CERN operates 1000+ CMS websites as a SaaS running on Kubernetes. This expert panel of end users from CERN and engineers from Operator Framework will discuss lessons from CERN’s drupal operator including: - How a very small team used the operator pattern to automate and scale delivery of CMS websites. - How they balanced reusability and open source principles against integration with CERN’s specific compute environment and existing infrastructure services. - Operator SDK, its best practices, and things to avoid when developing an operator from scratch. - How Kubernetes enables isolation, multi-tenancy, and resource sharing. - Automated maintenance and monitoring. Following the initial discussion of approximately 20 minutes, we will leave substantial time for Q&A. The target audience is anyone who is planning to build a SaaS on Kubernetes or operate many instances of an application.
