Project K8PetStore: Deploying a data driven app on Kubernetes with autoscaling

Project logistics

Preferred past experience

Some experience in one or more of the following is preferred in possible team members:

How fast can a kubernetes application on on GCE or OpenStack (preferred) handle 1000, 10,000, 100,000 transactions per second through a message queue?

Right now, K8PetStore is a Golang Web app which sends transactions sent to a REST endpoint directly to Redis.  We want to anonymize the data sink - i.e. have the app send transactions directly to a message queue.  Then we want to plug different databases into the message queue on the back end.
