ClearML Allies With Carahsoft To Provide Its MLOps Platform To Government Agencies

Under the deal ClearML’s software will be sold through Carahsoft’s reseller network and government contract vehicles to state and federal government customers.

ClearML has struck a deal with government solutions provider Carahsoft Technology through which Carahsoft will distribute ClearML’s AI and machine learning platform to federal and state government agencies through Carahsoft’s reseller network and government contracts.

Executives at the two companies said the alliance will boost ClearML’s presence in the public sector and help government agencies adopt an AI/ML solution that addresses their needs for machine learning operations (MLOps) and generative AI technology.

“Our partnership with ClearML reflects our dedication to providing cutting-edge AI and ML solutions for government agencies,” Michael Adams (pictured), Carahsoft program executive for AI solutions, said in a statement. “By leveraging ClearML’s capabilities across our reseller network, we’re equipping government entities to operate more efficiently and effectively in the digital age.”

ClearML, based in San Francisco, provides what it calls an “end-to-end platform for continuous machine learning.” The MLOps platform includes a comprehensive portfolio of tools used by data scientists, data engineers, DevOps managers, machine learning engineers and product managers to develop, train, deploy, monitor and manage AI/ML models and systems.

Under the agreement, Carahsoft, headquartered in Reston, Va., will serve as ClearML’s Master Government Aggregator, making the company’s software available to the public sector through Carahsoft’s reseller partners and Information Technology Enterprise Solutions – Software 2 (ITES-SW2) and National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) ValuePoint contracts.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We are pleased to partner with Carahsoft to deliver our end-to-end AI Platform to Government agencies to help them build AI in the most complex and demanding environments,” said Moses Guttmann, ClearML co-founder and CEO, in a statement. “We look forward to leveraging Carahsoft’s advanced capabilities and extensive partner ecosystem to market our software to the public sector.”

The companies said the partnership will help government agencies speed up their adoption of generative AI and accelerate their MLOps and large language model operations (LLMOps) development lifecycles.

By using ClearML for Enterprise, government agencies can turn ML models into enterprise-grade production systems that run reliably and automate their AI/ML pipelines, from data ingestion to the generation of business insights, ClearML and Carahsoft said in the announcement of the partnership. They can deploy on virtual private cloud or on-premises to “ensure the highest standards of security, customize security policies and retain full control of their own internal data and intellectual property.”

“Our modular, open architecture supports on-premises, cloud, hybrid and air-gapped environments for maximum flexibility and frictionless integrations,” Guttmann said. “ClearML’s unified platform is flexible, open source and vendor- and cloud-agnostic, allowing Carahsoft customers to utilize the full platform alone or with their preferred tools for addressing machine learning operations, large language model operations and generative AI use cases at scale within their agencies.”
