Overcoming Data-Tier Challenges on Kubernetes and Cloud-Native Deployments hosted by DataStax (Complimentary Registration Required)
Many teams building highly scalable, cloud-native applications, have struggled with finding a data solution that can keep pace with the needs of their application. Often this has meant a choice between using a managed database, or taking on the task of deploying and managing a database on Kubernetes. Apache Cassandra™ is a powerful database used in many applications that require resilience and scalability, but has traditionally been challenging to deploy and manage effectively. Now the Kubernetes and Cassandra communities have come together in a great collaboration called K8ssandra, a production-ready platform that makes it easy to run Cassandra™ on Kubernetes. In this workshop, you will learn the challenges of managing a data tier in Kubernetes and how to overcome them using K8ssandra.

With a primarily hands-on approach, we will cover introductory and in-depth topics that include:
  • Creating a K8ssandra release using Helm
  • Monitoring database performance through metrics and alerts
  • Breaking nodes in the database cluster on purpose to observe self-healing
  • Scaling the database resources up and down
  • Deploying applications on top of the database using CQL and REST APIs
  • Backing up and restoring data
  • Multi region deployment (time and resources permitting)
Attendance at this workshop is free. If you’d like to attend any other sessions that KubeCon has to offer, you will need to register for the conference here!

How to Register: Pre-registration is required. To register for Overcoming Data-Tier Challenges on Kubernetes and Cloud-Native Deployments, add it on during your KubeCon + CloudNativeCon registration.

Virtual: Rescuing Messy Schema Migrations with SchemaHero - Treva Williams, Replicated
Are your schema migrations threatened by a pack of super-villains like The Imperative Syntaxer, Dr. Decoupled Deployments, and Mr. McMessy Migration-pants? If so, have no fear and join this introductory session to a new CNCF Sandbox Project, SchemaHero! You’ll learn about our quest of making it possible to tightly couple database changes with application updates by using one of the superpowers we all know from Kubernetes: declarative state operators. Our rag-tag band of do-gooders believes it should be simple to deploy an application update that relies on a database change without building an orchestrated deployment process. All of this should be possible without requiring an intimate knowledge of the schema-migration language required by the specific version of the database that’s running. Kubernetes has proved that declarative desired state works, and SchemaHero is applying this solution to making database schema migrations easier and more reliable.

Air Gap Lab: Delivering Kubernetes Applications to Air Gapped Environments hosted by Replicated (Complimentary Registration Required)
Air gapped environments are enjoying increased popularity with the Enterprise in cloud, on-prem, and hybrid environments. While more secure, losing the convenience of internet connectivity means that your applications are potentially inaccessible to your air gapped clients - or are they?

Fortunately, there are innovative and timely open source tools available to streamline the process of getting your customers up and running as quickly as possible. These open source tools can do everything from launching your application to even deploying an embedded Kubernetes cluster specific to your needs.

In this lab, you will receive a hands-on lesson on how to successfully build custom Kubernetes clusters, deploy and manage applications, and investigate and resolve issues in highly secured Kubernetes environments.

What you will do:
  • Access and verify a single-node air gap setup via a bastion server -Learn how to use KOTS (Kubernetes-Off-The-Shelf) to install in an air gap environment 
  • Create an SSH tunnel to configure an air gap instance -Perform an upgrade of an application in an air gap environment
  • Use the kubectl support-bundle CLI in an air gap environment

Who this is for: This lab is for anyone who builds/maintains KOTS applications (see note below) Full Stack / DevOps / Product Engineers

Pre-requisites: Basic working knowledge of Kubernetes

Outcomes:
  • You will be ready to deliver a KOTS application into an air gap environment 
  • You will build confidence in performing upgrades and troubleshooting in air gap environments

Note -- a more minimal air gap lab is in the works for non-dev teams to learn the user-side installation workflow without needing to understand the building/packaging of new air gap versions. Until that is made available, this lab is also appropriate for:
  • Implementation / Field Engineers 
  • Support Engineers

How to Register: In-person registration is sold out (waitlist available). To register for Air Gap Lab virtual only, add it on during your KubeCon + CloudNativeCon registration.

Instantly Debug your Kubernetes Clusters with Pixie hosted by New Relic (Complimentary Registration Required)
Kubernetes environments are inherently dynamic with teams adding 15+ services to an average K8s cluster every week. Those new services either become 15+ apps that must be instrumented with language agents every week or the absence of instrumentation results in observability blindspots.
Pixie is an open source observability platform for Kubernetes that automatically provides observability for every new service in seconds without instrumentation. By getting telemetry data at the kernel level, Pixie is a language-agnostic solution that helps developers debug faster through code-level insights and removes the observability gaps that naturally emerge in Kubernetes environments.
Join us for a hands-on workshop where we will instrument a cloud-native application with Pixie and use out-of-the-box scripts to identify and root-cause bottlenecks and errors. In 2 hours, you will learn to:
  • Install and Deploy Pixie
  • Visualize Kubernetes clusters and application performance data
  • Use Continuous Profiling to investigate Infrastructure anomalies
  • Analyze Slow DB Queries Dynamic Logging (without log.withfield())
  • AND MORE!

Advanced Kubernetes Troubleshooting Made Simple with Open Source Tools hosted by Replicated (Complimentary Registration Required)
As engineers, operators, and administrators, we grapple with vexing and expensive problems. Support bottlenecks caused by technical language barriers, differing time zones, incomplete information, and other typically minor issues can extend the time between identifying an issue and resolving it by hours or even days. Fortunately, a fully open source toolset available called Troubleshoot can drastically reduce the time between diagnosis and solution. This lightweight, fully customizable Kubernetes plugin consists of two parts - preflight and support-bundle. Troubleshoot is capable of collecting, analyzing, and packaging the data needed to get and keep your cluster operating at peak functionality. If it sounds too good to be true, just wait - it gets even better.
Join our live lab to see tiny-yet-mighty troubleshoot.sh in action in a live demo, plus the opportunity to learn how to customize troubleshoot components to fit your needs.

Some background info:
  • Attendees will be provided with instructions on how to log into a Linux Host running a Kubernetes Application. 
  • Attendees will also be provided with step-by-step instructions on how to find and troubleshoot an issue. 
  • They will try to login/open a webpage 
  • The page will error out/show an error message 
  • The attendee will then follow the instructions to fix the issue. (This may involve running some kubectl commands) 
  • Once the issue is fixed, the web page should load and allow the participant to sign up for the ring. 
The attendee will require some Kubernetes knowledge and a laptop that they can use to SSH into a LINUX VM running in GCP.

How to Register: In-person registration is sold out (waitlist available). To register for Advanced Kubernetes Troubleshooting Made Simple with Open Source Tools virtual only, add it on during your KubeCon + CloudNativeCon registration.

Instantly Debug your Kubernetes Clusters with Pixie hosted by New Relic (Complimentary Registration Required)
Kubernetes environments are inherently dynamic with teams adding 15+ services to an average K8s cluster every week. Those new services either become 15+ apps that must be instrumented with language agents every week or the absence of instrumentation results in observability blindspots.
Pixie is an open source observability platform for Kubernetes that automatically provides observability for every new service in seconds without instrumentation. By getting telemetry data at the kernel level, Pixie is a language-agnostic solution that helps developers debug faster through code-level insights and removes the observability gaps that naturally emerge in Kubernetes environments.
Join us for a hands-on workshop where we will instrument a cloud-native application with Pixie and use out-of-the-box scripts to identify and root-cause bottlenecks and errors. In 2 hours, you will learn to:
  • Install and Deploy Pixie
  • Visualize Kubernetes clusters and application performance data
  • Use Continuous Profiling to investigate Infrastructure anomalies
  • Analyze Slow DB Queries Dynamic Logging (without log.withfield())
  • AND MORE!
How to Register: Pre-registration is required. To register for Instantly Debug your Kubernetes Clusters Using Pixie, add it on during your KubeCon + CloudNativeCon registration.

