About this event

Hello South Bay Kubernetes Enthusiasts!

I hope this month has been treating you splendidly! We have planned another great meetup for July, with one speaker from Rancher Labs, and another from Branch Metrics.

Talk 1

Our first talk is by Alena Prokarchyk (, Principal Software Engineer at RancherLabs, Cupertino, CA. Golang developer with a focus on building infrastructure tools around Kubernetes.

Title: "Load Balancing with Kubernetes: concepts, use cases and implementation details"

Abstract: When it comes to containerizing user applications and deploying them on Kubernetes, it really comes down to 2 major parts - deploying the application and exposing it for the access internally or externally. And as your application gets bigger, providing it with Load Balanced access becomes essential. This talk will focus on various use cases requiring Load Balancers, and fun and easy ways to achieve internal and external load balancing with Kubernetes. We are going to explain the difference between Load Balancer Service and Ingress, give an overview of various deployment models for ingress controllers and best practices for Load Balancer integration with external DNS

Talk 2

Our second talk is by Hubert Chen (, Infrastructure Manager at Branch. Hubert is a long time Unix/Linux System Admin, and a big Kubernetes fan.

Title: "Stateful Kubernetes applications in AWS"

Abstract: Microservices have been known to have clear advantages when it comes to running stateless applications. However, Stateful applications have always needed special consideration when running them as microservices. This talk will cover design tradeoffs of building stateful applications on Kubernetes in AWS.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
