We're back online once again and happy to have Binura Gunasekara from Platformer giving us a talk on their work with Anthos GKE on AWS.
Binura is a Software Engineer who's passionate about all things cloud, code, and coffee. He has fallen in love with Kubernetes over the years and is currently designing and developing cloud-native and distributed systems at Platformer.
Why run "Anthos GKE on AWS"? why not use EKS instead. Sometimes life isn't simple as we would like. There are client requirements where customers have selected multiple clouds for various reasons. From the Kubernetes perspective we believe to-date Google has delivered the best offerings.
In his session, Binura is going to demonstrate how you could keep all of your workloads closer to where your data and other resources are and utilise Google's Anthos GKE on AWS to manage Kubernetes environment/s.
