Securing Applications and Pipelines on a Container Platform
Securing Applications and Pipelines on a Container Platform

Kubernetes as a Container Platform is becoming a de facto for every enterprise. In my interactions with enterprises adopting container platform, I come across common questions: - How does application security work on this platform? What all do I need to secure? - How do I implement security in pipelines? - What about vulnerabilities discovered at a later point in time? - What are newer technologies like Istio Service Mesh bring to table?In this session, I will be addressing these commonly asked questions that every enterprise trying to adopt an Enterprise Kubernetes Platform needs to know so that they can make informed decisions.

Addressing Critical Shortcomings of ETL Tools for Better Data Analytics
Addressing Critical Shortcomings of ETL Tools for Better Data Analytics

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Extract, transform and load (ETL) tools like AWC Glue bring much needed functionality. This tool enables new approaches to pulling, processing and pushing data from source to target, and introduces concepts such as performing data transformation tasks using SparkSQL scripts in Apache spark environment. However, there are shortcomings with AWS Glue, leading to a number of challenges and questions:

Where are the necessary coding techniques when it comes to dealing with specific data types and many such technical aspects of traditional ETL tools?

How can data analysts rely on the Glue-Dynamic frame concept for some of the key design aspects when it comes to incremental loads design and data conversion process?

How can accurate reporting be achieved when the data processing step truncates decimals points, creating huge data discrepancies?

At Infostretch, we believe these challenges can be handled by utilizing specific database level functions. In this session, we will showcase real-life experience with such deal-breaking scenarios, and demonstrate how to mitigate these issues without jeopardizing reporting accuracy, compromising on quality, or endlessly waiting for new releases.

Attendees will learn how to overcome the critical shortcomings of the AWS Glue ETL tool to achieve success:

How to use specific database level functions without jeopardizing quality

Address issue of truncating decimals to produce accurate reports

Ensure source system KPIs match up with target system KPIs for complete business insights.

Containers: Don't Skeu Them Up. Use Microservices Instead
Containers: Don't Skeu Them Up. Use Microservices Instead

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn't actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches.

In his session at ServerlessSUMMIT, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, will discuss why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rather than mimicking legacy server virtualization workflows and architectures.

It's far more fruitful and useful to approach containers as something fundamentally new and enabling that's part and parcel of an environment including containerized operating systems, container packaging systems, container orchestration like Kubernetes, DevOps continuous integration and deployment practices, microservices architectures, "cattle" workloads, software-defined everything, management across hybrid infrastructures, and pervasive open source as part of a new platform for cloud apps.

The Gravitational Attraction of Cloud: Big Data is Big, But Cloud is Massive
The Gravitational Attraction of Cloud: Big Data is Big, But Cloud is Massive

When Enterprises started adopting Hadoop-based Big Data environments over the last ten years, they were mainly on-premise deployments. Organizations would spin up and manage large Hadoop clusters, where they would funnel exabytes or petabytes of unstructured data.However, over the last few years the economics of maintaining this enormous infrastructure compared with the elastic scalability of viable cloud options has changed this equation.

The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data environments, and cloud data warehouses like Snowflake, Redshift, BigQuery and Azure SQL DW, have given the cloud its own gravity - pulling data from existing environments.

In this presentation we will discuss this transition, describe the challenges and solutions for creating the data flows necessary to move to cloud analytics, and provide real-world use-cases and benefits obtained through adopting cloud big data environments.

Choosing the Right Cloud Environment: Public, Private, or Hybrid
Choosing the Right Cloud Environment: Public, Private, or Hybrid

​​​​In pursuit of enhanced connectivity, scalability, and efficiency, cloud migration is hastening across all industry sectors. In order to unlock the cloud’s benefits, these environments – public, private, and hybrid – must be explicitly architected and engineered to suit the respective applications they will host, while also meeting security and compliance requirements.

How do businesses determine their ideal cloud environment and optimize it post-migration?
In this informative session, we will review and compare:
  • The physical and virtual components of public, private, and hybrid cloud environments;
  • The business considerations that differentiate each environment, including storage space, workloads, compliance, internal staff, and other business requirements;
  • The relationship between organizations, cloud providers, and MSPs;
  • The best practices organizations should consider keeping their cloud environment secure, compliant, and optimized post-migration

Cloud-Native: A New Ecosystem for Putting Containers into Production
Cloud-Native: A New Ecosystem for Putting Containers into Production

The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications.

Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addresses many of the challenges faced by developers and operators as monolithic applications transition towards a distributed microservice architecture. A tracing tool like Jaeger analyzes what's happening as a transaction moves through a distributed system. Monitoring software like Prometheus captures time-series events for real-time alerting and other uses. Grafeas and Kritis provide security policy attestation and enforcement. And there are many more.

In short, there's an entire new cloud-native ecosystem growing up around containers. Come to this talk by Red Hat technology evangelist Gordon Haff and learn all about it.

Serverless Made Media Stream Processing Simpler But Powerful
Serverless Made Media Stream Processing Simpler But Powerful

Function as a Service is the popular solution of Serverless, which runs a short-lived function. In contrast, we will show a new Serverless: run long-lived function to deal with stream data. Running containers per stream, each container's code footprint became small, and the system complexity got significantly simple. This made it easy to realize a new use case like enriching an application with AI-powered analytics using video stream in real-time.