Bug Bash, presented by CNCF + Sonatype
Bug Bash brings developers together in a live, asynchronous, and cooperative model to find and fix as many bugs as possible on open source projects. The Bash takes place over a short timeframe, driving interest and engagement within the developer community. Each project interested in participating has a team of community members working through a list of bugs curated by the Bug Bash team and OS project maintainers ahead of the Bash. To date, we’ve had 30+ developers find and fix over 700 bugs on CNCF projects, and we are expanding this to a global scale, focusing specifically on the Kubernetes ecosystem in the coming months. To learn more about how these Bashes are making the Kubernetes projects you already use more secure, sign up as a maintainer or contributor to the hybrid digital/live event at KubeCon North America!

How NOT to Start with Kubernetes - Christian Heckelmann, Dynatrace
To k8s or not? THAT should be the first question you answer before considering moving your workloads to k8s. Granted – in many cases - Kubernetes is going to be the right choice but don’t just default to k8s because its hip or cool. When starting with Kubernetes you will run into many challenging situations or must make important decisions that will impact the way you will benefit or not benefit from k8s, that will decide whether you have sleepless nights or whether you can enjoy your evenings and weekends with friends and family! I, Christian Heckelmann, would have loved to know a lot more about Kubernetes networking, resource limits, the importance of training people upfront, providing templates, security, the CNCF landscape and more. 2 years ago, I started my journey as DevOps engineer setting up k8s 1.9 on bare metal. In this talk I recap my lessons learned in the hope that everyone that starts with k8s doesn’t start off in the wrong direction.

Back to the Drawing Board: Building Containers with SBoMs - Nisha Kumar, VMware
A Software Bill of Materials or SBoM is a list of software components that comprise a software artifact, be it firmware, OS, a VM, and yes, a container. We can generate an SBoM for container images post build using image scanners like Claire, Trivy, Tern, and Syft. This method is not foolproof, however, as they rely on metadata existing in the container filesystem (such as package manifests) in order to report on them. If a container goes through a multistage build or tools like Docker-slim to reduce the attack surface of the container, all that metadata is gone. How do we get more accurate and consistent SBoMs for containers? We generate them at container build time. This talk demonstrates how we can do that with tools like Tern, Buildah, and the OCI specification. We will get back to the basics of building containers, learn about the OCI specification, and make a container builder which can generate an SBoM at build time.

Manage More Clusters with Less Hassle, with Argo CD Application Sets - Jonathan West, Red Hat & Kshama Jain, Independent Contributor
Many organizations have discovered the advantages of using Argo CD and a GitOps workflow to manage their Kubernetes clusters, with Git repositories as the source of truth for defining the desired application state, and Argo CD responsible for keeping the cluster synchronized with those repositories. However, managing deployments of large numbers of applications/clusters with Argo CD requires complex custom scripting to keep those Applications in sync. The newly released Argo CD ApplicationSet controller aims to solve this problem, by working alongside Argo CD to automatically generate Application deployments using templates and parameterization: manage multiple Kubernetes clusters at once, deploy large numbers of applications from multiples respositories, and more. Best of all, the entire deployment is managed by only a single ApplicationSet Kubernetes custom resource, which means no more juggling of numerous Argo CD Application resources to target those multiple clusters/repos.

Customizing Kustomize with Client-Side Custom Resources - Katrina Verey, Apple & Jeff Regan, Google
Kustomize is a popular tool for declarative, template-free management of Kubernetes configuration. Under the hood, it works by defining a graph of Kubernetes resources and applying a pipeline of declaratively specified transformations to its nodes. A lesser known fact is that users aren't limited to the transformations that Kustomize comes with out of the box: it's extensible! The way Kustomize extensions work has evolved over time towards a model that closely resembles Custom Resources, but on the client side! In this talk, Katrina and Jeff will briefly review the history and future of Kustomize extensions, and then dive into practical applications. The talk will showcase how these CR-style extensions can address common yet idiosyncratic application needs, as well as how platform builders can leverage them to manage declarative configuration at scale. Attendees will leave with practical knowledge of what makes a good extension and how to use Kustomize’s kyaml tools to start building.

Hardening the Kubernetes Software Supply Chain Through Better Transparency - Adolfo García Veytia, uServers; Verónica López González, Digital Ocean; Nabarun Pal, VMware
Software supply chains are gaining increasingly complex nowadays, especially when it is about deploying cloud native environments securely. After refactoring the Kubernetes release process over the past years, SIG Release efforts have shifted towards three main areas of work. In this talk, Verónica, Nabarun, and Adolfo will cover all of them in-depth: * Starting with Kubernetes v1.22, every release includes an SPDX Bill of Materials describing the source code, binaries, and all published images. * Automatic verification of the integrity and consistency of release artifacts as part of the Kubernetes Release process. * Digital signing of released artifacts and signature verification of upstream images. In the final part of the presentation, the speakers will demonstrate some of the tools that SIG Release has created, which can be leveraged today by the community in other projects, too.

Case Study : Improving Resilience of Applications in Telco Environments - Uma Mukkara, ChaosNative & Samar Sidharth, Orange
Though Kubernetes acts as a common abstraction and as a platform to build other platforms or applications, challenges are unique to each environment or area of operations. Telcos operate at a larger scale compared to the other environments. In these environments, the challenges of moving the applications to cloud native include a plan on the reliability of the whole service right from the beginning to the state of operations. In this session, we discuss a case study from Orange, the telecommunications operator, where they have been using Litmus, Kubernetes and other CNCF technologies to build and scale their application development process all the way till shipping them. We discuss their resilience goals of the cloud native application, scale factor, original challenges, impediments, the approach and the actual design along with the learnings in this case study.

Kubernetes Supply Chain Security: The Software Factory - Andrew Martin, Control Plane
The original supply chain attack was described by Ken Thompson 35 years ago, in Reflections on Trusting Trust. As the SUNBURST attacks abuse the same implicit trust relationship between consumers and vendors today, we ask ourselves: does cloud native have the answer? Based on work from the US Air Force and DoD, we present a Kubernetes Software Factory approach that can defend against supply chain risks. But can we mitigate the risk entirely? What about consuming closed source and binary artefacts? Is there a silver bullet for this producer-consumer problem, that impacts supply chain relationships at all levels of industry and technology? In this talk we: - Showcase work to build a Kubernetes Software Factory with Tekton - Deep dive on signing and verification approaches to securely build software with in-toto, TUF, SPIFFE, SPIRE, and sigstore - Review lessons learned from the SUNBURST attacks - Detail future cloud native solutions to harden Kubernetes, builds, and infrastructure

Cloud-Agnostic Design for Fun and Profit - Alex Meijer & Anusha Iyer, Corsha, Inc.
There is now sufficient competition in the cloud computing space that all the major cloud providers are competing directly on pricing. Like any other market, there are significant opportunities for savings if an organization is willing to periodically switch to more competitive service providers. However, the engineering cost of a cloud provider migration typically negates those savings – but that doesn't have to be the case. This talk will cover a two-year journey spanning several cloud providers, and how to avoid vendor lock-in by making cloud agnostic design a first-class consideration. A case study will be provided on how embracing open source projects like Kubernetes, Terraform, and Helm permitted lightning-fast migration to and from cloud providers driven by economic incentives. The high level details of Corsha's Infrastructure-as-code strategy will be discussed, and how an early commitment to this approach has resulted in flexible and efficient cloud native app deployments.

Microservices Made Easy! - Donovan Brown & Jessica Deen, Microsoft
Have you made the jump to microservices only to discover the development experience is less than ideal? We get it, microservices can be HARD, but they don’t have to be. In this session we will help you simplify your developer interloop and boost your productivity. We will focus on Dapr and Bridge to Kubernetes, both open source, and geared towards simplifying your life as a developer. Dapr is a portable, event-driven runtime that makes it easy for any developer to build resilient, stateless, and stateful applications using any language, targeting any cloud or the edge. Bridge to Kubernetes uses Envoy to extend the Kubernetes perimeter to your development computer allowing you to write, test, and debug microservice code while connected to any Kubernetes cluster with the rest of your application or services. The bridge to microservices harmony can be messy, but a technical deep dive powered by the open-source tooling will have you looking Dapr in no time.

