Présentations/Talk Schedule:

Talk #1: CNCF Update
By Archy, CNCF Ambassador

Talk #2: Using K8s to solve K8s persistent workloads problems, DevOps style!
Presented by Philippe Theriault, CRO & OpenEBS Community at MayaData, and Murat Karslioglu, VP Products at MayaData.

"Kubernetes was designed for ephemeral workloads that would allow for cloud-native apps to scale up and down. As K8s is becoming the center of many IT operations, people wanted to use the abstraction of K8s and apply them to persistent workloads as well. That goes against, certain fundamental aspects of k8s, Pets vs. Cattle. How do you keep K8s' agility while dealing with the inertia of storage, monolithic services that provide storage and are an unnatural fit (pet)? CAS (Container Attached Storage) allows you to build a real cloud-native persistent storage layer in Kubernetes for Kubernetes. During this meet-up, we will go over the journey of the openEBS project, discuss how it uses micro-services to provide storage to microservices where the developer is in full control and is our primary persona. We will discuss basic k8s concepts like Persistent Volumes, Persistent Volume Claims, Storage Classes and the operator patterns as well as advances ones like cross-cloud and cross-AZ data and application mobility and DR."

Talk #3: To Russia With Love: Kubernetes in Exotic Locations
Presented by Michael Wojcikiewicz, Container Solutions Architect at CloudOps. Human, nerd, likes techno.

You’ve migrated your workloads to Kubernetes in the cloud, but now your client requires their application run somewhere your cloud provider isn’t – what to do? This talk will walk through a real use case of augmenting a cloud managed Kubernetes deployed application with an on prem solution hosted in Russia, detailing all the problems and solutions around providing object storage, CDN, container registry, persistent storage and logging on the Rancher Kubernetes Engine using CNCF projects like Rook and Fluentd.
