About this event


In June we jump into how you can bring your data pipeline into the machine learning era and a dive into Oracle's Fn project.

The meetup will be on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 and starts at 6:30 with light food/beverages, speakers start at 7:00.

7:00 - 7:35 - Democratizing Serverless: the New Open Source, Cloud Agnostic Functions Platform - Chad Arimura, Oracle

Serverless computing is one of the hottest trends in computing right now due to its simplicity and cost efficiency. Oracle recently open sourced a new project that enables developers to run their own Serverless infrastructure anywhere. The platform is container-native, enabling users to write functions in any programming language with excellent support for local development and testing. Fn even allows devs to “bring their own Dockerfile” such that ANY containerized code can be used as a function.

7:35 - 8:10 - Hybrid Cloud (Kubernetes, Spark, HDFS, …)-as-a-Service
- Joerg Schad and Steve Woo, Mesosphere

The overall evolution towards microservices has caused a lot of IT leaders to radically rethink architectures and platforms. One can hardly keep up with the rapid onslaught on new distributed technologies. The same people who just asked yesterday, "how can we deploy Docker containers?", are now asking "how can we operate Kubernetes-as-a-Service on-premise?", and are about to start asking "how can we operate the open source frameworks of our choice, such as Spark, TensorFlow, HDFS, and more, as a service across hybrid clouds”.

This session will discuss:
Challenges of orchestrating and operating distributed and stateful services such as Kubernetes, Spark, Kafka, HDFS, TensorFlow
Challenges of operating these technologies across hybrid clouds

For example, using Kubernetes for container lifecycle management is a great step to take, but how can we manage the across the entire lifecycle (deploy, failure, resize, upgrades, and more) for multiple Kubernetes clusters?

8:10 - 8:30 - Wrap-up / Depart


Chad Arimura is a 3x entrepreneur, most recently as co-founder and CEO of Iron.io where he grew a multi-million dollar ARR business helping pioneer serverless computing including some of the earliest usages of the term "serverless" in 2010. Sorry for that. He sold the company in 2017 and joined Oracle.

He is now Vice President of Serverless at Oracle, currently leading The Fn Project, open source serverless FaaS platform and orchestration.

Steve Woo is a Mesosphere SE based in Seattle, with previous experience at VMware and over a decade on the customer and consulting side.

Jörg is the technical lead for community projects at Mesosphere in San Francisco. In his previous life he implemented distributed and in memory databases and conducted research in the Hadoop and Cloud area during his PhD. His speaking experience includes various Meetups, international conferences, and lecture halls.
