Kubernetes - 7 lessons learned from 7 data centers in 7 months

Learn from the rapid journey that Adobe Advertising Cloud took to reach a multi-cloud/multi-region deployment and the lessons learned along the way. Mike will cover 7 challenging scenarios with StatefulSets, GitOps, autoscaling for machine learning and auto-remediation. Go behind the scenes of the wins & failures to see how the engineering and platform teams prevented the derailing of their Kubernetes journey. From developing with spot instances in dev to multi-cloud in production, the cloud platform team has dealt with an interesting set of challenges. As Mike will show, even challenging requirements can lead to successful deployments.

What can I expect to learn?

Attendees will learn from our technical challenges, successes, and failures during our migration from VMs to Kubernetes. They’ll hear about edge-cases, system failures, process misses and data loss along with how solutions like Helm and Prometheus enabled us to move quickly to solve our problems. Each of the 7 scenarios I’ll be discussing are from real-world, production deployments.
