Kubernetes resilience is not enough: the journey to make a simple application resilient

Abstract

So you think that if you containerize your application and run in a Kubernetes environment, it will provide the resilience is expect. You are wrong…

This session will present the steps required to take a simple Kubernetes application and redesign it to be more resilient to disruptions.

We will talk about

  • how to loosely couple the components
  • the need to understand how open-source components work; and
  • how to choose components that will provide the required resilience

The audience will learn many insights on how to make applications resilient.
