With ever changing data and customer signals continuous training and retraining can incur higher costs, especially on GPUs for deep learning models.

In AzureML, Microsoft has heard this concern loud and clear, and we want to share some tips to manage your costs and spend your budget wisely.

Come learn about the latest updates to AMLcompute including some tips on saving costs.

A critical characteristic of cloud native architectures it the ability to dynamically scale and support massive numbers of users, events, and requests on these distributed applications and teams.

Serverless can help in these challenges without having to worry about infrastructure or even an entire application.

Watch this video to see how does serverless fit into the plan for cloud native apps.

This video posted by Microsoft has an interesting look at the challenges holding companies back from digital transformation in the cloud era.

What if we could store data in such a way that we never had to worry about quality loss or degradation? Microsoft Partner Deputy Lab Director Ant Rowstron shares his thoughts on redesigning the datacenter for a cloud-centric world. An ordinary piece of glass could have an extraordinary impact on the ways in which we store data and preserve collective memories. Using silica glass presents an energy efficient, sustainable and nearly indestructible method of data storage that could change the way we preserve our history, movies and music and more.

In case you haven’t noticed it, we are in the middle of an AI boom. ML Engineers and Data Scientists are among the hottest job titles right now.

What is behind all this innovation? Is it breakthroughs in AI research? Yes. But there’s a more fundamental reason that AI is taking off right now: the cloud.  Yes, the cloud.

Cloud computing puts massive amounts of compute and storage at just about anyone’s fingertips. That has unleashed a lot more brainpower and innovation.

As these barriers to entry come down, companies and hobbyists around the world have started experimenting with machine learning and AI, exploring the possibilities and pushing the boundaries of what it can do. Much of this research has been shared with the wider community under open source licenses. A key example of is TensorFlow™, a machine learning library developed internally by Google and shared freely with the rest of the world.

.NET Rocks has a great interview with Dan Rosanova, product owner for Azure’s messaging services including Event Grid, Hybrid Connections, Event Hubs, and Service Bus.

Event-driven architecture in Azure! Carl and Richard talk to Dan Rosanova about Azure Event Grid, built to power event-driven and serverless apps in Azure. Dan talks about how Event Grid picks up where WebHooks leave off, providing simpler connectivity between a variety of event streams and routing to different event consumers. The conversation also digs into the broader concepts of event-driven architecture, using queuing and subscription patterns to build loose-coupled, highly scalable and reliable applications. This is architecture perfect for the cloud!
