About this event

We have 2 great presentations in October!

1) Kubernetes Ingress to Service Mesh - Microservices Traffic Patterns
"Kubernetes users need to allow traffic to flow into and within the cluster. Treating the application traffic separately from the business logic allows presents new possibilities in how service to service traffic is served, controlled and observed — and provides a transition to intra cluster networking like Service Mesh. With microservices, there is a concept of both North / South traffic (incoming requests from end users to the cluster) and East / West (intra cluster) communication between the services. In this talk we will explain how Envoy Proxy works in Kubernetes as a proxy for both of these traffic directions and how it can be leveraged to do things like traffic shaping, security, and integrate the north/south to east/west behavior. "

Scott Cranton @scottcranton is the Director of Customer Success at Solo.io focusing on helping the community of open source users and customers quickly adopt and smoothly operate API Gateways and Service Mesh related technologies. Prior to Solo.io, Scott held a variety of customer engineering and management roles at RedHat, FuseSource, Oracle and BEA.

2) Introducing KUDO, Kubernetes Operators the easy way
"Kubernetes Operators are the next phase of the journey towards automating complex applications in containers. The KUDO project introduces an easy way to build Kubernetes operators using declarative YAML. Many Operators that exist today handle initial deployment, but they don’t provide automation for tasks like binary upgrades, configuration updates, and failure recovery. Implementing a production-grade controller for a complex workload typically requires thousands of lines of code and many months of development. As a result, the quality of operators that are available today varies. The KUDO project provides a universal operator to enable automated creation of operators for Kubernetes, in most cases just using YAML. This talk will introduce the KUDO project, and demo the creation of a Kubernetes operator using KUDO."

Chris Mays is a Senior Sales Engineer for D2iQ, where he helps companies navigate their digital transformations, including container orchestration and data services.
