Serverless Installation Guide¶
KServe Serverless installation enables autoscaling based on request volume and supports scale down to and from zero. It also supports revision management and canary rollout based on revisions.
Kubernetes 1.22 is the minimally required version and please check the following recommended Knative, Istio versions for the corresponding Kubernetes version.
Recommended Version Matrix¶
|Kubernetes Version||Recommended Istio Version||Recommended Knative Version|
1. Install Knative Serving¶
Please refer to Knative Serving install guide.
If you are looking to use PodSpec fields such as nodeSelector, affinity or tolerations which are now supported in the v1beta1 API spec, you need to turn on the corresponding feature flags in your Knative configuration.
In Knative 1.8, The cluster domain suffix is changed to
svc.cluster.local as the default domain. As routes using the cluster domain suffix are not exposed through Ingress, you will need to configure DNS in order to expose their services (most users probably already are).
2. Install Networking Layer¶
The recommended networking layer for KServe is Istio as currently it works best with KServe, please refer to the Istio install guide. Alternatively you can also choose other networking layers like Kourier or Contour, see how to install Kourier with KServe guide.
