Elastic cloud bursting with Virtual Kubelet and KIP
2020-04-01, 07:45–08:15, Track 1 (UTC)

This talk introduces a brand new open source provider for virtual kubelet called KIP (Kubernetes Cloud Instance Provider). KIP enables Kubernetes control plane to consume cloud agnostic right sized cost optimized compute instance for your Kubernetes pods without having to manually curate and maintain cloud vendor specific pet worker nodes. Cloud bursting demo included!


Tired of hand curating pet worker nodes on each cloud provider? Worried about underutilization of compute on your kubernetes clusters? Wonder if your control plane can ship pods to a different cloud provider? This talk introduces a brand new open source provider for virtual kubelet called KIP (Kubernetes Cloud Instance Provider). KIP enables Kubernetes control plane to consume cloud agnostic right sized cost optimized compute instance for your Kubernetes pods without having to manually curate and maintain cloud vendor specific pet worker nodes.
