Kubernetes is a popular and rapidly-developing open source project from Google that provides (Docker) container cluster-management. Kubernetes can provide HA scheduling for any type of application, and in the case of this talk, a Galera cluster. This talk will explain to the user what exactly Kubernetes is, how it works, how the user can run Kubernetes, and importantly, how one can run a Galera cluster on Kubernetes. This talk will provide a demonstration of setting up Kubernetes on CoreOS, a new Linux distribution that has been rearchitected to provide features needed to run modern infrastructure by making it possible to run Docker containers across a cluster of machines, followed by the installation of a Galera cluster on this HA platform.
