Kubernetes is a cluster management tool open sourced by Google. On Software Engineering Daily, we’ve done numerous shows on how Kubernetes works in theory. Today’s episode is a case study in how to deploy Kubernetes to production at a company with existing infrastructure.


GolfNow is a fifteen year-old application written in C# .NET. It is a successful, growing business that is a division of NBC Sports. As GolfNow has grown, it has encountered scalability issues, and the engineering team at GolfNow decided to move its entire monolithic infrastructure to microservices running in Docker containers, managed by Kubernetes.
Sheriff Mohamed joins the show today to discuss migrating his company’s application to Kubernetes. It’s a great show for anyone who is moving a large team to Kubernetes, or considering the technology for their application.
