Kubernetes as a Container Platform is becoming a de facto for every enterprise. In my interactions with enterprises adopting container platform, I come across common questions: - How does application security work on this platform? What all do I need to secure? - How do I implement security in pipelines? - What about vulnerabilities discovered at a later point in time? - What are newer technologies like Istio Service Mesh bring to table?In this session, I will be addressing these commonly asked questions that every enterprise trying to adopt an Enterprise Kubernetes Platform needs to know so that they can make informed decisions.

Hybrid Container Serverless Mobile Backend

Register for this session Here

So you've been hearing a lot of buzz about Serverless tech in conjunction with Containers and Mobile, but what exactly is the serverless or cloud functions in reference to containers? Come find out at this session. Serverless has become the new style of coding, and it might be perfect to offload your mobile apps, and container based systems without incurring unnecessary costs.

Get an intro into serverless/function-as-a-service/cloud native technologies in the Mobile-Backend-as-a-Service (MBaaS) context and learn why startups and enterprises are so excited about using it. We will be demoing Serverless and containers in Swift and iOS, and in Java for Android, and covering the following:

  • Who are the players in the serverless ecosystem
  • What are some use cases for serverless and container based solutions - with MBaaS as one of them
  • Best practices for the serverless with the container system architecture for MBaaS
  • If going serverless is really faster, better, cheaper for developers and organizations
  • Live coding examples using Swift and Java

Winning with Cloud Machine Learning (ML)

Register for this session Here

The vast majority of organizations today are in the earliest stages of AI initiatives and this shift will be dramatic as more enterprises move forward in the AI journey. Although companies are at different stages of this journey, most agree that finding or developing analytic talent is a key concern and bottleneck for doing more. What if your business could take advantage of the most advanced ML/AI models without the huge upfront time and investment inherent in building an internal ML/AI data scientist team?

In this presentation, I will introduce the pros and cons of three pathways: 1. Utilize prepackage ML APIs, 2. Customizable AutoML, 3. Training your your ML models specifically tailored to your business needs. To win with Cloud ML, you will need to know how to choose a right approach in a quicker time frame and without significant investment.

TAKEAWAYS

  • Understand what is Machine Learning
  • Identify what are the challenges on current ML process.
  • Know the pros and cons of three pathways for implementing ML: ML infrastructure Prepackge ML API AutoML
  • Learn from customers ML use cases.
  • Understand how are you going to adopt ML today by choosing the right tool.

Serverless on Cloud From Code to Insight

Register for this session Here

When a company wants to develop an application, it must worry about many aspects: selecting the infrastructure, building the technical stack, defining the storage strategy, configuring networks, setting up monitoring and logging, and on top of that, the company needs to worry about high availability, flexibility, scalability, data processing, machine learning, etc. Going to the cloud infrastructure can help you solving these problems to a level, but what if we have a better way to do things.

As a pioneer in serverless notion, Google Cloud offers a complete platform for each of those necessities letting users to just write code, send messages, assign jobs, build models, and gain insights without deploying a single machine. So cloud compute on its own is not enough, we need to think about all of the pieces we need to move architecture from the bottom, up towards the top of the stack. With the serverless tools, companies can focus on the most productive task: application development.

TAKEAWAYS

  • Identify what are the challenges on current cloud architecture.
  • Learn from our customers about why they think serverless is important.
  • Know what are the key benefits for using serverless tools.
  • Introduce Google serverless platform: Compute (App Engine, Cloud Functions, Kubernetes Engine), Data (Dataflow, BigQuery), and ML (Cloud AI, AutoML).5. Understand how are you going to adopt serverless today by choosing the right tool based on use cases.

OpenStack and Kubernetes Get the Heat Treatment

Register for this session Here

Take advantage of autoscaling, and high availability for Kubernetes with no worry about infrastructure. Be the Rockstar and avoid all the hurdles of deploying Kubernetes. So Why not take Heat and automate the setup of your Kubernetes cluster? Why not give project owners a Heat Stack to deploy Kubernetes whenever they want to?

Hoping to share how anyone can use Heat to deploy Kubernetes on OpenStack and customize to their liking. 

This is a tried and true method that I've used on my OpenStack clusters and I will share the benefits, bumps along the way and the lessons learned.

These Heat templates will deploy a cluster of Nova instances running Kubernetes from the Kubic project. 

The cluster uses Flannel to provide an overlay network connecting pods deployed on different nodes. You can determine the initial size of the cluster via a configuration parameter when you deploy it, and the cluster will scale dynamically (up to a specified maximum size) due to CPU load on the Kubernetes nodes.

Know More About Your Ceph Cluster with ELK Stack

Register for this session Here

Ceph generates quite a few logs which you can use to transform into alerts and do proper analysis of the data. If you tune things right you just might catch a problem before it occurs. Maybe you did have a problem already and you want to analyze it so that it doesn't happen again. We will explore how to enable GELF logging in Ceph and utilizing that with the ELK Stack. Another use we can tie into the ELK stack is the Object storage (RGW). With the use of elasic search we can now search our metadata and sort through important information being stored as objects. This metadata can also be customized with your own fields in RGW. I'll demonstrate live some analysis of a running Ceph cluster with both the logging and RGW metadata search abilities.

Get Behind Your OpenStack and Transform Your Adoption

Register for this session Here

When it comes to OpenStack adoption you might need to think of some more ways in which you can successfully adopt it in your organization. As I have been operating OpenStack for several years there have been some key objectives which will help increase your adoption. 

I'll go over a few of these objectives from workload migration including P2V,V2V,C2C,H2H to Workload transformation. I will talk about the process, requirements, tools, and leave you with all you need to press forward with greater OpenStack adoption.

I will provide a demonstration of some of the tools in action so you can see how you can successfully inspect a workload, prepare it, and build it for running on OpenStack all in an automated fashion with little to few steps required. The goal is to leave you with the confidence that this has been done before and you can accomplish it too.
