SageMaker is Not Flexible


SageMaker maxes out at 768 GB of RAM and 96 vCPUs per instance for large-sized instances.

The SageMaker Environment

SageMaker automatically updates environments which can trigger incompatibilities in your code. In addition, you need to squeeze any installation and compilation steps into the 5 minute limit.


SageMaker has no native SSH support. You're going to need to setup a bastion, *and* configure your tools to use it.

Vendor Lock In

Users are strongly encouraged to utilize AWS internal libraries. Departing from the SageMaker ecosystem, the code they wrote, using the AWS libraries, may become obsolete, resulting in re-work and lost efficiency.
