Google Kubernetes Engine Valuable Features

CTO at Translucent Computing Inc

The solution allows you to work on and from multiple clouds. You can use Google's cloud, or mix and match clouds across suppliers.

You can split into regions within your own cloud.

The deployment of the cluster is very easy. You just click a button and it's deployed, or just run a simple command and it deploys itself. You don't have to go through the steps of installing the cluster yourself. It's already deployed and managed.

The master of the cluster is also managed by Google. If there are any updates, they are responsible to handle that. It just takes a little bit of a load from our task load. You don't have to manage the master, or the version of the cluster yourself. 

You don't have to think about the installation process. They take care of the underlying infrastructure deployment and managing the versioning of the cluster. When we need to update, it's simple. They'll help us to easily, smoothly update those cluster nodes. You don't have to deal with that either.

When it comes to the Google Cloud, the Kubernetes advantage that's there for machine learning is that they have a CPU, which is a central processing unit, which is much faster than GPU. If the clients are willing to pay for it, we'll run the machine learning jobs within the Kubernetes cluster, then connect to Google CPU, which gives us the ability to finish the job much, much faster.
