The New York Times has been on the Internet since 1996. Long before most Internet or tech giants even existed. The Times is one of the most trafficked news sites on the Internet today with a fairly complex set of services and modules driving our internet presence.

We have been using public clouds since 2010 but In 2016 we decided to go all in with the intent to retire our data centers in 2018. As a result one of the biggest projects we undertook was moving our website, CMS and a slew of other internal tools to Amazon and Google's cloud offering. We jumped on the Kubernetes bandwagon and have had a hell of a ride. A lot of our learnings were not technical but cultural.

As we went down this path, we found ourselves embracing open standards and tools. We also had learned how to work with product teams who were at various levels of maturity and discipline w.r.t. CI/CD and SRE concepts.
