About this event

• What we'll do
This talk was first presented at the Pre-FOSDEM Kubernetes event in Brussels at the beginning of February. It was so informative and full of useful information that one can apply when setting up and running Kubernetes clusters, we've requested that Sergiusz and Alex do the talk again, in an extended format. If you want to learn more about installing and running Kubernetes from experienced practitioners, this meetup is for you.

We look forward to seeing you for an evening of shared learning and fun. All questions welcome, from beginner to advanced.

Snacks & drinks will be provided.

"Infrastructure components for Kubernetes deployments", Sergiusz Urbaniak & Alex Somesan

Abstract: There is a lot of buzz and projects around Kubernetes installation and deployment stories. Many installer options exist, starting from DIY solutions like "Kubernetes the hard way" up to ready-to-use cloud provided solutions like AWS EKS and Azure AKS.

This talk tries to demystify the concepts behind a Kubernetes deployment. It outlines the necessary building blocks for networking, storage and compute for a cloud-based Kubernetes installation and provides a concrete example using Terraform.



Sergiusz Urbaniak (Twitter: @_surbaniak): Sergiusz is a Senior Software Engineer at Gesundheitscloud and formerly of the CoreOS Techtonic installer team, and before that Mesosphere.

Alex Somesan (Twitter: @ASomesan): Alex is an engineer at CoreOS/Red Hat ( ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ) and is on the CoreOS Tectonic installer team. He previously honed his Terraform craft at AWS.
