Relying upon the illusion of totally deterministic hardware and the subsequent locally optimal software design does not persist at scale.
When engaging computational systems at scale these issues are undeniably common knowledge. So we have google to thank for open sourcing their Kubernetes project, circa 2015.
(Picture one)Kubernetes Tribute here created with mini/dall-e model from huggingface[…]
Since being able to access the full dall-E model an update was in order with some enhanced remixes.
Kubernetes, a container orchestration system for automating software deployment, scaling, and management. Kubernetes delivers a more resilient and robust architecture.
This has allowed for the scaling of systems to:
While being administered and managed through interfaces like:
The cluster architecture is able to accomplish some more complex behaviors like self healing and some self organization.
Arguably the smoothest administrator interface experience is with Kubenav from your cellphone or desktop.
Longhorn: distributed block storage
Longhorn allows for basically single command setup of dynamically sized distributed block storage for k8s.
To flesh out this topic area going to split into a couple more posts, to be cont. […]
