Abstract of the talk…
Buy a ready off-the-shelf product, customize an existing open source project, or build your own distribution? When you can't go to the cloud and leverage its powerful features you have to make a choice. On-prem environments need more attention, but they also often can be more cost-effective and are highly coveted by the development and operations teams. In this talk, I will cover some of the most important topics related to building an on-prem Kubernetes platform and I will describe the most popular distributions.
Tomasz Cholewa is the co-founder of Cloud Code Labs and he believes that good applications deserve even better environments where they can spread their wings and it's his job to help you create them. To achieve it he uses cloud and containers, but mostly he listens carefully to understand and use the right mix of proper technology and processes around it. His field of expertise is public cloud (AWS), containers and their orchestration engines - OpenShift and Kubernetes.
