The VAE runs on a Kubernetes Cluster hosted on an OpenStack cloud at EMBL-EBI.

Kubernetes cluster

A Kubernetes cluster is required to deploy the VAE. At present this is deployed using Ansible and the Kubespray project. See the IDR/deployment repository for the required playbooks.


The VAE deployment uses the Zero to JupyterHub Helm chart to deploy JupyterHub and configure notebooks. This is an automated process using GitLab CI/CD, and is controlled by the IDR/k8s-analysis-deploy repository using Helmfile.
