Liquid Metal: multi-cluster Kubernetes on bare metal with microVMs

Das Schiff platform from Deutsche Telekom is an example of the benefits of a GitOps-driven, fleet-managed platform for telecom operators. A key enabler for rolling out Das Schiff to the edge is the ability to run Kubernetes on microVMs. This blog describes the core technology, jointly developed by Deutsche Telekom, Weaveworks and AWS, which significantly improves the efficiency of deployment of Kubernetes across bare-metal pools.

Managing Kubernetes with GitOps in a multi-cluster, multi-cloud world
