Migrating to Kubernetes-enabled Applications @ La Redoute
La Redoute has a legacy platform mainly based on virtualization technologies, namely VMWare VSphere, managed by Puppet and Foreman, in a Continuous Integration process.
Our target is to migrate to a Cloud-Native platform based on Kubernetes ecosystem and Continuous Delivery mindset.
We did progress on the maturity levels, passing the exploration and first production-ready applications, and want to share our learnings, decisions, results, organisation, architecture we did implement on our journey.
Our main objective is to share our improvements with regards to the deployment pipeline lead-time removing bottleneck in the resource provisioning, and share concrete examples of migrating applications to a Kubernetes-ready environment.
