a better way to phrase the question might be - is there a way to do cron-like flow executions on a kubernetes cluster with just the open source version? My understanding is 'no' (which is fine!), but just wanted to check

Hi @yuvipanda! Your understanding is correct - the scheduling either occurs in a stateless way in-process (when only using the open source package) or within Prefect Cloud in a stateful way
Sorry, I might have overstated what I meant there ->
flow.run()
will run your flow on its schedule, so if you spun up a container that called this as an entrypoint your flow would run on schedule
It just requires that process to stay alive

right. so if I have notebooks that need to be run on a schedule, I can spin up a job / container with them running, and redeploy whenever the notebook changes
or I can use prefect cloud, and run the kubernetes agent

We are evaluating prefect for deployment for a couple of clients. I’d like to chat about how the pricing structure works and things like that. let me know the appropriate person to talk to about those kind of questions. Fro reference Yuvi and I are part of Quansight (https://www.quansight.com/)
