Companies like Alibaba, Uber, and Pinterest are managing a huge fleet of machines with demanding and complicated workload. To evolve our infrastructure and adopt Kubernetes, we faced many challenges around scalability, reliability, flexibility and operationality. And today, after overcame those difficulties, we are running some of the largest Kubernetes clusters in the world.
