Vyasa Analytics

Reduces Deep Learning Costs with
Markley World-Class Infrastructure and Expertise

The Challenge

As a deep learning software and analytics company, Vyasa’s demands for computing power are much higher than the average organization. 

Embracing the cloud for flexibility and scalability would mean running all of its high-compute R&D activities on machines it didn’t own, producing an unpredictable monthly stream of costly bills. Alternatively, going with a hybrid architecture, they would be required to invest in their own hardware, as well as to find a location to store, run and manage the systems infrastructure.

“The Markley team genuinely cares about its clients — you truly have a partner in what you’re trying to achieve. Because Vyasa is working in an advanced space with cutting edge technologies, Markley has become a true extension of our team, in a place and time where we could really use that help. It would be easy to mistake a data center for a big room with lots of wires and computers in it, but really, the heart of Markley is its team of people.”


The Solution

With Markley, Vyasa has the secure, reliable lab infrastructure they need to innovate and advance what’s possible. “Doing that on our own systems at Markley versus in the cloud provides us with much greater control over our resources and the ability to iterate on our algorithms and data sets more quickly without incurring more expense," Bouton said.

Now, the Vyasa development lab is housed in the Markley data center with 2N uninterruptible power and cooling, with high performance Direct Internet Access (DIA) connectivity back to its corporate headquarters. Their direct relationship with Markley provides access to Markley’s technical teams for support and expertise across high performance computing, networking services, expansion of racks, additions of new hardware and more.

Significantly reduced cost, compared to cloud-only infrastructure

The Results

With its lab housed at Markley, Christopher is confident that Vyasa has been able to reduce its compute costs to levels they’d never otherwise see by committing to a cloud-only approach. Vyasa can continuously run R&D projects on its in-house systems for what quickly has become a more economical solution, even on relatively expensive machines.

For example, with help from their inclusion in the MassDevelopment Emerging Technology Fund, Vyasa recently purchased an NVIDIA® DGX-1™, a six-figure, high performance deep learning server. By hosting it at Markley, Vyasa has fully recouped its hardware investment in less than a year, as compared to running a similar level of computing infrastructure in the public cloud.

“Working with Markley has fundamentally changed how we function financially. We were able to fully recoup our investments in hardware in less than a year, as compared to running a similar level of computing infrastructure in the public cloud. This allows us to more rapidly expand in other areas.”
