KubeFlow Bundle


This bundle deploys KubeFlow to a Juju K8s model. The individual charms that make up this bundle can be found under charms/.



If you are on macOS or Windows, you will need to use an Ubuntu VM. You can install multipass and access an Ubuntu VM with these commands:

multipass launch --name kubeflow --mem 2G
multipass shell kubeflow

Once you have an Ubuntu environment, you'll need to install these snaps to get started:

sudo snap install juju --classic
sudo snap install juju-wait --classic


You'll also need to install the microk8s snap:

sudo snap install microk8s --classic

Next, you can run the commands in scripts/deploy-microk8s individually, or run the script as a whole.


You'll also need to install the kubectl snap:

sudo snap install kubectl --classic

You will then need to create an AWS account for juju to use, and then add the credentials to juju:

$ juju add-credential aws
Enter credential name: kubeflow-test

Using auth-type "access-key".

Enter access-key: <YOUR ACCESS KEY>

Enter secret-key: <YOUR SECRET KEY>

Credential "kubeflow-test" added locally for cloud "aws".

Next, you can run the commands in these two scripts individually, or run the script as a whole:




Main Dashboard

Most interactions will go through the central dashboard, which is available via Ambassador at /. The deploy scripts will print out the address you can point your browser to when they are done deploying.

Argo UI

You can view pipelines from the Pipeline Dashboard available on the central dashboard, or by going to /argo/.

TensorFlow Jobs

To submit a TensorFlow job to the dashboard, you can run this kubectl command:

kubectl create -n <NAMESPACE> -f path/to/job/definition.yaml

Where <NAMESPACE> matches the name of the Juju model that you're using, and path/to/job/definition.yaml should point to a TFJob definition similar to the mnist.yaml example found here.

TensorFlow Serving

You can submit a model to be served with TensorFlow Serving:

# For a single model
juju deploy cs:~kubeflow-charmers/kubeflow-tf-serving --storage models=storage-class,, --config model=/path/to/base/dir/model-name

# For a model.conf:
juju deploy cs:~kubeflow-charmers/kubeflow-tf-serving --storage models=storage-class,, --config model-conf=/path/to/model.conf
