Container technologies, although not new, have increased their popularity in the past few years, with container orchestrators allowing companies around the world to adopt these technologies to help them ship and scale microservices with precision and velocity.
Kubernetes is currently the most popular container orchestration platform nowadays, and the one chosen by Datadog to run its infrastructure. We run dozens of clusters, with thousands of nodes, and we run them on different public clouds. How are our +1K engineers able to use this infrastructure platform successfully?
Join me in this talk for our story on what we learned while we scaled our Kubernetes clusters, the contributions to Kubernetes we made along the way, how we are building a development platform around it, and how you can apply those learnings when growing your Kubernetes clusters from a handful to hundreds or thousands of nodes.
