Kubernetes and the Potential for Higher Level Interfaces

Kubernetes provides rock-solid APIs for building and running your distributed systems. Pods, Services and ReplicationControllers provide trustworthy and scalable abstractions that make solving real-world infrastructure problems simpler. But that doesn’t mean interacting with those low-level primitives will be the only option for developers and operators.

  • Discuss why different user interfaces match different types of user or organisation
  • Show how Deis v2 uses Kubernetes, building a familiar imperative interface on top of the Kubernetes API
  • Explore the use of Puppet for managing Pods, Services and Replication Controllers in Kubernetes, and why a declarative language has its advantages over raw data
  • Look around at other opportunities for alternative interfaces like OpenShift, Helm and Fabric8, and explore the topic of interoperability
