Increased Compute Power and Speed for KantanMT Members


Monday, 3 February, 2014

KantanMT is pleased to announce that it has upgraded the KantanMT cloud with faster and more powerful servers – which means that members of KantanMT.com can train KantanMT engines quicker at no additional monthly costs.

Tests carried out by KantanMT technicians show a 30% decrease in training time for medium sized engines of 11-15million words, reducing the training time from 5.5 hours to 4 hours.

The KantanMT cloud is based on Amazon cloud infra-structure. This performance upgrade means existing servers have been replaced with more modern and much faster Amazon C3 servers. C3 servers are the latest generation of Amazon compute-optimized instances, providing the highest performing processors which are ideal for low latency networking and high compute capacity applications like Statistical Machine Translation.

"Upgrading our servers to the latest Amazon compute-optimized systems" ,said Luke Curran, Site-Reliability Engineer, "is a real win for our members. Now they can build, improve and deploy production ready KantanMT systems quicker than before – saving time and more importantly at no extra cost."

About AWS C3 Instances

Each virtual CPU (vCPU) on C3 instances is a hardware hyper-thread from a 2.8 GHz Intel Xeon E5-2680v2 (Ivy Bridge) processor allowing users to benefit from the latest generation of Intel processors. C3 instances support Enhanced Networking that delivers improved inter-instance latencies, lower network jitter and significantly higher packet per second (PPS) performance.
