Track: Kubernetes and Cloud Architectures

Location: Churchill, G flr.

Day of week: Wednesday

What are the cloud native trends to watch for in 2020? What might the Kubernetes landscape look like over the next 3 years?  

The cloud native movement, underpinned by technologies such as containers and Kubernetes, has enabled our ability to build and deploy far greater complex distributed systems that can dynamically scale to meet our business demands. As Kubernetes matures we are seeing the rapid rise of other architectural patterns in FaaS platforms and service mesh technologies. There’s also been a growing microservices movement to push beyond server side domains to leverage these same patterns on front-ends. What implications might this have for the fundamental design of Kubernetes and Faas?  

Come join us for real world examples of the challenges and successes of deploying into Kubernetes and leveraging FaaS platforms, and explore exciting advances in the containerisation and virtualisation sphere. This track will leave you with practical knowledge that can be applied within your organisation, and also thought provoking ruminations about where DevOps is headed over the next couple of years.

Lessons Learned from Reviewing 150 Infrastructures

Since April 2018 we've had the opportunity to perform a structured review of the architectural and operational choices of 150 platform teams. In this talk I'll explore some themes, talk about common mistakes, and give some advice on how to avoid these yourselves. The review tool we use is part of the AWS Well-Architected program, but this session is relevant whether or not you're an AWS user.
