Domino Data Lab Releases Hybrid MLOps Architecture

Domino Data Lab, a provider of an enterprise MLOps platform, announced its Nexus hybrid Enterprise MLOps architecture that allows companies to scale, control and orchestrate data science work across different compute clusters — in different geographic regions, on-premises and even across multiple clouds.

Despite the attention paid to cloud migration, concerns over cost, security and regulations compel a majority of enterprises to adopt AI infrastructure strategies that straddle on-premises data centers and the cloud. Sixty-six percent of IT decision-makers have invested in hybrid support for AI workload development, Forrester Consulting found, and 91% plan to do so within two years.

Previewed at Domino’s Rev 3 conference, the Nexus architecture enables Enterprise MLOps for this reality. It delivers the portability and cost management for AI development and deployment that enterprises require, and the flexibility that data science teams need, to accelerate breakthrough innovations at scale.

“Though the shift to cloud is on, a growing number of enterprises have some type of on-premises and cloud-based architecture currently in place,” said Melanie Posey, research director for Cloud & Managed Services Transformation at 451 Research, a part of S&P Global Market Intelligence. “The reality is that cost optimization persists as an ongoing issue for both cloud veterans and cloud beginners.”

Nexus is a highly scalable hybrid Enterprise MLOps platform architecture delivering enterprises the cost benefits of on-premises infrastructure and the flexibility to scale to the cloud using a single control point. Customers gain maximum cost optimization by leveraging owned on-premises NVIDIA GPUs and the ability to move workloads to cloud-based GPUs when additional capacity is needed – all without sacrificing reliability, security or usability.

“Enterprise data science and IT organizations are consistently asking for more infrastructure flexibility, to optimize compute spend, data security, and avoid vendor lock-in,” said Nick Elprin, CEO and co-founder of Domino Data Lab.” Our Nexus architecture will help our customers unleash data science while future-proofing their infrastructure investments.”

Domino already has begun the development of Nexus with NVIDIA as a launch partner, an effort that includes specific solution architectures validated for NVIDIA technologies, with a release targeted for later this year.

Today, enterprise IT teams can learn how to scale data science workloads by taking a free, hands-on lab that includes the Domino Enterprise MLOps Platform and the NVIDIA AI Enterprise software suite, accessed on NVIDIA LaunchPad.

To enable more competitive advantages through AI-enabled use cases, Domino has also joined the NVIDIA AI Accelerated program, which enables software and solution partners to leverage the NVIDIA AI platform and its expansive libraries and SDKs to build accelerated AI applications for customers.

Domino collaborates with NVIDIA on streamlining the development, deployment and management of GPU-trained models across a variety of computing platforms, from on-premises infrastructure to edge devices, leveraging Domino and the NVIDIA AI platform, which includes NVIDIA AI Enterprise and NVIDIA Fleet Command.

Hybrid MLOps is a continuation of Domino’s vision to design the most innovative, flexible solutions – balancing customer needs for the most effective data science work.

“Enterprises are looking for AI solutions that deliver on performance and costs, with a strategy that aligns with their IT policies and practices,” said Manuvir Das, vice president of Enterprise Computing at NVIDIA. “NVIDIA’s collaboration with Domino Data Lab provides customers a powerful hybrid MLOps solution with the flexibility required to maximize productivity throughout the AI development and deployment lifecycle.”
