Cale Samuel: Director - National, Oracle Digital for Oracle.
Alexey Moseyev: CEO of AVM Consulting
Anowar Isam: Anowar has led multiple Kubernetes deployment projects. His expertise in the are cover broad range: from initial design to final production implementation, from container infrastructure deployment to application redesign. He made k8s revolution for clients in financial, healthcare and security, covering a spectrum of compliance and security challenges.
Having about a dozen end-to-end enterprise deployments for large Enterprise clients in multiple verticals like HR block, MariaDB, Sony makes him one of the top professional in the area. k8s PHD indeed.

Learn about what Kubernetes is, what it isn’t, and why it is the fast growing open source container service. Hear from Kubernetes professionals cover Boston Consulting Group Case Study:

Developing a single product which has multiple applications designed into micro-services, and designing this as a multi-tenant product, which will be used by many customers but the infrastructure will be shared across them.

Kubernetes solved the problem in a cloud-agnostic way. Once the Docker images are pushed to image repositories, those are deployed to the single shared Kubernetes cluster running on OKE via custom kubectl scripts. These kubectl scripts are run from the bastion host by the Octopus Deploy deployment tool. The deployments, services and the pods are client specific but the underlying cluster is same for all the clients. Updates and rollbacks are based on the image version which is tagged with the Image SHA as well as the CI pipeline ID.

Faster deployments and hassle-free rollbacks.
Cloud-agnostic implementation – same kubectl scripts will run on any cloud or any platform.
Complete separation of application environments even though sharing the underlying infrastructure.

Technical Description:
Version Control: GitLab
CI: GitLab-CI
Tech Stack: Python
Artifact: Docker Image
Deployment: Octopus Deploy
Cloud: Oracle Cloud

Objective: Building Docker images for python APIs, pushing those to Oracle cloud image repositories, deploying on Kubernetes cluster running on Oracle k8s engine (OKE).

Demo Environments to learn how Kubernetes is Developer Friendly and Highly Reliable. Free environments for attendees to experience firsthand and learn from seasoned Kubernete professionals.