Capacity Scheduling for Elastic Resource Sharing in Kubernetes - Qingcan Wang, Alibaba & Yuan Chen, Apple
Kubernetes manages resources capacity across multi-tenants/users/namespaces by allocating a fixed amount of resource quotas to each namespace. It lacks sufficient support of dynamic resource sharing within and across teams and organizations and can result in low cluster utilization. It has become a roadblock to migrating applications from other cluster management platforms (e.g., YARN) to Kubernetes. Qingcan Wang from Alibaba and Yuan Chen from Apple will present their collaborative work on a Kubernetes enhancement to address the issue. Capacity scheduling offers a similar feature to YARN’s capacity scheduler and enables elastic resource sharing to improve cluster utilization in Kubernetes. It supports hierarchical resource groups with guaranteed and maximum resources for dynamic sharing of resources, from CPU, memory, disk to extended resources like GPU. It is seamlessly integrated into Kubernetes as plugins and has been used in large scale production clusters such as Alibaba Cloud.

Roll Out the Red Carpet for Production Kubernetes Clusters with a Kube-vip - Dan Finneran, Equinix
This talk begins with the presenter trying to improve upon a problem, namely deploying Kubernetes clusters on bare-metal and taking them into production. Often tasked by customers of making their on-premises clusters as "public cloud like" as possible, a lot of work went into writing solutions for these functionality gaps. Time and time again ensuring highly available access to clusters proved problematic to implement and implement into lifecycle patterns. Kube-vip slowly evolved from trying to fix that one use case into a widely used project that provides highly available Kubernetes clusters for various infrastructures. This talk will cover that journey, and show how from on-prem to the edge you can implement both highly available networking and extend that same functionality to "inside" the cluster with load balancer functionality for Kubernetes services with Kube-Vip.

Disaster Recovery of Stateful Applications in a Multi-Cluster Environment - Orit Wasserman & Shyamsundar Ranganathan, Red Hat
Have you ever wondered how to provide for disaster recovery of the state stored in your persistent volumes? What needs to happen to recover the workload on an alternate kubernetes cluster? How can the state be replicated and workloads recreated to use their replicated volumes? Our talk aims to elaborate on the various issues around recovering a workload and its state, in a multi-cluster and a multi region environment. We will demonstrate how replication capable storage systems, such as Ceph/Rook, instead of higher level tools, can be leveraged to provide disaster recovery of workloads across clusters. In addition this session will tease out features required in a multi-cluster control plane, to enable one-click disaster recovery solution for stateful workloads. Attendees will learn how to approach building disaster recovery solutions for their own clouds.

The Control Loop As An Application Development Framework - Nick Santos, Tilt
Kubernetes emerged as A Good Idea® in part because it gives you real-time, circular feedback: it's a control loop. Something watches, something reacts, equilibrium is maintained. In this talk we’ll discuss how this model is useful not only for orchestrating containers, but for many applications that handle real-time feedback loops. And thanks to Kubernetes, most of the scaffolding for it is already out there, ready to be used. As a use-case the speaker will talk about a development tool that reacts to source code and server status changes in real-time—a perfect match for a Kubernetes-style control loop. Adopting control loops led to a simpler, more modular app. It made the codebase easier to grasp for new developers, and the application as a whole more uniform and easy to extend. Plus, Kubernetes already has a rich ecosystem of tools for it. Lastly, the speaker will discuss other examples in which this model applies and whether this model makes sense for your own applications.

GitOps+Jenkins-CI With Declarative Everything - Kingdon Barrett, Weaveworks
Flux is the incubating CNCF tool that ushered GitOps on to the scene, and Jenkins is the OG build machinery name-to-know for large enterprises. Learn to deploy Jenkins declaratively with Flux's Helm Controller, how to build an app repo with Jenkins for deployment with Flux, how to test a Helm chart with Helm Test through Flux's Flagger, and how to deploy new releases automatically with Flux’s Image Automation Controller and Helm controller. Declarative delivery with Helm and Kustomize does not require Jenkins to have direct access to the cluster; Flux runs as an agent inside a cluster and uses a pull-based model for delivery of apps, treating the git repository as a single source of truth. Configuration as code runs under the hood of an all-declarative Jenkins infrastructure from end to end, a declarative Jenkinsfile, pipeline for branches and PRs to build and push images. Flux is first configured to pull new image builds into a cluster, then Porter modernizes our image build process!

Kubernetes on Edge: Bringing Your Code to Constrained Places - Steven Wong, VMware; Dejan Bosanac, Red Hat; Kilton Hopkins, Edgeworx
The main goal of IoT and edge solutions is to bring the workloads closer to sources of data, events and transactions. In many cases this means maintaining them in places with network and compute resource constraints. This session will cover technologies and best practices available to achieve this goal. We will start by covering some common challenges of creating IoT edge workloads. We’ll discuss pros and cons of using traditional containers versus upcoming technologies such as WebAssembly and WASI. Next, we’ll explore mechanisms of deploying built artifacts to the actual hardware, ranging from using different Kubernetes deployments, to simpler container runtimes and specialized Edge platforms. We’ll also focus on the evolving state of running WebAssembly workloads using Kubernetes and how to apply best practices to IoT and edge use cases. We’ll try to provide general guidance on how to choose the best approach for your project with a practical demo of one of the possible solutions.

K8snetlook – Root-Causing K8s Network Problems in an Automated Way - Arun Sriraman, VMware
More and more applications in production call Kubernetes their home. As the density of workloads on a Kubernetes cluster increases, so does the probability of downtime due to an underlying network issue. Some of the most common quibbles we hear from users: I can’t connect to my service A running within a K8s cluster or my service A seems to not be responding some % of the time. What do you do in these situations; Do you call the network gurus to help out, or kubectl delete the application and let Kubernetes self heal? What if you could identify an issue without needing to master the internals of K8s Networking? Arun will go over the various issues seen in the data plane, from dns, external traffic to internal app-to-app communication, and then discuss open source tools available to identify these issues in real time. We will look at k8snetlook - a simple open source tool that empowers every Kubenretes user; expert or otherwise, to root cause these issues in an automated way.

What Kind of CPU is it Anyways? Airbnb's Journey to Heterogeneous Clusters - David Morrison & Evan Sheng, Airbnb
In this talk we describe the technical and organizational hurdles Airbnb needed to overcome to migrate from running "homogeneous" Kubernetes clusters (i.e., clusters in which the majority of nodes are the same type) to "heterogeneous" clusters (i.e., clusters in which pods can be scheduled on a variety of different node types). Why did we make this change? Two reasons: cost and efficiency. Restructuring our clusters to support multiple different node types unlocked the ability to run workloads on the best machines for that workload, not just whatever our "default" happened to be. However, getting to this point wasn't easy. We'll describe in this presentation changes that were required in almost every part of our infrastructure, from changes to the ways we provision and scale clusters all the way down to changes in the API that our customer teams use. We'll also discuss the organizational hurdles that we had to address to build confidence in this new operating model.

Panel Discussion: OpenGitOps and the GitOps Working Group - Cornelia Davis, Amazon; Dan Garfield, Codefresh; Christian Hernandez, Red Hat; Chris Sanders, Microsoft; Leonardo Murillo, Weaveworks
Hundreds of organizations today are leveraging GitOps to successfully run and manage complex software systems, benefitting from its inherent modern development best practices as well as the tools that implement its responsive continuous deployments. GitOps adoption has seen dozens of companies innovate to offer solutions, and inspired several open source projects including Argo and Flux, both CNCF projects. With innovation accelerating and the number of stakeholders increasing, the time has come for a clear, vendor-neutral definition of GitOps. Inspired by increased interest and informed by years of working toward solutions, a CNCF GitOps Working Group was formed in 2020 to discover and standardize the definition of GitOps and its principles. This group will also focus on interoperability between tools, conformance, and certification. Join us for a panel discussion with members from several of the founding organizations to learn about GitOps, OpenGitOps, and future work.

