Infrastructure Design For Kubernetes

Kubernetes is all the rage, and there are a ton of tools to deploy it. There are installers, cloud managed setups, full distributions like PKS, etc. But there’s always the question - beyond the software aspect, what do I need to build and provide for a successful container orchestration environment? Host types? What about storage? Networking? Load balancing? Attendees of this session will walk away with and understanding of the considerations in choosing compute platforms to run containers, along with storage systems (what is CSI anyways?), networking and load balancing. Think of this as ‘K8S for infrastructure folks’

Tuesday, Apr 30, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM – Murano 3205

Kubernetes: Addressing The Real World Challenges

Abstract

Kubernetes is one of the fastest growing open source technologies, but real world production usage has yet to catch up with the hype. In this panel discussion we’ll examine what the role of Kubernetes should be as part of your Application Transformation strategy, explore some of the challenges to consider when deploying it in the real world and share best practices for how to overcome those challenges. You’ll leave this session armed with the practical knowledge you need to see through the Kubernetes hype and understand the limitations so you can safely deploy it in production.

Do You needs the bets solution on premises to run cloud native workloads? here’s the session for You:

How To Improve Scale, Sustainability, Security & Speed All While Driving Savings

Abstract

What is the economic cost of the delay in getting new features to production? Once the feature is in production do you have trouble handling increased load? Does the business experience down time? Do you know where you are vulnerable to attack? To effectively leverage the beauty of ZERO downtime on-premises, the key factor is to ensure all lower levels of infrastructure are up-to-date, secure and stable. In this session we will discuss a full-stack Cloud Native solution which brings the best of Dell Technologies in one.
