About this event

Kubernetes is a powerful open-source container orchestration / cluster management tool. It draws upon all the lessons learned from a near-decade of using containers at Google. Kubernetes handles a number of failure scenarios gracefully, from a crashed process to the failure of a cluster node.

Google’s Ray Tsang will show this through a real Raspberry Pi computing cluster that runs Kubernetes. This allows one to create a miniaturized cluster that closely resembles a real computer cluster – and we can play a real-life chaos monkey by pulling the plugs! In this session, we’ll also look beyond container orchestration with Kubernetes, but also demonstrate its failure handling by pulling the plugs on random nodes from a Raspberry Pi computing cluster.

Ray Tsang is a Developer Advocate for the Google Cloud Platform. He has extensive hands-on enterprise systems integration delivery and management experiences from his time at Accenture. Ray specialized in middleware, big data, and PaaS products during his time at Red Hat while contributing to open source projects, such as Infinispan. Aside from technology, Ray enjoys traveling and adventures.

We will also have a short presentation before Ray from Richard Wong, a systems architect with 20 years of tech experience designing and building server technology, VMware, and public and private clouds for companies like Cantor Fitz, AIG, and Dell. 

Richard will be discussing OpenStack and its scalability challenges, along with how Midokura provides open-source networking to allow OpenStack installations to scale beyond the 1000+ server-node mark. He will also show off his company's relatively new ability to use Kubernetes inside OpenStack to manage Docker container instances.
