    and in Nomad as in K8S you can only allocate a whole GPU
    what interesting is that some of the cards like Titan RTX are recognized as more than one
    I guess they have more GPU’s on board (I know that must sound silly but I’m so far away from hardware...)
    How do you measure one GPU? One card not necessarily means one GPU, right?
    Do you have some good resources to check out?
    This is the new way of security and we could look more in then some pod

    Me too, I haven't build a computer in decades. I left that behind because it is quite an expensive and time consuming hobby.
    I have no good resources on GPU hardware utilization.
    I'm not even sure that on-prem is really a financially viable solution when you see the time and expertise it takes to care for those GPUs. I haven't seen any good numbers on that. I think if you have a massive team of data scientist hammering GPUs day-in day-out, it might make sense. After all, at scale everything is different. BUT if you have high scale, you're going to pay for a team of highly specialized datacenter operator who know GPUs. They also forget that the data needs to come from somewhere and the amount of data is now usually counted in PB(> TB > GB). I'd like to see the networking cost of that. It may actually be cheaper to outsource that work to a cloud provider, so I'm still skeptical about the "saving money" part.
    I heard that the new RTX 30 series is a considered a major evolution in the architecture of GPU. Here is the NVIDIA keynote : http://youtube.com/watchv=QKx-eMAVK70
    As a colleague put it: "If the stock price did not really improve after the announcement, it might not be such a big deal." It has some truth in it, I'm not sure if it applies in COVID times.
    If you to a proof that running a data center is usually more expensive than the cloud, here is a twitter thread written by the person who built the physical datacenters of Google: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1102401615263223809.html
    I hope that the task of managing those on-prem cluster will never fall on me 🙏

    On a different topic, have you seen this tool: https://googlecontainertools.github.io/kpt
    configuration-as-data (vs configuration-as-code) .... I did not understand the difference at first but it is a very interesting concept....
    I'd love to talk about it once I know more
    Andrey Devyatkin
    @Andrey9kin

    Q: How is kpt different from other solutions?

    A: Rather than expressing configuration as code, kpt represents configuration packages as data, in particular as YAML or JSON objects adhering to the kubernetes resource model

    FAQ does not really give you much
    I would love the web-site to tell what that is for and what problem it is intended to solve
    from FAQ I get a feeling that it is somekind of GitOps tool thingy for K8S

    I agree that the website is bad at explaining. The ascii cinema should be converted to documentation: https://googlecontainertools.github.io/kpt/reference/pkg/
    I hate to have to play a video to understand something.
    I see very little different from git submodule command

    @Andrey9kin
    Okay
    That is different

    @Andrey9kin
    it is out now
    Julien Bisconti
    @veggiemonk
    Great
    Mattias Hemmingsson
    @mattiashem
    can i share this one
    Andrey Devyatkin
    @Andrey9kin
    sure
    though this link can’t be seen without podcaster login
    if you want spotify link

    @mattiashem
    I try thanks :-)

    I was advocating for Docker Swarm more than kubernetes a few years ago because Devs and Ops were overwhelmed and needed a smaller solutions. Especially since it should not require a massive overhaul of everything by moving from Swarm to K8s.... I don't think it is worth it now unless Docker Swarm has a clear set of features that are difficult to implement in Kubernetes.
    Mattias Hemmingsson
    @mattiashem
    wow Docker Swarm still out there :-)
    Andrey Devyatkin
    @Andrey9kin
    Did you read the article? ;)
    it seems that they want to keep docker swarm interface but move backend to k8s
    Mattias Hemmingsson
    @mattiashem
    yee and run swarm inside k8s ? to make it simple for devs ...
    Its hard we have so many nice tools now it was good with swarm was you could have a compose and then point it to server and said go
    Still do all local dev in compose instead if minikube ?
