Unlock the business value of your research with
Katonic for Academics

Our award-winning enterprise platform is now 100% free for universities and colleges. 

Image Description

Universities and academia continue to face 2 major challenges

Challenge 1

Labs do not have sophisticated tooling and standardized practices that allow researchers to access and use clusters easily.

Clusters operate at far less than full capacity without proper cluster monitoring and resource provisioning.

Researchers still rely on Slack, spreadsheets, and scrappy scripts to schedule GPU workloads.

Challenge 2

Researchers rely on time-consuming, repetitive, manual tasks to run experiments and train models. ​

Models are disorganized across multiple laptops and notebooks without a centralized model store, resulting in reproducibility errors. ​

Models, datasets, and experiments are not shared among researchers or authors, limiting collaboration. ​

Katonic for Academics

To help academic research teams tackle these challenges, we are introducing a free academic plan dedicated to faculty members and graduate students. Just as we are serving ML practitioners and enterprise customers, our goal with the new plan is to empower research teams at universities with a scalable modern workflow but with zero maintenance overheads. Katonic has been named as one of the Top Machine Learning Operations (MLOps) platforms globally in the Everest Group’s Machine Learning Operations (MLOps) Products PEAK Matrix®

“Katonic for Academics” can be a game changer.

Improve access to shared clusters and optimize resource usage

Get real-time insights and alerts on model performance and data characteristics​.​

Resource provisioning: resources are allocated dynamically across on-premise and cloud clusters based on the team’s quota policy.

Cluster management: teams can monitor the usage and status of clusters and of each node.


Katonic accelerators help learners get a taste of real-life situations.

The marketplace of accelerators offers over 200 + prebuilt models, notebooks, and apps for use cases like customer churn prediction, sales targeting, spend optimization, credit risk scoring, anti-money laundering, predictive maintenance, customer monitoring, malicious domain detection, and more.

Bring systematic approach to managing models and experiments

Experiment dashboard: track all experiments regardless of the run environment.

Model registry: manage publication-ready models in a central repository with all metadata and pipeline history.

Reproducible models: reproduce models at a click of a button and breeze with few clicks.

Enhance research productivity by modernizing legacy workflows

Advanced training: use automated model tuning and distributed training to minimize training time.

Team collaboration: share experiment results and research assets in a secure unified workspace.
