About the Talk

When rolling out new features for your business, it’s important to have a development cycle that can keep up with rapid iterations and changes. Go beyond setting up Kubernetes clusters to creating a faster development cycle that increases business efficiency, provides comprehensive observability, and enables faster recovery with troubleshooting techniques.

Whether you’re just getting started or are an active user of Kubernetes, this deployment starter kit will help you become productive from day one and focus on your business logic.

What You’ll Learn

  • How to get the best out of your Kubernetes investment while simplifying operations and controlling costs.
  • Why it’s worthwhile to build your own custom repeatable stack for specific day-2 operations.
  • What to consider when building your own Kubernetes starter kit — finding reliable, cloud-agnostic products and tools with predictable costs — for containerization, monitoring, logging, backup, ingress, advanced observability, GitOps, and progressive release.
