TALK #1: "Istio In Production"
Speaker: Hans Duedal, Unity
War-stories from an eventually successful Istio production rollout, for machine learning workloads in the cloud.
We'll start by examining managed Istio, in particular GKEs "built-in" Istio, then deep dive on the traditional helm-deployed Istio. We'll see how added istio features like Kiali provides visibility into the smart plumbing of your services, and how we can use it, and other tools, to debug when things doesn't work (like you expected). We'll conclude with reflecting on how to best add a service mesh to your stack.

TALK #2: "Storage Operator in Kubernetes - Getting your Feet Wet"
Speaker; Henrik Høegh, Praqma
With Kubernetes becoming the standard way of orchestrating containers, we still need to solve the problem of on-prem storage. Storage and state is one of the most challenging tasks to solve when operating in an on-prem Cloud Native environment. Traditionally companies has been using external storage line NFS, but there are certain problems with this approach. In this talk Henrik will talk about the problems of external storage, how to move storage inside the cluster and automate it with the Rook operator, followed by a live demo. By the end of the talk, the listener will be able to get started with Cloud Native storage in Kubernetes and how to take advantage and flexibility Rook provides.
