Worum es bei uns geht

Cloud Native Computing means to create and drive the adoption of a new computing paradigm that is optimized for modern distributed systems environments capable of scaling to tens of thousands of self healing multi-tenant nodes. We are committed to advancing the development of cloud native technology and services by creating a new set of common container technologies informed by technical merit and end user value, and inspired by Internet-scale computing.
There are many open source projects running under the umbrella of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation: Kubernetes, Prometheus, OpenTracing, Fluentd, Linkerd, gRPC, CoreDNS, Containerd, rkt
This meeting is open to everyone wanting to learn about these projects, both newbies and experts, committed to share their experiences and help others learn.

Session 1: "Observability with OpenTelemetry & Distributed Traces"

Being part of the Lightstep (co-founder of OpenTelemetry) journey, we would like to share with the community the benefits of OpenTelemetry & Distributed Traces: what it changes in the world of Monitoring/Observability/Application Performance Management (APM), the new capabilities and workflows it brings illustrated by examples from our customers.

Speakers: Jean-François Muller & Dennis Kuipers are technical advisors for Lightstep in the region. Lightstep is the co-founder and a major contributor to the OpenTelemetry project. A couple of years ago, Jean-François co-founded a performance engineering consulting company in Switzerland and spent a significant amount of time helping customers improve the performance of their business-critical applications. Dennis has significant experience in both worlds (Development and Operations), he worked with multiple open-source frameworks and vendor solutions to build operation platforms that included Infrastructure/Application (APM) monitoring, event management, service management, and integrations with other systems within major financial institutions.

Session 2: "Protect against unknown security vulnerabilities"

Kubernetes makes it easy to deploy and manage your cloud-native applications, and as such security becomes a challenge in a dynamic containerised environment. It is clear that your containers should not contain vulnerabilities throughout the complete supply chain - from development through to deployment with the relevant admission controls in place. In this talk, you will be shown how the NeuVector project, the first Open-Source Cloud Native Security solution can secure the complete software development lifecycle and can even protect against unknown or unpatched vulnerabilities with its zero-trust runtime security model.

Speaker: Claudio Serrano has over 30 years of experience in IT, holding different positions as Solution Architect at Financial and Telecom Institutions & at IT companies such as HPE, BMC Software, and Microfocus. Currently, he is a Pre-Sales engineer at SUSE covering the Cloud Native portfolio for the DACH region.

Session 3: "How to protect Kubernetes in a Multi-Cloud world"

More and more companies are looking for workload protection or balance in a dynamic world of clouds. Kubernetes already solves many problems. Heavy containers like databases are still challenging in terms of a smooth disaster recovery plan. This data can be persistent and hard to move.
Learn how to protect and move workloads in a multi-cloud world of Google GKE, Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) together with the Netstream Kubernetes Service on Tanzu (NKT).

Speaker: Reto Kasser is one of the founders and CTO of Netstream AG and has over 25 years of experience in ICT. For several years, he has focused on driving the Netstream Cloud Services business operated in company-owned Data Centers.

The event will be recorded (it will not be live-streamed!) and made available later on VSHN's YouTube channel: https://vshn.tv – subscribe to be notified of updates!

Session 1: "Bypassing Security Controls" by Philippe Bogaerts (Fortinet)
Adopting a DevSecOps approach will ensure security from the moment code is produced until deployed in production. Let’s discuss some pitfalls based on personal research as well as some solutions to ensure peace of mind.

Philippe brings more than 20+ years of experience in security. Being a pioneer in firewall, reverse proxy, and load-balancing, Philippe specialized in web application security with a focus on penetration testing and web application firewalling. Today, Philippe contributes mostly by writing blog posts, talking at meetups as well as co-organizing a renowned security conference. Philippe is a cloud solution engineer at Fortinet.

Session 2: "Constellation - The first always encrypted Kubernetes" by Moritz Eckert (Edgeless Systems)
Confidential computing allows one to keep workloads encrypted and isolated in memory during processing. Constellation is an open-source K8s distro/engine that applies the confidential-computing concept to entire K8s clusters. In this talk, Moritz will introduce confidential computing, discuss the motivation behind Constellation, give an overview of its architecture, and show a live demo.

Moritz Eckert is a passionate cybersecurity expert. He was a software security researcher at EURECOM and UC Santa Barbara. He joined Edgeless Systems in 2020, where he now leads product development. Moritz has presented at top-tier cybersecurity conferences, including Usenix Security Symposium and RSA Conference.

Session 1: "Spawn – the Actor Mesh" by Marcel Lanz (Netcetera)

Serverless runtimes are often hidden in cloud providers' offerings and exposed solely by their programming API and deployment procedures. In this talk, we'll explore an open-source Serverless runtime built for the cloud and on-premises, running on the BEAM with a polyglot programming model (Go, Javascript, Java, Rust, ...) to build general-purpose applications. We'll see how the BEAM and OTP are an ideal fit to build a Serverless runtime and to build applications in a cloud-native way. After an introduction to Serverless and a polyglot programming model, we'll present the open-source project at eigr.io, where we implemented the core of our runtime based on Erlang/OTP and written in Elixir.

Marcel Lanz is a Senior Software Architect at Netcetera. At heart, he is an engineer and generally curious about how things work. He has worked professionally for over 20 years in different fields like embedded- and realtime-systems and with enterprise systems in healthcare, insurance, and fintech industries. Marcel enjoys time with his family when he is not exploring all things Go, Erlang and Serverless.

Session 2: By VMware
(More details soon)

Session 3: "Infrastructure as Code for Kubernetes Applications using cdk8s" by Malte Reimann and Jun Zhang (AWS)

How do you define your Kubernetes applications? Do you write lines of YAML or do you maintain many custom CLI scripts? Why not use the programming language you are writing your application in, to also define your application running on Kubernetes? In this session we are going to use the open source ckd8s project to code more and configure less when defining our Kubernetes applications.

Malte Reimann and Jun Zhang are Solutions Architects at Amazon Web Services (AWS) Zurich. Malte is a trusted advisor to small and medium sized businesses in Switzerland, and has a background in computer science with research in software engineering and mixed reality. Outside of work, he enjoys exploring the Alps on a mountain bike or with hiking boots. Jun helps Swiss customers identify opportunities as well as their risks, and architect cloud-based solutions to achieve their business potential. He has the passion for sustainability and strives for solving current environmental challenges with technology for a better future. He is also a huge tennis fan, who enjoys playing board games a lot.
