    how would I start setting up Kubernaut for my GCP account? It looks like i'd have to set up kubernaut.io internally as well

    @julianvmodesto We run Kubernaut as a hosted service right now. Can you tell us a little bit more about your use case, needs and why you want to run it on GCP?

    @julianvmodesto
    Oh yes I just realized this is a hosted service -- it looks like in AWS. I just happened to stumble upon your Kubernaut blogpost and I was interested in tooling around creating and deleting ephemeral GKE clusters and i misunderstood what Kubernaut was initially

    but basically this quote from your blogpost is what resonated with my use case:

    We tried using Google Container Engine. Our developers use Google as their primary development environment, so we figured it would be a natural fit. However, we found that automatically destroying clusters when you had completed a job was not what GKE was designed to do and getting engineers to remember to do it was often a challenge not to mention sometimes automated test code fails and the cleanup does not happen.

    Ah, yes. We use it to run regression tests for our software.
    What are you trying to do with ephemeral Kubernetes clusters?
    Julian V. Modesto
    @julianvmodesto
    For us, provisioning ephemeral Kubernetes clusters would be useful as an alternative to local dev environments for our developers, but also for staging or QA environments or testing too.

    @julianvmodesto ah, that makes sense. we are exploring the idea of a hosted service that gives you on-demand Kubernetes dev environments that integrates Telepresence & some of our other tech (not sure if you've seen our other projects?). is that something you might be interested in?
    the idea is that a developer could click a button and spin up a complete copy of your app in an ephemeral cluster, from source
    and then use Telepresence to code on one of the services locally, in their IDE or whatever
    we also have the ability if you run Ambassador (our API Gateway) to do stuff like shadow production traffic into your dev cluster for testing purposes, etc.
