DevOps Challenge – Kubernetes Deployment: Ketch vs YAML

DevOps Challenge – Kubernetes Deployment: Ketch vs YAML

Ketch (https://www.theketch.io) is an open-source application delivery framework for Kubernetes.

YAML is a human-readable data-serialization language. It is commonly used for configuration files and in applications where data is being stored or transmitted. Customized YAML files are used by many for the complicated task of deploying to Kubernetes.

The Race

In this special event, we put Ketch head-to-head against the traditional/manual way of deploying to Kubernetes: creating and executing YAML files. Who will have the fastest Kubernetes Deployment?
