Swiss Security specialist Eb-qual SA will give their insights on Cloud Security, using the next generation of Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB). There be a live demo of one such product by BitGlass https://www.bitglass.com

At this and future meetings, we also will talk about traditional enterprise security architectures and standards, modern Cloud Security best practises, and see how the benefits of automation can be used to make Cloud infrastructure secure by design.
We will also look at;
Cloud Security for StartUps
The venue is confirmed, and thanks to David and Bautista at Impact Hub Lausanne for booking the room for the group.
Our next meetup is organised in collaboration with the Swiss Chapter of the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) http://cloudsecurityalliance.ch
This training and networking workshop is for small to medium-sized businesses in Switzerland, that are currently NOT using Cloud Computing.
Learn how to get the Benefits of Cloud, without putting your Security or Data at Risk.
Learn EVERYTHING You Need To Know to SAFELY get started with Cloud in your Business. At this Live Training we will cover;
* Cloud Infrastructure like Microsoft Azure
* Security & Privacy in a Public Cloud
* SaaS Applications and how they have changed the way we work
* What Office 365 can do for your business
The event is FREE, but you MUST register at the official registration page https://go.mullins.ch/pl/24400 in order to receive your freebies.
Cloud Experiences Night
Join Swisscom and the Cloud Foundry User Group Romandie.
Joins us at Swisscom Digital Lab to participate in Stéphane’s & Tobi’s talks about some seriously hot platforms at the moment: OpenStack, Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry.
**Infrastructure as code with Terraform** by Stéphane Cusin
Every major platform, like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure,Google Compute Engine (GCE) or OpenStack offers dozens of APIs to control the infrastructure, such as compute (virtualized or bare metal), storage, networking, and networking services (e.g. firewalls). We will discuss the benefit of provisioning the infrastructure written as code without using any GUI. This talk will feature a live demonstration of installing from the scratch Kubernetes cluster on OpenStack with Terraform.
**Containers: From Laptop to Production** by Tobi Fuhrimann
Running containers on your laptop is easy. Getting these same apps into production and providing them as a resilient service is hard. We'll look into how to make your apps cloud native and production proof pieces of software and how to run them in a modern cloud-based container environment like Kubernetes or Cloud Foundry.
// About the speakers //
Stéphane, Technical Lead at Pictet, is a Java programmer and architect with more than 20 years of experience. He has mainly worked in the banking sector around Geneve. His main interest is solving problems with as much automation as possible.
Tobi is Container Evangelist and Application Engineer at Swisscom. His main interests are cloud computing, web development and UI/UX design. Combined with a broad skill set, this is the perfect foundation to work as an engineer at Swisscom Cloud and discover new things about today's clouds every day.

After the IaaS and PaaS service models, containers as a vehicle to deploy applications in the cloud are gaining more and more traction. Two presentations will shed light on two families of tools that manage and orchestrate containers in production. There will be a hands-on part in each talk, so bring along your computer.
First Jonathan Ballet from Edge Laboratories will give an overview of the suite of Open Source tools from HashiCorp: Terraform for deployment of cloud resources, Consul for storing configuration information and service discovery, and Nomad for managing and scheduling containers in clusters. These tools are not tied to a particular cloud provider and support deployment across multiple providers. Also you can use them with your own custom solutions, you are not forced to "buy the whole package". Jonathan will demo the tools and you will be able to have a go at deploying applications within this new infrastructure.
And second Marcel Graf from the University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland will present Kubernetes and its ecosystem. Launched as Open Source project by Google based on many years of experience with containers, it has attracted many contributors. Kubernetes manages and orchestrates containers. Related tools are Kops for creating and managing Kubernetes clusters on IaaS clouds and Minikube to create a one-node cluster on a developer machine. Marcel will talk about Kubernetes Pods, Services, ReplicaSets and Deployments and give a demo. You will be able to play with Kubernetes on a cluster we provide.
In this session we will look at traditional Web Hosting, and why it makes sense to move your hosting to the cloud.
If you are not an experienced Linux system administrator, implementing your first project in the Cloud may seem a big challenge, but during this presentation you will see how easy it is to implement and manage Virtual Private Servers (VPS) in public Cloud infrastructure.
There will be demo's of LAMP stack and Wordpress installations on leading Cloud platforms using various different scenarios and providers.
We will also look at two different methods to manage the installation of your VPS and application stack using only a web browser.
