The Kubernetes Hype - do you really need it?

By Renata Rocha

Elevator Pitch

K8S is everywhere today, and if you don’t LOVE it, you’re not cool. But does your infra really NEED it? A quick check on what K8S is, what it isn’t, what is it used for, why people love it and why it may not solve your problems at all!


The purpose is to explain quickly what Kubernetes does best, it’s major issues, understand how it became so popular so fast and ensure you make an informed decision about whether you should be using it as your solution or not. K8S is a complex and powerful tool, and like any other devops tools it has pros and cons, and those have to be pondered before a team commits to a migration.
