About this event

Network micro-segmentation, Kubernetes, Spring Cloud, Nirmata and more! 

Join us @ VMware for a deep dive on how to secure microservices networking, best practices for running Kubernetes on AWS, and building and operating microservices with Spring Cloud (Netflix OSS) components.


6:30 - 7:00: Refreshments and Snacks, Networking
7:00 - 7:30: Kubernetes on AWS
7:30 - 8:00:  Microservices with Spring Cloud and Nirmata
8:00 - 8:30: Micro-segmenting Containers: The Why and The How

Kubernetes on AWS
Shri Javadekar, MTS at Applatix

AWS provides a feature-rich and battle-hardened infrastructure to run Kubernetes. However, getting the architecture right for running a production grade, reliable and scalable Kubernetes cluster is not straightforward. In this talk, we’ll present our experiences in running Kubernetes on AWS to achieve that. We’ll talk about the problems and limitations we ran into so that you may think about those upfront.

Deploying Microservices With Spring Cloud Netflix On Nirmata
Deen Aariff, Santa Clara University

I will be sharing my experience learning Microservices and deploying the Spring Pet Clinic Application, which uses Spring Cloud Netflix OSS components, on Nirmata. In addition, I will be highlighting some key features of Spring Cloud and Nirmata that both helped me as a student better understand microservices and made deployment of the application a smooth and accessible task. 

Micro-segmenting Containers: The Why and The How
Ali Khayam, Director, Photon Networking at VMware

Containers are the new vehicle for delivering applications in private and public clouds. Many container PaaS and orchestration projects have emerged over the past few years; each aiming to simplify the lifecycle of application development and maintenance. However, many open questions around security of containerized workloads remain unanswered. Similar security questions existed for VMs in the past, until microsegmentation allowed security to migrate from the perimeter to the VM.

In this talk, we will first cover the key security requirements that an enterprise-grade container IaaS solution is expected to meet. Next, we will discuss which aspects of VM microsegmentation are readily applicable to containers, and which ones are not. Finally, we will understand how VMware NSX is operating as a base networking and security platform that provides container micro-segmentation for both vSphere and non-vSphere environments.
