How We Migrated a Fortune 500 Healthcare Company to Kubernetes in 7 months

At the beginning of 2019, Chris Nuland and his team were tasked with migrating a large Mesosphere DC/OS cluster with hundreds of running containers to Kubernetes for a Fortune 500 healthcare company. The team needed to finish it within 7 months to allow the sunsetting of DC/OS before the cluster’s end of life. They also needed to containerize a couple hundred applications and deploy them into the newly built cluster during the migration. Fortunately, they met the deadline.

Now, they’re sharing the technical and onboarding challenges they faced during the migration, how they scaled each migration path, and how the process would look different today given many of the migration tooling advantages found in the Konveyor Community open source tool suite. Attendees will learn both tools and tips they can use for their own migration projects.

Christopher Nuland is an Architect at Red Hat.
