An intro to EKS - managed Kubernetes from AWS (Matt Dalton, Finimize)
AWS launched their managed Kubernetes service EKS late last year, and at Finimize we migrated across shortly afterwards. Here I'll take you through our experiences setting this up, which could help anyone on AWS looking for a way into the Kubernetes ecosystem.

Matt is VP Engineering at Finimize a Fintech startup currently scaling their iOS app that empowers users to become financially savvy in just a few minutes a day. His previous background includes large-scale microservices deployments for banking infrastructure, as well as building devOps tooling to support multiple product and infrastructure teams.

ForgeRock - the most cloud friendly identity platform (Andrew Potter, ForgeRock)
Pick a cloud, any cloud! Then deploy a battle hardened, secure, scalable and performant identity platform supporting 100s millions of users in minutes!
At ForgeRock we have developed Cloud Deployment Models that go beyond simple Docker images to provide our customers with fully automated capabilities including deployment charts, monitoring services, backup/restore, configuration as code, scalability tests, Site Reliability Guides and typical infrastructure costs for deployments grouped into ‘t-shirt’ sizes of Small (1million users), Medium (10 million users), and Large (100 million users).
We are so confident in our CDM that we use this to power our SaaS and PaaS services too and we’ll take a brief peak at those.
Our customers also love the way we can help them accelerate value & reduce cost through DevOps so we’ll also present a brief customer case study.

Andrew Potter is a Senior Solution Architect at ForgeRock generalising in all things ForgeRock! As part of that he has recently been getting his hands dirty with the ForgeRock CDM, working with customers, partners, and ForgeRock Cloud Engineering teams. Certainly *not* a Kubernetes expert...but maybe has just enough knowledge to deploy an identity platform!
