6:25 - 7:20 - 1st talk: Containerized Storage for Containers -

Murat Karslioglu

Why, how, huh? What is wrong w/ stateful workloads on containers today? What is happening at the Linux kernel to improve the security of containers as a platform FOR storage? Could containers and Kubernetes become the foundations of a new approach to storage? How to deal with storage in multi-cloud environment. Quick view and demo into the OpenEBS project.


Murat Karslioglu is a serial entrepreneur, technologist, and startup geek with over 15 years of experience in storage, distributed systems, and enterprise software development. He is currently the VP of Solutions and Technology at CloudByte / OpenEBS, a startup developing open-source containerized storage for containers. Prior to joining CloudByte, Murat has worked at Hewlett Packard Enterprise / 3PAR Storage in various advanced development projects including containerization of the storage management stack for HPE’s Hyper-converged solution.


7:30 - 8:00- 2nd talk: High Performance Networking in EC2 - Chris Marino

One of the most popular platforms for running Kubernetes is Amazon Web Services’ Elastic Compute Cloud (AWS EC2). EC2’s VPC networking has route table restrictions that limit cluster size and multi-zone and HA deployments introduce further network complexity. This talk will review EC2’s VCP networking and how its limitations impact cluster size, availability and security.

Fortunately, each of these limitations can be addressed by using one of several possible Kubernetes CNI network providers. Chris will review how CNI provider overcome these problems and the operational tradeoffs for each.
