Colleagues Annegies van ‘t Zand and Wiender Sarup will share their knowledge and experiences at the virtual KuBeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2020 event. The speaker session is scheduled on Wednesday the 19th of August from 10:55 to 11:30.

Over the past year, Nationale-Nederlanden (NN) has built a managed Kubernetes platform for their DevOps teams. Now, a year later, we are managing over twenty Kubernetes clusters that are running multiple production workloads. Although Kubernetes is the main component, it turned out that lifecycle management and the reliable delivery of changes to in-use platforms proved to be the most challenging part. All-in-all there are fifteen components that provide all the platform features and services, so we had to get creative to make sure that we keep it up to date.

During this talk, we will share our solutions for setting up a platform delivery pipeline and the lifecycle management of our platform components. Fan-in/fan-out cluster deployments, platform integration tests, version dashboards and feature flagging are some of the subjects that we will address.
