MXNet - Deep Learning Framework of Choice at AWS

Amazon Web Services


MXNet is a fully-featured, flexibly-programmable and ultra-scalable deep learning framework supporting state-of-the-art deep models including convolutional neural networks (CNNs), and long short-term memory networks (LSTMs). MXNet, available through open source under the Apache-2 license, has its roots in academia and came about through the collaboration and contributions of researchers at several top universities. Founding institutions include the University of Washington and Carnegie Mellon University.
Running MXnet on AWS provides a highly scalable, flexible and fast model training experience for developers using deep learning. AWS provides Deep Learning AMIs and CloudFormation templates optimized for both CPU and GPU EC2 instances.


  • Native Distributed Training Supported: Supports distributed training on multiple CPU/GPU machines to take advantage of Cloud scale. 
  • Flexible Programming Model: Supports both imperative and symbolic programming maximizing efficiency and productivity. 
  • Portable from the Cloud to the Client: Runs on CPUs or GPUs, on clusters, servers, desktops, or mobile phones. 
  • Multi-Lingual | No Need to Learn a New Language: Support for building and training models in Python, R, Scala, Julia, and C++.  Pre-trained models can be used for prediction in even more languages like Matlab or Javascript. 
  • Performance Optimized: Optimized C++ backend engine parallelizes both I/O and computation and performs optimally no matter the language you program.


About the Company

Launched in 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) began exposing key infrastructure services to businesses in the form of web services -- now widely known as cloud computing. The ultimate benefit of cloud computing, and AWS, is the ability to leverage a new business model and turn capital infrastructure expenses into variable costs. Businesses no longer need to plan and procure servers and other IT resources weeks or months in advance. Using AWS, businesses can take advantage of Amazon's expertise and economies of scale to access resources when their business needs them, delivering results faster and at a lower cost.

Today, Amazon Web Services provides a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that powers hundreds of thousands of businesses in 190 countries around the world. With data center locations in the U.S., Europe, Singapore, and Japan, customers across all industries are taking advantage of our low cost, elastic, open and flexible, secure platform.
