Deploying a GLOBAL sentiment Analysis service using DeepSparse and Akamai Connected Cloud

In the previous post, we explored how to deploy a sentiment analysis application using Neural Magic’s DeepSparse on Akamai Connected Cloud (Linode). We leveraged just two dual-core VMs and a Nodebalancer to process a pretty impressive number(40K) of movie reviews…

Easy way to deploy Linode instances across all (core) regions using Terraform

In preparations for a upcoming blog post related to running AI workloads on Akamai Connected Cloud, I needed to deploy instances in all available Linode regions. Since there’s no way that I’ll manually create a list of regions, I thought…

Sentiment analysis of 40 thousand movie reviews in 20 minutes using Neural Magic’s DeepSparse inference runtime and Linode virtual machines.

First, let me start with a word or two about DeepSparse. DeepSparse is a sparsity-aware inference runtime that delivers GPU-class performance on commodity CPUs, purely in software, anywhere. GPUs Are Not Optimal – Machine learning inference has evolved over the…

Deploying HarperDB Docker container on Linode VM using Terraform and cloud-init

This blog post is a small update to the excellent post guys from HarperDB wrote – https://www.harperdb.io/development/tutorials/deploying-harperdb-on-digital-ocean-linode-with-terraform Since Linode now support cloud-init and metadata service, I decided to extend their example by using cloud-init to do the installation of Docker…

Assigning a firewall to Linode NodeBalancer using Terraform and Cloud Manager.

Linode has finally rolled out support to assign a firewall device to a NodeBalancer (Linode’s managed load balancing service)! Assigning a firewall via CloudManager is quite easy and self-explanatory. Create a firewall, add the rules you need and simply select…

Fix Linode Windows VM IP configuration using Windows SAC console and Lish.

Today I decided to migrate my Windows VM running on Linode from Paris region to Amsterdam region. After kicking off the migration through the Cloud Manager (which took <15 minutes), my instance wasn’t responding to any network requests. Problem was…

From zero to WordPress in less than 2 minutes on Linode using cloud-init and/or Terraform

Yeah, it’s true. You can get a fully running VM with installed MySQL, Apache, PHP and WordPress configured in less than 2 minutes! 1:58 to be exact 🙂 Ok, what is cloud-init in the first place? Cloud-init is a widely…

Linode’s Metadata service is live!

Linode finally introduced an internal metadata service! <3 I’m sure all of you have been in a situation where after deploying Compute Instances, it’s almost always needed to perform additional configuration before your server is ready to do any real…

How to deploy a DHCP server in a Linode VLAN

When a VLAN is assigned to a network interface and given an IPAM address, the Compute Instance should automatically be able to communicate over that private network. This is due to Network Helper, which is enabled by default on most instances….
