K8s: Rampant Pragmatism in the Cloud at Starling Bank

Starling Bank’s back end is made up of 40 - 50 individual services. These were all being deployed to the cloud as a monolith, an approach that was slowing us down. We migrated our delivery pipelines to deliver these services in six separate groups, and are now starting to use Kube. But why did we start by deploying our services as a monolith? Why are we now deploying our services in six groups as opposed to all individually? Why are we only starting to use Kube now? This talk will explore Starling’s technical philosophy of rampant pragmatism and how we applied it to our delivery pipeline.