NTT Communications has developed a new platform with Kubernetes to orchestrate this new style of media stream processing. We will throw a live demo to send voice stream from browser to this platform and run media processing functions in real-time. The functions will be open sourced, and all participants can try it out from tomorrow.

Marketing of Blockchain-Related Initiatives vs. Real-World Applications
Throughout the past several years, we at KV LLC have managed to help several companies like YouToken, Libertex, Forex Club, and others with their blockchain-related initiatives, and we noticed the distinct changes in the demand.

In my session, I’ll tell you the transformation of the marketing approach that we had during the peak of ICOs, compared to what we are having right now.

Back in the days, we were focusing on convincing people to purchase one’s idea. We were pretty much promoting something that did not exist and did it quite successfully. Some of those ideas were not even tangible and were too idealistic.

Now, we moved from the era of ICOs and those days when blockchain was just a fancy term (most people did not even know what it meant) to current days, when blockchain technology is used not only by startups, but large companies as well, such as FedEx and Walmart. Promoting small startups raising money for their ICOs was extremely profitable for marketing professionals.

Now the focus has shifted to promoting actual services offered by the players in the field. One of such key players is our client, Propy. Propy is using blockchain technology to automate processes in the real estate world, which will essentially lower the costs spent by property buyers and sellers on transaction fees.

Artificial Intelligence: The Good. The Bad, and The Ugly

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, neural networks. We're in the midst of a wave of excitement around AI such as hasn't been seen for a few decades. But those previous periods of inflated expectations led to troughs of disappointment. This time is (mostly) different.

Applications of AI such as predictive analytics are already decreasing costs and improving reliability of industrial machinery. Pattern recognition can equal or exceed the ability of human experts in some domains. It's developing into an increasingly commercially important technology area. (Although it's also easy to look at wins in specific domains and generalize to an overly-optimistic view of AI writ large.)

In this session, Red Hat Technology Evangelist for Emerging Technology Gordon Haff will examine the AI landscape and identify those domains and approaches that have seen genuine advance and why.

The Great Correction: Why Are Some Enterprises Fleeing the Public Cloud?
The Great Correction: Why Are Some Enterprises Fleeing the Public Cloud?

Signs of a shift in the usage of public clouds are everywhere. Previously, as organizations outgrew old IT methods, the natural answer was to try the public cloud approach; however, the public platform alone is not a complete solution. Complaints include unpredictable/escalating costs and mounting security concerns in the public cloud. Ultimately, public cloud adoption can ultimately mean a shift of IT pains instead of a resolution.

That's why the move to hybrid, custom, and multi-cloud will become more and more prevalent. At the heart of this technology trend exists a custom solution to meet the needs and concerns of enterprise organizations, including compliance, security, and cost issues. The “new normal” of enterprise clients is a world of hybrid and multi-cloud solutions, and it is slowly changing the IT technology landscape. Better tools, better management, and easier adoption are emerging. For instance, such as AWS Outposts and Azure Stack. These are big-time, in-demand technologies in the enterprise space, and as these options evolve, we can expect that additional hybrid solutions and integrations will emerge from the market landscape.

The Resurgence of Ops and their Role in DevOps
The Resurgence of Ops and their Role in DevOps

DevOps has long focused on reinventing the SDLC (e.g. with CI/CD, ARA, pipeline automation etc.), while reinvention of IT Ops has lagged. However, new approaches like Site Reliability Engineering, Observability, Containerization, Operations Analytics, and ML/AI are driving a resurgence of IT Ops. In this session our expert panel will focus on how these new ideas are [putting the Ops back in DevOps or bringing modern IT Ops to DevOps.

Microservice Forensics: Investigating Problems in Production
Microservice Forensics: Investigating Problems in Production

When you’re operating multiple services in production, building out forensics tools such as monitoring and observability becomes essential. Unfortunately, it is a real challenge balancing priorities between building new features and tools to help pinpoint root causes. Linkerd provides many of the tools you need to tame the chaos of operating microservices in a cloud native world.

Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. It even comes with Prometheus to store the metrics for you and pre-built Grafana dashboards to show exactly what is important for your services - success rate, latency, and throughput.

In this session, we’ll explain what Linkerd provides for you, demo the installation of Linkerd on Kubernetes and debug a real world problem. We will also dig into what functionality you can build on top of the tools provided by Linkerd such as alerting and autoscaling.

FinTech 2.0 - Redefined By Blockchain and COMIT
FinTech 2.0 - Redefined By Blockchain and  COMIT

FinTech is a disruptive innovation that denotes the adoption of technologies that have changed how traditional financial services work. While FinTech is now embedded deeply into the financial services ecosystem, the rise of digital age has paved way to FinTech 2.0 – which is rolling out innovative solutions through emerging technologies at a disruptive pace while maintaining the tenets of security and compliances.

Blockchain as a technology has started seeing pilot adoption in FinTech around trade settlements, fraud detection and would need to sort out few of the technology challenges primarily around transaction time, interoperability with existing systems before being fully adopted into mainstream systems. While private blockchain adoption by Banks have taken shape, the challenge of real time transaction settlement, preventing double spend attacks need to be addressed.

COMIT (Cryptographically-secure Off-chain Multi-asset Instant Transaction network) is a super blockchain network that allows for real time transaction which are enforced using off-chain smart contracts.

