Deploying Big Data Platforms using Docker and Kubernetes


Kubernetes is a relatively new Apache Licensed project originating from Google that provides a framework for building clustered applications that run in Docker containers. This talk will begin with an introduction to the Kubernetes project and discuss the architectural principles behind the project. We will then explore walk-throughs of how to build and deploy scale out analytical applications, such as Apache Spark, using Kubernetes.
