In the evolving arena of data technology, adaptability reigns supreme. Our world is increasingly being permeated by innovative applications, with Large Language Models (LLMs) being a notable exemplar. These powerful models showcase the evolving needs of our data stack—imagine having the flexibility to train massive models on-premises and then effortlessly scaling inferences in the vast, elastic arena of the cloud. This constant evolution in use cases necessitates foundational elements like analytical databases to be inherently resilient and adaptable, perpetually poised to meet the changing tides of technology and use cases.
At Yellowbrick, we saw this coming some time ago. Our choice of Kubernetes as a cornerstone was more than strategic; it was pivotal. Kubernetes is not just about managing our deployment in the cloud – it's about fostering an environment where modern use cases can be built, whether they’re operating in the cloud, on-premises, or in the hybrid environment.
Kubernetes provides Yellowbrick with:
- Scalability: Kubernetes makes it easy to scale Yellowbrick out (or in) to meet the demands of different workloads. This is important for businesses that need to be able to handle sudden spikes in traffic or that need to be able to scale back their data warehouse when demand is low.
- Multi-cloud and portable: Kubernetes is largely platform-agnostic. It can be used to deploy and manage Yellowbrick on any cloud or hardware platform. This gives our customers the flexibility to choose the cloud platform that best meets their needs today and future-proofs them from future technology shifts.
- Improved reliability: Kubernetes helps enhance the reliability of Yellowbrick by providing self-healing, autoscaling, and automated update capabilities. These features help to ensure that Yellowbrick is always up and running.
In a nutshell, Kubernetes is intrinsic to Yellowbrick’s ethos of adaptability and future readiness.
