About Mandy Waite

Mandy works at Google as a Developer Advocate for Google Cloud
Platform and to make the world a better place for developers building
applications for the Cloud:

  “I came to Google from Sun Microsystems where I worked with partners
  on performance and optimisation of large scale applications and
  services before moving on to building an ecosystem of Open Source
  applications for OpenSolaris. In my spare time I’m learning Japanese
  and play the guitar.”

The Keynote: So, I have all these Docker containers, now what?

You’ve solved the issue of process-level reproducibility by packaging
up your apps and execution environments into a number of Docker
containers. But once you have a lot of containers running, you’ll
probably need to coordinate them across a cluster of machines while
keeping them healthy and making sure they can find each other. Trying
to do this imperatively can quickly turn into an unmanageable mess!
Wouldn’t it be helpful if you could declare to your cluster what you
want it to do, and then have the cluster assign the resources to get
it done and to recover from failures and scale on demand?

Kubernetes (http://kubernetes.io) is an open source, cross platform
cluster management and container orchestration platform that
simplifies the complex tasks of deploying and managing your
applications in Docker containers. You declare a desired state, and
Kubernetes does all the work needed to create and maintain it. In this
talk, we’ll look at the basics of Kubernetes and at how to map common
applications to these concepts. This will include a hands-on
demonstration and visualization of the steps involved in getting an
application up and running on Kubernetes.
