What Does “Production Ready” Really Mean for a Kubernetes Cluster?

Lucas presented at KubeCon EU and discussed what a production ready cluster is and how this depends largely on your goals and budget. He dives into some of the technical aspects of getting your cluster production ready by looking at security and in particular TLS certificates, and what high availability actually means. He wraps up by providing an overview of a GitOps approach to cluster management that is currently being discussed in the Cluster Lifecycle SIG.
