"Kubernetes - Ready for production?"

There is no doubt that Kubernetes and the use of containers in production, is some of the most sought-after commodities for developers today. There is however a tendency for organizations to be reluctant towards using Kubernetes in production – helped along by the immense complexity of running Kubernetes at-scale as well as all the surrounding, but important, enablers such as: Service Mesh (E.g. Istio), Networking, Security, Charting (E.g. Helm), Management, Monitoring, KaaS (Kubernetes-as-a-service), etc.
But is it all this opposition, in reality just based on old news and fear, or are there still areas to be aware of in regard to the production maturity of Kubernetes and it’s enablers? We take a close look and give you the insights needed, to make the right decision for you and your organization.

"Towards consistent and repeatable infrastructure at Umbraco"

How we use Infrastructure as Code with Terraform, our approach to consistent and automated infrastructure provisioning across Development and Production environments. From wild wild west towards a reliable setup in the Cloud. How did we (Umbraco) move away from manual processes when working in Azure, towards using Infrastructure as Code with Terraform? Our approach to consistent and automated infrastructure provisioning across Development and Production environments with a live demo.
