We're heavily and increasingly using “polycloud” Kubernetes (k8s) for our production infrastructure. Before we moved to a dual region, dual public cloud environment at BookingGo, we had envisioned retaining our in-house based model and building ourselves within both our Datacentres. To begin this process, we started to build out a 3 phase environment (dev/stage/prod) but ran into a number of bugs, restrictions, and gotchas. This is essentially a war-stories talk on how not to deploy Kubernetes. Importantly, we will highlight the role open tooling has to play in the Open Infrastructure concept.
