As a reply to Zalando's "Running 80+ clusters in production" post, someone asked whether this (80+ clusters) would not defeat "the purpose"? My answer would not fit in a Tweet, so here it is as a blog post.
I posted my previous blog post about Kubernetes failure stories on Hacker News (HN) last Sunday, exactly one week ago. Here is what happened afterwards.
I started to compile a list of public failure/horror stories related to Kubernetes. It should make it easier for people tasked with operations to find outage reports to learn from.
There is a large gap on this blog --- no posts since 2014! I don't even try to explain, so I will just try to reboot his blog and post more regularly. I took a close look at Hugo to replace Nikola as the static site generator. Hugo looks easy to use, but in the end I came to the conclusion that the content (writing blog posts!) should be the focus and I don't want to go down the rabbit hole of replacing my static site generator and/or theme (for now).
Installing and configuring a private Platform as a Service (PaaS) usually is not an easy task. Testing our (unreleased) Docker-based Pequod cloud solution becomes easier with our new single-node-cluster Vagrant box. I'll show you how to get a "complete" trial Pequod cluster up and running with Vagrant.
