Comet Introduces Kangas, An Open Source Smart Data Exploration, Analysis and Model Debugging Tool for Machine Learning

Comet | November 17, 2022

Comet, provider of the leading MLOps platform for machine learning (ML) teams from startup to enterprise, today announced a bold new product: Kangas. Open sourced to democratize large scale visual dataset exploration and analysis for the computer vision and machine learning community, Kangas helps users understand and debug their data in a new and highly intuitive way. With Kangas, visualizations are generated in real time; enabling ML practitioners to group, sort, filter, query and interpret their structured and unstructured data to derive meaningful information and accelerate model development. Data scientists often need to analyze large scale datasets both during the data preparation stage and model training, which can be overwhelming and time-consuming, especially when working on large scale datasets. Kangas makes it possible to intuitively explore, debug and analyze data in real time to quickly gain insights, leading to better, faster decisions. With Kangas, users are able to transform datasets of any scale into clear visualizations. “A key component of data-centric Machine Learning is being able to understand how your training data impacts model results and where your model predictions are wrong. “Kangas accomplishes both of these goals and dramatically improves the experience for ML practitioners.” Gideon Mendels, CEO and co-founder of Comet Putting Large Scale Machine Learning Dataset Analysis at Your Fingertips Developed with the unique needs of ML practitioners in mind, Kangas is a scalable, dynamic and interoperable tool that allows for the discovery of patterns buried deep within oceans of datasets. With Kangas, data scientists can query their large-scale datasets in a manner that is natural to their problem, allowing them to interact and engage with their data in novel ways. Noteworthy benefits of Kangas include: Unparalleled Scalability: Kangas was developed to handle large datasets with high performance. Purpose Built: Computer Vision/ML concepts like scoring, bounding boxes and more are supported out-of-the-box, and statistics/charts are generated automatically. Support for Different Forms of Media: Kangas is not limited to traditional text queries. It also supports images, videos and more. Interoperability: Kangas can run in a notebook, as a standalone local app or even deployed as a web app. It ingests data in a simple format that makes it easy to work with whatever tooling data scientists already use. Open Source: Kangas is 100% open source and is built by and for the ML community. Kangas was designed for the entire community, to be embraced by students, researchers and the enterprise. As individuals and teams work to further their ML initiatives, they will be able to leverage the full benefits of Kangas. Being open source, all are able to contribute and further enhance it as well. “Interoperability and flexibility are inherent in Comet’s value proposition, and Comet aims to expand on that value through open source contributions,” added Mendels. “Kangas is a continuation of all of our efforts, and we couldn’t wait to get its capabilities into the hands of as many data scientists, data engineers and ML engineers as possible. We believe by open sourcing it, Comet can help teams get the most out of their ML projects in ways that have not been possible previously.” Kangas is available as an open source package for any type of use case. It will be available under Apache License 2 and is open to contributions from community members. About Comet Comet provides an MLOps platform that data scientists and machine learning teams use to manage, optimize, and accelerate the development process across the entire ML lifecycle, from training runs to monitoring models in production. Comet’s platform is trusted by over 150 enterprise customers including Affirm, Cepsa, Etsy, Uber and Zappos. Individuals and academic teams use Comet’s platform to advance research in their fields of study.

Komprise Hypertransfer Migrates Data to the Cloud 25x Faster

Komprise | December 14, 2022

Komprise, the leader in analytics-driven unstructured data management and mobility, today announced the availability of Komprise Hypertransfer for Elastic Data Migration, which accelerates data transfer to the cloud while strengthening cloud security. As enterprises migrate more file data to the cloud, IT organizations face many barriers which cause migrations to often take weeks to months. SMB workloads such as user data, electronic design automation (EDA) and other multimedia workloads contain lots of small files and are a particular challenge since the protocol requires many back-and-forth handshakes that increase administrative traffic over the network. Komprise Hypertransfer optimizes cloud data migration performance by minimizing the WAN roundtrips using dedicated channels to send data, mitigating the SMB protocol issues. According to recent tests performed by Komprise, Hypertransfer improves data transfer rates across the WAN by 25x over other alternatives for SMB datasets with predominantly small files. Komprise already delivers 27 times faster performance for NFS migrations. Komprise Hypertransfer also strengthens security and defense against ransomware by not accessing cloud file storage over the network during data migrations, since data transfers from source to target over private channels. “Enterprises need to move file data to the cloud to cut costs and unlock strategic value. “With Komprise Hypertransfer you get measurably faster SMB cloud data migrations—shaving weeks off migration timelines while minimizing the chance for errors or data loss. Komprise Hypertransfer makes cloud migrations feasible.” Kumar Goswami, CEO and co-founder of Komprise Komprise Elastic Data Migration is a software as a service (SaaS) solution available with the Komprise Intelligent Data Management platform or as a standalone product. Designed to be fast, easy and reliable with elastic scale-out architecture and an analytics-driven approach, it is the market leader in file and object data migrations. Komprise Elastic Data Migration ensures preservation of data integrity with access control propagation and file-level data integrity checks such as SHA-1 and MD5 checks with audit logging. With the latest release, Komprise administrators also have more flexible migration configuration settings to handle read-only sources and sources with access-time tracking disabled. Additionally, customers can now enable and disable data integrity checks to either ensure data accuracy or improve migration performance. About Komprise Komprise is a provider of unstructured data management and mobility software that frees enterprises to easily analyze, mobilize, and monetize the right file and object data across clouds without shackling data to any vendor. With Komprise Intelligent Data Management, you can cut 70% of enterprise storage, backup and cloud costs while making data easily available to cloud-based data lakes and analytics tools.
