Recently, Kubernetes released version 1.5 of it's container orchestration platform. Many of you expressed interest in running stateful applications in containers with the eventual goal of running all applications on Kubernetes. If you have been waiting to try running a distributed database on Kubernetes, or for ways to guarantee application disruption SLOs for stateful and stateless apps, this release has solutions for you.
With StatefulSet and PodDisruptionBudget moving now to beta, these features provide an easier way to deploy and scale stateful applications, and make it possible to perform cluster operations like node upgrade without violating application disruption SLOs.
The Multi-Cluster Federation allows you to manage several distributed clusters using single control plane, even when clusters reside in different clouds or even in your own datacenter.
We will be also covering some of the other exciting features such as:
- HA Masters
- Node conformance test
- Windows server containers
- Setting up K8s 1.5 clusters on EC2/GCE with federation
- Deploying multi-cluster application
