Initial thoughts on Google Container Engine

I’ve just started playing with GCE and so far I’m very impressed. I containerised my blog this morning and deployed it to GCE without any problems at all. Kubernetes has been an absolute pleasure to work with and makes deploying containers into a cluster extremely simple.

I currently work as a Devops consultant and while I get to play with Docker more or less daily, I’m yet to deploy containers into production. The next few weeks will revolve around watching the metrics and uptime to see how stable Docker containers are in production. I’ll also do some load testing to see how my Kubernetes cluster performs under duress.

Definitely more to come…
