Sign up and Use InfinStor Starter¶
This is a brief outline of the steps required to sign up for and use the InfinStor Starter with MLflow service.
- InfinStor Starter is available through the AWS Marketplace
- InfinStor Starter is basically free
- However AWS Marketplace requires us to charge at least a small fee for SaaS contract based services
- We charge 0.01 US dollar for unlimited use for a whole year, with renewal available for two additional years
- Once you subscribe to InfinStor Starter from the AWS Marketplace, you will be redirected to service.infinstor.com
- You must create an InfinStor account at this point. There is no charge for this
- The MLflow UI is available at https://MLflowui.infinstor.com/
- You must login using your InfinStor username and password
- If you want to integrate access control with your Active Directory, please email email@example.com
- The MLflow UI is also available as a tab in the Jupyterlab integration that we provide
- Install the components required for bringing up the InfinStor jupyterlab sidebar
- Bring up the MLflow UI from the sidebar.
- MLflow projects support is available from the command line
- Install the infinstor-MLflow-plugin using pip in order to use InfinStor Starter MLflow Projects
- You can use InfinStor Starter MLflow Projects to run jobs in the cloud
Since AWS Marketplace does not allow us to list free products, we charge $0.01 per year for the service, i.e. it is essentially free.
Pressing the 'Create Contract' button pops up a message showing you the $0.01 cost

At this point, AWS Marketplace will redirect you to the InfinStor service website https://service.infinstor.com/ so that you can create an InfinStor service account. Click on the 'Sign up!' link to get started. You will need to provide an email address for the confirmation code
