Installing Dotscience

This section documents various ways that you can install and use the Dotscience platform.

Dotscience SaaS

You can use the hosted version of Dotscience at There is a free account with limited run tracking, and you can also upgrade to a paid account to remove the limits.

In this mode, we host your notebooks, data, and models for you. You can attach your own compute as runners (VMs or machines for model training, which may have GPUs) and deployers (Kubernetes clusters, for running models in inference mode in production and monitoring them).

Getting your own setup

We find that after an initial evaluation of the product using the hosted SaaS version, most customers want to run Dotscience in their own cloud account or on-premises for production usage.
