This is part two of our series on how we designed and implemented a scalable, highly-available and fault-tolerant microservice-based Image Editor. This part depicts how we went from a basic Docker Compose setup to running our application on our own »bare-metal« Kubernetes cluster.
This is part one of our series on how we designed and implemented a scalable, highly-available and fault-tolerant microservice-based Image Editor. The series covers the various design choices we made and the difficulties we faced during design and development of our web application. It shows how we set up the scaling infrastructure with Kubernetes and what we learned about designing a distributed system and developing a production-grade Kubernetes cluster running on multiple nodes.
