Spotify is well known worldwide for its music service. Not so well known, is its path to Kubernetes Oz has been a road with many twists and turns.

What also may be a surprise to many is that Spotify is a veteran user of Kubernetes and how it owes much of its product-delivery capabilities to its agile DevOps. Indeed, Spotify continues to increasingly rely on a container and microservices infrastructure and cloud native deployments to offer a number of advantages. This allows its DevOps teams to continually improve the overall streaming experience for millions of subscribers.

In this edition of The New Stack Analysts podcast, as part of The New Stack’s recent coverage of end use Kubernetes, Jim Haughwout, head of infrastructure and operations, shares Spotify’s cloud native adoption war stories and discusses its past and present Kubernetes challenges. Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack; Cheryl Hung, vice president of ecosystem at Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) and Ken Owens, vice president, cloud native engineering, Mastercard hosted the podcast.
