In this episode

You may already think of Kubernetes as a container orchestration platform. With Crossplane, Kubernetes can become an infrastructure and/or application orchestration platform as well.

Kubernetes is much more than a platform that runs containers. We can extend it to manage (almost) any infrastructure, like AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, and other cloud resources. The way to do this is to use Custom Resource Definitions (CRDs) to add custom resources, coupled with operators that will manage said resources. Crossplane additionally allows you to create compositions (groups of cloud resources) to allow teams to package and distribute complex infrastructure setups.

Watch this episode to learn how we can accomplish this and many other goals with Crossplane!

Whitney Lee

Whitney traveled the scenic route but is chuffed to have found her way to Kubernetes and cloud technologies. Whitney began her professional career as a fine artist before owning her own photography business for over a decade. After a year-long tour playing keys in the band Mutual Benefit, Whitney went back to school in 2019 to learn full-stack web development. After graduation, Whitney was employed by IBM as a cloud developer, using none of the skills she had just learned. She developed an insatiable appetite for all things cloud, and a passion for teaching others as she acquired knowledge herself. Whitney has made many cloud-related lightboard videos that together have 400,000+ views. At VMware, you can find Whitney writing lighthearted yet informative guides, or behind the lightboard during her weekly streaming show ϟ Enlightning. Whitney’s contagious excitement drives her to collaborate and play!
