"AiConix: AI in the media industry and how managed Kubernetes saves costs"

Aiconix helps media companies to leverage the possibilities of machine learning for different usecases. Whether it is speech to text transcriptions or face recognition everything runs in the cloud and has to be scaled, managed, secured and developed. How we have done it and how we optimized the costs are some topics in this talk.

"Building KubeOne: yet another Kubernetes cluster management tool"

At Loodse, we have recently announced a new open source Kubernetes cluster management tool called KubeOne. We had a vision of replacing the various imperative tools we used before, with a new single tool that would allow us to manage our clusters in a cloud native way. We wanted to be able to declare clusters in form of a manifest, just like our workload, and have a tool that would bring us a ready-to-use cluster.

But how to go about building such a tool? There are many existing tools as well as solutions and that was precisely out problem. It's hard to pick the right one that would satisfy all our requirements. That’s why we decided to build a new tool atop of solutions like kubeadm and Cluster-API. This talk is about building a new cluster management tool and the challenges this presented us with.


See you there.
