How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Container

Paul Bellamy, Monday , February 6, 12:00 - 12:40, B.CON

Going Cloud-Native and containerizing your infrastructure is a seismic shift in how you manage, understand, and deploy your application. Weaveworks has been running a cloud service with Kubernetes and Prometheus for over a year, and we've learned a lot about what works and what doesn't. You'll see epic fails we experienced so you don't have to, the tools we built to patch our workflow, and production outages we solved with detailed telemetry. You'll learn ways you're under-instrumenting your services, what you can do to fix it, and how to make sure your graphs aren't lies. Even deploying apps and managing your config can be difficult at scale, so you'll get a demo of the tools we've built to make sure our deploys are fast and understandable.
