    Automating Kubernetes Cluster Operations with Operators This talk will present how these deployments looked like and explain the reasons for switching from one to the next. You will also learn how we currently operate PhraseApp with Kubernetes including topics such as image building, deploying, logging and monitoring.

    About Timo Timo Derstappen is the CTO and Co-Founder of Giant Swarm. Besides managing and scaling distributed services for the past 15 years he is prepared to move off-the-grid as soon as the time is right.

    Embracing Failure in a Container World Sooner or later, all complex systems will fail. It's not a matter of "if", it's a matter of "when". There will always be something that can -- and will -- go wrong, especially with today's distributed systems. Accept it and focus on the things you can control: creating a quality service that is resilient to failure.

    About Mathias Mathias works for Gremlin Inc., a US-based startup that provides "failure testing as a service". In the past, he used to operate Jimdo's in-house PaaS for microservices. Mathias is the creator of the Production Ready mailing list, where he regularly shares articles on building and breaking production systems.

    Heterogeneous Kubernetes Clusters For some time now, Kubernetes (and Docker) supported native Windows containers; this talk will show why and how this approach is a potential game changer in the container orchestration landscape. It will include hands-on demo on running mixed workloads in Azure Container Service, the multi-framework service from Microsoft Azure.

    About Alessandro Alessandro started working with Linux and Open source back in 1999 while studying for his degree in Chemistry. After his Ph.D., he choose to pursue a career in IT and covered many roles and position, lastly landing as Technical Evangelist for Microsoft, specializing in DevOps, containers and Azure. Alessandro is active in various communities and meetups (he started the DevOps and Openstack meetups in Amsterdam) and he's passionate about all cutting edge techs, including AI, IoT, and bots.

    Microservice and Now? Many have already recognized the advantages and benefits of Microservices. Furthermore, many have already decided about implementations and done first steps or even finished solutions in place. However, new (but somehow familiar) questions arise. How does the microservice from my machine is coming into production? Does it fit into my existing architecture? Is it safe? How do I test? Do I have to test at all and where is all this running? "Microservice and now?" is an experience report providing you a few impulses on how to make your microservices journey more enjoyable.

    About Bjoern Bjoern is a System Engineer at Nexinto GmbH. He started his career back in 2004 as a Software Developer. He decided to extend his horizon quite soon and finished his B.Sc. in Computational Science and Engineering in 2011 at the TU Hamburg Harburg. After his studies, he worked several years as a QA Engineer, Software Developer and System Engineer at eSailors IT Solutions Ltd. During this journey he learned to work and live the DevOps culture. He is now working at Nexinto to push automation, continuous delivery and cloud / container technologies.

  • Tobias Schwab

    Tobias Schwab PhraseApp

    The Long Road from Capistrano to Kubernetes Over the last 5 years the deployment of PhraseApp changed from a single bare metal Hetzner server to auto-scaled and immutable AMIs, a custom docker setup and finally to a Kubernetes cluster.

    About Tobias Tobias is co-founder of PhraseApp, a SAAS platform for advanced software localization. Before starting PhraseApp he implemented Continuous Delivery Pipelines with and without containers for projects such as Simfy, Wimdu, Wunderlist and Locafox. Stumbling over docker in early 2013 he instantly knew that containers will be the most important innovation in IT operations for the next decade.

    Native, Distributed, Reliable Storage for Kubernetes Modern software storage systems are inherently complex. They are composed of numerous distributed components, require careful balancing of resources, and have stringent performance requirements. If you're running your applications on a public cloud, you're typically shielded from this complexity and can utilize managed storage services like EBS, S3 and EFS. If you're running on-premise, however, your choices are quite limited and typically result in using traditional big-iron storage systems and SAN/NAS. In this talk, JJ will outline the deployment and operation of a production-ready storage cluster using Kubernetes. Storage nodes will run as pods and enumerate the available storage devices within the cluster. JJ will also show how some of the features of Kubernetes including controllers/operators, third-party resources, resource management, and rolling upgrades which can lead to enabling more powerful and resilient storage clusters.

    About Joseph Joseph is a founder of Kismatic (the enterprise Kubernetes company, recently acquired by Apprenda), founder of KubeCon (the Kubernetes community conference, now owned and run by CNCF after being donated where he is also a founding member). He has spent the last 10 years working in high growth technology startups with a focus on enterprise software and SOA / middleware and more recently Linux container technology. Joseph is currently an EIR at Quantum Corporation working on ideas and plans to start a new company while also helping with Rook.

    How to Go Faster with Microservices and Containers In this talk, Ilya will explain what it means for an organisation to become truly cloud-native and the great implication of how this allows teams to go faster, given the right technical choices are made - microservice, container and orchestration. To illustrate the theory, Ilya will show off a sample reference microservices app, a socks shop. We'll look at how it's been developed, and then deploy it to three different container platforms, and then use Weave Cloud to find out how to productionise this app, with network security, monitoring and visibility tools, and as well as continuous delivery. - cloud native - the meaning of scalability - agile delivery - the continuous loop with with comprehensive metric system and security policy - demo - building microservices stack on container orchestration platform.

    About Ilya Ilya is a Developer Experience Engineer at Weaveworks, focused on making the adoption of microservices easier. Prior to Weaveworks, Ilya worked at Xively, where he personally experienced the shift to a true DevOps culture. He began to shift focus down the stack, becoming one of the early evangelists of and contributors to open source projects in the emerging Docker/container ecosystem.
