Kubernetes Virtualization with Paul Czarkowski

Modern server infrastructure usually runs in a virtualized environment. Virtual servers can exist inside of a container or inside of a virtual machine. Containers can also run on virtual machines. Kubernetes has allowed developers to manage their multiple containers, whether those containers are running in VMs or on bare metal (servers without VMs).

As organizations expand their Kubernetes deployments, the overhead of those deployments is becoming a relevant concern. So-called “Kubesprawl” can occur within organizations due to a lack of best practices on when new clusters should be spun up or spun down, and when clusters should be shared by teams or shared by services.

Paul Czarkowski is a principal technologist with Pivotal. He joins the show to discuss virtualization, Kubernetes, and the state of the cloud native ecosystem.