Shh, It’s a Secret: Managing Your Secrets in a GitOps Way - Jake Wernette & Josh Kayani, IBM
How do you handle secrets? That is the first question that is asked whenever you are talking about GitOps. And it is a valid question! Do you put secrets directly in Git? Do you inject them in runtime? This is something that is trying to be answered across the community and in many different ways. Jake and his team at IBM looked at the landscape of GitOps specifically with Argo CD and could not find something that fit their needs. This talk will showcase how they were able to build and adopt argocd-vault-plugin and how it was able to simplify their secret management while allowing them to manage it in a GitOps way. Hopefully this talk will help you along in your GitOps journey and bridge the secrets gap that we are seeing so often in the community.

Trimaran: Real Load Aware Scheduling in Kubernetes - Abdul Qadeer, PayPal & Chen Wang, IBM
Kubernetes is a popular solution for container orchestration and cluster management. Cluster management creates opportunity to improve resource utilization which can provide an organization with cost savings. To achieve this, we can make the native Kubernetes scheduler aware of the gap between its declarative resource allocation model and actual node resource utilization. We can pack pods more efficiently in a lower number of nodes considering real load of nodes. Native scheduler on the other hand only considers pod requests and allocable resources on nodes with its default plugins. We introduced two plugins to the scheduler community - TargetLoadPacking and LoadVariationRiskBalancing under the Trimaran framework to address this problem with collaboration between PayPal and IBM. The plugins provide scheduling support for all pod QoS guarantees.

Implementation Challenges: From HPC to Containers in the Academy - Lukáš Hejtmánek & Viktória Spišaková, Masaryk University
Container computing does not have a lengthy history in the academic environment. Traditionally, HPC holds the first place because of high resource availability, direct multi-tenancy support, and researchers having legacy experience. This session will introduce efforts made at the CERIT-SC/Institute of Computer Science of Masaryk University to implement Kubernetes infrastructure and move scientific computing to containers. We will present challenges of multi-tenancy assurance, deploying applications under users, resource sharing, and building trust towards containerization among the research community. We will discuss several created solutions, present a couple of European open-source projects and demonstrate how containers help in the academic environment. Furthermore, we present other issues we fight and propose ideas on new features.

Automated, Distributed Systems Testing for Kubernetes Controllers - Lalith Suresh, VMware & Xudong Sun, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
The Kubernetes ecosystem has thousands of controller implementations for different applications and platform capabilities. A controller’s correctness is therefore critical, and yet, can be compromised by myriad factors, such as asynchrony in the overall distributed system, unexpected failures, networking issues, and controller restarts. This in turn can lead to severe safety violations, such as incorrectly deleting StatefulSets and PVCs. Controller-developers unfortunately lack automated testing tools to harden their code against these conditions. In this talk, Xudong Sun and Lalith Suresh will describe common bug patterns in Kubernetes controllers. They will also present an automated testing tool called Sieve, which systematically tests Kubernetes controllers to harden them against the aforementioned scenarios. Sieve has already discovered (and led to fixes for) several safety-critical bugs in popular Kubernetes controllers for Zookeeper, Cassandra, RabbitMQ, MongoDB, XtraDB, etc.

SIG Events: Using CloudEvents to Create an Interoperable CI/CD Ecosystem - Andrea Frittoli, IBM
With more organizations adopting a Cloud-Native architecture and microservices, continuous delivery has evolved from mere best practices to an indispensable tool to swiftly and reliably bring new features in front of customers. The CI/CD landscape is rich and diverse, with tools like Keptn, Flux and Argo that offer opinionated solutions to specific problems. Organizations rely on various ones to address their automation requirements, but they lack a way to consistently orchestrate, monitor and measure their overall workflow. There is a real need for interoperability and standardization in the CI/CD space: solving this problem is the mission of the Events Special Interest Group at the CD foundation. The speakers will present their work at the SIG in establishing a shared dictionary and set of CloudEvents, a “lingua franca” for tools to understand each other and collaborate to solve a wide range of scenarios. They will demonstrate using shared events to let existing tools work together.

Container Checkpoint/Restore at Scale for Fast Pod Startup Time - Ritesh Naik, MathWorks
Are you interested in a faster startup time for your container-based application? Are you also interested in pre-warming your container-based application for faster cold start performance? You can have your cake and eat it too!   In this talk, Ritesh Naik will talk about how MathWorks cloud infrastructure was able to achieve *both* of these seemingly contradictory goals, fast startup time and pre-warming, using Container Checkpoint/Restore. With several years of experiencing using this technique in production, Ritesh will share design considerations, lessons learned and best practices for supporting container checkpoint/restore non natively in Kubernetes. He will also share a vision for what native support for CRIU in Kubernetes can look like. If you are interested in improving system scalability and utilization, this session is for you!

Cloud Provider Extraction: What We’ve Done, Where We Are and What's Left! - Walter Fender, Google; Steven Wong, VMware; Nick Turner, Amazon
Cloud Provider code allows Kubernetes to run on top of different platforms. Originally, support for all variations was built directly into a K8s release. This brought bloat - a running cluster used only a subset of the code within the release. Also, any cloud specific bug fix or enhancement demanded a new full K8s release as a carrier. This will be a status report on removing the cloud provider code from the main Kubernetes repository. Significant early milestones were recently achieved: the API Server no longer needs the cloud provider library; SSHTunnels have been deleted. For each in-tree cloud provider, we will report on efforts, accomplishments, and roadmap for getting "out-of-tree". We’ll also discuss the plans to handle the speed bumps that are left - including interesting topics like multi-repo e2e testing and removing the cluster directory.

Why is Anyone Using Kubernetes Anyway? - Tasha Drew & Josephene Pynadath, VMware; Gaby Moreno Cesar, IBM; Carl J Pearson, UserZoom
Have you ever taken a step back and wondered, what is up with this whole Kubernetes thing? Why are people using it all over the place? Is it becase of Phippy and Captain Kube? The Docker whale being so cute and retro? Or is there something else going on? The team at SIG Usability had these questions too, and we have embarked on a two year user research study to find out what exactly is going on. Our goal is to make sure the upstream Kubernetes' community deeply understands the needs and goals of the users of Kubernetes, and how they are met and not met today. Join this talk for a deep dive into our study and data, and what we're learning about our users. Spoiler: getting started with Kubernetes is real hard, and we should fix our on-ramp.

Using SLOs for Continuous Performance Optimizations of Your K8s Workloads - Andreas Grabner, Dynatrace
Moving to k8s doesn’t prevent anyone from bad architectural decisions leading to performance degradations, scalability issues or violating your SLOs in production. In fact – building smaller services running in pods connected through service meshes are even more vulnerable to bad architectural or implementation choices. To avoid any bad deployments, the CNCF project Keptn provides automated SLO-based Performance Analysis as part of your CD process. Keptn automatically detects architectural and deployment changes that have a negative impact to performance and scalability. It uses SLOs (Service Level Objectives) to ensure your services always meet your objectives. The Keptn team has also put out SLO best practices to identify well known performance patterns that have been identified over the years analyzing hundreds of distributed software architectures deployed on k8s. Join this session and learn what these patterns are and how Keptn helps you prevent them from entering production.

My Container Image has 500 Vulnerabilities, Now What? - Matt Jarvis, Snyk
As security becomes a bigger concern in the world of containers and Kubernetes, using vulnerability scanning tooling in our workflows is becoming increasingly common. But many container images can show tens if not hundreds of vulnerabilities, particularly if they are built using upstream base images from public repositories. If your container has a huge amount of vulnerabilities, what do you do ? Many of us will reach information overload when faced with such a list, and struggle to work out what actions we should take. In this talk, we’ll look at how container images are constructed, understand how potential vulnerabilities can get into our images, and explore how we can prioritize and remediate the vulnerabilities we find.

