Kubernetes Cluster Federation: Higher Availability for your apps

Come to this talk to learn how Kubernetes can define clusters that go beyond a single infrastructure provider, spanning on multiple platforms channeling traffic to the right location transparently. We'll see the new range of Kubernetes entities that can now be deployed in Federated Clusters, and how these clusters will react to resource availability on the local clusters.  

From 0 to 100 with SAP 

This talk looks at SAP's journey with Kubernetes. How everything started, what was achieved, where things got tricky and how clusters were build up clusters. This talk will also give an outlook on what the future will bring for Kubernetes at SAP.
