Maintenance events occur and require taking down nodes for various reasons. Eric and Maisem talk about the best practices and lessons learned trying to minimize downtime during routine maintenance events.

They show how to use StatefulSets and PodDisruptionBudgets to achieve highly available services. They go on to explain what the best practices for performing node maintenance are using scenarios like failed pod evictions, non-responsive kubelets and network bisections.
