19:15 - 19:45 - Productizing ML with Kubernetes

AWS controllers for Kubernetes - AWS services, now Kubified

Do you love the Kubernetes API and user experience? Do you love declaratively defining your application as a Deployment or Daemonset, a Service, and maybe an Ingress manifest, and letting the magic of Kubernetes handle the orchestration of your application deployment? We do too! Until now, if you had a Kubernetes application with some dependencies on an AWS resources (like S3 Bucket, SNS Topic, DynamoDB Table, etc) you needed to use another tool in addition to Kubernetes, like Terraform or CloudFormation, to manage the creation and lifecycle of those resource dependencies.

Can we do better? Kubernetes API is extensible and can be extended to manage even non-kubernetes resources! In this talk we will introduce this concept, of managing cloud resources through Kubernetes API, and discuss how this concept affects current software development and deployment practices. We will also explore the AWS Controllers for Kubernetes (ACK), which lets you define your application's AWS managed service resources using the familiar Kubernetes API and manifests! No need to use a different configuration system or log into the AWS Console! Come learn about the design of the AWS Controllers for Kubernetes, what features this new project provides, and the roadmap for service integration over the coming months.

Productizing ML with Kubernetes

Productizing ML is hard, and many companies are starting to build their own infrastructure for "operationalized AI" and kinda re-inventing the wheel. That being said, if you use a modern cloud-native stack, you can build your own AI Infrastructure stack fairly smoothly on Kubernetes.

In this talk, Almog, a Kubernetes maintainer, will review with us the various trends and open-source tools to build your own Production-ready AI Infrastructure stack. We'll talk about the various stages on the pipeline, about Kubeflow, KServe, Seldon, RaptorML and other ML k8s buzzwords 😎 a sneak peek into the future πŸ‘½ (which is actually... quite present).
