From Containers to Kubernetes Operators
“Containers are the new ZIP format to distribute software” is a fitting description of today’s development world. However, it is not always that easy and this talk highlights the development of Elastic’s container strategy over time. In this talk, Philipp is going to talk about such points as:
Docker images: A new distribution model.
Docker Compose: Local demos and a little more.
Helm Chart: Going from demo to production.
Kubernetes Operator: Full control with upgrades, scaling, etc.
Besides the strategy, he is also going to discuss specific technical details and hurdles that appeared during the development. Or why the future will be a combination of Helm Chart and Operator (for now).
