    For our experiments, we will use Volcano which is a batch scheduler for Kubernetes, well-suited for scheduling Spark applications pods with a better efficiency than the default kube-scheduler. The main reason is that Volcano allows "group scheduling" or "gang scheduling": while the default scheduler of Kubernetes schedules containers one by one, Volcano ensures that a gang of related containers (here, the Spark driver and its executors) can be scheduled at the same time. If for any reason it is not possible to deploy all the containers in a gang, Volcano will not schedule that gang. This article explains in more detail the reasons for using Volcano.
