Containers The Hard Way - Lessons Learned While Building a Cloud Workload Protection Platform

Kubernetes is Google's take on how to manage containers, with significant mileage and adoption since its release.
For many that are strongly rooted in the Amazon world, ECS provides a rock solid integrated clustering solution for containers.

In this session we will share the lessons we've learned, the good, the ugly and the awesome while building and running CI/CD pipeline for our cloud workload protection platform - which runs on Kubernetes, and includes batteries for multiple ECS & K8S clusters on EC2.

19:00 - 19:30 - ECS vs Kubernetes on EC2

Growing popularity of Containers based architecture and CD practices stress the question what is preferable orchestration engine that will provide flexibility , efficiency and easy of use. We believe that Kuberentes meets most of requirements (open source based on Google experience with containers, growing community and tools on top of it). During this session we will show how to migrate from ECS to K8 with minimal penalty and effort.

Oleg Verhovski - CTO & Co-Founder at CodeFresh

19:30 - 20:00 - Implementing ECS auto-scaler
In this session, we will share our knowledge of how to build an Auto-Scaler for ECS.
An ESC Auto-Scaler allows you to better utilize your infrastructure and to be able to scale instantly according to your application exact needs. When building an auto-scaler there are few parameters you need to consider: pending tasks, the tasks resource requirements, port mapping, head room etc. We will deep dive into those topics and talk about the challenges and the way we tackled it in Spotinst.
