3 Years of Running Operators in Production – A Reflection
Watch the Session and Learn How Operators Help You Automate Daily Operations
Sebastian Scheele, CEO & Co-Founder @ Kubermatic
In 2016, we were driven by the idea to find a generic way to run Kubernetes clusters everywhere. So far so good….but how exactly? Could it make sense to run Kubernetes in Kubernetes? Well, let’s give it a try.
This is how we started to build our first Kubernetes Operator to manage Kubernetes in Kubernetes in a scalable way. Early 2017, we first went into production with about a dozen of clusters on AWS. Meanwhile, we manage hundreds of clusters across large-scale multi-cloud deployments. More than three years after the start of this exciting journey, we look back on what we have learned and show how we plan to extend the operator paradigm to the edge.
