Abstract

This paper introduces a platform based on open-source tools to automatically deploy and provision a distributed set of nodes that conduct the training of a deep learning model. To this end, the deep learning framework TensorFlow will be used, as well as the Infrastructure Manager service to deploy complex infrastructures programmatically. The provisioned infrastructure addresses: data handling, model training using these data, and the persistence of the trained model. For this purpose, public Cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and General-Purpose Computing on Graphics Processing Units (GPGPU) are employed to dynamically and efficiently perform the workflow of tasks related to training deep learning models. This approach has been applied to real-world use cases to compare local training versus distributed training on the Cloud. The results indicate that the dynamic provisioning of GPU-enabled distributed virtual clusters in the Cloud introduces great flexibility to cost-effectively train deep learning models.
