes

When early object storage APIs were developed they focused on the efficient storage and retrieval of objects. Amazon’s success with S3 and its implementation of the robust S3 API quickly became the de facto standard for object storage in the cloud. MinIO, recognizing this, invested heavily in creating the most compliant implementation of the S3 API outside of Amazon.

Containerized data analytics at scale, with MinIO and Pachyderm

Containers running on orchestration platforms like Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, DC/OS et al. offer powerful, versatile ways to deploy applications. Containers let you deploy isolated application instances, and you can launch multiple such instances to scale up your load serving capacity. You don’t even need to worry about individual server capacities and scheduling thanks to orchestration tool, which provide
