GPU enabled Docker image

  • Use the image from for GPUs to be recognised inside your environment (it's already in the config file, just choose that as the environment)
  • Other tensorflow images won't detect the GPUs due to issues with CUDA and cuDNN

Guidelines For a new installation

Initial Setup

  • Create a new group called admin
  • Assign Administrator Access policy
  • Create user, enable programmatic and AWS console access, and add to the admin group (if required)
  • MFA in the root account must be enabled. Assign Virtual MFA (Microsoft Authenticator)
  • Root account access key should be deleted
  • Create additional users and groups as necessary
  • Sign out of root account
  • Sign in as i-am-user
  • Cloud Formation Role needed to create any of the following components. This also needs IAM access

Creating a VPC

  • Add the necessary policies to the I-AM role.
  • Create a VPC from cloud formation using the CF template
  • Default is Public-Private

Creating the Cluster

  • Create cluster from the EKS console
  • Add security groups and subnets related to the previously created VPC
  • Security group has ControlPlaneSecurityGroup in the name available in the drop down
  • Configure cluster end point access. It is Public by default

Attaching Nodes to the Cluster

Opening a ticket on AWS: AWS does not let you create GPU instances, so a ticket must be created for this

Nodes do not connect to cluster: This is because of a changed configuration from AWS. MapPublicIpOnLaunch should be set to true in the VPC settings.
