the summer binge watching edition 📺

Welcome to a very special first day of summer binge watching edition of kubelist!

New! Kubernetes on a Timeline! The cool summer treat, that's easy and fun to eat! Grab one today from your local grocer's freezer aisle -- hmm, what? oh, that's Kubernetes on a Stick. This post's interactive timeline is still pretty great.

25 million users may be a distant aspiration for you; how about 600 pods, instead? In this post, Brendan Rius outlines some good tips for getting your infrastructure ready for when you begin to reach the limits of your existing node's capacities.

The kubelist editors will be the first to admit they are not the target audience for this blog post. Perhaps you are? Either way, more options for managed Kubernetes are always welcome.
