"Network design for a bare metal cloud"

Running K8S on bare metal is quite popular and for cloud native applications it just makes sense to skip the layer of virtual machines. Self-Building a bare metal cloud for managed kubernetes introduces several challenges regarding networking.

In this talk, we will present our considerations about a network design for a bare metal cloud and dive into advanced network topics as BGP, Routing-on-the-host, AnyCast-addresses and the FRR-Routing-Suite which are the building blocks of our concept.

Aside from that, we'll have a live demo where we set up two servers with an AnyCast IP-address, a switch and demonstrate the failover behavior you get from that.

Joe Gardiner, Portworx

"Day 2 Data Ops for multi cluster Kubernetes"

Joe Gardiner - Technical Lead at Portworx will discuss the challenges of handling data in Kubernetes, and some of the pitfalls over data management in multi-tenant or multi-cluster deployments. He’ll then introduce STORK (STorage ORchestration for Kubernetes) - an open-source project from Portworx - and demonstrate cluster to cluster app and data migration.

See you there!
