At Ably, we run a large scale production infrastructure that powers our customers’ real-time messaging applications around the world. Like in most tech companies, this infrastructure is largely software-based; also like in most tech companies, much of that software is deployed and runs in Docker containers.
As you might expect if you’ve been following the technology scene at all, the following question comes up a lot:
“So… do you use Kubernetes?”
Ably doesn’t, and Maik explains in this artiicle why.