Unraveling the Mystery of Versioning CRDs - Harsh Thakur, Civo
CRDs have given birth to a lot of projects by extending Kubernetes. As these projects grow, the definitions of the resource start to evolve and maybe completely change, thus requiring versioning of CRDs. Versioning of CRDs can be tough as the end users need to be provided with seamless upgrades, zero downtime and backwards compatibility. Have you asked yourself questions like: “Do I need a conversion webhook if I am just changing the validations?” , “How do I migrate the existing CRs to the new version?” .This talk aims to explain the CRD lifecycle and help users quickly catch up with the changes happening in the CRD ecosystem.

Putting Into Practice the Skills You've Learned Contributing to Kubernetes - Kiran Oliver, Camunda
Contributing to Kubernetes, learning how the community functions, and understanding the key pillars that make this large open source project, and its surrounding community a success may seem like a mystery. The secret is actually no secret at all: It’s about the people behind the project, working tirelessly and making things happen day in, and day out. It is a recurring challenge for many new open source developers to apply the skills they’ve learned when contributing to Kubernetes to the real world, particularly if they are new to the industry, changing careers, or are skilling up in their current role. This talk helps to bring clarity to the questions, “How can I truly use what I’ve learned contributing to Kubernetes to improve my career outlook long-term?” and “How can I use these skills to improve the communities, ecosystems, and other open source projects I’m a part of?”

McK8s: Container Orchestration in Kubernetes Multi-Clusters - Mulugeta Ayalew Tamiru, University of Rennes 1 / Elastisys AB
Today many companies deploy their workloads across multiple Kubernetes clusters in private and public cloud data centers or in emerging computing paradigms such as Fog Computing. Recent efforts in the community such as KubeFed address some of the multi-cluster deployment challenges. However, KubeFed currently offers only manual or fully load-balanced placement. Other challenges such as autoscaling and inter-cluster network routing are solved by other projects separately. In this context, we believe there is a need for a more integrated and autonomous approach for managing geo-distributed Kubernetes clusters at scale. In this talk, we will present mck8s -- an extension and partial replacement of KubeFed for geo-distributed computing environments which aims to bring placement, autoscaling, bursting, inter-cluster routing, and cluster provisioning into one package. We will also emphasize its usability and easy adoption by using manifest files very much similar to vanilla Kubernetes.

Postgres Extensions in Kubernetes - Álvaro Hernández, OnGres
Postgres Extensions are one of the most distinctive and appreciated features of Postgres. Acting like “plugins”, they allow you to extend Postgres functionality. From adding simple data types to turning the database into a sharded cluster with a distributed query planner and executor. Yet they are hard to use in a container environment like Kubernetes. Because container images are immutable! So you either pack all possible extensions in a fat container, which leads to substantial problems; or you load dynamically under demand. Join this talk to explore the extension ecosystem in Kubernetes Postgres Operators; and how to solve this problem by introducing a system for dynamically loading extensions into the containers, and cache them within the cluster to avoid excessive downloads. A new operator pattern, the “pod-local controller” will also be introduced, as the technological solution that powers dynamic extension loading.

Beyond Namespaces: Virtual Clusters are the Future of Multi-Tenancy - Lukas Gentele, Loft Labs
Multi-tenancy is a hot topic in the Kubernetes community. A lot of operators have started to think about lowering cost and consolidating workloads in large, multi-tenant clusters rather than creating 1000s of micro-managed, small clusters. Namespaces are a great way to separate tenants in shared clusters. But what if tenants need to install their own CRDs, run workloads across multiple namespaces or even require different versions of the Kubernetes API server? Virtual clusters are an exciting new approach that extends namespace-based multi-tenancy to address such advanced use cases. At its core, virtual clusters let you run Kubernetes clusters on top of other Kubernetes clusters by provisioning isolated Kubernetes control planes for each tenant (i.e. separate Kube API server, data store (etcd), controller manager etc). This talk will explain how virtual clusters work, show what implementations are available today, and demonstrate fascinating, real-world use cases for virtual clusters.

gRPC Proxyless Service Mesh with Security - Sanjay M Pujare, Google
gRPC has been a popular choice for building microservices based service mesh architectures especially after the recent introduction of service mesh features such as service discovery, load balancing, and observability which eliminated the need for sidecar proxies - like Envoy - in the service mesh. The introduction of these features in gRPC enabled a "proxyless service mesh". In this session we will talk about the addition of mTLS based transport security to the proxyless service mesh. We will describe the orchestration of security by the xDS control plane, the addition of a security plugin architecture to gRPC, and the implementation of some of those plugins to take advantage of security infrastructure in the Google Kubernetes Environment (GKE).

Kubernetes VMware User Group: Using GPUs with K8s on vSphere - Steven Wong & Myles Gray, VMware
An increasing number of applications and services can benefit from GPUs, yet costs and other constraints often prohibit installation in all compute hosts. “Landlocked” GPUs resources often lead to underutilized cycles and wasted spending. This session will describe how a pool of available GPU resources within a vSphere cluster can be shared across a broader number of Kubernetes cluster nodes to accelerate workloads like AI, deep learning and inference. This can provide full or partial GPU compute capacity at scale to Kubernetes workloads, even when these are running in pods on hosts without an installed GPU. The session will show an example based on running a TensorFlow workloads on Knative. The K8s VMware User Group shares best practices for hosting K8s on VMware infrastructure, and we will close the session with details on how you can participate in the group.

Stream vs. Batch: Leveraging M3 and Thanos for Real-Time Aggregation - Gibbs Cullen, Chronosphere
The debate over stream vs. batch processing has been ongoing for years. While batch processing is optimized for large volumes of data, stream processing allows for real-time analysis. With monitoring workflows aimed at minimizing time to detect incidents, having real-time insights is critical for maintaining reliable cloud-native applications. Monitoring business-critical applications can become difficult at scale. How do you continue processing large volumes of real time data while maintaining valuable insights? There are OSS metrics solutions designed to ingest high volumes of data, but they also need to efficiently aggregate metrics for viewing and analyzing these volumes in real time. This talk will explore how two popular OSS projects, M3 and Thanos, have approached the problem of real time aggregation. The audience will learn how stream and batch processing methodologies have been leveraged by the community to aggregate data in real time, and the tradeoffs of each approach.

Fine-Grained User Authorization for Kubernetes with OPA and LDAP - Cagri Cetin & Quentin Long, Yelp Inc.
Yelp recently migrated their container-orchestration system from Mesos to Kubernetes. However, existing Kubernetes authorization mechanisms were insufficient to implement least-privilege access control rules. Yelp needed to authorize its users to hundreds of services owned by hundreds of different teams. By leveraging the Open Policy Agent (OPA), Yelp has implemented an authorization system that allows defining fine-grained authorization rules: These can rely on service ownerships, resources’ or actions’ sensitivity levels. This talk covers Yelp’s journey to a fine-grained Kubernetes authorization using OPA and LDAP. It will discuss: - Shortcomings of existing Kubernetes authorization mechanisms - Design details of the new OPA-based system - Strategies for provisioning authorization rules at scale - Migration to the new system with zero downtime - Issues encountered along the way and lessons learned

Insights into Unsecured Kubernetes in the Wild - Jay Chen & Aviv Sasson, Palo Alto Networks
As much as the cloud-native community devoted to building a rock-solid platform, the weakest link has always been the users who inadvertently introduced insecure configurations. Jay and Aviv will share their findings of misconfigured Kubernetes clusters in the wild and malware campaign that exploited these misconfigurations. Their research found 2,100 unsecured Kubernetes clusters that consist of 5,300 nodes, 31,340 CPUs, and 75,270 pods on the internet. Many sensitive data leaked from these clusters, including access credentials, source code, and PII. The researchers will share how they architected their honeypot infrastructure to collect and monitor malicious activities targeting Kubernetes environments. The research also uncovered the first malware that exploited Kubelets to compromise Kubernetes. The malware used sophisticated tactics to evade detection, harvest credentials, move laterally, and perform cryptojacking operations in compromised clusters.

