“Containers are the new ZIP format to distribute software” is a fitting description of today’s development world. However, it is not always that easy and this talk highlights the development of Elastic’s container strategy over time:
- Docker images: A new distribution model.
- Docker Compose: Local demos and a little more.
- Helm Chart: Going from demo to production.
- Kubernetes Operator: Full control with upgrades, scaling,…
Besides the strategy we are also discussing specific technical details and hurdles that appeared during the development. Or why the future will be a combination of Helm Chart and Operator (for now).
