Intel and Microsoft Azure*

Azure marketplace recently launched the Intel Optimized Data Science VM for Linux (Ubuntu) to accelerate training and inference on Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors. This offer adds on new Python environments that contain Intel’s optimized versions of TensorFlow, MXNet and PyTorch. These optimizations leverage the Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel® AVX-512) and Intel® Math Kernel Library for Deep Neural Networks (Intel® MKL-DNN).

  • Intel optimized deep learning frameworks pre-configured and ready to use
  • Take full advantage of all the optimizations on an Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor based Azure Fv2-Series or Azure HC-Series VM instance
  • When running on an Azure F72s_v2 VM instance, these optimizations yielded an average of 7.7X speedup in training throughput across all standard CNN topologies
