Out-of-the-box Kubernetes makes it easy to deploy and scale your applications within one Kubernetes cluster in one single region. But with the Kubernetes Federation API and the use of service meshes like Istio, it’s also possible to deploy an application over multiple clusters in different regions, so that it becomes truly highly available even if a complete region fails.

Bastian Hofmann explains how to set the Kubernetes cluster federation up and how to deploy your applications to make best use of it, especially regarding monitoring, persistent storage, latencies, and data integrity.

Prerequisite knowledge

What you'll learn

  • Discover how to set up Kubernetes cluster federations, how to deploy an application to multiple clusters, and how to route traffic between the clusters
  • Learn what you have to keep in mind regarding monitoring, state, latencies and data integrity
