Advertising click-prediction modeling on Amazon EKS

In digital advertising, the ad click-through rate (CTR) model predicts the probability of a click given the ads and context x (for example, shopping query, time of the day, device). The output of a CTR model can be seen as a conditional probability p(y = click|x). A precise estimation of this probability influences our ability […]

Using EBS Snapshots for persistent storage with your EKS cluster

Originally, containers were a great fit for stateless applications. However, for many use cases there is a need for persistent storage, without which stateful workloads are not possible. Kubernetes first introduced support for stateful workloads with in-tree volume plugins, meaning that the plugin code was part of the core Kubernetes code and shipped with the […]
