OPEN TALK: From Containers to Kubernetes Operators

Philipp Krenn
Elastic, Developer Advocate

Philipp lives to demo interesting technology. Having worked as a web, infrastructure, and database engineer for over ten years, Philipp is now a developer advocate and community team lead in EMEA at Elastic — the company behind the Elastic Stack consisting of Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash.

Containers are the new ZIP format to distribute software" is a fitting description of today's development world. However, it's not always that easy and this talk highlights the development of Elastic's container strategy over time:
- Docker images: A new distribution model.
- Helm Chart: Going from demo to production.
- Kubernetes Operator: Day two operations with upgrades and scaling.

Besides the strategy, we'll discuss specific technical details and hurdles that appeared during the development. Or why the future is a combination of Helm Chart and Operator.
