What we're about

This is a strategic group for the cross-functional leaders engaged in cloud-based operating models with software-defined data centers. Our members include many cross-functional leadership roles, such as architects, managers, executives, scrum/Kanban masters, Release Train Engineers, business stakeholders, and senior engineers. The dialog is centered around the disruptive effects of cloud orchestration technologies, including how integration of agile management systems can leverage cloud orchestration technologies to increase organizational velocity and operational efficiency. Towards that end, we will have regular events with speakers who will explain new developments, explain reference architectures for leveraging specific tools, and expand everyone’s understanding of what is possible.

Automated Disaster Recovery With Kubernetes

WorkFlow Lounge

We will describe an architecture for fast, elastic, cost effective disaster recovery using Kubernetes. Specifically, we will describe Federated Kubernetes clusters that operate in multiple regions, and in multiple clouds, including both on-prem and public clouds. We show how automated monitoring can trigger automated shifting of workloads from compromised regions into functioning regions within the same Kubernetes cluster. And we will explain automated scaling strategies, both for host networks, and for the Pod networks running inside the Kubernetes layer. This will include a discussion of CI/CD flows, and how automated recovery pipelines can be integrated into CI/CD flows. All of the things we will explain are easily implemented using open source tools. Attendees will leave with an enhanced understanding of how to greatly increase the quality of disaster recovery in their organization. There will also be time for you to meet and greet other like-minded IT innovators who will also attend the MeetUp with you. Please RSVP so that we can know how much food to order.
