Overview of Deployment on Existing Clusters
Out of dateThis guide contains outdated information pertaining to Kubeflow 1.0. This guide needs to be updated for Kubeflow 1.1.
Follow these instructions if you want to install Kubeflow on an existing Kubernetes cluster. Some clouds and Kubernetes distributions provide Kubeflow specific instructions for getting the most out of their Kubernetes. If your existing Kubernetes cluster is from one of those, consider following those instructions.
Minimum system requirements
The Kubernetes cluster must meet the following minimum requirements:
- Your cluster must include at least one worker node with a minimum of:
- 4 CPU
- 50 GB storage
- 12 GB memory
- The recommended Kubernetes version is 1.14.
Kubeflow has been validated and tested on Kubernetes
- Your cluster must run at least Kubernetes version 1.11.
- Kubeflow does not work on Kubernetes 1.16.
- Older versions of Kubernetes may not be compatible with the latest Kubeflow versions. The following matrix provides information about compatibility between Kubeflow and Kubernetes versions.
|Kubernetes Versions||Kubeflow 0.4||Kubeflow 0.5||Kubeflow 0.6||Kubeflow 0.7||Kubeflow 1.0|
|1.16||incompatible||incompatible||incompatible||incompatible||no known issues|
|1.17||incompatible||incompatible||incompatible||incompatible||no known issues|
|1.18||incompatible||incompatible||incompatible||incompatible||no known issues|
- incompatible: the combination does not work at all
- compatible: all Kubeflow features have been tested and verified for the Kubernetes version
- no known issues: the combination has not been fully tested but there are no repoted issues
Kubeflow Deployment Configurations
The following table lists the options for installing Kubeflow on an existing Kubernetes cluster and links to detailed instructions. These solutions are vendor neutral and are governed by consensus within the Kubeflow community.
|kfctl_k8s_istio.yaml|| This config creates a vanilla deployment of Kubeflow with all its core components without any external dependencies. The deployment can be customized based on your environment needs.
Follow instructions: Kubeflow Deployment with kfctl_k8s_istio
|kfctl_istio_dex.yaml|| This config creates a Kubeflow deployment with all its core components, and uses Dex and Istio for vendor-neutral authentication.
Follow instructions: Multi-user, auth-enabled Kubeflow with kfctl_istio_dex
