In this session we will go into the details of a recent demo at Kubecon Barcelona (https://kccnceu19.sched.com/event/MRyv) where we reperformed the Higgs analysis using Kubernetes and the Google Cloud. The actual demo took around 5min and involved going over a 70TB dataset using 20000 cores.
Topics will include the initial test setup at CERN, data transfer to GCP, setup of Kubernetes in GKE and required tuning of the control plane, compute and i/o.
From the analysis side, we will cover how containers allowed us to run using software released back in 2010, and how anyone can redo the same exercise using open data.
