1 - Istio, we have a problem! Understanding and fixing bugs with a service-mesh

Istio, we have a problem! We've just deployed a shiny new set of micro-services and it behaves in a strange manner. Hard to say why with so many moving parts...

Let's leverage the newly installed service mesh to understand what we've deployed. Find the root problem. Fix it. And then do a proper, non trivial, blue-green deployment of the updated version.

That will involve the Service Graph, Prometheus monitoring, Grafana Dashboards, Traffic mirroring, all orchestrated in a simple manner by Istio.

About the speaker :

David Gageot is a Developer Advocate at Google Cloud. He's working on Containers Tools. Previously, he helped open the R&D office of Docker in Paris.

2 - Metalk8s an opinionated kubernetes distribution

Zenko is Scality's open source multi-cloud data controller; Zenko was originally deployed using Docker Swarm, but we hit the limits of this technology pretty fast (autoscaling limitations, adding containers replica required file edition and re-run), so Kubernetes became our new hope for a better storage world. Zenko is deployed more and more on premise close by the other product of scality: the RING.

That's how metalk8s was born. Metalk8s brings kubernetes into the datacenter of our customer. It leverages kubespray with a custom set of plug-ins and custom settings.
In this talk, we'll explore the main advantages of metalk8s over kubespray in our usecases, and will share the prospective roadmap with you. We will include a demo of a deployment.

About the speaker:

Julien Girardin is software engineer at Scality

We're looking forward to seeing you there :)
