When 2 years ago Datadog decided to move its infrastructure platform to Kubernetes we didn’t expect to find so many roadblocks, but ingesting trillions of datapoints per day in a reliable fashion requires pushing the limits of cloud computing.
Creating and managing dozens of clusters, with thousands of nodes each and operating in several clouds was a challenging but rewarding learning experience. In this session Ara Pulido, Developer Advocate, will chat with Laurent Bernaille, Staff Engineer at Datadog and part of the team that created Datadog’s Kubernetes platform. We’ll cover the challenges we found creating and scaling Datadog’s Kubernetes platform and how we overcame them. The discussion will include scaling the control plane, security, certificates, networking, our open source contributions, and more!
