Is your On-prem K8s blender on fire? Let's figure out how to combine Kubernetes and BYO Infrastructure in a safe way that minimized operator risk. DevOps first, Margaritas after!

Kubernetes is hyped as the end of infrastructure; however, it's still mainly a public cloud only platform. This talk lives that the intersection of the dream of Kubernetes as the perfect platform abstraction and the reality of snow flaked on-premises operations.

We'll explore the requirements inside and outside of Kubernetes core operational needs, like load balancing and certificates, that make on-premises deployments tricky and discuss ways that to provide those services in a constructive, automated way. The goal is to provide a manageable list of considerations for people looking to manage their own Kubernetes deployments in cloud, on-premises or edge.

We'll also include bonus topics that relate to Day-2 ops for Kubernetes including: community cluster automation efforts, Kubernetes on metal, and immutable live-image installs.
