The AI landscape is exploding with a dizzying array of models, from the Large Language Models (LLMs) most of us have experimented with like Llama 2 or 3 from Meta, Claude 2 from Anthropic, and Bard (now Gemini) from Google, and the original ChatGPT.

Each boasts unique capabilities, from generating different creative text formats to translating languages and answering your questions in an informative way. To make this even more confusing we have models that excel at robotics, tabular regression, image generation, or depth estimation.

Choosing The Right Model For Your Business

While this abundance offers exciting possibilities, it also presents a significant challenge: choosing the right model for your specific needs, and doing it within your budget. The pricing models for these vary greatly Gemin 1.0 advanced, to 1.5 Ultra is a 10x cost differential.

For businesses, this creates an impossible puzzle: how do you select the optimal model without getting lost in the ever evolving AI arms race? And how do you do this within your budget?

The answer lies in flexibility. Instead of locking into a single model, businesses need an adaptable infrastructure that allows them to test their business use case against one model, evaluate the performance and then try another, without rebuilding the solution.

Additionally as new models are released, testing these to see if there is an uplift to the value of the model quickly, is going to give you the competitive advantage over others that need to rebuild their solution.

This ability to quickly swap out models offers several key benefits:

  • Optimize Performance: Different tasks require different strengths. Flexibility allows you to choose the model that delivers the best results for each specific use case, whether it’s generating marketing copy, measuring depths of objects in an image, or analyzing customer sentiment.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: The price of models vary significantly. Flexibility empowers you to choose the most cost-effective option for your needs and budget, potentially leading to significant savings.
  • Future-Proofing: The AI field is evolving at breakneck speed. The ability to test the newest model and evaluate the cost v performance of it is key to getting the most business value from your spend.


Architecting a solution that works for your business can be easily acheived on Google Cloud with Vertex AI, but this will exclude you from using ChatGPT or other models not avaiable on

LLMs on Google Cloud Vertex AI

Google Cloud’s Vertex AI provides the perfect platform for achieving this flexibility. It allows businesses to seamlessly deploy, manage, and experiment with various LLMs through a unified interface. If you are not happy with the 50 or so models they have, you can deploy one from which has over 600,000 models to choose from.

The alternative solution for the non Google customers could be to write a common API, which would give you the flexibility to swap out models, or use Chat GPT which is one model that you cannot find on either Google or

Any LLM With a Common API
