2019-11-16, 14:45–15:15, The Theater

This talk introduces Lokomotive Kubernetes: an open source kubernetes distribution inspired by CoreOS Tectonic and built to run on Flatcar Container Linux, filling the gap between secure, cutting-edge and production-grade clusters.


This talk will introduce you to Lokomotive Kubernetes, an Opensource Kubernetes distribution inspired by CoreOS Tectonic and built to run on Flatcar Container Linux.

The new kid in town runs a self-hosted control-plane, is designed with security in mind (using PSPs too, Calico's security policy). It has support for experimental Linux kernel features using Flatcar Container Linux Edge channel. And it provides a solid base to run your production clusters as it is already handling >100000 requests per second of business-critical traffic.

This talk will give a technical overview of the distribution, the supported platforms, demo on how to deploy it and showcase the security features of it.
