  • GoDaddy is a global web-hosting and Cloud company
  • It is migrating its workload to AWS
  • The company will benefit from features like machine learning, analytics, etc.

Global web-hosting and Cloud company GoDaddy is migrating almost all of its workload to Amazon Web Services (AWS) as part of a multi-year transition, AWS announced on Thursday.

GoDaddy will leverage AWS services, including Machine Learning (ML), analytics, databases and containers, to innovate and accelerate the delivery of its products and services to its over 17 million customers worldwide.

“By operating on AWS, we’ll be able to innovate at the speed and scale we need to deliver powerful new tools that will help our customers run their own ventures and be successful online,” said Charles Beadnall, Chief Technology Officer at GoDaddy.

GoDaddy has been an active adopter of containerised applications and will now leverage AWS’s Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS). This service will allow GoDaddy to run several of its “Kubernetes” workload on AWS without change.

In addition, GoDaddy and AWS are working together to incorporate some of GoDaddy’s domain technology and website building products into the AWS experience to help AWS customers build better online presence.

GoDaddy has more than 75 million domain names under management. “As a large, high-growth business, GoDaddy will be able to leverage AWS to innovate for its customers around the world,” added Mike Clayville, Vice President, Worldwide Commercial Sales at AWS.

Microsoft Opens its Machine Learning Framework For All

Infer.NET was used to publish hundreds of research papers using a variety of fields, everything from information retrieval to healthcare

Global tech giant Microsoft has opened its cross-platform frameworks Infer.NET — a machine learning engine used in Office, Xbox and Azure — for one and all worldwide.

“We’re extremely excited today to open source Infer.NET on GitHub under the permissive MIT license for free use in commercial applications,” Yordan Zaykov, Principal Research Software Engineering Lead at Microsoft, wrote in a blog post on Friday.

Developed in 2014 by Microsoft’s research lab in Cambridge, Infer.NET was initially envisioned as a research tool and later in 2008 was released for academic use.

Infer.NET enables a model-based approach to machine learning. It lets users incorporate domain knowledge into their model.

The framework can then build a bespoke machine learning algorithm directly from that model.

“This means that instead of having to map your problem onto a pre-existing learning algorithm that you’ve been given, Infer.NET actually constructs a learning algorithm for you, based on the model you’ve provided,” Zaykov said.

He noted that the Infer.NET team is looking forward to engaging with the open-source community in developing. Infer.NET will become a part of ML.NET — the machine learning framework for .NET developers.

“We have already taken several steps towards integration with ML.NET, like setting up the repository under the .NET Foundation and moving the package and namespaces to Microsoft.ML.Probabilistic. Infer.NET will extend ML.NET for statistical modelling and online learning,” Zaykov said.

In 2012 Infer.NET even won a Patents for Humanity award for aiding research in epidemiology, genetic causes of disease, deforestation and asthma. (IANS)
