When developing Cloud Native applications, a robust orchestration layer is crucial. Deployment and management of your containerised applications is not something which can be performed manually. Of the many tools which aim to solve this problem, Kubernetes has emerged as a leader in the space.
While the underlying technologies have existed for much longer, Kubernetes itself is still relatively young. There are many resources available to show you how to ‘quickly’ get up and running, But when it comes to running Kubernetes in production, it is still a learning process.
In this talk, Ian Crosby will take a look at the best practices as well as the common mistakes we have seen while working with companies who are running Kubernetes in production. From running your own local highly available Kubernetes cluster to leveraging a cloud hosted solution, he will share the lessons they’ve learned, as well as the most important points to consider when looking to take Kubernetes into the wild.
