In [[Kubernetes]], a Node is a (physical or virtual) machine in charge of running some workloads. Kubernetes is run entirely on nodes, and everything that happens on Kubernetes cluster, happens on ...

Node Affinity is a feature which ensures that [[K8S Pod]] end up running on specific [[K8S Node]]. We are already able to do this with [[K8S Node Selectors]], but with big limitations.

It's possible to make a pod go to a specific node based on the node label. For example, if you have one large node and two smaller nodes, and you have a workload which needs to run on the large node, you can make it run there by specifying:

apiVersion: v1
kind: Pod
  name: some-pod
    - name: some-name
      image: some-image
    size: Large

In order for this to work, we need to label the large node with size: Large. We can do this by running:

kubectl label nodes <node-name> <label-key>=<label-value>
