Kubernetes is powerfully declarative with YAML being the UX to request all that a workload needs. Kubernetes has tried to maintain this defining characteristic even as scenarios continue to expand. The device plugin interface was introduced to Kubernetes back in v1.10 to enable requesting and reserving static hardware for workloads, such as GPUs for ML applications. What about other devices used by workloads? This talk will cover several stories of how different types of the devices can be used in Kubernetes clusters: - From traditional datacenters to small IoT centric devices. - From exclusively accessed to shared devices. - From local stateless devices to network attached devices. - From simple single-purpose devices to pipelines of devices. All these scenarios require both a simple yet flexible UX for users to request a variety of devices with various properties. Alexander and Kate will discuss projects and proposals in the Kubernetes ecosystem that are working towards this goal of connecting devices and workloads. They will also discuss how to get involved in this evolution to let workloads be utterly materialistic. Whatever the app needs, it shall get.
