· Using Istio to for TLS termination and load-balancing as-a-service
(Stephen Howell, Consulting Corporate Systems Engineer, Dell EMC)
Micro-services are popular, as is migrating physical-to-VM-to-Container. With all these service it can be challenging to manage load-balancing and TLS certificates. We will show how Istio can abstract that problem and help you standardise your security posture across all your services. We will also demonstrate how to add the open-source MetalLB to Istio to allow self-hosted systems to benefit from sophisticated IP load balancing.

· Kubernetes Observability by Example (Tom Riley, BookingGo)
Prometheus is quickly becoming the de factor open-source monitoring and alerting tool. Through a series of live demos I will explain how to deploy Prometheus into Kubernetes and make use of it for monitoring Kubernetes. I will also demonstrate how to successfully run Prometheus in HA with the Thanos project and how to store years worth of metrics without requiring heaps of CPU, memory and storage for Prometheus.
