Flipkart is India’s largest e-commerce company. At Flipkart we run some of the largest Kubernetes clusters in the region. Together these clusters cover 350k cores, 30k pods and 3k services. In this talk, we talk through our journey of migrating this huge setup from Qemu based Virtual Machine stack to Kubernetes.
