There are a variety of tools available that make it easier to offer and manage third party services (open source and commercial) on Kubernetes. In this conversation we will provide an overview of common service patterns for certain use cases, and open up to a deeper conversation including demos!

Kubernetes runs more than custom applications. Each day there are more third party services being offered with Kubernetes-native deployment options. With tools like Helm, Operator Framework, and Service Catalog available; it can be overwhelming to to differentiate between these options and understand what is the right tool(s) for the job at hand.

In this conversation, we will take a practical approach to compare and contrast different tools and patterns for creating, managing, and consuming 3rd party services on Kubernetes. In the morning 20 minute session, we will identify common service deployment patterns including platform add-ons, shared-instance deployments, dedicated instance deployments, and on-demand services running outside the cluster.

Then in the afternoon we will continue the conversation and discuss the tools that benefit these patterns, considering the needs of both Platform Operators (visibility, security) and Developers (choice and flexibility, ease-of use). Demos included!
