Earlier this month, Compose’s JP Phillips (@jipperinbham) gave a talk at CoreOS Fest, “Data Pipelines Made Easier with Kubernetes.” JP joins the New Builders to share a little bit about his talk (3:06) and broader issues around containers and open source, including the current state of Kubernetes (7:24), the role of Compose Transporter as an ETL pipeline (11:05), CoreOS’s etcd and the emergence of zetcd to serve ZooKeeper requests (13:30), and how Compose’s Governor project (providing autofailover and HA for PostgreSQL) laid the groundwork for Patroni (15:13).

You can find new episodes of The New Builders on developerWorks TV and SoundCloud. Find out more about IBM Watson Data Platform at Contact host Jim Young on Twitter (@JW_Young) or email ( The show’s music is provided by School for Robots. Check them out at!
