There’s No Such Thing as Vanilla Kubernetes

A presentation at OpenShift Commons Briefing by fen aldrich

There’s no such thing as vanilla Kubernetes in the same vein that there is no vanilla Linux; even if you start from source, you must custom build everything around it to make it production ready. By looking at the past and the present, this talk will explore what it takes to build and operate Kubernetes in production, what alternatives you can buy, and extrapolates on industry trends towards “utility” services to explore what the future of Kubernetes might look like.