Throughout this session attendees will learn and understand:

• Blockchain and its adaptation for FinTech 2.0 use cases
• Identify new areas of integration and architectural patterns through COMIT
• Examples of use cases that FinTech can utilize blockchain technology

Using Disaster Recovery as the Foundation to Digital Transformation
Using Disaster Recovery as the Foundation to Digital Transformation

Digital Transformation takes a combination of business and technical processes, best practices, and tools. Key to the success of any digital transformation initiative is disaster recovery tools that foster business continuity. If IT agility, flexibility, and continuous improvement are to be primary goals of your transformation, the underlying platforms can not allow interruptions due to downtime or lack of interoperability. The right DR platform can enable multi-cloud migrations, inter-cloud mobility, and 100% uptime. Experimentation is fostered as journaled backups can easily be rewound and redeployed to any RPO. Your platforms are essentially future proofed as the ability to migrate to and between clouds becomes simple, allowing your transformation initiatives to grow organically to whichever cloud platforms deliver the best features and reliability.

Risk Management When Migrating into a Public Cloud Provider
Risk Management When Migrating into a Public Cloud Provider

As more and more companies embrace the Cloud, many are restricted by pre-cloud policies and requirements; especially when dealing with sensitive data such as PCI, PHI, SPI/PII etc. This makes it hard or not cost effective to enable the migration to the Cloud. With the challenges of a dynamic competition, many are forced to adapt to the Cloud and end up spending excessive operational dollars or compromising on critical components and limiting their effectiveness in leveraging native Cloud services. In this talk we will walk through some of the patterns to consider when moving to the Cloud specifically from a compliance and regulatory requirements perspective. The agenda will cover topics such as:

• Building a Business Case
• Classifying the requirements (Business, Customer, Industry, Data Sovereignty)
• Lift and Ship vs building for the Cloud
• Baking in a Time Factor for setting expectations
• Managing Security, Usability and Cost
• Building re-usable Architecture patterns
• Lessons learnt from the constantly evolving landscape of AWS
• Thoughts on meeting Compliance requirements and passing an Audit

Security Past the Perimeter: An Immune System for the Cloud
Security Past the Perimeter: An Immune System for the Cloud 

In an age of borderless networks, security for the cloud and security for the corporate network can no longer be separated. Security teams are now presented with the challenge of monitoring and controlling access to these cloud environments, at the same time that developers quickly spin up new cloud instances and executives push forwards new initiatives. 
 
The vulnerabilities created by migration to the cloud, such as misconfigurations and compromised credentials, require that security teams take a proactive approach, educating employees about the  risks of human error. Cloud infrastructure and SaaS applications are some of the most notorious network blind spots, and with insider threat posing such a significant risk, visibility has also never been more important — or more difficult. 
 
Powered by AI, Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System technology is the only solution to offer real-time visibility and insight into all parts of a network, regardless of its configuration. By learning a ‘pattern of life’ for all networks, devices, and users, Darktrace can detect threats as they arise and autonomously respond in real time – all without impacting server performance.  
 
In this session, learn: 
  • How AI and machine learning are automating advanced threat detection across today’s borderless networks
  • Why AI-driven visibility of both physical and virtual environments allow you to preempt emerging situations by autonomously responding in real time
  • How a proactive approach to cloud security, including communication amongst employees, clear policies, and early threat detection can help to secure Cloud environments
  • What smart prioritization and visualization of threats mean for resource allocation and lower risk

Real-World Patterns for Edge Computing
Real-World Patterns for Edge Computing

We all know that data is exploding at an unprecedented scale. This is largely being fueled by the explosive growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), currently estimated to approach 50 Billion in number by 2020. Whereas most computing devices were previously largely general purpose, when we are talking about IoT, we are talking about single-purpose vertical products that are all generating and emitting an astounding amount of data.

The recent market migration towards centralized cloud solutions has resulted in a pattern where applications are required to push their data to the cloud for processing. This is not scalable at the rate of data growth generated by the IoT. Additionally, the pattern of use of data is changing. Traditionally, data storage was expensive and deriving insight and making decisions the purview of the database or data warehouse. The advent of big data changed all that, ushering in a new era of mass data storage where decisions are now made in real-time on massive fuzzy data sets by machine learning algorithms (rather than by humans).

Even if there was enough storage in the cloud to store all the data, there is no way near enough network to transport all the data to the cloud. The advent of 5G will only increase the amount of Things creating data, while also creating a further imbalance in the network. The hop from Phone or Thing to cellular base station will be faster than the hop from cellular network to Cloud.

This new architectural shift – and what we will be covering in this session - has been termed edge computing. Rather than attempt to pull all of the data back to the cloud, it makes much more sense to process the data at the point of creation. Instead of moving the data, move the compute, harnessing the processing power and resources of all of the Things.

Hybrid Cloud Security - Why a Prevention-First Approach is Paramount
Hybrid Cloud Security - Why a Prevention-First Approach is Paramount

Enterprises need to understand that their biggest cybersecurity threat is not attackers targeting their data or even malicious insiders – it’s the complexity of and lack of visibility into hybrid-cloud environments.The complex nature of these environments makes them a breeding ground for simple but costly mistakes. This is what happened to AWS in 2017 where one incorrect command knocked their S3 service offline, taking dozens of websites and applications offline, impacting hundreds of thousands of businesses and causing millions of dollars in lost revenue.

In order to avoid these types of errors, enterprises need to better understand which employees have the privileges that can lead to these types of errors. Then, they must proactively manage those privileges to shrink their risk exposure using the principle of least privilege (POLP). If not, they run the risk of compromising every security system, policy and procedure they’ve ever worked to put in place.

