Platform Infrastructure and The Missing Pieces On The Node: Systemd, Kubernetes, and Aurae

Spending 6+ years building and operating production platform infrastructure on top of Kubernetes has left many scars in my engineering tenure. In this session we begin to unpack what I consider to be the main operational risks of today, while exploring which systems we can influence to start pointing the industry towards a better tomorrow.

What are the main operational problems with modern platform infrastructure today? Which systems can we change to begin to influence to shift the industry? How do we maintain backwards compatibility while also getting systems like Kubernetes off to future-forward state?
