Viscosity Sessions: Database Track


Infrastructure as Code: Running an Enterprise Kubernetes Cluster in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) with Terraform

Tuesday June 12, 2018 | Session 8, 3:45 PM – 4:45 PM








Presenter: Erik Espinoza
Co-Presenter: Emanuel Alejandro Cifuentes
When: Tuesday June 12, 2018
Session 8, 3:45 PM – 4:45 PM
Room: Oceanic 3, Lobby/Third Level

This session will delve into using an “infrastructure as code” approach to deploy and manage a Kubernetes cluster in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) with Terraform.
Kubernetes has become the go-to platform to manage and deliver solutions in the cloud. With all the power Kubernetes provides, it comes with a steep learning curve. With all the concepts to cover, it can be difficult to determine which parts are relevant and require attention when deciding to deploy a cluster into a cloud environment. In this session, I will explore the use of Terraform, a tool for building, changing, and versioning infrastructure safely and efficiently. I will also cover an Oracle project called Terraform-Kubernetes-installer

We will explore HA recommendations as well as tasks such as deploying and scaling up and down a Kubernetes cluster—all this with the ability to keep track of infrastructure changes though versioning.

Join us at our special event on Monday night of Kscope following Community Night.
