  • AWS EKS Deployment Solutions with Autoscaling Spot Instances and Mixed Groups

    Save money and our planet! By this Kubernauts Online Meetup community members share their experience and knowledge about how they are running AWS EKS with support for Autoscaling of Spot Instances and mixed worker groups to reduce their K8s running costs by 70 - 90%. We'll cover great solutions like EKSCTL, Terraform AWS EKS, Pulumi, Rancher Terraform Provider and possibly other alternatives which leverage the Infrastructure as Code (IaC) paradigm and DevSecOps best practices. We Love To Learn! If you'd like to share your experience and knowledge in this area, we'd love to learn from you. Speakers: * Francesco Gualazzi * Alexander Giesa 1st Talk by Francesco Gualazzi Autoscaling Kubernetes for fun and profit by Francesco Gualazzi The story of a PoC made by an SRE team that helped the management drive a decision on adopting the Cloud using AWS (narrator: it was a great success). - Motivations / Goals / Challenges - Practices: IaC, security by design - Technologies involved - Infrastructure details - Application cloud readiness - Results of the PoC 2nd Talk by Alexander Giesa How we are building RDaaS with Auto Fleet Spotting on EKS - Tarraforming - Cost Reduction by 75% in a real world project - Addons (Monitoring and Altering, EFS and Elastic Cache Automation) - Live Demo - Build your own KaaS solution

  • OpenShift vs. Rancher vs. Kubernetes V

  • When your apps are Cloud Native, your Storage should be too

    Needs a location

    A deep dive into Cloud-Native Storage by Shantanu Deshpande Cloud-Native Storage Orchestrators for Kubernetes like Rook, OpenEBS, StorageOS and Portworx are on the rise, Shantanu will show us why and how to use them on your K8s Clusters and on Rancher Kubernetes Engine. About Shantanu Deshpande Shantanu is a Chaos Engineering lover and expert, a Cloud Native Researcher and Certified Kubernetes Administrator helping organisations to run Kubernetes in critical environments. He is the author of several blog posts and works currently on Rancher implementations and the TK8 development. Location: online via zoom: https://kubernauts.zoom.us/j/895329510 Timezone: CET

  • Okteto: Move your development environments to Kubernetes

    Needs a location

    Kubernetes has made it very easy to deploy applications to the cloud at a higher scale than ever. Projects like Knative, Istio, Envoy and Open Policy Agents enable us to run applications at a very high scale, with incredibly complex network and access rules. But at the same time, they make it really hard to develop and test locally. This pain goes away if we develop our cloud-native applications directly in the cluster. In this talk, Ramiro from Okteto will explain the concept of cloud-native development, the benefits and challenges of this approach, the different tools available for this and how we implement it at @Okteto. Bio: Ramiro Berrelleza is one of the founders of Okteto. He has spent most of his career (and his free time) building cloud services and developer tools. Before starting Okteto, Ramiro was an Architect at Atlassian and a Software Engineer at Microsoft Azure. Originally from Mexico, he currently lives in San Francisco.

  • Container Runtimes And Kubernetes

    Needs a location

    Problem: The Freedom of Choice Often we are lucky to have the freedom of choice, but this could become a chronic headache and turn to become a problem, at least if you've to deal with different container runtimes on different operating systems and different k8s distributions. By this online meetup Fahed Dorgaa sheds some light on Container Runtimes, the Container Runtime Interface, why to use a Container Runtime Interface, what is OCI, RUNC, RUNSC, CRI-O, Containerd, frakti, Kata, Docker, Podman, Buildah, gVisor, Skopeo, etc.. and talks about the relationship between Cri & Cni. By this talk Fahed will help us to get rid of a chronic k8s headache and choose the right container runtime solution for our daily work. Agenda What is a Container Runtime? What is a Container Runtime Interface? Why to use the Container Runtime Interface? What is the best Container Runtime solution? Cri & Cni About Fahed Dorgaa A passionate go-getter specialized in delivering technical solutions with a strong software engineering background and a recognized business acumen. I still enjoy the thrill of learning and am passionate about software architecture and buzzwords technologies. Everywhere!
