ML Runtimes Version 2021.04

Major features and updates for ML Runtimes.

Version 2021.04

New features

  • RAPIDS Runtimes - The RAPIDS Edition Runtimes are built on top of community built RAPIDS docker images. The RAPIDS suite of software libraries relies on NVIDIA CUDA primitives for low-level compute optimization, but exposes that GPU parallelism and high-bandwidth memory speed through user-friendly Python interfaces.

Fixed issues

The following fixed issus relate only to RAPIDS Runtimes.

  • DSE-13743 - Idle JupyterLab sessions are now ended after around IDLE_MAXIMUM_MINUTES. (See ML Runtimes Environment Variables Environment Variables).
  • DSE-14979 - matplotlib figures restore the styling used in engine:13 (MLRuntimes 2020.11 used the matplotlib defaults)
  • DSE-12881 - For Python runtimes, py4j is now installed.
  • Security fixes, python library version updates
