    Quantitative Development - Financial Services

Seminal Development in Python

  • December 23, 2020
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

Saturn Cloud has opened an entirely new door of opportunities for both the average quantitative developer and the deep learning expert.

At my company, I have been able to explore multiple new avenues for alpha generation that would have been unfeasible prior to the scale and speed introduced by Saturn.

I look forward to seeing the array of new applications developed as Saturn fuses the rapid development speed of Python with the raw power of distributed GPU computing while trivializing DevOps in the process.

Seamless transition from local to cluster thanks to SaturnCloud

  • October 01, 2020
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

I used Saturn Cloud to run an NLP pipeline that I had started building locally (AWS t2.2xlarge) using Python (Jupyter notebooks), Dask, and SciSpacy, but which I was beginning to outgrow. Moving the code to SaturnCloud was quite painless -- all I had to do was to switch out the distributed Dask scheduler with the one provided by SaturnCloud, and re-point to S3 instead of local disk for my data. I would also like to thank the Saturn Cloud engineers, they are very professional and responsive, and without their timely help, my project would have taken much longer than it did. SaturnCloud also offers GPU machines for use with RAPIDS, and offers a Jupyter Lab environment as well. If you are using Dask and need to scale out, Saturn Cloud is a great way to do it without having to invest and set up your own cluster.


Great Product

In my opinion, this is the most best cloud hosted jupyter solution out there. The flexibility of scaling up and down as needed is great, as well as the seamless Dask integration. Not to mention the very responsive support team!


Easy way to run Dask and speed up model training

You get an integrated Jupyter Lab + Dask cluster management environment, which makes it straightforward to parallelize model training and get a big speedup. Collaboration is built-in as well.


When you absolutely, positively need to parallelize all the data

Dask is a very powerful library that allows for parallel execution of python code across essentially arbitrary compute resources. I've used dask previously on a smaller scale for things like out-of-memory processing of very large dataframes too big to fit into ram on a respectable workstation.

Dask can take almost any job and make it as much faster as you want, depending on the number of processing nodes and their network connections, and your ability to create, debug, and maintain a distributed dask cluster. The latter of these can be quite a painful challenge to overcome.

We are very happy with the service that Saturn provides as they solve both of these issues at once. Their distributed client can autoscale the number of nodes in its cluster using whatever ec2 instance type thats needed and it plays very nicely cuda, which can be quite tricky (frustrating) to properly configure.

Executing the same code across multiple nodes equipped with their own cpu/gpu/ram is what makes a supercomputer super. Saturn essentially makes it convenient to rent a python-based supercomputer with whatever desired specifications limited only by the hardware available on aws and your vpc quota.

Low maintenance, high performance

Before Saturn, I wasted a ton of time trying to manage my team's JupyterHub. What began as a fun little project quickly turned into a maintenance nightmare. Saturn eliminated all the hassle. The environment just works. Within minutes we can go from one small, basic instance to multiple 64-core servers crunching big data. What's even more exciting is Saturn keeps getting better. New and useful features keep showing up, making it easier for my team to do great work. I'm looking forward to working with Saturn for a long time to come!


Fast Setup, Easy to Use

I used Saturn Cloud for a Machine Learning project that trained a network intrusion classier using PCAP data. In a few minutes I was coding in a jupyter notebook without having to worry about data privacy, and collaboration was simple. The ease of setup and computational power available make this a great collaboration tool, and I will definitely be using again.


Puts enterprise level power in the hands of a team of academics

I'm a data scientist working with a team of marine chemists on a series of peer review journal articles. SaturnCloud made getting them set up and going a snap.

We now have computational power equivalent to that I have used at a Fortune 50 company at a tiny fraction of the cost and with a much faster time to get up and going.

We would have used SaturnCloud for the built in collaboration tools even if we didn't need the computational power. Versioning is easy, even for people who have no experience at all with Git.

We have moved our analytics from a hodgepodge of Matlab, Excel spreadsheets and statistics software to a reproducible pipeline in Python.


Super easy set up on AWS + Dask in one click

  • January 09, 2020
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

I was surprised at how easy it was to get Saturn up and running via the AWS marketplace. It took me about 10 minutes from subscribing -> setting up -> email with user admin password -> spinning up a Jupyter Notebook. I'd imagine the value here is Dask and it was cool to see how easy it was to start up a Dask Cluster to be used for a Jupyter Notebook instance. I'm excited to start moving some of my local projects onto Saturn Cloud's AWS instance because I used to worry about having my data in their public cloud, but now know I have the privacy and security of my own VPC + can use Dask easily for the projects with larger datasets.
