Due to COVID-19, we are continuing to run these meetups as virtual events.
Join us online, learn about the Kubernetes and cloud native from three great speakers, and meet your fellow techies.
See you there!
Overcoming scalability issues in your Prometheus ecosystem (Juergen Etzlstorfer, Dynatrace)
Prometheus is considered a foundational building block when running applications on Kubernetes and has become the de-facto open-source standard for visibility and monitoring in Kubernetes environments.
In this talk we are highlighting the most common challenges we have seen and provide guidance on how to overcome them. Finally, we are discussing a solution to get you there more quickly to build automated, future-proof observability with Prometheus showing Keptn as one possible implementation.
Jürgen (@jetzlstorfer on Twitter) is a Technology Strategist and DevOps activist of the Keptn open-source project. He was one of the core-contributors in its early days and is now responsible for the strategy and integration between open source tools and the Keptn framework as well as the Keptn open-source community. He loves to share his experience at conferences & meetups on Kubernetes based technologies and automation.
Serverless vs Kubernetes - The Great Cloud Native Debate (Josh Armitage, Contino)
The future of Cloud Native application development, is it containers or serverless? Via the story of a team embarking on greenfield development inside an existing company, we'll explore through the six lenses of cost, performance, security, operations, learning curve and developer experience to discover what the right fit is. Based on experience over years, hopefully even the most Cloud Naive will understand the trade-offs and inflexion points to be able to make an informed decision.
Josh, @josharmi, is a technical principal at Contino, having recently returned to the UK after 13 years in Australia. He’s worked on everything from mainframes to machine learning, in everything from enterprises to startups. Now he focuses on supporting enterprises in their cloud journeys and how to achieve the prophecised Cloud Native Nirvana.
Architecting petabyte-scale analytics by scaling out Postgres on Azure with Citus (Alicja Kucharczyk, Microsoft)
A story about technology that is powering a 1.5 petabyte internal analytics application at Microsoft with 2816 cores and 18.7 TB of memory in the Citus cluster. The internal RQV analytics dashboard at Microsoft helps the Windows team to assess the quality of upcoming Windows releases. The RQV analytics dashboard relies on Postgres—along with the Citus extension to Postgres to scale out horizontally—and is deployed on Microsoft Azure.
Alicja is EMEA Global Black Belt OSS Data tech Specialist at Microsoft, a PostgreSQL expert, and both an experienced developer as well as administrator and PostgreSQL coach with strong practical knowledge of Linux and their mutual interactions. Particularly interested in performance optimization at different levels. She consulted for a lot of companies mainly in Poland, providing them with working solutions and supporting them in architecting, deploying and maintaining PostgreSQL. Founder and organizer of Warsaw PostgreSQL Users Group, for Polish PostgreSQL users, speaker at local users groups and conferences and advocate for PostgreSQL and open source.
