Kubernetes Design Principles: Understand the Why – Saad Ali, Google

Kubernetes is quickly becoming indispensable for managing and deploying workloads on distributed systems across both cloud and on-prem environments. While most people are now familiar with how to use Kubernetes, few are aware of the “why” behind it? Why does the Kubernetes API look the way it does? Why do Kubernetes components only interact with each other through the Kubernetes API? Why is there a PersistentVolumeClaim object when you could easily reference a volume directly from a pod? To answer these questions and help you develop a deeper understanding of Kubernetes, this talk exposes the principles underpinning the design of Kubernetes.

  1. Excellent talk on kubernetes. I’m new to this tech, coming from Hadoop world, this talk helped me to get understanding of the internals

  2. The single best video on YouTube that explicates the Kubernetes design philosophy. Very helpful.

  3. Thanks Saad, I enjoyed the presentation – a good starting primer as I get into Kubernetes

  4. We are awslagi team on Udemy. We are providing actual exam for GCP and AWS. We ensure you can pass the exam at the first attempt in the fastest and easiest way.

  5. Principles mentioned:
    1. Kubernetes APIs are declarative rather than imperative.
    2. The Kubernetes control plane is transparent. There are no hidden internal APIs.
    3. Meet the user where they are.
    4. Workload portability.

  6. please stop using the term slave or concentration camp or internment camp or 911 towers as descriptive terms in our field.
