Deploying a maintainable Kubernetes cluster in 20 minutes


With the proliferation of container and cloud technologies, Kubernetes is currently becoming the de facto standard for cloud container orchestration. And although, Kubernetes itself does a fantastic job of running and scaling the container workloads it has been entrusted with, it does not take care of its own infrastructure. The X project was started last year to overcome this problem. This presentation will overview the challenges that the X team faced during the engineering process, and will elaborate on the most crucial decisions and solutions. In conclusion, the achieved disaster recovery and upgrade scenarios will be demonstrated using a cluster that will be deployed during the presentation.