Know Your Enemy: Mapping Security Risks Using Threat Matrix for Kubernetes - Yossi Weizman & Ram Pliskin, Microsoft
In April, Microsoft released an updated version of the Threat Matrix for Kubernetes which was originally released in 2020. The Threat Matrix is a knowledge base for security threats that target Kubernetes. This matrix was the first attempt to systematically cover the attack landscape of Kubernetes. In this session, we will explain how defenders and SecOps engineers can use the matrix to protect their Kubernetes workloads. We will demonstrate how a real-world attack is mapped to the techniques in the matrix and how organizations can measure their coverage to the attack using the matrix. Inspired by the Threat Matrix for Kubernetes, MITRE expanded their ATT&CK framework to include also containers. In the session, we will examine the differences between the Threat Matrix and MITRE ATT&CK and explain how users can leverage both matrices to gain a better security visibility for their environments.

How to put a Database in Kubernetes - Jeffrey Carpenter, DataStax
The idea of running a stateful workload in Kubernetes can be intimidating, especially if you haven’t done it before. How do you deploy a database? Where is the actual storage? How is the storage mapped to the database or application that uses it? In this talk, we’ll demystify the deployment of databases and stateful workloads in K8s by showing that databases are just applications composed of compute, network and storage. We can deploy them like any other Kubernetes application and take advantage of resources that K8s provides including Storage Classes, Persistent Volumes, Persistent Volume Claims, and Stateful Sets. We will demonstrate how to make it all work by deploying a relational database (MySQL) and a NoSQL database (Apache Cassandra).

A Safer Curl | Bash for the Cloud - Carolyn Van Slyck, Microsoft
Most of us have used curl to download a script and run it immediately. Using curl | bash provides instant gratification. We can quickly get up and running with an application without requiring a steep learning curve or a strong attention span. Unfortunately, the common advice is that this is not safe! But what if it was?

Let's walk through how we can work with people's natural tendencies, keep the one-liner and make it more secure. We will use Porter and Notary to transform an example cloud-native application deployment from a dicey bash script, executed with bash and hope, into a safer one-liner installation that was designed to be used in production.

You will learn:
  • Why curling a script to bash is insecure, and why bundles mitigate those risks.
  • How to reuse existing tools and scripts in a bundle, without starting over from scratch.
  • What a safer one-line user experience could look like.

A Vulnerable Tale About Burnout - Julia Simon, CloudOps
This vulnerable tale is a personal journey through the unpredictable world of depression and burnout. It could have been easily predicted because Julia was "doing it all". Yet it was totally unexpected because she assumed her mental health was strong and stable; she could handle anything. Until she couldn’t and everything became unbearable. She made the impossible and necessary decision to stop working in order to recover, setting out on what became four months of self-discovery. Julia will talk about what what led her to this state, what it looked like, and how she was able to get the necessary help to feel strong enough to not only go back to work, but to shift career paths all together as a hopeful and positive outcome that arose out of dark times. Julia will talk about key takeaways that allow her to maintain a healthier balance at work and in life.

AIoT Ops - Using Kubernetes and ML Ops to Build Edge ML Applications - Asheesh Goja, Cisco
Whether you are developing an IIoT application or an IoMT solution that requires closed-loop decisions, bringing machine intelligence closer to the edge offers significant advantages. Energy-efficient ML hardware for tensor operations is driving the move towards Edge ML and the emergence of a new domain of edge computing called AIoT or Artificial Intelligence of Things. This talk will propose a novel approach to build AIoT applications using Kubernetes. Using an illustrative reference architecture, the talk will explain emergent AIoT behaviors and architecture patterns. Such patterns can help in deciding what open source projects to choose for AIoT solutions. You will also see a demo simulating an industrial IoT setting where sensors measure conditions in real-time and feed them to an edge device. The device uses a TPU accelerator to apply logistic regression to predict future equipment breakdown. You will see how ML pipelines measure drift and re-train and re-deploy the model.

Flux's Roadmap to General Availability - Hidde Beydals & Michael Bridgen, Weaveworks
The past year has been an important one for Flux and GitOps. The team has built a new Flux made of multiple controllers that are now seeing production use. The project has matured and is on its way to General Availability. Flux v2's core is a set of precise API’s for controlling and delegating every element of a GitOps platform. A single Flux install can now work with many parts of multiple git repositories, and Flux is more usable and observable than ever. The project has first-class support for popular technologies like Kustomize, Helm, Prometheus, SOPS, GitHub, and GitLab, and it provides extension points in all areas to integrate with other technologies and platforms, much like Kubernetes itself. This session will consist of a cool 15 minute demo of common and novel Flux use-cases that show just much progress the community has made. Join in afterwards for a 20 minute discussion on the remaining roadmap items for the v2.0.0 GA release candidates.

Argo and Tekton: Pushing the Boundaries of the Possible on Kubernetes - Alex Collins, Intuit & Jason Hall, Red Hat
Kubernetes isn’t just a platform for running apps anymore. Increasingly, it’s also becoming a platform for platforms, some of which challenge the idea of what Kubernetes can and should be used for. Tekton and Argo are two such projects, there are more, and there will be many more to come. These projects run unconventional workloads which often have quite different needs to running vanilla deployments. They often need to manage large amounts of data, manage massive parallelism, and special lifecycle requirements, none of which Kubernetes provides by default. In this talk, you’ll hear from the technical leads on the Tekton and Argo projects about how they’ve pushed the boundaries of Kubernetes to provide this new functionality. You’ll hear how users have benefitted from this work, how you can apply these same techniques, and how we can further improve Kubernetes as a platform for this kind of workload.

Faster Container Image Distribution on a Variety of Tools with Lazy Pulling - Kohei Tokunaga, NTT Corporation & Tao Peng, Ant Financial
Pull is known as one of the time-consuming steps in the container lifecycle. One of the root causes is the current OCI Image Specification because it can't run containers before the entire image contents become locally available. In this session, Kohei and Tao introduce state-of-the-art OCI-alternative image formats discussed in the community for speeding up pulling images, especially putting the focus on eStargz and nydus. These formats enable "lazy pulling" that allows container runtime to startup a container without waiting for the entire image. Over the past year, lazy pulling has been available on more and more container-related tools including Kubernetes, containerd, CRI-O, Podman, BuildKit, etc. So they will show how widely these image formats can be used on these tools in daily activity. eStargz has been proposed to OCI Image Specification as an extension and nydus has so to the next version of that spec (a.k.a. OCIv2). The talk will also share the discussion status.

Real-Time Data Anonymization the Serverless Way - Yuval Lifshitz & Huamin Chen, Red Hat
How do you ensure privacy protection in the far-flung computing workloads that make up many Edge infrastructures? One way is to ensure that personal information is hidden, on the fly, without introducing lag. Seems like a tall order, but it can be done. This talk presents a Cloud Native Serverless architecture to ensure real time data anonymization, using KEDA and Rook. Specifically, we have extended Ceph to support AWS SQS compatible APIs and developed an external Scaler in KEDA to allow Serverless functions to query, pull, and anonymize objects. This architecture is lightweight, reliable, and scalable. More importantly, the queue trigger mechanism in this architecture does not require us to expose external endpoints to Serverless functions that could become additional attack surfaces. This talk will demo an open source Serverless workflow based on the above technologies. It uses object detection AI models to anonymize images that are produced by Edge workloads.

Please join this special lunch and program, sponsored by Trend Micro.

Global integration. New business models. Technology. Shifting demographics. Increasingly informed customers. According to research by IBM, these have been drivers of rapid change in our world—and this was prior to the pandemic which ramped ambiguity to levels never seen before. When faced with uncertainty, organizations and people become risk averse, reactionary, less open to additional change, and therefore less inclusive. Ironically, strong decision-making benefits from the opposite—more diversity and more inclusion. In this workshop, participants will explore this tension and learn specific practices to drive the inclusion needed for success in unpredictable times.

RSVP not required, however seating is limited.

A Tall Tale of GitOps - Prasanjit Singh, Starzplay
In 1962, in his book “Profiles of the Future: An Inquiry into the Limits of the Possible”, science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke formulated his famous Three Laws, of which the third law is the best-known and most widely cited: “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic”. This quote is the seed of the session "A Tall Tale of GitOps!" It is a 'Tall Tale' because it is nothing short of that! What GitOps can do is larger-than-life and the session will see it unfold.

