This talk was given on November 8 at the OpenStack Summit Sydney event.
Kubespray (formerly Kargo) – is a project under Kubernetes community umbrella. From the technical side, it is a set of tools, that bring the possibility to deploy production-ready Kubernetes cluster easily.
Kubespray supports multiple Linux distributions to host the Kubernetes clusters (including Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS/RHEL and Container Linux by CoreOS), multiple cloud providers to be used as an underlay for the cluster deployment (AWS, DigitalOcean, GCE, Azure and OpenStack), together with the ability to use Bare Metal installations. It may consume Docker and rkt as the container runtimes for the containerized workloads, as well as a wide variety of networking plugins (Flannel, Weave, Calico and Canal); or built-in cloud provider networking instead.
In this talk we will describe the options of using Kubespray for building Kubernetes environments on OpenStack and how can you benefit from it.
What can I expect to learn?
Active Kubernetes community members, Ihor Dvoretskyi and Rob Hirschfeld, will highlight the benefits of running Kubernetes on top of OpenStack, and will describe how Kubespray may simplify the cluster building and management options for these use-cases.
Ihor is a Developer Advocate at Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), focused on the upstream Kubernetes-related efforts. He acts as a Product Manager at Kubernetes community, leading Product Management Special Interest Group with the goals of growing Kubernetes as a #1 open source container orchestration platform.
Rob Hirschfeld has been involved in OpenStack since the earliest days with a focus on ops and building the infrastructure that powers cloud and storage. He’s also co-Chair of the Kubernetes Cluster Ops SIG and a four term OpenStack board member.
