How we were building an open source platform for managing multiple Kubernetes clusters: pitfalls and solutions

Day 1 /  / Track 1  /  RU / For practicing engineers

Kubernetes adoption as an open-source orchestration engine for containerized applications grew significantly over the past years. The challenges around it also evolved with time. In the beginning it was about the easy way to provision Kubernetes cluster. This day the real challenge is management of multiple clusters. This session will go over problems hit and approaches taken, while building Rancher — an open source Kubernetes clusters management platform. The focus won't be entirely on the product itself, but on problems and solutions that are common for similar projects.

This presentation would be useful for peer engineers who are working developing similar projects, as well as for operation engineers/users/companies who are thinking about adopting multi cluster project management project for their needs. We want to share what we've learned from the developer perspective while building Rancher, as well as explain the benefits of having multiple Kubernetes clusters in the organization.
