Panel: Kubernetes at Web Scale on the Cloud

Although many architectural and design similarities exist between large scale Kubernetes footprints whether on-prem or in the cloud, there are also key differences. Gaining insight on these will help ensure your k8s scaling exercise in the cloud can be accelerated through application of best practices and avoidance of key roadblocks.
