Keynote: Kubernetes and etcd Features That Unlocked 15k Node Clusters

Wojciech Tyczyński at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2020

In this presentation you will learn about improvements made to Kubernetes and etcd that unlocked running massive clusters with 15,000 nodes. We will show how we tackled this challenge from different angles focusing on its technical aspect. You will learn about the most important changes like watch bookmarks, etcd concurrent reads and more, but also our cooperation with other communities (e.g. golang). We will also describe how we approached validating our work and how real Kubernetes users helped us here.
