About this event

Learn about container orchestration at scale with Kubernetes.

Kubernetes 1.0 was an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) developed by Google for running stateless apps in a single cluster. Now, 3 releases later, we're building on that foundation to do things like run stateful, data-heavy applications, and to federate clusters together for global low latency, high availability apps. In short, we're letting you run like Google, whoever and wherever you are.  Come along to learn a little of the Kubernetes history, and some specifics about new features including stateful application (PetSets) and cluster federation.
