What is Argo Workflows?

Argo Workflows is an open source container-native workflow engine for orchestrating parallel jobs on Kubernetes. Argo Workflows is implemented as a Kubernetes CRD (Custom Resource Definition).

  • Define workflows where each step in the workflow is a container.
  • Model multi-step workflows as a sequence of tasks or capture the dependencies between tasks using a directed acyclic graph (DAG).
  • Easily run compute intensive jobs for machine learning or data processing in a fraction of the time using Argo Workflows on Kubernetes.

Argo is a Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) hosted project.

Use Cases

Why Argo Workflows?

  • Argo Workflows is the most popular workflow execution engine for Kubernetes.
  • It can run 1000s of workflows a day, each with 1000s of concurrent tasks.
  • Our users say it is lighter-weight, faster, more powerful, and easier to use
  • Designed from the ground up for containers without the overhead and limitations of legacy VM and server-based environments.
  • Cloud agnostic and can run on any Kubernetes cluster.

Quickstart

The following commands install Argo Workflows as well as some commmonly used components:

kubectl create ns argo
kubectl apply -n argo -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/argoproj/argo-workflows/master/manifests/quick-start-postgres.yaml

These manifests are intended to help you get started quickly. They contain hard-coded passwords that are publicly available and are not suitable in production.
