Recorded: 6th July 2022

In our roundtable panel, we discussed how the future of k3s is being shaped by the industry and examples of how we utilize k3s applications.

Kunal Kushwaha and Kai Hoffman, Developer Advocates at Civo, addressed the concepts surrounding k3s as well as where the Kubernetes industry is heading. K3s is designed to be a single binary of less than 40MB that completely implements the Kubernetes API. This is recognized as a fully CNCF (Cloud Native Computing Foundation) certified Kubernetes offering whilst removing a lot of the extra drivers that aren't needed.

Dinesh Majrekar, CTO, and David Fogle, SRE at Civo looked at how Civo uses k3s as part of our setup. This covered how we leverage the efficiency of k3s by achieving two things that are important for developers: speed of deployment and economy of resources.
