Hands-on with Kubernetes, an open source cluster scheduler for containers

Friday, July 17, 2015 - 2:30pm to 4:30pm

Join us for a hands-on walkthrough of Kubernetes (http://kubernetes.io), an open source, cross platform cluster management and container orchestration platform that simplifies the complex tasks of deploying and managing your applications in Docker containers. You declare a desired state, and Kubernetes does all the work needed to create and maintain it. In this talk, we’ll look at the basics of Kubernetes and at how to map common applications to these concepts.

In this hands-on tutorial you'll use Kubernetes to provision a managed cluster of Virtual Machines. You’ll then take a standard web application and database, and deploy them as ‘Pods’ and ‘Services’ on Kubernetes. You’ll use Kubernetes tools to manage the application’s ‘Desired State' and you’ll also get to do a phased rollout of an updated version of the app using Services, Replication Controllers and Rolling Updates. You’ll leave this session with all the knowledge needed to get your own apps up and running on Kubernetes.
