Frequently Asked Questions

Why on-prem hpc instead of kubernetes?

We have eventual plans for supporting existing on-prem kubernetes deployments in issue #216. HPC still has many advantages over kubernetes:

  • simplicity as it following a more traditional linux and systemd making it easier to diagnose errors

  • can deployed to take advantage of pre-provisioned existing infrastructure

  • TODO still possible to support containerized workflows

  • can fully take advantage of HPC infrastructure in on-prem datacenter
