6 20 - 6 25 - Intro

6:30 - 7:15 - Independence from Dependencies

The current application deployment model in Kubernetes does not handle object dependencies very well. It assumes that applications can achieve consistency automatically using the microservices paradigm. Unfortunately, while the model assumes the distributed application itself will figure out in which order it should bring up and connect its pods (for example that the app pod will wait for the database pod to come up before attempting to connect, and so on), that's not always the case.

The problem is that in reality many distributed applications cannot be easily rewritten to fit this deployment paradigm. Some of these dependency problems can be resolved using the Kubernetes APIs, but a subset of issues that require external orchestration still exists.

In this presentation, we will go through different use cases where this problem comes into play, providing hints on how to solve them with Pod and Replication Controllers, PetSets, Daemon Sets and other Kubernetes objects. For the most complex scenarios, we will discuss options available in the community, and our own research in this area.
