Utilising OSS to Operate a Centralised, Globally Distributed Cloud Platform

4th September 2019 in London at CodeNode

There are 2 other SkillsCasts available from Cloud Native September

Condé Nast International is home to some of the largest online publications in the world - including Vogue, GQ, Wired, and Vanity Fair. In an effort to provide a cohesive vision for these brands across more than 30 markets, a truly global platform was required. Utilising AWS and Kubernetes at its core, the platform officially launched in September 2018 and serves over 200 million unique visitors/month. Of course, operating Cloud Native Infrastructure is more than just spinning up a container orchestrator! Auxiliary services are required in order to operate it effectively and provide developers with a true platform experience. Open Source Software (OSS) forms the backbone for much of what we do. As such, this talk will be focusing on how Condé Nast International utilises OSS to effectively operate multiple Kubernetes clusters across the world, paying special attention to observability, testing, application delivery, and developer experience.
