Ask Me Anything on Cloud Native Storage (Alex Chircop, StorageOS & Luis Pabón, Portworx)

Dynamically provisioning storage is still a challenge in cloud native architectures. In this panel discussion you can ask any questions to two of the leading container storage providers, StorageOS and Portworx.
* What is Rook, the newest CNCF project?
* What do I need to know about the Container Storage Interface?
* What's coming next from the Kubernetes Storage SIG and CNCF WG?
According to Alexis Richardson, 2018 is the year of cloud native storage, so bring your questions on everything cloud native storage.

Alex Chircop, StorageOS co-founder and CTO was previously Global Head of Storage Platform Engineering at Goldman Sachs and Head of Infrastructure Platform Engineering at Nomura International.

Luis Pabón is a MTS engineer at Portworx working on Kubernetes and CSI storage. Prior to joining Portworx in November of 2017, he worked at CoreOS and at Red Hat Storage were he created the project Heketi for GlusterFS and was the technical lead of Red Hat Container Native Storage.

Zenko, a MultiCloud Data Controller (Laure Vergeron, Scality)

A few years ago, moving anything infrastructure related to "the" cloud was assumed to make life easier for everyone from the systems administrator to the application developer. A number of complexities and hidden costs came to light recently, and one of the main causes for this is that there is no single "the" cloud. There are multiple clouds.
Scality has been a Gartner Leader for software defined storage for the past few year, and saw that problem coming 2 years ago. Its core product, the RING, provides a software solution to storing petabytes of data on private clouds across multiple sites.
Recently, Scality developed an open source solution that provides an aggregated view of all data stored across clouds, and lets the user use one single API (the S3 API) to access multiple cloud data backends (S3, Azure, Google Cloud, Backblaze, among others). It allows for Cross Clouds Replication, metadata search across clouds, and comes with a handy management UI: Zenko Orbit.
This presentation will cover the current situation and challenges described above, then describe Zenko Open Source, and conclude with a demo (bring your laptop!) and Q&A.

After completing a dual undergrad in medical sciences and computer sciences, Laure Vergeron joined Scality as a Software Engineer. In 2016, when Scality launched CloudServer, its open source S3 API Server, Laure became its Technology Evangelist, and she's been building a MultiCloud open source community since.

Introduction to Kubernetes Networking (Bryan Boreham, Weaveworks)

Kubernetes has two simple but powerful network concepts: every Pod is connected to the same network, and Services let you talk to a Pod by name. Bryan will take you through how these concepts are implemented - Pod Networks via the Container Network Interface (CNI), Service Discovery via kube-dns and Service virtual IPs, then on to how Services are exposed to the rest of the world.

Bryan is Director of Engineering at Weaveworks, delivering deployment, observability and monitoring for containers and microservices. As a maintainer of CNI, the Container Network Interface, and Weave Net, Bryan can often be found helping Kubernetes users with their network questions.
