We are planning to move "all DPIM" AWS environments into Kubernetes. Kubernetes is hosted in the same AWS account as the applications to migrate. A long-term goal is to enable multi-cloud support, with AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure as the referenced targets.

Project technologies and tools

  • Stacks are mostly:
    • Drupal 7 (Apache, PHP, MySQL, AWS Linux, Memcache, nginx, Varnish);
    • Java (mostly just java directly called by Jenkins jobs or AWS CodeDeploy jobs);
    • MongoDB (~10 clusters supporting multiple applications, NBCU-cloud owns infrastructure but DBOps owns mongo itself).


  • Assess current environments;
  • Assess current K8 setup, working with the current architect to understand and ensure K8 design can support proposed environments;
  • Map a migration path for applications to K8, including any K8 adjustments for feature gaps (there are currently only a small subset of patterns/practices supported in the NBC K8 environment) and architectural redesigns of the application to work within K8;
  • Work with development teams on application adjustments;
  • Create PoCs of applications in K8;
  • Create K8 environments.


  • Strong AWS engineering, ideally with good architecture skills;
  • Knowledge of Kubernetes, the more senior, the better, specifically CoreOS;
  • Applications:
    • Drupal 7;
    • Apache, Nginx, specifically for PHP (mostly PHP-FPM) 5.6 and 7.0 hosting;
    • Memcache;

    • VPC, VPC Peering, security groups;
    • RDS (infrastructure, not DBA skills), specifically MySQL;
