Hey folks, has anyone run Dagster jobs across 500+ nodes? I’m looking at moving from kops to EKS and am concerned that EKS’ managed control plane is not going to handle 500 nodes starting at the same time.

EKS control plane wouldn't worry me, but you should talk to your AWS sales engineer to make sure your quotas set up to allow scaling up/down that fast.
You may need to change your cluster-autoscaler config too
500 nodes coming online at once isn't actually much work for kube-apiserver compared to the normal baseline nonsense it deals with 🙂

thanks Noah. I wouldn’t assume it’s too intense as long as EKS is able to create more replicas. DNS is a more pressing issue.
