Platform9 offers a SaaS hybrid cloud solution, managing +300 cloud regions & thousands of nodes for our users, globally. Our offering is built on top of Kubernetes on bare-metal. When running Kubernetes on a public cloud, the cloud providers take care of critical capabilities such as storage, Loadbalancers, DNS, Ingress, etc. But if you want to take advantage of K8s on your own bare-metal infrastructure, things get trickier. This talk dives into the challenges we needed to overcome to run production Kubernetes on bare-metal. We share best practices, design considerations & lessons learned to accelerate your journey to take advantage of K8s on bare-metal datacenters. We will also show a live demo- deploying a multi-master bare-metal Kubernetes cluster, configuring an ingress controller integrated with Let’s Encrypt, and a persistent storage backend. With these added to your bare-metal K8s cluster, it will be as powerful as running on public clouds, but with bare-metal performance!
