FranceArchives is a website operated by the SIAF (Service interministériel des archives de France) and developed by Logilab. It enables researchers, as well as the general public, to explore the French national archives, irrespective of where the latter are stored. In May 2019, FranceArchives joined the open source software community by publishing the source code for related applications, which are themselves based on open source software components.
SIAF has just completed migration from traditional hosting to Kubernetes-based "cloud" type hosting. Our presentation aims to share our experience of this migration by talking about pleasant and unpleasant surprises and what we have learned one year after the start of this migration.
