Customizing Kubeflow on AWS

Tailoring a AWS deployment of Kubeflow

This guide describes how to customize your deployment of Kubeflow on Amazon EKS. These steps can be done before you run apply -V -f ${CONFIG_FILE} command. Please see the following sections for details. If you don’t understand the deployment process, please see deploy for details.

Customize your Amazon EKS cluster

Note: This is only working for user who like kfctl to create a new EKS cluster. If you already have the cluster, you can skip this section.

Before you run kfctl apply -V -f ${CONFIG_FILE}, you can edit the cluster configuration file to change cluster specification before you create the cluster.

For example, the following is a cluster manifest with one node group which has 2 p2.xlarge instances. You can easily enable SSH and configure a public key. All worker nodes will be in single Availability Zone.

kind: ClusterConfig
  # AWS_CLUSTER_NAME and AWS_REGION will override `name` and `region` here.
  name: kubeflow-example
  region: us-west-2
  version: '1.17'
# If your region has multiple availability zones, you can specify 3 of them.
#availabilityZones: ["us-west-2b", "us-west-2c", "us-west-2d"]

# NodeGroup holds all configuration attributes that are specific to a nodegroup
# You can have several node groups in your cluster.
  - name: eks-gpu
    instanceType: p2.xlarge
    availabilityZones: ["us-west-2b"]
    desiredCapacity: 2
    minSize: 0
    maxSize: 2
    volumeSize: 30
      allow: true
      publicKeyPath: '~/.ssh/'

  # Example of GPU node group
  # - name: Tesla-V100
  # Choose your Instance type for the node group.
  #   instanceType: p3.2xlarge
  # GPU cluster can use single availability zone to improve network performance
  #   availabilityZones: ["us-west-2b"]
  # Autoscaling Groups settings
  #   desiredCapacity: 0
  #   minSize: 0
  #   maxSize: 4
  # Node Root Disk
  #   volumeSize: 50
  # Enable SSH out side your VPC.
  #   allowSSH: true
  #   publicKeyPath: '~/.ssh/'
  # Customize Labels
  #   labels:
  #     '': 'nvidia-tesla-k80'
  # Setup pre-defined iam roles to node group.
  #   iam:
  #     withAddonPolicies:
  #       autoScaler: true

Customize Authentication

If you use the configuration file, you can consider to change the default password in the configuration file. The configuration file contains:

    password: 12341234

If you use the configuration file with cognito, please see this section

Customize IAM Role for Pods

Refer to the Setting up AWS IAM role for Service Account guide.

Customize Private Access

Check the How to create private EKS clusters guide.

Customize Logging

Go to the Add logging support for Kubeflow guide for more information.
