Hi all, I've got a quick question pertaining to Flyte functionality: I have used Prefect before, and it has the ability to connect from an on prem deployment to a cloud provider to run jobs in the cloud - does Flyte also support this? Essentially, I want to be able to host it on prem, but have the ability to push pipeline runs to the cloud but I can't find anything in the documentation about it.

Hi @Brennan Tolman Flyte supports a development flow that can start from local (that's, your Python venv, not even K8s), then running the same code against a local Flyte cluster just by adding the
modifier, or also just pointing your
to your remote environment hosted on cloud. Unfortunately the docs don't follow this logical path yet, but consider these sections: Local execution: On-prem minimalistic cluster: Cloud deployment: What cloud provider you plan to use?

Thank you @David Espejo (he/him) - @Brennan Tolman Flyte is different from prefect, that it is a serverless engine - i.e. you can submit a job from anywhere and it will run on the k8s cluster to which flyte is attached it can be cross cloud, cross on-prem, laptop to cloud etc. also look at Union AI to see a fully managed hybrid deployment in your cloud
