In-person event

About this event

Los Angeles Kubernauts and Cloud Native enthusiasts!

Our meetup will be September 27, 2018. In September we step into Harbor, currently incubating at the CNCF, and multicluster interservice routing at Fair.

We're always looking for speakers and hosts. If you're interested, ping me via twitter @baldwinmathew or email baldwin_at_stackpoint.io.


6:30 - 7:00 - Gather, Drink, Grab a Plate

We may start earlier depending on crowd size, so come early and claim your spot.

7:00 - 7:30 - A Tale of Two Clusters: Handling Interservice Routing Between Two Kubernetes Clusters - Marshall Brekka & Cat Cai, Fair

Fair's infrastructure setup (comprised of two segregated K8 clusters for various security purposes) brings about some unique challenges to tackle—namely, interservice routing and service discovery.

This talk covers the various solutions that Fair's platform team has used over the last two years, and how these experiences informed the creation of their K8 cross cluster controller, a tool that takes advantage of the AWS CNI plugin and the Kubernetes API to automate the process of exposing services across two different clusters.​

7:30 - 8:00 - How (and Why!) to host your own Container Image Registry, using Harbor - Steven Wong, VMWare

A Docker registry is a place to store and distribute Docker images. The pioneer in this space is the original Internet hosted Docker Hub. In recent years other options have evolved. Cloud operators like AWS, Azure, and GCE have their own offerings. Many commercial Kubernetes distributions include a registry.

When you deploy Kubernetes in a production setting, a lot can go wrong if you unleash unconstrained container images directly from the Internet.

The open source Harbor registry allows you to operate your own repository, with governance. It offers image security scanning, access control, audit logs, version management and more. If you deploy multiple instances for load balancing or availability, these can be configured to automatically replicate images.

Harbor is bundled with VMware's Kubernetes offerings, but can also be used independently. Learn what it can do and how to deploy it.

Even if you don't use Kubernetes yet, this session will show how to use Harbor in a standard Docker workflow.

8:00 - 9:30 - QA, Depart
