Amazon EC2 Supports Research!
I am very pleased to announce, that GraphLab large scale machine learning project is now supported by Amazon Elastic cloud (EC2), who allocated us computing time for using their cloud. This will allow us to extend compatibility with EC2 and further to scale for larger models.
I want to take this opportunity to thanks James Hammilton, VP and Distinguished Engineer in Amazon who pulled some strings, and introduced us to Kurt Messersmith, Senior Manager in Amazon Web Services who was kind enough to approve our grant request.
By the way, if you are teaching a course about EC2 or you want to apply for research grants you can apply here: http://aws.amazon.com/education/
