With growing demand for containers in the enterprise, Pearson chose to lay its foundation with Kubernetes. With 400+ development teams across varying business units, the platform is absolutely critical. Pearson had to move away from traditional large enterprise infrastructure and aggressively pursue the efficiencies only containerization can provide. In this talk we’ll walk through business and technical requirements, show how our project is exceeding expectations and discuss in depth a fully automated CD pipeline. In this talk we’ll demonstrate how we are building in security, quality assurance, abstracting away complexity, reducing overhead, aim to recover 10% of developers time, turned build tools into cattle, reduced deployment times and gained efficiencies in areas we are just beginning to understand. Throughout the presentation we’ll demonstrate our current use cases with Kubernetes to include automation, tools used and management of external resources from within Kubernetes. The audience should prepare for a session of demos, releases and tech they can take advantage of immediately. This represents the story to date of an in-flight engineering project to modernize the digital estate of a global enterprise organization and how scale of the operation is leading us to challenge many established beliefs. Attendees will walk away with everything from workflows, to code, stories and an enterprise production use case which they can use to get started in their own endeavors.
