Data Science Virtual Machine

Data Science Virtual Machine (DSVM) is an Ubuntu-based cloud server optimized for data science and machine learning projects.

The VM image includes the most popular ML tools like PyTorch, TensorFlow, Jupyter Notebook and lets you work on your data science project out of the box.

Use Cases

Data Science Virtual Machine can be used for:

  • application development:
    • chat bots;
    • recommendation services;
    • object recognition (in images or videos);
    • speech recognition and synthesis;
    • forecasting services;
  • model training;
  • data experiments.

Hardware Configuration

Minimal configuration is 2 GB RAM and 25 GB disk space.

For faster model training we recommend using the GPU Line configurations that include up to 4 GPUs.
