Q&A on Machine Learning and Kubernetes with David Aronchick of Google

Machine learning has been gaining a lot of attention, especially at KubeCon in Austin, TX this past December. Rags Srinivas of InfoQ sat down with David Aronchick, product manager at Google and contributor to Kubeflow, to discuss Kubernetes and machine learning. Take a look at how machine learning is changing businesses today, and how Kubernetes offers a common platform for deploying and running ML platforms at scale.

Scaling Kubernetes to 2,500 Nodes

OpenAI, has been running Kubernetes for deep learning research for the past two years. Kubernetes allows for fast iteration cycle, reasonable scalability, and lack of boilerplate making experimentation at OpenAI quick and easy. Learn how OpenAI scaled its Kubernetes clusters to more than 2,500 nodes on both the cloud and physical hardware, while remaining incident free for 90 days.

Kubernetes Service Mesh
