Submitted by Karthik Nagasubramanian on Feb 24, 2020
Abstract : We would want to share the journey of migrating our services to Docker plus Kubernetes ecosystem
Target Audience : SREs, DevOps , Technical folks who want to containerize their services
Description of the Session : Exotel is a “Cloud-Telephony startup” that is 8 years old now . We have all our microservices in AWS on EC2. Over the last year we are on a journey of platform transformation which involves moving all our microservices to Dockers managed by Kubernetes(EKS). With this an entirely new CI-CD pipeline that implements Exotel’s Development process has been built using some of the open source tools like new version of Jenkins for CI plus argoCD for CD . We have also introduced centralised config management , better log management through open source tools . All of this has helped us to achieve the primary objectives of “Dev=QA=Prod” plus “Increased Dev Productivity”. We would want to share this entire journey as a talk .
