1. Welcome to InfinStor

InfinStor is a multi cloud Machine Learning Platform with an Enterprise grade MLflow service at its core. InfinStor includes storage enhancements for cloud storage snapshots ( InfinSnap and InfinSlice). The InfinStor Compute Engine ICE is capable of running complex Machine Learning pipelines across different clouds and different regions of a cloud.

InfinStor may be consumed in the following ways:

  • SaaS mode: The InfinStor service components reside in our AWS account and the data/compute resides in your Cloud accounts.
  • Enterprise Licence: Every aspect of InfinStor operates in your own Cloud account(s)

InfinStor provides full enterprise support for both modes of operation.

Note that in the case of the Enterprise License option, references to service.infinstor.com, mlflow.infinstor.com, mlflowui.infinstor.com, etc. should be replaced with your own instance of the service. For example, if the service is installed in your own AWS account and available at subdomain ai.acme.com, then replace mlflow.infinstor.com with mlflow.ai.acme.com
