Dustin Kirkland: The questions that you’re afraid to ask about containers

Yesterday, I delivered a talk to a lively audience at ContainerWorld in Santa Clara, California.

If I measured “the most interesting slides” by counting “the number of people who took a picture of the slide”, then by far “the most interesting slides” are slides 8-11, which pose an answer the question:

“Should I run my PaaS on top of my IaaS, or my IaaS on top of my PaaS”?

In the Ubuntu world, that answer is super easy — however you like!  At Canonical, we’re happy to support:

  1. Kubernetes running on top of Ubuntu OpenStack
  2. OpenStack running on top of Canonical Kubernetes
  3. Kubernetes running along side OpenStack
In all cases, the underlying substrate is perfectly consistent:
  • you’ve got 1 to N physical or virtual machines
  • which are dynamically provisioned by MAAS or your cloud provider
  • running stable, minimal, secure Ubuntu server image
  • carved up into fast, efficient, independently addressable LXD machine containers
With that as your base, we’ll easily to conjure-up a Kubernetes, an OpenStack, or both.  And once you have a Kubernetes or OpenStack, we’ll gladly conjure-up one inside the other.

As always, I’m happy to share my slides with you here.  You’re welcome to download the PDF, or flip through the embedded slides below.
