How Kubernetes is deployed and managed has changed since the first release of the project. From configuration management systems and unit files to deploying Kubernetes using Kubernetes, a lot has changed. Self-hosted Kubernetes has many benefits as a deployment option, and this talk will highlight those benefits, as well as explain the history and nuances of making self-hosted Kubernetes possible.

In this talk I will describe what self-hosted Kubernetes means, why it exists, how it came into existence, and what you need to know if you're running a self-hosted cluster. Many tools now deploy self-hosted clusters including bootkube and kubeadm, so knowledge of how this works can be very important for anybody running a Kubernetes cluster.

What are the benefits of self-hosting? How does it work? What do I need to know if I'm administering a self-hosted cluster?

All those questions and more will be discussed in detail in this talk. In addition, I will discuss how various projects and products take advantage of the many benefits of self-hosting, such as Tectonic.
