In this chapter, we will install Kubeflow on Amazon EKS cluster. If you don’t have an EKS cluster, please follow instructions from getting started guide and then launch your EKS cluster using eksctl chapter

Increase cluster size

We need more resources for completing Kubeflow chapters. Let’s go and increase the size of our cluster

eksctl get nodegroups --cluster eksworkshop-eksctl

Take a note of your nodegroup name and use it to scale your cluster. For ex, here is my nodegroup

eksworkshop-eksctl      ng-52c1fb5e     2019-11-05T16:22:50Z    3               3               3          m

Currently my cluster has 3 nodes in ng-52c1fb5e nodegroup. In order to scale my cluster to 6, I use this command

export NODEGROUP_NAME=ng-52c1fb5e
eksctl scale nodegroup --cluster eksworkshop-eksctl --name $NODEGROUP_NAME --nodes 6

Scaling nodegroup will take 2 - 3 minutes

Install Kubeflow on Amazon EKS

Download 0.7 RC6 release of kfctl. This binary will allow you to install Kubeflow on Amazon EKS:

curl --silent --location "" | tar xz -C /tmp
sudo mv -v /tmp/kfctl /usr/local/bin

Export Kubeflow configuration file:

export CONFIG_URI=

Customize your configuration

Set an environment variable for your AWS cluster name, and set the name of the Kubeflow deployment to the same as the cluster name.

export AWS_CLUSTER_NAME=eksworkshop-eksctl

Set the path to the base directory where you want to store Kubeflow deployments. Then set the Kubeflow application directory for this deployment.

export BASE_DIR=~/environment
export KF_DIR=${BASE_DIR}/${KF_NAME}

Until is fixed, install aws-iam-authenticator:

curl -o aws-iam-authenticator
chmod +x aws-iam-authenticator
sudo mv aws-iam-authenticator /usr/local/bin

Run kfctl build command to set up your configuraiton

mkdir -p ${KF_DIR}
cd ${KF_DIR}
kfctl build -V -f ${CONFIG_URI}

Set an environment variable pointing to your local configuration file

export CONFIG_FILE=${KF_DIR}/kfctl_aws.0.7.0.yaml

Replace EKS Cluster Name, AWS Region and IAM Roles in your $(CONFIG_FILE)

sed -i "s@eksctl-eksworkshop-eksctl-nodegroup-ng-a2-NodeInstanceRole-xxxxxxx@$ROLE_NAME@" ${CONFIG_FILE}
sed -i -e 's/kubeflow-aws/'"$AWS_CLUSTER_NAME"'/' ${CONFIG_FILE}
sed -i "s@us-west-2@$AWS_REGION@" ${CONFIG_FILE}

Deploy Kubeflow

Apply configuration and deploy Kubeflow on your cluster:

rm -rf kustomize
kfctl apply -V -f ${CONFIG_FILE}

Wait for all pods to be in Running state (this can take a few minutes):

kubectl get pods -n kubeflow
