  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Safari

10.2. Supported services

Red Hat OpenShift AI supports the following services:

Table 10.1. Supported services

Service NameDescription

Anaconda Professional

Anaconda Professional is a popular open source package distribution and management experience that is optimized for commercial use.

IBM Watson Studio

IBM Watson Studio is a platform for embedding AI and machine learning into your business and creating custom models with your own data.

Intel® oneAPI AI Analytics Toolkit Container

The AI Kit is a set of AI software tools to accelerate end-to-end data science and analytics pipelines on Intel® architectures.

Jupyter

Jupyter is a multi-user version of the notebook designed for companies, classrooms, and research labs.

Important

While every effort is made to make Red Hat OpenShift AI resilient to OpenShift node failure, upgrades, and similarly disruptive operations, individual users' notebook environments can be interrupted during these events. If an OpenShift node restarts or becomes unavailable, any user notebook environment on that node is restarted on a different node. When this occurs, any ongoing process executing in the user’s notebook environment is interrupted, and the user needs to re-execute it when their environment becomes available again.

Due to this limitation, Red Hat recommends that processes for which interruption is unacceptable are not executed in the Jupyter notebook server environment on OpenShift AI.

Red Hat OpenShift API Management

OpenShift API Management is a service that accelerates time-to-value and reduces the cost of delivering API-first, microservices-based applications.

OpenVINO

OpenVINO is an open source toolkit to help optimize deep learning performance and deploy using an inference engine onto Intel hardware.

Pachyderm

Use Pachyderm’s data versioning, pipeline and lineage capabilities to automate the machine learning life cycle and optimize machine learning operations.

Note

The pachd pod that Pachyderm creates intentionally does not provide terminal access from the OpenShift web console. If you try to access the terminal view for the pachd pod, you see an error. This behavior is expected.

Starburst Galaxy

Starburst Galaxy is a fully-managed service for running high-performance queries across your various data sources.

10.3. Supported packages

The latest supported notebook server images in Red Hat OpenShift AI are installed with Python by default. See the table in Options for notebook server environments for a complete list of packages and versions included in these images.

You can install packages that are compatible with the supported version of Python on any notebook server that has the binaries required by that package. If the required binaries are not included on the notebook server image you want to use, contact Red Hat Support to request that the binary be considered for inclusion.

You can install packages on a temporary basis by using the pip install command. You can also provide a list of packages to the pip install command using a requirements.txt file. See Installing Python packages on your notebook server for more information.

You must re-install these packages each time you start your notebook server.

You can remove packages by using the pip uninstall command.
