05-18, 17:55–18:25 (UTC), Main Hall

In this talk, we will explore our journey scaling from a couple of hundred nodes to several thousand Kubernetes nodes. Tales will be told on how to scale etcd itself and what a health check every 30 seconds does to the apiserver when running at several thousand nodes.