Maybe you did have a problem already and you want to analyze it so that it doesn't happen again. We will explore how to enable GELF logging in Ceph and utilizing that with the ELK Stack. Another use we can tie into the ELK stack is the Object storage (RGW). With the use of elasic search we can now search our metadata and sort through important information being stored as objects. This metadata can also be customized with your own fields in RGW. I'll demonstrate live some analysis of a running Ceph cluster with both the logging and RGW metadata search abilities.

Improve SD-WAN Application Performance in Three Simple Steps
Improve SD-WAN Application Performance in Three Simple Steps

Yesterday, applications resided in the data center, while users resided in an office and enterprises relied on carriers for their WAN transport architecture. With this legacy approach, applications resided in centralized data centers with MPLS networks. Today, IT is moving to the cloud and users are mobile with the public internet being an increasingly critical component of the enterprise WAN and application performance. However, as applications move to the cloud, enterprises are struggling with increased application performance issues. Some of these include:

• Slow response times
• Poor app performance
• Internet dependency
• Increased cyber risk
• Poor voice quality
• Video pixilation

• Poor app visibilityEnter the cloud-ready WAN architecture to better leverage SD-WAN. This shift in architecture from the enterprise premises-based data center to communications hubs help hybrid enterprises span the legacy and cloud environments with SD-WAN.

Because SD-WAN is just a technology, it cannot deliver the application performance users need. So to deliver the best application performance, SD-WAN needs to be combined with optimized network routes, communications/applications hubs (racks of switching equipment and or application services deployed in carrier-neutral data centers) and internet peering. But where do you start? Mark Casey, Founder and CEO of Apcela will discuss three simple steps to enable enterprises to get the most out of their SD-WAN technology.

Step 1: Map Your App

Where are your users? Where are your applications? What is the flow between your users and applications?

To ensure high performance with your apps, you need understand where you are going and how to get there. As applications move out of the data center, we don’t know exactly where they are, so it is necessary to map your apps. Once you know where your users and applications are, you can strategically deploy your communications/applications hubs to optimize performance between your users and their cloud environments.

Step 2: Leverage Distributed Communications/Applications Hubs

Communications hubs are global, carrier-neutral, colocation data centers with robust marketplaces of services that provide high performance, low latency, low cost with internet peering and direct interconnects to the cloud. They are the best way to optimize connectivity to multiple cloud providers through a single peering point. From them, you can deploy distributed compute and distributed security.

Step 3: Deploy SD-WAN Overlays

Once the communications/applications hubs are strategically deployed, you can apply an SD-WAN overlay and have something powerful by fully leveraging SD-WAN’s capabilities including:

• Application aware routing: Route traffic based on application and/or user for better performance

• Enhanced analytics: Because SD-WAN works with a single API, you can tap into that API and pull the data (on the network underlay and overlay) outside the interface and analyze that data. This can help with issues like faster remediation to look at multiple systems to find the root cause of network and application performance issues.

• Dynamic security policies: Extend your SD-WAN security policies for a more flexible approach. For example, this can be from an AWS instance to O365. Use the SD-WAN to bypass the full firewall and only route trusted traffic to a trusted cloud application – still fully encrypted and with full security.

• Programmable network: Once you have the programmable network, you can develop algorithms off your analytics to monitor and analyze current issues and prevent future ones.

These simple steps get the hybrid side of the WAN synced up with the cloud.

Using Artificial Intelligence for Evil
Using Artificial Intelligence for Evil

Artificial intelligence is positively affecting our world in previously unimaginable ways across many different industries. The use of AI is particularly interesting in the cybersecurity industry because of its unique ability to scale and prevent previously unseen zero-day attacks and for automating complicated analysis and processes at machine speed. But just in the way drug cartels built their own submarines and cellphone towers to evade law enforcement, so too will cyber-criminals build their own AI systems to carry out malicious attacks.

AI is a force for good and has demonstrated great success thus far in security applications; but AI can also be used for evil. Malcolm Harkins, Chief Security and Trust Officer at Cylance, will cover the basics of AI technology, how AI is currently being used for evil and suggested ways to combat AI attacks.

Through this session attendees will learn and understand:

• What AI is and is not, how an AI algorithm is developed.

• How AI algorithms can be undermined and how AI can be used by attackers.

• How AI is being successfully used in security and what the future may hold.

UniModal IT for Financial Services
UniModal IT for Financial Services

Back in 2014 Gartner came up with the term “Bi-Modal” – with Mode 1 referring to the legacy systems or the System of Records, which was seen more as “keeping the lights on” mode, much to do with stability, whereas Mode 2 referred to the System of Innovation or the System of Differentiation with the need to deal with speed, innovation, and agility.
While there is varied opinion around the very notion of Bi-modal IT, this term has been sold eloquently to C-Suite and for the last 3-4 years CIO’s have been grappling with - “how to deal with 2 speed IT”- essentially how to transform while keeping the light on.
This talk essentially will provide the audience with the insight of "how to move to a Single Speed or Unimodal IT, where they can think of achieving IT Agility not only in the System of Engagement but also in the System of Records. Using DevOps as the underlying lever this talk will elaborate on how to gain speed and velocity without comprising on stability and resiliency across the application portfolio. It will explain how to stand up an end to end integrated DevOps pipeline not only on the distributed technologies (java, .net, node) but also on the legacy side of the house including Mainframe, iseries, and AS400. It will further introduce some of the best practices which the enterprise as a whole needs to adopt to graduate to a Unimodal IT.

