Kubernetes is an open source project, originally developed by Google, for deploying and orchestrating containers. Kubernetes has emerged as one of the most popular platforms for managing containerized applications at scale.
Kubernetes uses simple principles of pods, nodes, and clusters to logically organize related containers into groups, but there’s a lot going on underneath.
We start with an overview of how Kubernetes works and discuss the open source project and commercial variants. We also look at how Kubernetes compares to other orchestration systems such as Mesos.
On the technical side we drill into the infrastructure and operational requirements to deploy and run Kubernetes. We also look at learning and training resources for people who want to test and explore Kubernetes, and Kelsey shares his opinion of the burgeoning Kubernetes community.
If it’s possible to do an introductory show that also goes deep, we may have pulled it off in this episode. This is the longest Datanauts show to date, but we think you’ll find it worth your time.
