Operating Kubernetes at Pinterest: Past, Present and Future - Rodrigo Menezes & Roberto Rodriguez Alcala, Pinterest

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Over the last 2 years, Pinterest has been working on migrating systems to Kubernetes.
Currently we operate multiple multi tenant clusters that run ML workloads on GPUs and CPUs as well as highly available online serving systems. Operating Kubernetes at this scale has presented some challenges, like upgrades, safe deployments, autoscaling and more.

By leveraging Kops and combining it with other tools, we've been able to successfully overcome some of the challenges and we can now do things like
set up a cluster in hours, easily reshape our infrastructure or roll out updates seamlessly.

Along the way we added extra features like ephemeral nodes using spot instances, huge pages, GPUs and more; without any significant impact on the operation load.

This session will go through the design decisions, the reasons behind, details about our implementation and improvements that we're working on.
