We are excited to announce the general availability (GA) of the Anyscale managed Ray platform.
We created Ray to enable every developer to effortlessly scale their AI/ML workloads from the laptop to the cloud without needing to built and manage complex infrastructure, or become a distributed systems expert. The Anyscale platform builds on that vision and brings the power of instant scaling on Ray to a much larger community.
Join our special Anyscale GA launch event with Ray creators and Anyscale founders, Robert Nishihara and Ion Stoica, for an overview and live demo.
Session highlights include:
