Kubernetes Operations with Brian Redbeard

In the last four years, CoreOS has been at the center of enterprise adoption of containers. During that time, Brian Harrington (or “Redbeard”) has seen a lot of deployments. In this episode, Brian discusses the patterns he has seen among successful Kubernetes deployments–and the pitfalls of the less successful.

How should you manage configuration? How can you avoid IP address overlap between containers? How should you log and monitor your Kubernetes cluster–and whose responsibility is it to set all that stuff up?

Brian also discusses the motivation for multi-cloud deployments, and how to implement multi-cloud Kubernetes.

CoreOS offers a distributed systems management tool called Tectonic, which uses Kubernetes for container orchestration. In a time where there are lots of options to choose from when it comes to managed Kubernetes providers, it was great to hear Brian describe some of the architectural decisions for building Kubernetes into Tectonic.
