Key concepts for stateful services in Kubernetes

Managing and deploying stateful microservices compared to stateless ones comes with a different set of concerns and concepts. In this talk we will explore what key concepts there are when deploying stateful microservices and what options within Kubernetes you have to do so. There will also be a demo of using Flocker and Volume Hub to manage persistence for pods deployed in Kubernetes.

Custom High Availability with AWS in Kubernetes

Although the ways of deploying Kubernetes is constantly evolving, there are a few opinionated ways to deploy the different components.  This presentation will walk through how we deploy K8s using CoreOS, Docker containers, Cloud-init, Terraform and Autoscaling groups.  We will discuss why certain technical decisions were made, good and bad.

Keep an eye out for updates and let us know what you would like to see in the future!
