Kubernetes supports large clusters according to the docs, but how does it actually scale? Who came up with those limits and numbers? What are the actual numbers? To challenge this we built a CI/CD environment geared towards deploying, and running workloads to test Kubernetes at scale.

Our stack consists of Jenkins Pipeline and Ansible for automation, Kubernetes, various public cloud platforms and other Open Source projects. The stack has pushed the performance and scalability limits of Kubernetes with kubelet, control plane and cluster density focused tests. In this presentation we will explore the story and challenges on how we built and tested this stack.

Attendees will learn about the automation pipeline and challenges, as well as how to use CI/CD to scale-test their own infrastructure.
