On today’s episode of The New Stack Makers, we spoke with Deis Senior Software Engineer Kris Nova to get a glimpse behind the curtain of what’s to come from the Kubernetes AWS SIG during KubeCon EU. While some special interest groups can have hands-off organizations, Nova mentions that AWS has been instrumental in helping the SIG organize getting a Kubernetes AMI onto the Amazon Marketplace.
Pioneered by Weaveworks, the AMI for launching Kubernetes on AWS is a growing interest for many commercial and non-commercial Kubernetes open source developers. Having obtained sponsorship from the CNCF for the image, the SIG aims to continue its work throughout 2017 on the AMI.
1:46: Let’s start with the AWS effort. It seems like it’s really picking up momentum. Is that true, or not?
4:15: Where you are with things, what you’re planning, and what the requirements are that you’re making a part of it?
6:11: Why are you so interested in this effort around AWS — what is it that drives you?
11:32: So you also work on KOPS, tell us a bit about that.
13:34: When is that being released?
14:09: We’re here at KubeCon. What have been some of the exciting things you’ve seen announced here, or sessions you’ve attended?
