SAS® on Kubernetes: Container Orchestration of Analytic Work Loads
About this paper
With vast amounts of data, the infrastructure demands for advanced analytics is ever increasing. There are a class of analytic problems like optimization, forecasting, machine learning in domains of retail, finance, and other verticals, where the problem could be broken down into smaller sub-problems. Example, in retail; assortment by store, or price optimization by category, in finance; security portfolio optimization by industry, the entire problem is broken down into a subset of smaller jobs. In this paper, we present orchestrating these jobs on Kubernetes, GKE powered by Google Cloud Platform (GCP). We marry the best in analytics; SAS®, with the best in container orchestration, GKE, to build a robust solution to manage analytic workloads. The solution will have the following properties: scalable, performant, elastic, cost-efficient and simple to deploy.
