Very cool!

While the language-independent nature of it likely makes it more
complex than what you'd need for a more Python-centric approach, it
may be worth your while to poke around at
which pursues a similar model based on running analyses in celery
worker nodes running on Kubernetes. Unfortunately, the public design
documentation for fabric8-analytics is minimal to nonexistent, so it
can be rather hard to follow as a newcomer to the code base :(
