About this event

Hello SF Kubernauts!

We're super excited to host the DevOps Efficiency monthly meetup together with Google, Octarine, and Spotinst!

So, what's waiting for us in this incredible evening?

6:00 - 6:30 - Social & Refreshments
6:30 - 7:00 - Kubernetes @ Google & Why GKE
7:00 - 7:15 - Kubernetes Cluster Autoscaling
7:15 - 7:50 - Application Security for Kubernetes - Prioritize security
7:50-8:05 - Spotinst Ocean Live Demo by Octarine

6:30 - 7:00 Kubernetes @ Google & Why GKE

GKE is a fully managed environment for deploying containerized applications which enables rapid application development and iteration by making it easy to deploy, update, and manage your applications and services. In this session, we will cover an overview of the
key offerings of GKE, GKE networking, and Istio and finally cover the best practices around securing your Kubernetes clusters running on GCP

Speaker: Shreya Pandita, Cloud Customer Engineer @ Google Cloud

7:00 - 7:15 Kubernetes Cluster Autoscaling

Managing the underlying infrastructure that powers your Kubernetes cluster involves a massive set of design decisions. The default vertical and horizontal pod auto-scalers struggle to best match pods with the compute required for scheduling pods even when the overall cluster may appear underutilized. This talk will dive into Pod-driven autoscaling and showcase how to leverage multiple instance families in a way that feels like a single pool of compute. The session will also run through a number of other architectural decisions that go into maximizing the availability and minimizing the cost of your Kubernetes environments.

Speaker: Gideon Wulfsohn, Solutions Architect @ Spotinst

7:15 - 7:50 Application Security for Kubernetes - Prioritize security without slowing down

The explosion of containerized applications orchestrated with Kubernetes has brought both new agile development processes and new unprecedented risks to businesses of all sizes.
Traditionally, organizations have relied upon gates throughout the deployment process to prevent bad code from going to production. However, there has to be a paradigm shift to this solution as the fast, iterative DevOps deployment process requires a new approach to security. In this talk, we will review the evolution of containers application and Kubernetes, the effect it has on the development process and how to think about security in such a dynamic ecosystem.
The session will also include a live demo of Octarine system.

About Octarine: Octarine provides Kubernetes Application Security with a unique service mesh approach. Organizations utilizing Octarine are equipped with a security suite that includes Kubernetes security discovery, automatic scanning to secure Kubernetes configurations, application segmentation, ingress and egress control, and network threat detection.

Speakers: Haim Helman, Co-Founder & CTO @ Octarine
Ram Akuka, Head of Field Engineering @ Octarine

See you there!
