Using services outside Kubernetes from Kubernetes with the Service Catalog

Ara Pulido (Bitnami)
2:00pm–2:30pm Monday, October 1, 2018
Cloud Computing Day with Kubernetes
Location: Sutton Center

Combining Kubernetes with external services available from public cloud providers can be a powerful way to deploy cloud native applications. Developers can focus on deploying their applications to Kubernetes, while delegating things like database management to a public cloud managed service. The Service Catalog bridges these two worlds by allowing developers instantiate services outside Kubernetes directly from the Kubernetes cluster.

Ara Pulido demonstrates how the Service Catalog allows users to build hybrid applications that use best-of-breed cloud services and custom-made Kubernetes applications running in a Kubernetes cluster. Ara also shares public cloud-ready Helm charts and explains how to manage these services from Kubeapps, a Kubernetes application dashboard.
