Down the rabbit hole: containerizing your Drupal site on Kubernetes and deploying it the blue/green way
This session is about containerizing your Drupal site in Kubernetes (on Google Cloud) and deploying it with Jenkins and pipeline scripts.
We'll be using a method called "blue/green" deployments to dramatically minimize the downtime of your site and provide redundancy features / having some extra safety nets in case something goes wrong.
The Dutch Drupal Association connects Dutch Drupal professionals, agencies, users and (potential) businesses. We do this by organising events DrupalJam (450 people), SplashAwards (initiated in 2014) and Drupal Training Day (200+ students, now Drupal in a Day). Mainly run by a team of volunteers, organizing these (successful) takes up the bigger part of our (free) time.
We're all in Drupal business. And no matter what the agency size is, either it's a one-man shop or 100+ company, sales ups and downs happen everywhere. Have you faced the issue, when you can't handle the brand new client request because of the lack of your in-house team?
If that's typical for you at this stage or you see the potential risks in the upcoming future, let's discuss the ways how to find a balance between new sales opportunities and the team workload.
In this session, we will take a look at a trend called Infrastructure as Code (IaC), we are gonna take programming principles and try to apply them to how we organize and create our infrastructure. Finally, we will introduce drupaldocker.org and elaborate on why it's important to share the knowledge about basic principles and best practices, that should be featured by every project utilizing Dockerized environment.
Last year we made a huge step and open-sourced all the code that runs our production environment for everyone to see and contribute. But tech, that’s not what I’ll mainly talk about (ok a bit because it’s to see how we run Docker in Production).
