How would you describe and set up a “production ready” Kubernetes cluster? How are the buzzword terms “production ready” and “highly available” defined anyway?

Can a cluster be created so that it’s end-to-end secured, has no single points of failure, is upgradable without control plane downtime and is conformant?

If you have access to automated infrastructure, e.g. via a Cluster API controller, you should be able to do CI testing of your cluster, as well as CD of new configuration and versions. Some call this pattern “GitOps”; to write the desired cluster state declaratively and let a controller reconcile the cluster state.
By the end of this talk, you should be able to tell:
- What you may consider a “production ready” cluster to be and identify the moving parts
- How to secure cluster component traffic
- How to minimize failure points
- How to manage clusters using the Cluster API
