Benefits of Taking the Less Traveled Road with Containers Infrastructure

Monday, March 25, 2019 - 1:40 pm1:55 pm

Eduard Iacoboaia,


After almost a year of running Openshift Origin we decided to migrate to a vanilla Kubernetes setup and during this phase, we had to take some hard decisions. This talk will explain the reasons, the benefits and the technical details of some not-mainstream (at that time) decisions we took.

Eduard Iacoboaia,

I'm a Senior Systems Administrator working for more than 5 years at During the first years, I worked on several teams, some of them managing infra for more than a hundred services. I saw the need for a change in process and I'm happy to see our containers infrastructure evolving from a hackathon project to an entire track in the core-infra department.
