Guideline in Migrating Microsoft Machine Learning Studio (Classic) to Azure Machine Learning (AML)

ML Studio (classic) documentation is being retired and may not be updated in the future

Please transition to using Azure Machine Learning by that date. From now through 31 August 2024, you can continue to use the existing Machine Learning Studio (classic). Beginning 1 December 2021, you won’t be able to create new Machine Learning Studio (classic) resources.

The below table summarizes the key difference between the two:

In my view, it’s more advantageous for organizations to move to the new portal and leverage the full power of cloud computing. GPU support. MLOps capability. ML Pipeline. The downside is the cost, which was free in the earlier version, but I want to capitalize on the capabilities that come with Azure ML, which are much richer in functionalities and efficient overall.

Personally, I don’t think it’s a big shift in terms of experience because data experts could still use the drag-and-drop feature in the…
