OpenStack and k8s are often pitted against one another as if they are incompatible and you have to choose between them which simply isn’t true. Not only that, there are numerous use cases where operators run Kubernetes on top of OpenStack, they run Kubernetes supplemented with OpenStack services, or they run a containerized OpenStack. In this talk, attendees will learn about how companies can and ARE using Kubernetes with OpenStack. Viewers will walk away with a better understanding the configurations possible and that Kubernetes and OpenStack are like peanut butter and jelly.
