Nov 29, 2022

Why Kubernetes Isn’t the Be All and End All Deployment Approach

Are containerized microservices always the best deployment approach?

Kubernetes has quickly become the default system for managing containerized applications across multiple hosts, but its use often lacks nuance.

Some are pointing out that Kubernetes can potentially add unnecessary complexity to your environment.

In today’s episode, Ádám Márton Beke, DevOps Engineer at CGI, chats to Elias about the limits of automation in migrations, why he doesn’t always recommend K8s for deployment, and more.

What's in it for you:

  1. Why you should do trial migrations before production
  2. The challenges of automation in production servers
  3. What is toil and why it should be automated
  4. Why Kubernetes shouldn't be the default answer to every question about infrastructure
