We’ve picked out a few more of our highlights from KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2018, and if you want to check out the full playlist you can do so here.
Serverless is currently one of the hot topics out there in the market and Austen Collins (founder of serverless.com) starts with what is going on in the serverless world as it now and moving into serverless forecast. He then talks about cloud events cloudevents.io,a specification for describing event data in a common way. Next he demonstrates how to integrate cloud events with “Event Gateway” which is is an open-source communication fabric for serverless architectures. We’re then shown how to integrate cloud events with multi cloud providers via Event Gateway
Google has released a new OCI container runtime called gVisor, a lightweight container runtime sandbox used to provide secure isolation. Dawn Chen opened the talk with current container technology stack’s security concerns. Zhengyu He then focuses on the container isolation provided by VMs and explains in detail how gVisor runtime integrates with Docker and Kubernetes via Sandboxed Container (runc).
Observing and Troubleshooting your Microservices with Istio - Isaiah Snell-Feikema, IBM & Douglas Reid, Google
Istio was one of the hot topics at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2018 in Copenhagen and Douglas Reid starts his talk with a quick introduction to Istio before discussing it’s usefulness in observing and troubleshooting microservices. He then talks in detail how Istio can be used as debugging tool in your mesh. This is followed up by Isaiah Snell-Feikema, who dives into the implementation of Istio with a live demo. He shows us how Istio can be utilised to take on the heavy lifting in terms of debugging and troubleshooting your microservices.
In this video Andrew Jessup starts with an overview of SPIFFE (Secure Production Identity Framework For Everyone) then moves into how it can be used to build trust between modern distributed systems. He also introduces a project called SPIRE - a software system that exposes the SPIFFE Workload API - and shows how SPIRE can be integrated with the Kubernetes echo system.
