SigOpt is Now Available on AWS Marketplace

Oct. 30, 2017 — There’s no question that Amazon Web Services (AWS) has played an instrumental role in technology today. AWS has reduced the historically large equipment costs required to build and scale technology—like servers, cables, hard drives, and power supplies—allowing entrepreneurs and software engineers to reap the benefits of the cloud.

Additionally, AWS Marketplace allows organizations to quickly identify and access the tools they need to help run their business or build new products. It’s a resource companies can use to access a wide variety of software and solution partners, making it one of the premier websites for anyone interested in researching and implementing new IT and business software.

Today, SigOpt has announced the availability of SigOpt on AWS Marketplace. Now, with a single click, data scientists and researchers can access SigOpt’s powerful optimization-as-a-service platform designed to automatically fine-tune their machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) workloads. Companies will be able to deploy SigOpt, read user reviews, and reap the benefits that SigOpt can provide individuals or organizations.

Now, SigOpt’s technology is better positioned to help more companies automate parameter tuning of deep learning, reinforcement learning, or other complex pipelines. Its optimization platform helps experts automatically find the best configuration parameters for models and better solve problems ranging from algorithmic trading strategies to oil and gas exploration. If organizations are not already optimizing the configuration parameters of their models, they are missing out on performance and potential revenue gains. SigOpt is committed to providing cheaper, faster, and more effective optimization results.

“We’re excited that SigOpt is now available on AWS Marketplace. Many firms already leverage AWS as the infrastructure for their AI and ML pipelines.” said Barry Russell, General Manager of Worldwide Business Development and Operations, AWS Marketplace and Service Catalog, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “With SigOpt on AWS Marketplace it is now easier than ever for these firms to optimize and unlock the full potential of these pipelines as efficiently as possible.”