We will also share a repository of "Awesome GitOps" resources that you can use for hands-on demonstration about how one can write code, build it, create infrastructure, deploy the application and monitor the application all from a git version control push! The talk is focussed at beginners and will introduce the concept of GitOps and explain the building blocks of the architecture with a fictional story analogy.

Measuring the Health of Your CNCF Project: Going Beyond Stars and Forks - Dawn Foster, VMware
You can brag about stars and forks, but these popularity measures don’t actually help you improve the health of your open source projects. A better approach is to look at some commonly used metrics as a starting point for learning about which parts of your project are doing well and identifying areas for improvement. The challenge is that there are many possible metrics, so the real value is in selecting the right metrics and interpreting them. Every CNCF project is a little different, and you’ll need to interpret your metrics in ways that make sense for your project. This talk will cover: * Finding data for some commonly used metrics, including responsiveness, contributor activity and risk, project velocity, inclusivity, and more * Things to think about when interpreting these metrics for your project * Best practices for measuring and improving project health The audience will walk away with practical advice for measuring and improving the health of their CNCF projects.

Serving Machine Learning Models at Scale Using KServe - Animesh Singh, IBM
KServe (previously known as KFServing) is a serverless open source solution to serve machine learning models. With machine learning becoming more widely adopted in organizations, the trend is to deploy larger numbers of models. Plus, there is an increasing need to serve models using GPUs. As GPUs are expensive, engineers are seeking ways to serve multiple models with one GPU. The KServe community designed a Multi-Model Serving solution to scale the number of models that can be served in a Kubernetes cluster. By sharing the serving container that is enabled to host multiple models, Multi-Model Serving addresses three limitations that the current ‘one model, one service’ paradigm encounters: 1) Compute resources (including the cost for public cloud), 2) Maximum number of pods, 3) Maximum number of IP addresses. 4) Maximum number of services This talk will present the design of Multi-Model Serving, describe how to use it to serve models for different frameworks, and share benchmark stats that demonstrate its scalability.

Deploying Unikernels in Production with Kubernetes - Alexander Jung, Lancaster University
In data center and cloud deployments, the virtual machine is the basic unit of isolation and Kubernetes has emerged as the de-facto standard for orchestration. This points to the container-in-a-vm model: the VM for isolation, and the container to seamlessly integrate with the orchestrator. But is this optimal for deployments where containers are not a requirements? Is it possible to use VMs for isolation, use Kubernetes and all of its wide array of features for orchestration, but without having to rely on containers? In this talk we will present KubeKraft, a novel runtime along with modifications to containerd that allow for running VMs with Kubernetes *natively*, without any container overhead. We will present KubeKraft's architecture, its integration with Kubernetes and will show performance results; for instance, when using a Unikraft NGINX unikernel (less than 2MBs in size) KubeKraft results in 2x the throughput of an official Docker NGINX image (42M image size).

Beyond Block Diagrams: Different Ways of Understanding K8s Architecture - Kim Schlesinger, DigitalOcean
Most introductory Kubernetes videos and blog posts use static block diagrams to illustrate the core components of Kubernetes and how they interact. These diagrams don’t convey the dynamic communication between the K8s control plane, nodes, and pods, and we owe it to ourselves and people new to the field more accurate and engaging ways of representing Kubernetes architecture. This talk will demonstrate a few different methods to visualize how Kubernetes components work together including a time-sequence diagram that models what happens when a user creates a pod using the Kubernetes command line tool, kubectl, and how to use Jaeger to see an http request move onto different nodes by traveling through a load balancer, to a service, and arriving at a specific pod. This talk is for people who are new to Kubernetes and want to understand how the system is designed, as well as experienced engineers who are curious about alternative ways of visualizing Kubernetes architecture.

Registries After Dark - Daniel Mangum, Upbound & Jon Johnson, Google
You know the registry as your most boring friend. You push and pull images, and it just works, but have you ever taken the time to really get to know it? What is the registry really like behind that unassuming OCI specification? What does it do when it’s not just distributing your images? Maybe it gets a little crazy on the weekend - maybe it has hidden talents you don’t know about. What would happen if this thankless hero went rogue? In this talk we will demonstrate unconventional registry implementations, including those that serve self-modifying and dynamically generated images. Along the way we’ll also take a look at how clients can utilize registries in interesting and unexpected ways, e.g. as a content-addressable key-value store or a general-purpose directed acyclic graph database. Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of what guarantees OCI images and registries provide, as well as how they can exploit the registry’s flexibility to benefit their own use cases.

Fluid - Build Data Orchestration in Kubernetes - Yang Che, Alibaba & Yuandong Xie, Tencent
In the cloud-native field, data-intensive tasks such as big data and AI will face many problems in the context of the separation of storage and computing architecture. For example, network IO bottlenecks lead to reduced computing efficiency, and the underlying storage system is under huge overhead pressure. On the other hand, the management of multi-source data is very complicated, which is a challenge for algorithm scientists. In this talk, we introduce an efficient and convenient data abstraction, which abstracts data from storage, provides data affinity scheduling, distributed cache engine acceleration, and multi-source data integration data lake through Fluid. In Alibaba Cloud and Tencent Cloud, a large number of Big data and AI workloads are accelerated through Fluid’s data scheduling.

Kubernetes and Checkpoint Restore - Adrian Reber, Red Hat
Over 6 years ago a ticket (#3949) was opened asking for Pod migration in Kubernetes and until now there is no support in Kubernetes to migrate a container. Container migration is based on checkpointing and restoring containers and checkpointing and restoring containers is one the main reasons Checkpoint/Restore in User-Space (CRIU) exists. Although container migration is always viewed as an outlier or corner case of containers, because containers are supposed to be stateless, CRIU continues to get better at container migration and even if containers are supposed to be stateless, CRIU still sees growing interest in its container migration features and especially the integration in container runtimes. This talk wants to present the multiple use cases for checkpointing and restoring containers. The talk wants to give a technical background how CRIU is enabling container runtimes to checkpoint and restore containers and the plan how to integrate checkpoint and restore into Kubernetes.

Testing Kubernetes Clusters - Building Confidence in Your Changes - Guy Templeton & Matteo Ruina, Skyscanner
Operating Kubernetes clusters involves a large number of components, each of which can impact the functionality of clusters. As cluster operators, building confidence in the changes being made is key to allowing frequent updates without compromising on reliability. Running the full Kubernetes conformance test suite every time is generally too slow, and doesn't always cover the functionality users of clusters care about. In this talk, you will learn how Skyscanner uses Kubernetes' existing test codebase along with Sonobuoy and Spinnaker to build a custom test suite. This allows cluster operators to build confidence in changes made to their clusters and their components, focussing on the functionality developers care about. This case study will enable you to make a start in developing your own tests for Kubernetes clusters, understanding the benefits this can bring, as well as the drawbacks you need to beware of.

Migrating to Service Mesh at Scale to Support Billions of $ Transactions - Imre Nagi & Giri Kuncoro, Gojek
Gopay, one of the biggest payments companies in South East Asia, processes transactions worth billions of dollars, with peak scale of more than 15000 financial transactions per minute. Gopay has heavily adopted Kubernetes to run its hundreds of microservices and has very recently migrated to a service mesh based architecture. As we grow, our infrastructure was becoming more complex and fragmented, our engineers less productive. Instead of writing code, teams were constantly interrupted by migration requests and spending more time looking for the right information just to get started. "Why do I need to migrate to newer helm chart again, I just upgraded it!" "This service isn’t responding, who owns it?" This talk will guide you how we fulfilled those challenges and fasten service mesh adoption through a developer friendly platform. The platform simplifies end-to-end software development with an abstraction layer that sits on top of our infrastructure and developer tooling.

