Microservices on Kubernetes & Istio – Kubecon Announcements & Enterprise k8s

By: | November 30, 2017

Hot off the heels of KubeCon / Cloud Native Con (http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/kubecon-and-cloudnativecon-north-america) in Austin, TX, we’ll cover some of the newest announcements, hands-on material, and open source community projects.

Christopher will then cover making Kubernetes work in an enterprise environment, covering networking, policy, and security, powered by some of Tigera’s own KubeCon announcements.

We’ll wrap up with an overview and hands-on demos of both IBM’s hosted Kubernetes platform, the IBM Cloud Container Service (https://www.ibm.com/cloud/container-service), and the on-prem offering, IBM Cloud Private (https://www.ibm.com/cloud-computing/products/ibm-cloud-private/).

Christopher Liljenstolpe (@liljenstolpe (https://twitter.com/liljenstolpe)) is the CTO and co-founder of Tigera, Inc, and the original architect of Project Calico.  Before devoting his life to making cloud networking simple and secure, he gained plenty of practical experience in how it was not ever thus, designing and running several OpenStack clusters, and architecting some of the earliest SDN solutions at BigSwitch Networks.

He also ran architecture at two large carriers (Telstra – AS1221, and Cable & Wireless/iMCI – AS3561), spent time in Asia as the IP CTO for Alcatel, and ran networks in Antarctica (hint, bend radius becomes REALLY important at -50C). In his spare time he was foolish enough to do two stints as a working group co-chair in the IETF. Occasionally you can have the (mis-)fortune of hearing him speak at conferences and the like.
