Deploying a Kubernetes cluster is relatively simple but managing multiple highly available Kubernetes clusters is quite difficult. Come hear straight from the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service (IKS) team how they run thousands of highly available Kubernetes clusters for IBM customers. Don't worry, this is not going to be a talk filled with sunshine and rainbows. In this talk we will share lessons of the issues we have had to overcome as well as best practices for using Kubernetes to deploy highly available applications. If you ever wanted to learn the real stories around hosting and managing Kubernetes without any sugar coating then this is definitely a talk that you shouldn't miss.
Jeff Sloyer is currently the core dev lead for IBM Cloud Containers Service. He currently leads multiple squads of developers that build IBM's managed Kubernetes service.
Jeff's previous role at IBM was a Developer Advocate. He promoted IBM's Platform as a Service (PaaS), Bluemix. He's a Node.JS developer most days, but tinkers in Java and Python. Sloyer is a hacker at heart who loves playing with new tech and cobbling together new demos and projects. He's an avid traveler, flying around the world and speaking about Bluemix at conferences and events.
