Containers are everywhere these days. Many of us are containerizing our applications to take advantage of the ease of a single artifact, but what can we do to make deploying these containers to a fleet of servers easier? Kubernetes is arguably the most popular container orchestration system to date. Kubernetes was born out of a decade of research at Google and has seen success; by itself as a fantastic way to orchestrate containers across multiple machines and as a component in other platforms.
This talk will begin with the anatomy and setup of a Kubernetes cluster. We'll demonstrate (live) taking a container containing a simple web service and launch our application into a small Kubernetes cluster. Next we'll perform a rolling update to deploy a new container version with zero downtime. Also, we'll check out some cool debugging features Kubernetes provides over the course of our demo.
