Now that Kubernetes is finding its way into 5G, IoT, Telco, and AI/ML environments, we have a new challenge: meeting performance SLAs for performance-critical workloads at scale. With the next generation of systems having varying hardware topologies, and no way to meet performance goals without hardware accelerators, Kubernetes needs to manage increasingly heterogeneous hardware. This is the problem of resource hardware topology that we plan to solve. Attendees will learn about the gaps in the current ecosystem and why it is more important than ever to consider hardware topology both during scheduling and resource allocation. We give an insight into workarounds, proposed solutions and the ongoing efforts in the community to enhance platform awareness, scheduling and runtimes to address these gaps. We will share the overall roadmap on how we see kubernetes evolving to optimise cluster wide performance of workloads, resource utilisation and its overall enhancement as a system. The panel comprises members from different areas of the CNCF community including engineers and architects from Software, Hardware, Telco and Cloud Provider vendors.
