Containers & Kubernetes Architecture
Tuesday, December 7, 2021
Accelerating product delivery, improving agility and reliability, adopting new services and capabilities - many companies and enterprises have been modernizing their applications to leverage the benefits mentioned here. But now, these organizations are facing new challenges: scale, performance, and cost.
In this session, we cover why enterprises should not compromise between improving performance and quality of service and saving on infrastructure compute costs, at any scale. We’ll review common cost and performance optimization strategies and explain why these are only the first steps of your optimization journey. Then, we deep dive into production profiling using gProfiler and how Granulate’s real-time continuous optimization solution enables companies to leverage performance gains to reduce costs.
It is very important nowadays to stay up to date with all of the cyber threats that are posing all over the world. It is widely known that there are not enough resources to be found to fill up every Security Operation Center (i.e. SOC). Therefore, many organizations struggle with coping with the massive amount of new type of attacks and generated alerts from their tooling.During this session, you will learn how to hunt (and automate your hunt) for active cyber threats in your environment and contain them using integrated connections to network, endpoint, and cloud products. This session is targeted at SOC management, cyber security engineers, threat hunters, and analysts. It will touch on threat detection, investigation and response. All the code will be made available after the session.
A detailed talk on how to approach app modernization covering the following --
how to move web apps running on plain virtual machines to a containerized setup and how to orchestrate those with a managed kubernetes service
how to scale these out?
Why IaC (Infrastructure as code) is important and a sample show casing resource spin off.
How to continously integrate and deliver these applications?
And finally touch base a little bit on security aspects
Cloud is complex. We are running ever more services in ever more places with ever more dependencies. As a result, we see deployments stir up failures and breaches go undetected. Service meshes help manage the explosion in east-west traffic but running a complex environment is not a matter of better routing or tracing requests. It must be controlled at runtime.This talk recounts the learnings from running a service mesh for reliability and security engineers at a large managed-services provider.
Microservices are complex, but don't need to be. Simplifying a microservice architecture is all about knowing who wrote them, who is using them and where they are running across all clusters. This is the purpose of a microservice catalog where microservice developers and application teams can share and collaborate around microservices, and provide support teams the information they need to respond to an incident quickly. In this presentation, Tracy Ragan, CEO of DeployHub and Ortelius Community Director will introduce the concepts of a microservice catalog along with the Continuous Delivery Foundation's Ortelius Open Source project focused on delivering a unified solution for all to use, automated via the CD Pipeline.
Kubernetes is hard. Running your data rich applications on Kubernetes platform does not make it any easier. One of the key challenges with cloud native applications is data management.
Join this session to learn:
1. Common challenges with provisioning and protecting data used in Kubernetes applications
2. How to define application 'state' in holistic terms
3. How to seamlessly provision and protect data to Kubernetes applications

As you adopt cloud native technologies and Kubernetes, you will face a myriad of technology, process, policy and people decisions. What tools and patterns are needed to be successful? How can you ensure Kubernetes is a success across your DevOps team and organization?Rachel Sweeney, Product Advocate SRE at Fairwinds, discusses why Kubernetes plays an important role in your DevOps experience and the 5 things to help your team succeed at Kubernetes. Learn a few critical steps to achieving your Kubernetes Maturity around technology, security, visibility and consistency.
In 2021, your entire tech stack is likely in the Cloud - so why aren’t your software packages? Whether you’re currently on-premise, have your own in-house solution or have a bit of a hybrid set up, join us in this session to explore:- Why enterprise organizations are making the move from on-premise solutions to completely Cloud-Native ones- What this means for improving, scaling, and securing their CI/CD pipelines- What the benefits of this are over cloud-hosted- How to easily set up a secure, cloud-native software pipeline in 60 seconds.
The IT world has evolved from the stateless 12-factor simple “Hello World!” app on Kubernetes to refactor more complex data-driven apps and incorporate newer paradigms such as microservices, service mesh, etc. However, Dev, DevOps and Ops of these distributed teams and systems are still an ongoing major challenge.
How are teams and technologies evolving to deal with this myriad of challenges and what steps are they taking to mitigate some of the issues? In this session we will start with identifying these challenges and how to solve them with a comprehensive practical example based around open sourced k8ssandra.io which relies on the cass-operator and is evolving to provide multi data center support.
After attending this session, attendees (Devs, Devops and Ops audience alike) will get a holistic perspective of the day-to-day challenges of the cloud-native approach -- gain a better understanding of data durability, routine backups and restore, observability, HA and DR. Dissecting the example with a step-by-step approach, will enable attendees to walk away with practical tips for a robust architecture and how to operationalize it.
