GPU Builder

The GpuBuilder allows you to get started with a builder class to configure with required setup as you prepare a blueprint for setting up EKS cluster with GPU Operator to run your GPU workloads.

The GpuBuilder creates the following: - An EKS Cluster` with passed k8s version and cluster tags. - A nodegroup to schedule GPU workloads with parameters passed.

Input Parameters

GpuOptions which takes inputs to GpuBuilder supports following parameters:

  • kubernetesVersion : Required field, Kubernetes version to use for the cluster
  • instanceClass: Required field, Instance class to use for the cluster
  • instanceSize: Required field, Instance size to use for the cluster
  • nodeRole: optional, Node IAM Role to be attached to nodes.
  • gpuAmiType: Required field, AMI Type for GPU Nodes. For example AL2_X86_64_GPU.
  • desiredNodeSize: Optional field, Desired number of nodes to use for the cluster
  • minNodeSize: Optional field, Minimum number of nodes to use for the cluster
  • maxNodeSize: Optional field, Maximum number of nodes to use for the cluster
  • blockDeviceSize: Optional field, Block device size
  • clusterProviderTags: Optional field, Cluster Provider Tags
  • nodeGroupTags: Optional field, Node Group Tags for nodes which run standard cluster software.

Demonstration - Running GPUs on EKS Cluster

The below usage helps you with a demonstration to use GpuBuilder to configure a required setup as you prepare a blueprint for setting up GPU nodes on a new EKS cluster.
