Why deploy AI/ML (Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning) workloads on OpenShift?

While organizations are turning to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) to better serve customers, reduce cost, and gain other competitive advantages, there are significant challenges to executing these programs. Data Scientists need a self-service experience that allows them to build, scale, and share their machine learning (ML) modeling results across the hybrid cloud. With Red Hat OpenShift, you'll enable data scientists to easily enable and deploy their ML modeling without the dependency on IT to provision infrastructure. Learn more at

Using MPI Operator for GPU-Accelerated Workloads with Lustre FS David Gray Red Hat | NVIDIA GTC OSCG

David Gray (Red Hat) NVIDIA GTC OpenShift Commons Gathering October 9, 2020 High performance computing workloads increasingly rely on containers that make applications easier to manage, preserve their dependencies, and add portability across different environments. Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is an enterprise-ready Kubernetes-based platform for deploying containerized applications on shared compute resources. An Operator is a method of packaging, deploying, and managing a Kubernetes-native application that can make it easier to run complex workloads. We'll demonstrate how GPU-accelerated scientific applications can be deployed on OpenShift, using message-passing interface and backed by the Lustre file system for data storage.
