Container Engines with David Aronchick and Chen Goldberg

Kubernetes makes it easier for engineering teams to manage their distributed systems architecture. But it’s still not simple to deploy and operate a Kubernetes cluster. Google Container Engine (GKE) is a managed control plane for Kubernetes. Just as developers can use Google App Engine to easily deploy monolithic apps against a platform as a service, we can use Google Container Engine to deploy microservices against a platform as a service.

David Aronchick and Chen Goldberg work on Google Container Engine, and they join the show to explain why platform as a service container engines are useful. Google is not the only cloud provider with a container engine–Amazon ECS and Azure Container Engine also allow you to run containers in a managed fashion.
