Managing thousands containers can be challenging, but if you want to know how Kubernetes will behave at scale we might be able to provide an answer. At KubeCon in Seattle, we shared the data we collected in our scale lab, which consists of 500 physical nodes. Using virtual machines, we can simulate up to 5000 Kubernetes minions running actual workloads, and our tests are designed to reveal how Kubernetes behaves while managing a complex application (in this case, OpenStack services) at large scale.
