  5. Using multiple clouds means you are exposed to all of

    the differences between them • UI, API, CLI • Product capabilities • Identity, Auth Cacophony
  6. Differences between clouds run deep, impact what you build, and

    how you operate • Networking • Storage • Autoscaling • App lifecycle Experience
  7. The logical solution to variations across platforms is new abstractions

  8. It’s very easy to accidentally depend on facets of a

    specific environment and get stuck Lock-In
  9. Mastering one cloud is hard; mastering multiple clouds can be

    overwhelming Training
  10. You don’t want to train your teams on multiple clouds

    You don’t want to tailor your deployments for each cloud Consistency

    / ops experience Highly portable workloads Kubernetes
  13. High-level enough to hide the worst differences between clouds Low-level

    the infrastructure Platform
  15. Kubernetes is not an island Ecosystem

  16. Numerous options and solutions exist, and people are ready to

    but it is not a solution on its own Future
