By themselves, containers offer benefits for making sure a development environment represents a production environment, but that doesn’t necessarily translate back into having a replicable production environment that can scale up. That’s where container orchestration technology shines, such as the open-source Kubernetes.
In this September 5th, 2019 presentation, Chris Forrence does an overview of Kubernetes, why it may be a good solution for your use-case (or not), and goes through the steps to spin up a Kubernetes cluster that’d be an alternative to a typical LAMP setup!
