Event description

Description

Platform9, Mubadala, Evanssion and Portworx present a free technology event designed by container and cloud experts. The event brings leaders from the Kubernetes community to share best practices and emerging patterns for building, testing, securing, deploying, and operating containers. We provide a packed half-day of enriching sessions.

Agenda

  • 12:30pm - 1:00pm: Registration and walking lunch
  • 1:00pm - 1:45pm: Introduction to Kubernetes, Trends and Use Cases
    In this talk we will present to you Five Industry Trends in Digital Acceleration. We will discuss topics such as Cloud Native Application Development, Edge Computing, share a Reference Architecture for Digital Transformation in a Hybrid Cloud model and more.
  • 1:45pm - 2:30pm: Best practices to build a DevOps pipeline
  • 2:30pm - 3:15pm: Consuming Kubernetes with Platform9's Cloud Services vs operating Kubernetes
    Kubernetes has deservedly earned a reputation for being easy to deploy but difficult to master and operate (correctly configure, customize, secure, scale, implement HA, upgrade, backup/restore etcd state). Cloud-based offerings (e.g. GKE) aim to solve this problem by offering a fully hosted and managed solution. However, pure cloud solutions force an all-or-nothing decision and are inappropriate for many types of users for a variety of reasons (regulatory, fear of high costs, fear of vendor lock-in). The alternate solutions available to those users generally offer high flexibility and customizability, but often at the cost of high operational complexity. In this session Steven will showcase Platform9 Managed Kubernetes which is the industry’s only SaaS-based continuously managed Kubernetes service that guarantees 24x7x365 SLA and works across any infrastructure: on-prem data centers, public clouds, and at the Edge.
  • 3:15pm - 4:00pm: Completing your Kubernetes platform with Portworx data orchestration
    As Kubernetes adoption continues to grow, and ever more organisations use it to underpin their next generation application platforms, a new set of challenges are emerging. In particular, managing application data in a Kubernetes platform is difficult for many businesses, and when moving to multi-cluster or multi-cloud environments, this can be a blocker. In this session Joe Gardiner will discuss how Portworx solves for data management in Kubernetes, and will demonstrate how your applications and data can be portable across multiple platforms.
  • 4:00pm - 4:30pm: Interactive Q&A with DevOps thought leaders
