Day 1 Closing Keynote: Kubernetes Cluster Federation ("Ubernetes")

In this talk, we will first cover, in some depth, the kinds of deployment challenges for which Cluster Federation affords elegant solutions, including:

- Resilience against data center (or more precisely availability zone) outages. You don't want your customers to experience a service outage just because your cloud provider had an "oops" in one of their availability zones, do you?
- Migrating your application from your on-premise data center to a cloud provider can be challenging. And what about rollback if it doesn't work quite as expected? Similarly, what happens when your company decides to change their preferred cloud provider? Apps don't migrate themselves, do they?
- Capacity overflow - you have on-premise data centers, but what if they're not big enough to handle large traffic spikes? Imagine if you could burst into cloud capacity when the next web mob comes knocking on your front door, credit cards in hand?
- Regulatory enforcement and auditing - imagine if you could just label your applications as requiring EU-compliant hosting, and have the deployment system make it so, despite the other constraints of capacity, performance, authorization etc?
Then we will dive into a small set of primitives that make these kinds of challenges much easier, including:

- cross-cluster load balancing - how to make sure that your customer's web request goes to the right place?
- location affinity - do your containers care whether they're on the same LAN as each other? If so, how much?
- cross-cluster scheduling - which containers should go in which data centers, on which cloud providers?
- cross-cluster service discovery - if your containers are in different data centers, on different cloud providers, how do they find each other in a reliable way?
- cross-cluster monitoring and auditing - how do you see all of these heterogenous clusters a logical whole?
Finally, we will cover some implementation details, and what the roadmap for Ubernetes looks like today.
