Who is this presentation for?

  • Anyone interested in understanding how to automate the deployment of Kubernetes or wants to understand PKS

What you'll learn

  • Learn how PKS and BOSH make managing Kubernetes clusters easy


Running Kubernetes at scale requires mastering a variety of “Day 2” cluster operations, such as installing a Kubernetes cluster from scratch on an IaaS, patching a CVE on the VMs running Kubernetes without downtime, upgrading to newer versions of Kubernetes, scaling the number of worker nodes in a Kubernetes cluster up or down, building pipelines to deploy Kubernetes clusters, decommissioning old clusters, and provisioning credentials to access Kubernetes clusters.

Cloud Foundry BOSH makes it easy to deploy and maintain Kubernetes clusters on any IaaS, private or public. Adib Saikal offers a technical overview of the Pivotal Container Service (PKS), covering its architecture and how it leverages BOSH to deliver Kubernetes cluster demand. You’ll see just how easy it is to use PKS and BOSH to maintain your Kubernetes clusters.

This session is sponsored by Pivotal.