Not Your Mother’s Cloud: Best Practices for Enterprise Hybrid Cloud
Not Your Mother’s Cloud: Best Practices for Enterprise Hybrid Cloud

To enable their developers, ensure SLAs and increase IT efficiency, Enterprise IT is moving towards a unified, centralized approach for managing their hybrid infrastructure. As if the journey to the cloud - private and public - was not difficult enough, the need to support modern technologies such as Containers and Serverless applications further complicates matters. This talk covers key patterns and lessons learned from large organizations for architecting your hybrid cloud in a way that:

Supports self-service, “public cloud” experience for your developers that’s consistent across any infrastructure.

Gives Ops peace of mind with automated management of DR, scaling, provisioning, deployments, etc.

Goes beyond VMs, to future-proof your solution to support Containers, Serverless, and what’s coming next

Improves CAPEX and OPEX across the board, and gets you to a deployable, scalable solution without having to spend years re-architecturing or developing complex integrations.

Best Practices for GDPR-Complaint Blockchain

The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) not only applies to European companies but also to companies outside of the EU who conduct business with EU businesses and consumers. According to the EU Blockchain Observatory and Forum, “Government agencies and regulators in Europe have embraced this new [blockchain] technology for its potential innovation in Europe, and have stated many times that while their goal is the protection of individual rights, they are by no means looking to end blockchain."

Will you be prepared for projects that designate blockchain as the best fit; however, the blockchain business network has to be GDPR compliant? This session covers

(1) the regulations that apply

(2) how to implement the Right To Be Forgotten (RTBF) process without sacrificing immutability, and

(3) how automation with smart contracts is critical for success. In essence, challenges can be overcome with the right blockchain architecture and by following recommended best practices.

The Era of Digital Transformation
In the Era of Digital Transformation, It’s Time for Enterprise Networking to Embrace Cloud Architectures

We are in the midst of the era of Digital Transformation. Cloud computing has become synonymous with computing. We believe that cloud networking will, within the next 24 months, become the new vernacular for networking. The same paradigm shift that has revolutionized computing will transform networking.Over time, monolithic architecture moved into client/server architectures, which then evolved into service-oriented architectures, which has in turn given way to the now ubiquitous microservices/container model. This microservices architecture is the mainstay of cloud and public cloud computing, as well as serverless/utility computing models. The benefits to cloud software architectures are many, including horizontal scale, distributed services and databases, fault tolerance and containerization and programming language independence to name a few. 
It is these attributes that we see are for the most part in the large, global SaaS applications such as Amazon’s e-commerce website, Netflix’s streaming service, Facebook and Twitter’s social networks. The same capabilities – with the same global, highly available, and horizontal scale – can be applied to enterprise networking.

As we know, the heart of networking is routing. Interestingly, routing algorithms have maintained the exact same architecture for 30 years. Border Gateway Protocol (BGP4), the routing protocol for the Internet, has been in use since 1994, and has been virtually untouched. These protocols are designed for resiliency and autonomous operation. Even so, there are challenges with the architecture and protocols – most significant is that of Internet performance. Issues with scaling and convergence plague BGP operations, and there have been proposals to replace it altogether. But that has proven impossible due to the massive global installed base. However, the fastest solution and next best option is to augment BGP.

As the industry ramps up digital transformation with AI, ML, IoT and other new technologies, the Internet needs to keep up with the demand and be able to scale, automate and perform.
Building atop BGP4’s flat, decentralized architecture, new routing protocols are leveraging cloud software architectures to develop fast, scalable, and performance-driven routing protocols, embracing both the centralized and the distributed nature of cloud computing.

In this session, we’ll look at the augmentation of BGP using performance feedback loops and centralized orchestration in order to deliver consistent high throughput, mitigate packet loss, and reduce latency.

The Hybrid Cloud Chess Match
The Hybrid Cloud Chess Match

As enterprise workloads proliferate, the dynamic nature of hybrid cloud deployments make the management of both cyber threats and compliance a significant challenge.According to RightScale, on average, companies are using nearly five different cloud environments at a time. Just over one-half are deploying a hybrid cloud strategy, as opposed to only one of five which are committed to a multiple public cloud environment and one of ten which are deploying a multiple private cloud strategy.

In this talk, Caveonix CEO and co-founder, Kaus Phaltankar will address how enterprises must manage their risk posture given this new state of complex hybrid cloud environments, regardless of where workloads reside.

To win in chess, you must stay at least one step ahead of your opponent by anticipating what you have that’s valuable and then developing strategies to keep it “safe.” Workload protection functions very much in the same manner, only at a far greater scale.

Hybrid cloud workloads are highly volatile and have a multitude of potential configuration issues, and potential vulnerabilities due to their installed software versions and patches. They may also have dynamic inter-dependencies and exposure to other application workloads.

In multi-cloud environments, each individual cloud may be based on different technology implementations that result in inconsistent security and policy frameworks. This makes the management of cybersecurity and compliance requirements across the hybrid cloud increasingly complex.

Kaus will address how to protect these workloads in a hybrid cloud environment. Attendees will learn why enterprises need to have a consistent security solution that understands what is being deployed, where it is deployed, what has changed, how they may be subject to the latest threats, how to deploy consistent security policies, and how to proactively mitigate these risks.

