This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions, it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older, it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar. Understand more

Modal is a platform as a service (PaaS) that offers on-demand compute without the need for your own infrastructure. Modal lets you deploy machine learning models, massively parallel compute jobs, task queues and web apps. It provides a container abstraction that makes the switch from local to cloud deployment seamless, with hot reload both locally and in the cloud. It even removes deployments automatically, avoiding the need for manual clean-up, but can also make them persistent.

Modal is written by the same team that developed the first recommendation engine for Spotify. It takes care of the AI/ML stack end-to-end and can provide on-demand GPU resources, which is useful if you have particularly intensive computational needs. Whether you're working on your laptop or in the cloud, Modal just works, providing an easy and efficient way to run and deploy your projects.
