Add GPU support for Machine learning

Various machine learning backends benefit greatly by running with GPU support. We can already run Keras with a TensorFlow backend on DSx but it's CPU only which makes it unusably slow for many situations. It would be great to allow DSx to take adv...

Allow custom hardware specifications for Online Deployments such as for a Shiny app

We have users that have a need for different hardware configurations when deploying a RShiny application in their deployment space. They need high amount of memory but only need 2 cpu. We dont want them to deploy the application with a high amount...
