HabanaAI Operator for OpenShift

OpenShift provides access to certain hardware resources such as Intel® Gaudi® AI accelerators, NICs, and other components through the device plugin framework. Configuring and managing OpenShift nodes with these hardware resources require setting multiple software components and libraries.

Since this is time consuming and error prone, the HabanaAI Operator is used with the Kernel Module Management (KMM) Operator. This automates the management of all HabanaAI software components needed to provision Gaudi accelerators within OpenShift cluster, from the drivers to the respective monitoring metrics.

The following sections provide guidelines for setting up the necessary dependencies and deploying the HabanaAI Operator:

To use the legacy setup, refer to OpenShift (OCP) User Guide.
