• Deploying to Kubernetes & VMware with Spinnaker

    VMware Promontory C

    Spinnaker is being chosen by a growing number of enterprises as the open source continuous deployment platform used to modernize their application deployments. Most of these enterprises deploy applications to multiple clouds. One of Spinnaker’s features is its ability to allow you to deploy applications to different clouds using best practices and proven deployment strategies. This talk will focus on one key integration within Spinnaker - it's ability to deploy to Kubernetes and specifically VMware's PKS portfolio. We will also cover ideas for expanding Spinnaker's capabilities to deploy to vSphere. ____________________________________________________________________________________ 6:00 pm: Food, Drink and Networking 6:30 pm: Welcome Introductions 6:45 pm Talk : "Deploying to Kubernetes & VMware with Spinnaker"- Brandon Powell (Armory) and Dan Illson (VMWare) 7:45PM: Q&A PLEASE NOTE: For those not located in Palo Alto and want to listen to the MeetUp, the event will be live streamed and recorded for later.
