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.

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.

New Serverless Uses: Maximizing GPU Utilization and Performance
New Serverless Uses: Maximizing GPU Utilization and Performance

GPUs are useful resources for compute-intensive and highly parallelizable operations tasks such as streaming and parallel computing. However, inefficient resource management generates heavy expenses. Yaron Haviv will explain how to fragments applications to microservices and scale GPUs in and out with serverless for maximum resource efficiency. Instead of wasting costs on every data scientist having his own GPU, 10 data scientists can share 3-4 GPUs and use them as needed.

He will demonstrate how to improve GPU utilization and sharing, resulting in almost four times faster application performance when compared to the use of GPUs within monolithic architectures. Participants will learn how serverless platforms can be fifty times faster when offering GPU support.

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.

OpenStack and Kubernetes Get the Heat Treatment
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.

Serverless Applications You Can Implement Today: 3 Key Use Cases and Design Patterns
Serverless Applications You Can Implement Today: 3 Key Use Cases and Design Patterns

Serverless applications increase developer productivity and time to market, by freeing engineers from spending time on infrastructure provisioning, configuration and management. 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.

Serverless vs Containers: A Case Study of Building and Securing Real-World Microservices
Serverless vs Containers: A Case Study of Building and Securing Real-World Microservices 

Amazon, Google, and Microsoft are all pushing Serverless because they claim that it is easier and cheaper for their customers. At the same time, we've seen a rapid adoption of container technologies and orchestrators (such as Kubernetes), with similar promises of faster, cheaper deployments at "an unprecedented scale".
As the size and cost of our own cloud infrastructure was increasing, we decided to try implementing a backend component that's powering one of our biggest products using both Serverless and Containers. The goal was to compare these technologies in terms of overall developer experience, cost, scaling and security, to see if it would make sense for us to use one or the other. 
During this session, he'll present the results of this Serverless VS Containers experimentation. Attendees will get an overview of what we discovered in terms of benefits and downsides of each technology, and how to deploy, use, and secure them in the context of a "real-world" application.

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

Let's discuss good serverless practices.
