Philips Hue is one of the leading global Internet of Things platforms and has integrations with Amazon Echo, Google Home, IFTTT & Nest to make your lights work for you. The platform has grown considerably during the past years and to accommodate this has been migrated towards Google Container Engine (Kubernetes) at the end of 2015.
We needed to find out how to do zero downtime deployments, grasp how scaling works in Kubernetes, provide ourselves with monitoring and logging and above all find out how to do all these things and more while staying agile in the process. Grab something to drink and enjoy a deep dive into all the things we have encountered while running on Kubernetes.