Why the Cloud is Perfect for Data Protection
Why the Cloud is Perfect for Data Protection

While more companies are now leveraging the cloud to increase their level of data protection and management, there are still many wondering “why?”

The answer: the cloud actually brings substantial advancements to the data protection and management table that simply aren’t possible without it. The easiest advantage to envision? Unlimited scalability. If a data protection tool is properly designed, the capacity should automatically expand to meet any customer’s needs. The second advantage: the cloud is the simplest way to centralize the storage of all secondary data sources while also providing unlimited compute that can be used to gain additional insight and business value from that data. Finally, the ability to do automated Disaster Recovery (DR) without maintaining a DR facility is unquestionably a major value of the cloud, and simply isn’t possible otherwise. Join W. Curtis Preston, AKA Mr. Backup, as he explains the benefits of cloud-based data protection and management, how to decide if a cloud-based solution is right for you, and best practices when evaluating data management vendors.

Evolving Team Roles in the Face of Software Disruption
Evolving Team Roles in the Face of Software Disruption

Technology has changed tremendously in the last 20 years. From onion architectures to APIs to microservices to cloud and containers, the technology artifacts shipped by teams has changed. And that’s not all - roles have changed too. Functional silos have been replaced by cross-functional teams, the skill sets people need to have has been redefined and the tools and approaches for how software is developed and delivered has transformed. When we move from highly defined rigid roles and systems to more fluid ones, we gain agility at the cost of control. But where do we want to keep control? How do we take advantage of all these new changes without losing the ability to efficiently develop and ship great software? And how should program and project managers adapt?

In this session, Padmashree will discuss the reality of the state of software organizations and the corresponding implications to a fairly challenging profession - program management.

Leveraging AI for Video Summarization

With digital video content creation going viral and assuming the bulk of Internet traffic, how can the deluge of video content be analyzed effectively to derive insights and ROI? After all, video is not only huge in size, but it is complex given various visual, audio and temporal elements. Video summarization (a mechanism for generating a short video summary via key frame analysis or video skimming) has become a popular research topic industry-wide and across academia. Video thumbnail generation and summarization has been developed for years, but deep learning and reinforcement learning is changing the landscape and emerging as the winner for optimal frame selection. Recent advances in Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) are improving the quality, aesthetics and relevancy of the frames to represent the original videos. Attendees will gain an understanding of the various challenges facing the industry today, emerging AI-powered solutions around video summarization and how unsupervised learning can help deliver video content understanding.

Get Behind Your OpenStack and Transform Your Adoption
Get Behind Your OpenStack and Transform Your Adoption

When it comes to OpenStack adoption you might need to think of some more ways in which you can successfully adopt it in your organization. As I have been operating OpenStack for several years there have been some key objectives which will help increase your adoption.

I'll go over a few of these objectives from workload migration including P2V,V2V,C2C,H2H to Workload transformation. I will talk about the process, requirements, tools, and leave you with all you need to press forward with greater OpenStack adoption.

I will provide a demonstration of some of the tools in action so you can see how you can successfully inspect a workload, prepare it, and build it for running on OpenStack all in an automated fashion with little to few steps required. The goal is to leave you with the confidence that this has been done before and you can accomplish it too.

The Role of Fast Data in Continuous Hybrid Cloud
The Role of Fast Data in Continuous Hybrid Cloud

In Hybrid Cloud scenarios you are combining services from multiple clouds, or from a cloud with on-premise or colocated services.

The conversation about hybrid-cloud is often related to applications, virtual machines, micro-services and how these things are scaled or moved between clouds or on-premise and cloud. However, a bigger consideration is the data.Almost all hybrid-cloud use-cases require movement of data in addition to movement and scalability of services. Spinning up additional service instances in a cloud, to rapidly and elastically scale, is useless if these services can’t access the data they need.

In this presentation we will consider, through real-world use-cases and examples, how to implement cloud migrations, cloud bursting, and cloud analytics, and how continuous fast data feeds are required to achieve them.

Widespread Adoption of Serverless: Any Cloud, Any Workload
What Is Needed for Widespread Adoption of Serverless: Any Cloud, Any Workload

Developers today want to develop code and not worry about the infrastructure. That is exactly what the serverless computing promises but there are technical and business challenges that are inhibiting its widespread adoption. The serverless frameworks today are cloud-specific creating serious vendor lock-in which eventually becomes a business challenge.

The technical challenges are related to abstractions needed for the adoption and acceleration into application domains and new markets. It requires developers to combine many other services to get the most out of it. Eventually, learning about these services becomes a burden to developers. Also, the technology available today is serverless compute and not serverless storage.

So it is not suitable for long-running and stateful workloads. The current serverless frameworks are only available in public cloud so they are not the best option for the companies that want to run their applications on their private cloud. In this session the audience will learn what is needed in the framework to support any cloud and any workload which will lead to widespread adoption of these technologies.

Major Potential in Untried Blockchain But Only Few Companies Have Anything Concrete in the Works
Major Potential in Untried Blockchain

Businesses are well-equipped digitally and should prepare for the next steps. Blockchain offers interesting potentials. Entrepreneur Lars Seier Christensen is looking ahead to next generation blockchain.

Direct trade between customer and supplier without the need for any intermediary is sounding increasingly attractive to businesses. Blockchain can offer the technological possibilities that many are looking into – but only few companies have anything concrete in the works.

