  • You want a flexible platform tool that can run from a single workstation to a large Kubernetes cluster.
  • You need powerful integrated security features.
  • You want to run automated checks on deployed models.
  • You want to automate machine learning model training.
  • You want to track logs of production ML models deployed in Docker containers.
  • You want to define triggers and criteria for tasks or workflows to highlight anomalies or inefficiencies.
  • You want a rich plug-in ecosystem.

Watch out

  • Requires adaption through plug-ins to be suitable for MLOps workflows.
