Batch Processing

In this Chapter, we will deploy common batch processing scenarios using Kubernetes and Argo.

What is Argo?

Argo Workflows is an open source container-native workflow engine for orchestrating parallel jobs on Kubernetes. Argo Workflows is implemented as a Kubernetes CRD (Custom Resource Definition).

  • Define workflows where each step in the workflow is a container.
  • Model multi-step workflows as a sequence of tasks or capture the dependencies between tasks using a directed acyclic graph (DAG).
  • Easily run compute intensive jobs for machine learning or data processing in a fraction of the time using Argo Workflows on Kubernetes.
  • Run CI/CD pipelines natively on Kubernetes without configuring complex software development products.

Argo is a Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) hosted project.