The financial sector is governed by two factors: complying with rules and regulations and making money. Focus on compliance makes it more difficult to be innovative, because it encourages the sector to keep development within its own walls for fear of trouble with authorities.

The Hard, and Not So Obvious, Challenges with Building, Maintaining and Operating a Global Edge Computing Network
The Hard, and Not So Obvious, Challenges with Building, Maintaining and Operating a Global Edge Computing Network

Creating a network of edges is a much harder problem than it appears. It is more complicated than merely standing one or two servers in a few (hundred) far-flung data centers and installing an open source stack in each node.

That’s a start but there is far more to it than that. This session will cover just some of the hard and not-so-obvious things you'll need to do to build out a scalable application delivery platform at the edge, including:

How do you securely deploy an application image, (e.g. a container) to every edge in your network and run them as needed?

How do you do this several times a day if the application developer needs to apply fixes, add enhancements, etc.?

How do you ensure that your application is running in a location close to your end users, without amassing a massive infrastructure bill?

How do you remotely manage a large number of compute clusters, assuming each edge is some container-specific environment?

How do you implement network and resource isolation so no one workload impacts another?
How do you make sure everything works in concert, on a global basis?

OpenStack and Kubernetes Get the Heat Treatment

Take advantage of autoscaling, and high availability for Kubernetes with no worry about infrastructure. Be the Rockstar and avoid all the hurdles of deploying Kubernetes. So Why not take Heat and automate the setup of your Kubernetes cluster? Why not give project owners a Heat Stack to deploy Kubernetes whenever they want to?

Hoping to share how anyone can use Heat to deploy Kubernetes on OpenStack and customize to their liking. 

This is a tried and true method that I've used on my OpenStack clusters and I will share the benefits, bumps along the way and the lessons learned.

These Heat templates will deploy a cluster of Nova instances running Kubernetes from the Kubic project. 

The cluster uses Flannel to provide an overlay network connecting pods deployed on different nodes. You can determine the initial size of the cluster via a configuration parameter when you deploy it, and the cluster will scale dynamically (up to a specified maximum size) due to CPU load on the Kubernetes nodes.

Multi-Cloud Migration Provisioning-as-a-Service
Multi-Cloud Migration Provisioning-as-a-Service

Public clouds are being widely adopted by organizations of varying sizes. However, lately the public cloud space has gotten increasingly crowded with large number of players. Among them, few public cloud providers stand out and have a dominant market share like AWS, Azure and GCP.
These service providers offer a large variety of services which keeps growing over the period. And as a result, if an organization uses bunch of services from these providers, managing them could become a cumbersome task after they achieve scale. To get rid of vendor locking and utilize the best services out of available from cloud service provides multi-cloud is getting top option to migration on cloud for enterprises.

An enterprise running with large legacy systems would like to move towards latest technologies and modernization with vendor agnostic, provision of using best services, faster time-to-market, cost optimization and above all easy to operate in cost efficient manner.

What can also become tedious is the provisioning of multi-cloud resources. Data lake, Analytics, AI, Machine learning, serverless / micro-services architecture wherein various interfaces for modern web, mobile applications, voice interfaces etc. As a result, once the application architecture is ready, provisioning can take a lot of time and can be error prone. Also, once the resources are being provisioned, integrating them with business applications for seamless continuous integration and deployment, is another challenge.

In order to alleviate some of the challenges listed above, Multi-Cloud Migration Provisioning-as-a-Service is an offering that focuses on simplifying the Enterprises migration to cloud.

Serverless also simplifies Operations and reduces cost - as the Kubernetes container infrastructure required to run these applications is automatically spun up and scaled precisely with the workload, to optimally handle all runtime requests.

Recent advances in open source technology now allow organizations to run Serverless and Kubernetes reliably, at scale, also on on-premises and private cloud infrastructure. The ability to achieve the benefits of Serverless on existing infrastructure - and not having to rely solely on public clouds - has greatly increased the adoption of Serverless across industries, including financial services, IoT, retail, healthcare, and more.

Serverless offers an incredible opportunity for business accelerate innovation and reduce operational costs - both for green field applications, as well as for established organizations with legacy applications and technical debt.

In this talk, we would discuss 3 key uses cases primed for Serverless, and share design patterns and tips to allow you to take advantage of Serverless in your organization, today.

We will cover:

Serverless as a ‘strangler’ pattern for modernizing monolithic, legacy applications and infrastructure.
Event-driven processing: from fraud detection, transaction processing, mobile apps, IoT sensors, etc.
Batch and real-time big data augmentation/data exposure
We will also use the open source Fission.io serverless framework to demo how you can implement these use cases to run Serverless apps on-premises or in the cloud.

Reinventing Talent Acquisition DevOps Style

Just as brilliant drummers have their pick of bands, top cloud-native developers and project managers can be choosy about their employers. They’re the rock stars of the business and they know it. If you’re not a “destination company” like Amazon, Facebook or Google, how do you entice top talent to work for you? And if you’re being wooed, what are the tip-offs that you’ll be valued?
We’ve been asking ourselves the same questions, and in this talk I'll share an approach that’s working. Your company can become more of a destination company in today’s “seller’s market” by applying a DevOps mindset to the way you recruit, hire, onboard and retain talent.

