Scheduling, with David Oppenheimer ()

David’s work with Borg, Omega and now Kubernetes over the past 13 years, puts him, in the words of Tim Hockin, “among the world’s experts in scheduling systems”. On this week’s episode of the Kubernetes Podcast from Google, David talks about his experience with scheduling systems, how learnings from Omega became Kubernetes features, and what he thinks the biggest challenges facing the cluster management space are today.
