Challenges in Building a Multi-Cloud-Provider Platform With Managed Kubernetes
Building a cloud-agnostic platform used to be a challenging task as one had to deal with a large number of different cloud APIs and service offerings. Today, as most Cloud providers are offering a managed Kubernetes solution (e.g., GKE, AKS, or EKS), it seems like developers could simply build a platform based on Kubernetes and be cloud-agnostic. While this assumption is mostly correct, there are still a number of differences and pitfalls when deploying across those managed Kubernetes solutions.
This talk discusses the experiences made while building the ArangoDB Managed Service offering across and GKE, AKS, or EKS.
