The presentation discusses the implementation of a Kubernetes-based platform for the manufacturing industry, emphasizing the importance of independence, automation, and declarative management tools.
- The platform is designed to be independent of the cloud and adaptable to different customer needs and infrastructures
- Automation and declarative management tools are crucial for repeatability, testability, and scalability
- Services should be consumed as a service to make them quick and easy to use
- Independence is important for disaster recovery and partial connectivity cases
The speaker mentions a use case where the platform was used for a manufacturing line where people upload pictures and scan them. The quality of the production line affects the need for additional nodes for the Kafka service, highlighting the importance of optimizing the lower infrastructure.
