Complex Stateful Applications on Kubernetes: KubeDirector version 0.2

Last summer, I wrote here about our BlueK8s initiative and a new open source project for deploying and managing complex stateful scale-out applications on Kubernetes: KubeDirector. KubeDirector enables data scientists familiar with data-intensive distributed applications such as Hadoop, Spark, Cassandra, TensorFlow, Caffe2, etc. to easily run these applications on Kubernetes. In my blog post on […] Read More