Serverless Applications vs Apps Built in Docker Containers
Serverless Applications vs Apps Built in Docker Containers

In 2017, Docker reached 24% adoption while Lambda reached 23.5% adoption among Amazon Web Services customers. Yet, the adoption rate of serverless and cost savings are dramatically better than what virtual containers can offer. Amazon, Google, and Microsoft are all pushing serverless because it’s easier and cheaper for their customers. Also, once apps are built using serverless frameworks, there’s a higher switch-over cost to go from one cloud to another. We'll discuss this and also talk about how brand loyalty is something every subscription service is hoping to achieve. Amazon, Google, and Microsoft are strengthening their offerings with serverless in the cloud.

Building Maintainable, Observable Applications on Serverless Architecture
Building Maintainable, Observable Applications on Serverless Architecture

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all.

However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Longer function invocation times (referred to as cold starts) become very important to track, because they impact the response time of the service and will impose additional cost. Additionally, the transition to smaller individual components (much like breaking a monolithic application into microservices) results in a simpler deployment model, but makes the system as a whole increasingly complex.

In this talk, the speaker will discuss patterns and best practices around architecting and implementing code in serverless environments, specifically around how to build maintainable serverless code and minimize the occurrence of cold starts. Additionally, the speaker will cover how to properly instrument applications and supporting services so that your systems remain easily observable.

CI/CD In the Serverless Era
CI/CD In the Serverless Era

Serverless development introduces a new methodology of how to build real “cloud native” applications or workloads. In monolithic and microservices architectures, it is simple to develop locally and then push the code to the CI/CD pipeline to be integrated and tested with the work of others. It is relatively simple to write and run an integration test as well and use a staging environment like the "real" environment. In some teams, developers are doing all these tasks, but in many, there are dedicated DevOps and QA engineers to continue the process after the developer checks in his code.

Practicing serverless, the developer carries the entire responsibility to do all of the above. In this talk, we’ll share the process and tools we use for CI/CD to our serverless based application at Lumigo.

- Dev Environment
- Testing Methodology
- Deployment Pipeline, combining Bash, AWS CLI, and Serverless Framework to create a seamless
- CI/CD pipeline.
- Monitoring

Designing a Highly Secured, Hybrid, Multi-Cloud Infrastructure for an Enterprise -- a Case Study
Designing a Highly Secured, Hybrid, Multi-Cloud Infrastructure for an Enterprise -- a Case Study

For many large enterprises and government agencies, establishing a cloud infrastructure consisting of multiple cloud service providers (CSPs) is a necessity to provide alternative services, avoid vendor lock-in, benefit from competing prices, and mitigate potential risks. These large enterprise and government agencies also require hybrid cloud infrastructure to meet controls when their data centers connect to the public clouds for identity federation, security monitoring, cloud management, and on-prem to cloud system communication. Implementing comprehensive security controls for moderate to high security categorization, therefore, obtaining Authorization to Operate (ATO) for moderate to high security impact systems, is another necessity for the enterprises and agencies to deploy their mission critical systems to the cloud.How do you put all these requirements together, and design a highly secured, hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure for an enterprise with satisfactory security, usability, stability, manageability and performance quality attributes? In this presentation, we will work through a case study to build an enterprise-level multi-cloud infrastructure in AWS and Azure. Specifically, we will present:

•Multi-cloud adoption strategy
•Enterprise cloud account management
•High level hybrid multi-cloud architecture
•Multi VPC (AWS) or vNet (Azure) network design
•On-premises to Cloud network design
•High availability, backup and recovery
•Security-in-depth architecture

Identity federation, multi-factor authentication to cloud portal and VM console
Centralized perimeter and zone security design
Centralized logging, auditing design
Centralized SIEM design
Anti-virus, intrusion detection, vulnerability management

•Cloud operation: patching and upgrading strategy
•Single-pane-of-glass multi-cloud management
•End-to-end infrastructure as code to automate the entire cloud and on-premises service provisioning

At the end, we will also present a technology decision tree used to facilitate the process for selecting appropriate on-premises and cloud technologies based on security, viability, total cost of ownership (TCO), and efficiency. We will also discuss and demonstrate a cloud center of excellence (CoE) framework and initiative to improve the maturity of cloud adoption processes.

Leader Election Process Inside Dynamic Auto Scalable Software Applications
Dynamic Auto Scalable Software Applications

Dynamic auto scalable software applications having multiple custom schedulers running as part of a Multi-Cluster often have the need to execute code in exactly one Application Instance. This pattern can be used to implement processing which must only be performed once within the entire application. This is achieved via a leader election and even job distribution. Microservices utilize this software pattern to ensure all future schedulers that will wake up in the future will stream the events for marketing campaigns. It is so important that we should not reach a customer with several duplicate messages through multiple channels like email, Direct Mail etc. When a custom configured, persisted scheduler wakes only one Application Instance will start processing the customer information to determine the eligibility to reach a customer and stream those events through the specific channels. Ensuring exactly one Node/Scheduler election to run a custom scheduled job ensures events are not duplicated resulting in duplication of work and wasted computer resources from technology and duplicate campaigns from business perspective.

Also, a Scheduler is non-preemptive. Thus, if an Application Instance is running the Scheduler and another Application Instance is eligible to run the Scheduler, the eligible Application Instance must not preempt the Scheduler already running; running Scheduler is allowed to complete.
Apart from that having multiple custom configured scheduled jobs, this algorithm should be responsible to evenly and randomly choosing a node for load distribution of the job election leaders.
The leader election algorithm is aware of the Application Instance version. If a Multi- Cluster contains Application Instances with different versions the Scheduler must only run in the newer version Application Instances.
