Kubernetes has established itself as the de-facto cloud native orchestration platform, allowing workloads to run seamlessly on public and private infrastructure. Kubernetes is typically deployed on virtual machines to segment computing resources and provide better utilisation.
Bare metal cloud based on Kubernetes is a different approach for Kubernetes deployment that is gaining momentum, especially in AI/ML, HPC, Telco, and other compute-heavy use cases. It provides greater flexibility, performance benefits, and control – making it easier and faster to ship and maintain complex, distributed applications and the physical machines they run on.
To unlock these benefits, it is crucial to coordinate workloads with bare metal cloud provisioning. Metal as a Service (MAAS) provides the missing link for Kubernetes clusters to run seamlessly and flexibly on on-premises bare metal clouds. Combining MAAS with a composable Kubernetes platform, such as Charmed Kubernetes, delivers businesses the full benefits of bare metal Kubernetes.
This technical session is best suited for IT Managers, Infrastructure architects, DevOps and developers interested in optimizing Kubernetes performance, hardware flexibility and removing operational bottlenecks.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
1) What is bare metal cloud using Kubernetes and how it differs from K8s on VMs
2) How to compose repeatable K8s deployments with Charmed Kubernetes
3) How MAAS addresses bare metal cloud provisioning
4) Canonical bare metal cloud K8s solution and benefits
5) How to set up a bare metal K8s lab using MAAS, Juju, LXD, and Charms
