Introduction

Arena is a lightweight client that is used to manage Kubernetes-based machine learning tasks. Arena allows you to streamline data preparation, model development, model training, and model prediction throughout a complete lifecycle of machine learning. This improves the work efficiency of data scientists. Arena is also deeply integrated with the basic services of Alibaba Cloud. It supports GPU sharing and Cloud Paralleled File System (CPFS). Arena can run in deep learning frameworks optimized by Alibaba Cloud. This maximizes the performance and utilization of heterogeneous computing resources provided by Alibaba Cloud.

ack-arena is used to simplify the installation of open source Arena. You can install ack-arena in the ACK console with a few clicks. This way, you can deploy Arena in your ACK clusters in an efficient manner.
