About this Episode

In this episode of The New Stack Makers, TNS Editor Ben Ball spoke to Rimas Mocevicius, Operations Engineer at Clearbit. Rimas was one of the co-creators of the Helm project, a package manager for Kubernetes, which has since become part of Kubernetes.

We spoke to Rimas about Clearbit and how they’re currently using Kubernetes as well as the Deis Workflow Platform as a Service. Rimas has been a long time user of Kubernetes, and in the past worked at Deis, where he participated in creating Helm only two weeks on the job. He spoke to some of the reasons why Kubernetes and Deis Workflow works for Clearbit, including how Deis Workflow can help developers who are not as familiar with using Kubernetes. We also talked about some of the challenges he’s dealt with, including the operational challenge of getting Kubernetes running on AWS.
