Bare metal Kubernetes as a Service: Canonical MAAS and SpectroCloud Webinar
by Anton Smith on 1 February 2022
Developers want Kubernetes infrastructure that is fast, consistent, and without limits! Platform engineering, IT, and DevOps teams are adopting Kubernetes as a Service (KaaS) now more than ever before to streamline efficiency for dev teams and operations. But what happens when the requirement involves deploying clusters directly on top of bare metal servers and making sure the experience for multiple global dev teams is the same… everywhere?
In this webinar, Joe Searcy (Staff Engineer, T-Mobile), Anton Smith (Product Manager, Canonical), and Saad Malik (CTO and Co-founder, Spectro Cloud) talk about the challenge of building a repeatable process to deploy and offer K8s to developers without compromising on performance, cost and governance or disrupting the existing automaton and processes in place. This webinar will be of primary interest to IT Ops, DevOps, DevOps engineers, and Site Reliability Engineers.
What you will learn
- The business requirement: driving organizational change to support new workloads using containers for multiple application development teams
- Why bare metal Kubernetes makes sense: benefits and adoption journey
- Bare metal challenges: why managing the Operating System is the critical layer and what are the implications
- The solution: how to treat bare metal Kubernetes clusters like any other cluster across Day 0 – Day 2 operations, and manage everything with one automation strategy
- The road ahead: what’s next for modern Kubernetes management

Bare metal Kubernetes is a powerful set of technologies that builds on the best ideas behind the public and private cloud, yet abstracts away some toilsome aspects related to virtualisation management and networking. For operators and users, it provides significant benefits, making it easier and faster to ship and maintain complex, distri […]
2022 is right around the corner, and it’s not just time to prepare for Christmas, play video games, buy presents, or share anti-Christmas memes. It’s time to start making some predictions for bare metal Kubernetes! Take a minute and let’s think about it. Developers have advent of code so they’re busy right now. Sysadmins and […]
Back a few months ago, we did a feature poll on our MAAS forum, and the most-requested new feature turned out to be “Recommission/rescan a machine after it has been deployed“. With the release of MAAS 3.1, we’ve added that feature, making MAAS an even better choice for linux deployment tools. Here’s a sample of […]
