6:15 - 6:25 - Introduction by Host

6:30 - 7:15 - Running Kubernetes on Mesosphere DC/OS

Speaker: Tobi Knaup, CTO, Mesosphere

The application landscape inside our data center is changing: Along with the trend of moving toward microservices and containers, there are a number of new distributed data processing frameworks such as Kafka or Flink being released on a weekly basis. These changes have implications for the ways we think about infrastructure. With the growing need for computing power and the rise of distributed applications comes the need for a reliable and simple-use cluster manager and programming abstraction.

In this presentation, Tobi Knaup will explain how to use DC/OS to manage microservices and fast data systems on a single platform. He’ll look at how container orchestration, including resource management and service management, can be streamlined to process fast data in a matter of seconds, allowing for predictive user interfaces, product recommendations, and billing charge back, among other modern app components. Join us to meet with Tobi and talk to him about solutions for your enterprise apps.

7:15 - 7:45 - Managing Microservices with Kubernetes, Istio and Envoy

Speaker: Fawad Khaliq, Engineer, VMware Inc

In the modern software architectures, microservices play a key role due their flexible, modular nature. With the adoption of microservices, a new set of problems have emerged mainly due to the number of services in a large system. Some of these problems include security, monitoring, load balancing and rate limiting for each service. While most of these problems have been addressed for monolithic applications, the solutions to these problems in the microservices enviroments are still relatively new.

In this talk, Fawad Khaliq will walk through the overview of service mesh ecosystem, where Kubernetes fits in the service mesh frameworks, how Istio along with Envoy leverages Kubernetes to address some of the challenges around security, load balancing and monitoring.
