Kubernetes and OpenStack at Scale

Imagine being able to stand up thousands of tenants with thousands of apps, running thousands of Docker-formatted container images and routes, all on a self-healing cluster and elastic infrastructure. Now, take that one step further - all of those images being updatable through a single upload to the registry, and with zero downtime. In this session, you will see just that.

In this presentation, we will walk through a recent benchmarking deployment using Kubernetes and OpenStack on the Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s (CNCF's) 1,000 node cluster with OpenStack and Red Hat’s OpenShift Container Platform, the enterprise-ready Kubernetes for developers. 

You'll also what's been happening in subsequent rounds of testing in Red Hat's own SCALE lab and the CNCF cluster and how we are working with the relevant open source communities including OpenStack, Kubernetes, and Ansible to continue to raise the bar for horizontal scaling of these platforms via community powered innovation.

What can I expect to learn?

Attendees will learn about the preparation that was required to run Kubernetes on OpenStack at scale, the architecture of the resultant deployment and some of the issues and best practices identified along the way.

They will also learn how to gain access to the CNCF and OSIC clusters for their own community projects and how the results of these scale testing exercises are being shared with the relevant open source communities as we work together to raise the bar for horizontal scaling of these platforms.
