Kubernetes: beyond Minikube

A presentation at SFEIR Lille Meetup in in Lille, France by Horacio Gonzalez

Judging by the buzz it has created, this last year has been the year of Kubernetes. It is everywhere, and as usual with such popular subjects, there is a huge stash of content about it: tutorials, blog posts, talks by the dozen, everybody seems to be speaking about Kubernetes… So everything is good in Ces derniers mois Kubernetes est partout, en terme de buzz word on peut difficilement faire mieux. Et comme souvent lorsqu’un sujet est si populaire, vous avez des tutoriels, billets de blog et talks par milliers, expliquant comment bien démarrer sur Kubernetes. All is well in the best of worlds, right?

Well, to be sincere, I wouldn’t say so… Most of those tutorial, posts and talks stop just after they have guided you to do the “Hello Kube”, when you have a handful of applications deployed on a local Minikube on your laptop. But that is not the end, it’s more of the true beginning of the path…

In this talk I’m going to speak about the gap between Minikube and a production-ready Kubernetes infrastructure, about the dozens of “small details” that become show stoppers the first time you try to deploy your production Kubernetes, about the usefulness of managed Kubernetes solutions, about vendor locking, about multicloud and Kubernetes federation. In brief, about what to do after you have deployed on your Minikube…
