Go bigger and go faster! That’s the theme of this week’s show with Jeremy Eder (@jeremyeder, Senior Principal Software Engineer at Red Hat), as we discuss the newly formed Kubernetes Resource Management Working Group. The show focuses on how this cross-functional group is working on these core strategies:
- Support for performance sensitive workloads (exclusive cores, cpu pinning strategies, NUMA)
- Integrating new hardware devices (GPUs, FPGAs, Infiniband, etc.)
- Improving resource isolation (local storage, hugepages, caches, etc.)
- Improving Quality of Service (performance SLOs)
- Performance benchmarking
- APIs and extensions related to the features mentioned above
Jeremy gives us great insight into how the WG is taking input from customer-centric communities such as Financial Services, Telecom, High-Performance Computing and Scientific Research, and Animation (as well as many others) to drive the next broad set of applications to run on Kubernetes.
