I spoke about vendor neutrality in Kubernetes at KubeCON + CloudNativeCON Seattle 2018. As the number of cloud providers supporting Kubernetes continues to grow, we’ve had to make some significant changes in the project both technically and organizationally. This talk outlines a lot of the work I’ve been doing as a co-chair of the Kubernetes Cloud Provider SIG.Read More

My hope is that this post gives you enough context to use BGP in your own Kubernetes clusters (where it makes sense), especially for those who are running Kubernetes on-premise.Read More
