About this event

When building resilient and enterprise-ready applications on Kubernetes, It is important to get a deep understanding what are Pods, Volumes and Persistent Volumes and how to tie it all together using StatefulSet “Ordered, graceful deployment and scaling” of Pods.

Deployments and ReplicaSets are a great way to run stateless replicas of an application on Kubernetes, but their semantics aren’t really right for deploying stateful applications.

Learn how to create Pods and containers with a unique id and that can find each other via stable network addresses.

Advanced section;
PodDistruptionBudget - the upper limit of disruptions (unhealthy Pods) that the service can tolerate to be considered “Healthy”

Gathering Agenda:

Mingling, Free Beer, and Pizza!
