Migrating from Amazon SageMaker Studio Classic

When you open Amazon SageMaker Studio, the web-based UI is based on the chosen default experience. Amazon SageMaker currently supports two different default experiences: the Amazon SageMaker Studio experience and the Amazon SageMaker Studio Classic experience.

Note
  • For existing customers that created their accounts before November 30, 2023, Studio Classic may be the default experience. You can enable Studio as your default experience using the Amazon Command Line Interface (Amazon CLI) or the Amazon SageMaker console. For more information about Studio Classic, see Amazon SageMaker Studio Classic.

  • For customers that created their accounts after November 30, 2023, we recommend using Studio as the default experience because it contains various integrated development environments (IDEs), including the Studio Classic IDE, and other new features.

When you migrate your default experience from Studio Classic to Studio, you don't lose any features, and can still access the Studio Classic IDE within Studio. For information about the added benefits of the Studio experience, see Amazon SageMaker Studio.

To migrate, you must update an existing domain. Migrating an existing domain from Studio Classic to Studio requires three distinct phases:

  1. Migrate the UI from Studio Classic to Studio: One time, low lift task that requires creating a test domain to ensure Studio is compliant with your organization's network configurations before migrating the existing domain's UI from Studio Classic to Studio.

  2. Migrate custom images and lifecycle configuration scripts: Medium lift task for migrating your custom images and LCC scripts from Studio Classic to Studio.

  3. Migrate data from Studio Classic to Studio: Heavy lift task that requires using Amazon DataSync to migrate data from the Studio Classic Amazon Elastic File System volume to either a target Amazon EFS or Amazon Elastic Block Store volume.

The following topics show how to complete these phases to migrate an existing domain from Studio Classic to Studio.
