A leader in open source AI solutions, H2O.ai is used by more than 14,000 organizations around the world.
"Through Microsoft Azure Marketplace, customers around the world can easily find, buy, and deploy partner solutions they can trust, all certified and optimized to run on Azure," said Sajan Parihar, Director of the Microsoft Azure Platform, said in H2O.ai’s statement.
"We're happy to welcome H2O and H2O Driverless AI to the growing Azure Marketplace ecosystem."
Platforms such as H2O Sparkling Water and H2O Driverless AI can now be leveraged by Azure users, while H2O’s existing customers can benefit from the highly scalable and secure Azure cloud platform in tandem with H2O.ai’s products.
Sri Ambati, H2O.ai’s CEO and founder, said:
"The winning combination of H2O.ai best-in-class products with Microsoft Azure private and public cloud infrastructure makes it faster, cheaper and easier to monetize data for enterprises.”
“With H2O and Driverless AI in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace we bring powerful AI capabilities to the fingertips of data science and machine learning teams worldwide."
H2O.ai’s open source platforms incorporate in-memory machine learning capabilities along with linear scalability, integrable with most common statistical and machine learning algorithms.
Its Driverless AI platform enables data scientists to automate various processes, speeding through tasks that could take months in mere minutes.
H2O.ai’s statement highlighted ArmadaHealth, a health data science and services firm that uses both H2O.ai and Azure software.
Armada successfully built an automated, scalable, and data-focused platform by leveraging the combined capabilities of Azure and H2O.ai that is capable of managing the significant data used by healthcare physician recommendation services.
