Webinars Migrations Kubernetes

How we (begrudgingly) moved some of our services to Kubernetes


Honeycomb has finally (begrudgingly) joined the Kubernetes brigade, and we have now migrated our services to k8s. Why? That’s a GREAT question. Honeycomb CTO Charity Majors, Engineering Manager Ian Smith, and SRE Fred Hebert host a casual fireside chat to answer this. They discuss the technical inflection points that helped us decide it was time to migrate, as well as the non-technical reasons (spoiler alert: it’s not because it’s the trendy thing to do right now.)

Some key takeaways:
- Migrations are hard—why did we do this one?
- General migration strategies
- How are we monitoring our own Kubernetes stack

This session is best for:
- Architects looking for real understanding of their applications
- Developers who want visibility into the impact of their application’s behavior
- Anyone who’s ever felt that monitoring was insufficient
