About this event

We're kicking off the new year with our first Kubernetes Berlin meetup! Come on down and connect with the community and watch some amazing presentations.

We still have a spot for another speaker if anyone is interested. Or, if you'd prefer, we also have two lightning talk spots. Feel free to ping me via meetup.com or DM on Twitter(@baldwinmathew)

7:30 - 8:00 pm Complementing Kubernetes infrastructures with Quobyte Storage

8:00 - 8:15 pm Lightning Talks - Kubernetes Operational View 

8:15 pm onwards Social/Wrap up


Architecture Patterns for Microservices in Kubernetes

Architecture patterns already have an important meaning in information technology. We already know patterns, which describe the properties and relations of systems components from building software, CPUs, computer systems, networks. The new paradigm of microservices requires and creates new patterns.

The talk describes the common patterns to build applications for the use in containers, of 'Container Design Patterns' which describe container interactions on a single host and the revival of 'Deployment Patterns' to be used in the distributed systems. Kubernetes is used to look into real world examples with configurations for common problems from simple sidecars to more complex pattern templating application suites from persistent systems to the loadbalancer.

Complementing Kubernetes infrastructures with Quobyte Storage

Stateless containers can only do so much, so most container infrastructures need to be complemented with non-local storage in order to be useful. We’ll look at topics like fault-tolerance and security that have to be considered around storage and containers, present Quobyte’s architecture and show what Quobyte has to offer for solving these problems.


Thomas Fricke is the CTO of Endocode and a cloud architect. He likes to work with scaling applications, specially with distributed databases. He has worked as a development engineer, system, software and cloud architect for many years. Current topics are large scale system automation for cloud native applications.

Felix Hupfeld is one of the founders of Quobyte and leads the engineering team that builds a data center file system for consolidating storage into one pervasive server-based storage infrastructure. Before, he spent several years in Google’s storage infrastructure group to accompany Google's tape backup system from pre-production to scale and helped removing the Beta from Gmail. He is also one of the architects of the XtreemFS distributed file system, and holds a Ph.D. in computer science.
