This episode of the O’Reilly Podcast, features a conversation on serverless and Kubernetes, with Kelsey Hightower, developer advocate for Google Cloud Platform at Google (and co-author of Kubernetes: Up and Running), and Chris Gaun, Kubernetes product manager at Mesosphere.

Discussion points:

  • Hightower and Gaun agree that the biggest issue people face when deciding to start using Kubernetes is an underestimation of the learning curve.
  • Whether or not there is a competition between Kubernetes containers and serverless
  • Considerations when attempting to move an existing application to a serverless architecture
  • The new open source frameworks that work on Kubernetes (including Kubeless and OpenFaaS)
  • Workflow engines being used on top of Kubernetes (including Kubeflow and Argo)
  • Security issues regarding Kubernetes clusters

This post is a collaboration between Mesosphere and O’Reilly. See our statement of editorial independence.
