Our brave old server Foo is starting to show its age and we'd like to replace it with some brand new shinny (and hopefully reliable) technologies.

Kubernetes looks interesting as a nice way to orchestrate docker containers and manage their lifecycles.

Some PaaS layer running on top of Kubernetes such as OpenShift Origin is being tested

We'd love to have a CI/CD (Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery) pipeline working so that updating the code of any of our service should be as simple as git push.