We’ll take an honest look at the contributor experience for a sustainable open source project. We apply the form/storm/norm/perform model as a way to approach growth. With stories, examples, & our own experiences, we share practical guidance on how you can set your open source contributor community on a course to not just survive, but thrive. Part 1: Form — Tackling first tasks together *Code *Website *Messaging *Docs Part 2: Storm — Gaining trust & sorting things out *Resolving disputes *Code of Conduct *Governance *Coding standards *Contributors are not employees/coworkers Part 3: Norm — Sharing responsibility *Issue management *Delegating work *Standardizing communication channels Part 4: Perform — Optimizing for the long haul *Retaining maintainers *Maintainer turnover & recruiting *Emeritus status

A K8s-Based Workload Allocation Optimizer for Minimizing Power Consumption - Ying-Feng Hsu, Osaka University
Many K8s extensions have been focused on large scale container computation. But, how to strike a balance between energy efficiency and service performance for container operations due to the continuous growth of IoT devices and edge computing systems? The current K8s does not provide container orchestration from the perspective of data center power reduction. This talk presents a Workload Allocation Optimizer (WAO) based on the K8s architecture. WAO uses ML to predict the power increasing of workloads and introduces a scoring plugin to the K8s scheduler framework for Node selection. WAO-load balancer enables Pods to Nodes assignment with optimal power consumption. This talk gives you details on how power saving can be realized for cloud-edge computing systems. Instead of using the virtual environment, we demonstrate the proposed WAO in a real edge data center with 200+ servers and show you how WAO manipulates the tradeoff between service performance and data center power saving.

Cloud Native Superpowers with eBPF - Liz Rice, Isovalent
Netflix’s Brendan Gregg coined the term “Superpowers for Linux” to describe eBPF back in 2016. Today there are a whole crop of eBPF-based tools for cloud native observability, networking and security, such as Falco, Pixie and Cilium. What makes eBPF such a powerful platform for building this new generation of tools? This talk uses live-coding & demos from across the cloud native ecosystem to illustrate how eBPF programs can - Collect performance & behavioral insights from across an entire system - Relate observed data to Kubernetes objects - Reliably instrument workloads without making any changes to apps or configurations But eBPF isn't a magic wand. We’ll look at its limitations and potential misconceptions that are emerging from the use of this powerful new technology. Even if you’re not a Linux kernel aficionado you’ll leave this talk with an understanding of how eBPF enables high-performance tools that help you manage, debug and secure applications in the cloud.

Untangling the Multi-Cloud Identity and Access Problem With SPIFFE Tornjak - Brandon Lum & Mariusz Sabath, IBM
When an organization moves to a multi-cloud environment, one of the first questions a developer will ask is “How do I access my S3 bucket in AWS from my GCP cluster?” (or any other permutations thereof cloud services/providers). This is an unsurprising request. However, the solutions to these problems today are surprisingly inadequate, especially when security and compliance are considered. This problem stems from cloud providers/services each having their own notion of workload identity and schema, which makes federation difficult. This talk proposes a shift in the perspective of workload identity from being “platform specific” to “organization wide” using SPIFFE/SPIRE and the new SPIFFE Tornjak project to provide a consistent and secure organization-wide management plane for workload identity and access across multiple clouds. After all, user identities are managed on the organization level (e.g. LDAP, etc.), why should our handling of workload identities be any different?

Clusterless - Utilizing a Cluster of Clusters Seamlessly - Fei Guo, Alibaba & Chris Hein, Apple
Multi-cluster support in Kubernetes becomes more and more important for application efficiency, better resource utilization and breaking the geographic boundary. While existing open source projects like Karmada, Tensile-Kube, Liqo, Admiralty, and more have addressed challenges in multi-cluster management such as configuration, lifecycle management, they either introduce new APIs/management workflows or have scalability limitations in terms of scheduling throughput. In this talk, a new Clusterless design is introduced to reduce the management burden of multi-cluster users. Basically, multiple clusters are abstracted as Pod resource providers, connecting to a management cluster which is exposed to the users. There are no new APIs introduced hence the consistent user experiences are preserved. The Pod dispatching is done by a highly efficient two-level scheduling algorithm which can achieve O(n) scheduling throughput, where n is the number of managed clusters.

Function to Container - Building a FaaS Experience - Evan Anderson, VMware
Function as a Service (FaaS) is a hot topic in serverless and cloud computing at the moment, and there are a variety of open-source and CNCF projects which provide some level of serverless capability. Many of these open-source serverless solutions actually operate at the level of the container abstraction, which makes them a powerful bridge for traditional application models, but sacrifices the simplicity of the "functions" approach. Function buildpacks aim to provide this developer simplicity by injecting both a main method and invocation glue such as an HTTP server into the application code before building a container image. Unlike traditional buildpacks which aim to package a complete application with specific protocol bindings specified by the developer, function buildpacks rely on inversion of control to adapt business logic (in the form of a CloudEvents-processing function) to the protocol needs of the application.

The Hitchhikers Guide to Container Security - Tunde Olu-Isa, Oteemo & Jed Salazar, Isovalent
You’ve seen the Kubernetes security announcements: CAP_NET_RAW rogue advertisements, runc breakout, hostNetwork hijack.. oh my! It seems that the best you can do is keep up with patching, but often these vulnerabilities take advantage of overly permissive Pods. In this talk, we’ll introduce the riskiest privileges that Pods can request, what allowing those privileges means for your cluster, and how to create security policy to protect your cluster and its users. If you’ve ever wondered, “what does enabling privileged actually mean?”, hitch a ride on a whirlwind and fun guide about the basics of Pod security and how you can easily configure security policy to keep Kubernetes safe. Any level of experience can benefit from learning about the riskiest privileges Pods can request and reducing the threats in your environment by running your workloads safely.

How We Built a Cloud On K3s: The Learnings Of Growing Up Fast - Alex Jones & Anaïs Urlichs, Civo
K3s has radically altered the way we think about interacting with Kubernetes by reducing operational knowledge to an API. This promotes a highly compelling experience through its simplicity and speed. At Civo, we have spent the past two years building an ethical cloud computing company around this technology in collaboration with the open-source community. But the journey has been hard... Running hundreds of micro-clusters has had a steep learning curve. Observability, production support and reliability have been dramatically scaled and tested as services have become popular. We have found nuances in K3s, changes within the hardware requirements and had to rebuild server racks. This talk will illustrate our journey of making clusters resilient within a multi-tenant environment and how company culture had to scale with the tech and community to support it.

Conformance Testing the Kubernetes API: Tooling that Makes the Difference - Stephen Heywood & Caleb Woodbine, ii.nz
The Certified Kubernetes Conformance Program enables organizations to have confidence that their workloads will interoperate from one installation of Kubernetes to the next. In 2018, to ensure that organization can have the assurance that their workloads can move between vendors the CNCF turned the spotlight on improving the conformance test coverage of the Kubernetes API. This effort has brought us from ~20% of endpoints conformance tested in 1.15 to over 75% by 1.22. Most of the success can be attributed to the tooling developed to streamline the process of locating new endpoints to test before creating a PR to the Kubernetes repo. The tooling helps with identifying the current gaps in conformance, exploring endpoints, writing tests and verifying the test results. In this presentation Stephen will walk us through the tooling that will help us test the remaining 25% of the Kubernetes API.

Keeping Up with the CVEs: How to Find a Needle in a Haystack? - Pushkar Joglekar, VMware
An end user team bought a new product that ships as a set of container images. Their CISO requests a scan of the images before going live. The internal scan, to everyone’s surprise results in 314159 vulnerabilities. The CISO is furious & rejects any claims that the scanner is faulty, since it worked fine for VM images. After multiple back and forth exchanges with the product’s vendor, the vast majority of the detected vulnerabilities are false positives / do not have a fix / are not in the code execution path. Everyone breathes a sigh of relief until a few weeks later, the same thing happens for another product & the story repeats itself. It does not have to be this way! In this talk using the Kubernetes images as an example we will unravel how vulnerability scanners work, their blind spots and discuss how to implement a practical approach that allows end users to assess product’s security not by the raw vulnerability numbers & severity but by the risk it poses to their environment.
