The AWS Deep Learning AMIs for Ubuntu and Amazon Linux now support Amazon Elastic Inference with the latest version of TensorFlow-1.12. With this release, Amazon Elastic Inference (Amazon EI) on Deep Learning AMIs now provides EIPredictor, a new, easy-to-use Python API function for deploying TensorFlow models using EI accelerators to enable easier experimentation. With EIPredictor, developers now have have an alternative to TensorServing when running TensorFlow models on Amazon Elastic Inference. This release also adds a new Conda environment for Amazon Elastic Inference with TensorFlow on Python 3.6, an upgrade to TensorBoard 1.12.1, and an upgrade to MXNet Model Server 1.0.1.

AWS Deep Learning AMIs also support popular deep learning frameworks and interfaces including TensorFlow, MXNet, PyTorch, Chainer, Keras, and Gluon — all pre-installed and fully-configured for you to start developing your deep learning models in minutes while taking full advantage of the computational power of Amazon EC2 instances. When you activate a Conda environment, the Deep Learning AMIs automatically deploy higher-performance builds of frameworks, optimized for the EC2 instance of your choice.
