Testing at Scale with Cluster API and Kubemark

Kubernetes provides many APIs and features which give users the ability to better control the lifecycle and maintenance of their clusters. But one of the most challenging tasks when creating and designing these types of applications is testing at scale. Although Kubernetes is relatively easy to scale, the costs associated with scaling can easily overwhelm a development team. Enter the Cluster API Kubemark provider.

Cluster API provides users with a declarative API for addressing and maintaining their clusters. Kubemark is a testing tool which allows users to create “hollow” Kubernetes nodes which use minimal resources and are ideal for testing scale interactions. The Cluster API Kubemark provider empowers users to create entire clusters of hollow nodes with just a few Kubernetes manifests. This combination is perfect for interactions that require adding, removing, or modifying large numbers of nodes within the cluster.

Attendees should expect to learn how they can leverage Cluster API and the Kubemark provider to create Kubernetes clusters for testing large scale lifecycle interactions. They will also see how to deploy Cluster API using only a container runtime and a single hardware instance, as well as how to integrate their applications into this environment.
