Windows Data Science Virtual Machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using windows data science virtual machines for exploratory analysis and data modelling in out test environments.

    We have a doubt whether these machines can be scaled up for production environment also. What kind of support microsoft provides for DSVM's running in production environment.

  • Hi,

    The Data Science Virtual Machine is designed for data exploration, model development, model validation, and related activities.

    By "production environment", I assume you mean something like creating a REST API from a model, or large-scale batch scoring, or using the trained model in some other capacity. The DSVM is not designed for these types of production uses and is not a hardened environment. We recommend that you use Azure Machine Learning Studio, Azure Machine Learning Services, Machine Learning Server, or another product that is specifically designed for production use. These solutions will provide the security, scale, and support needs you are looking for.
