Containers 102: Kubernetes: Constructing Cloud Native and Vendor-neutral platforms
Date: Friday, August 14th at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT
Kubernetes orchestrates the configuration, execution, and ongoing operation of containers across clusters of one to hundreds of nodes. Containers encapsulate both simple and complex applications, from microservices to monoliths. Kubernetes abstracts the infrastructure needed to execute, interconnect, manage, and monitor containers. Learn how Kubernetes accelerates platform development through unified networking, configuration, data, and operational control planes.
In this session, you will learn how Kubernetes:
- Promotes both Cloud Native and Vendor-neutral development and operations.
- Lowers the cost of adopting new technologies, experimentation, and platforming existing technologies, leveraging the combinatorial effect of a unified configuration, networking, and operational control plane.
- Provides opportunities for configuration and operational visibility across teams.
This session is Part Two of our free half-day Virtual Summit: Guide to Getting Started with Enterprise Containers. Sign up for this session and you are welcome to attend all three sessions! Others include:
9am PDT: Containers 101: What Are Containers and What Applications Are They Right (and Wrong) For?
11am PDT: Containers 103: How to Think about Costs with Containerized Apps
