episode 4: Pros And Cons Of Using Terraform With Kubernetes

On today’s Kubernetes Unpacked podcast we explore tradeoffs that come with using Terraform to manage Kubernetes. My guest is Luke Orellana, a Site Reliability Engineer at Microsoft who uses Kubernetes day to day. He’s also a HashiCorp Ambassador. In addition to the Terraform conversation, we discuss differences between managing VMs and Kubernetes. We also discuss Kubernetes benefits including self-healing, and downsides such as dealing with the complexity that comes from containers and microservices.
Other topics include:

* Ops vs. Devs using Kubernetes
* Using Terraform with Kubernetes and things to watch out for
* Skills gaps and learning curves
* Container visibility
* More
