On-Premises Kubernetes

Experience Kubernetes on bare-metal

This five-day guided hackathon focuses on how to setup a production-ready, resilient Kubernetes cluster running on bare-metal. From provisioning to tuning you will get hands-on with the steps required to effectively run Kubernetes on-premises.

Building and running on-premises kubernetes clusters requires careful infrastructure planning from networking, through compute power and up to storage in order to run kubernetes workloads successfully.

Who should attend?

This workshop is for Systems Administrators, Infrastructure Architects, and DevOps Engineers who want to take advantage of Kubernetes in their own data centre.

What can I expect from the workshop?

The workshop will be highly interactive, together with our Cloud Native engineers you will develop an understanding of how to approach provisioning a Kubernetes cluster within your own on-premises environment.
