About this event

Kubernauts! We are excited to announce the next San Francisco Kubernetes meetup will be June 28, 2016 at Entelo in San Francisco. 

Also, if you'd like to do a quick 5 - 10 minute lightning talk please ping me via meetup or twitter (@baldwinmathew). We'd like to include more quick sessions to demo tricks, neat things, new apps, etc. 


6:30 - 7:00 - Social

7:00 - 7:30 - Shri Javadekar - Applatix -  Scalable and Reliable Kubernetes on AWS

AWS provides a feature-rich and battle-hardened infrastructure to run Kubernetes. However, getting the architecture right for running a production grade, reliable and scalable Kubernetes cluster is not straight forward.In this talk, we’ll present our experiences in running Kubernetes on AWS to achieve that. We’ll talk about the problems and limitations we ran into so that you may think about those upfront.

7:30 - 8:00 - Jayanth Gummaraju - BanyanOps - Securing Microservice Interactions in Kubernetes

Interacting microservices in Kubernetes have a large dynamic attack surface from exposed APIs, communication channels, data-store interactions, and agile deployments. Communication between Kubernetes pods and non-Kubernetes environments further expands the attack surface.

We'll talk about the mechanisms available in Kubernetes to secure interacting microservices, operational challenges of configuring these mechanisms and methods to mitigate these challenges. We'll also outline and demo a security approach that operates independently of infrastructure mechanisms to secure inter-service communications.

8:30 - Open Lightning Talks

Talk 1 (5 min.) - Istio + Calico Network Policy = Love - Gunjan Patel, Tigera

Talk 2 (5 min.) - TBD

8:30 - 9:00 - Social / Wrap-up


Shri Javadekar is a “cloud junkie” at Applatix where his primary focus is running Kubernetes on AWS. Prior to that he worked on a wide variety of projects at VMware and Dell/EMC which included cloud storage systems, distributed data caching, virtual machine fault tolerance, etc.
