Hi, I’m interested in running Prefect Server in EKS and am looking through this documentation. I’m fairly new to Prefect 2.0 as well as K8s, so thanks in advance for your patience! 😛 I think I understand how to install the server via helm chart, but I’m confused about Workers in terms of “who does the computing”: If I just have a single worker running on a pod, and submit 10 different flows to that worker, will all the flows run on that Worker’s pod? Or will a new pod be spun up for each flow? If I want a new pod to be spun up for each flow, and be terminated when the flow is completed, is there an easy way to specify that?

each flow run gets a new pod
process workers, flow-runs run as sub-processes. with the k8s worker, each flow run gets a new pod
