Watched Brendan Burns' talk, A Technical Overview of Kubernetes (CoreOS Fest 2015) .
Quick recap: it provides production-grade container orchestration as a collection of small, decoupled components, with the goal of having teams manage and understand only the parts that they care about, rather than treating your container platform as a single monolithic stack.
- Learn more about containers. Read up on Docker or follow tutorials/documentation @ https://kubernetes.io/.
- Learn about CoreOS.
- CoreOS vs. other Linux flavors? Run on bare metal vs. ESX?
- Security. If K8s exposes a single giant pool of compute, how do I maintain segmentation of network access and system access between many distinct platforms? How do I isolate PCI/SOX/HIPPA networks to minimize audit scope?
- Data persistence. How does my big, high traffic, single master Postgres database fit into the K8s stack, if at all?
- Deployments. How do I allow developers to deploy freely to dev/test but limit their ability to deploy directly to production?
