Ship It! Ship It! #18

Bare metal meets Kubernetes

In this episode, Gerhard talks to David and Marques from Equinix Metal about the importance of bare metal for steady workloads. Terraform, Kubernetes and Tinkerbell come up, as does Crossplane - this conversation is a partial follow-up to episode 15.

David Flanagan, a.k.a. Rawkode, needs no introduction. Some of you may remember Marques Johansson from The new setup for 2019. Marques was behind the Linode Terraforming that we used at the time, and our infrastructure was simpler because of it!

This is not just a great conversation about bare metal and Kubernetes, there is also a Rawkode Live following up: Live Debugging Changelogโ€™s Production Kubernetes ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

I loved this episode! ๐Ÿ˜

I also really enjoyed the live debugging with both of these hosts! I definitely look forward to the follow up episode for debugging changelog on rawkodeโ€™s YT channel. I am still very new in the k8s field, and seeing how other others are debugging and asking questions about their systems is really enlightening to me ๐Ÿ™‚

Lastly I loved how you asked them about their favorite episodes on rawkodeโ€™s YT. Havenโ€™t watched them yet, but hearing about how these hosts learn ( by breaking things ) and their outlets for learning was really enlightening for me ( since I am still so new ). ๐Ÿ˜Š

really awesome episode, thanks @gerhard!

my edit option disappeard, so posting a reply to my comment ๐Ÿ˜…

also, really crazy how everything panned out when you attempted to work at packet ๐Ÿ˜… I wonder what that future would have looked like ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜

P.S. I have been using packet/equinix metal for quite a while ( probably about 3/4 years now ) because of a project that I have a CI/CD pipeline which builds kali linux vagrant boxes weekly with HashiCorpโ€™s packer + 3 hypervisor providers ( libvirt/vmware/virtualbox ), so I have an up to date VM for my day job ( pentesting ). They have such an awesome service and I love their community presence as well ๐Ÿ˜. I canโ€™t say enough nice things about that company ๐Ÿ˜
