How to Make K8s Autoscale Work: Novice to Pro to VIP with Real Multi-Tier MicroServices
By: Meng Ding and Enlin Xu, April 9th, 2019
Assuring your Application performs to Service Level Objectives is the end game, and Kubernetes provides Horizontal Pod Autoscaling Policies that allow you to define a set of conditions for when Kubernetes will automatically scale your services to help manage to SLOs. Identifying the best values for these policies is not easy, with limited information on how to achieve results for real, complex applications. Policies that do not properly account for multiple factors will not only fail to assure performance, but could negatively impact other services. Effective policies need to consider how to choose the best KPIs that reflect SLOs and resources, how to use multiple metrics, how to determine the max number of replicas per service, and when does vertical work better than horizontal scaling.

Monitoring Microservice Applications Is About Visibility — And It Isn’t
By: Chris Farrell, May 22, 2018
Why Understanding Data (not just collecting it) is Necessary to Deliver High Performance Dynamic Applications. When new technology platforms appear, new application monitoring solutions also emerge to provide application and platform visibility. Dynamic containerized microservice applications are no different – monitoring performance first requires visibility, which is why it’s nice that open source standards like OpenTracing and Jaeger have appeared. Unfortunately, just collecting the tracing data is no longer enough. These new applications are so complex and dynamic that the most important aspect of monitoring is how pieces fit together, correlating information from multiple data sources. We’ll explore the pros and cons of different monitoring technologies, look at the challenges of monitoring new microservice applications, and dig into how to best use the vast monitoring data now available to deliver optimum application performance.
Solving Configuration, Security and Collaboration Challenges in the Container Pipeline: What We’ve Learned

We realized we have to change the way we think about pipelines, security, managing environments, and configuration to truly benefit from this move and keep the pipeline—and the clusters—in lockstep with code. In this webinar, we will share what we’ve learned so far, and some tooling we’ve developed to solve our problems—which are now open sourced.
Enhancing your Control over Kubernetes with Spinnaker and Continuous Delivery
By: Nick Chase, May 8, 2018
Developers have to deal with a huge number of tools that all have to work together in order for you to deliver software. By orchestrating resources such as containers and services, Kubernetes goes a long way towards decreasing the pain of creating applications, but some of the items that are out of scope, such as notifications and approvals, making sure the right artifacts are going to the right place, and orchestrating deployment strategies above the Kubernetes object level are non-trivial issues that can make or break your ability to provide Continuous Delivery. Fortunately, Spinnaker, the open source Continuous Delivery tool, ties together many of the tools we use every day, such as Kubernetes and Jenkins, to provide enormous power over your software pipeline to solve these problems.

Getting Helm to be Enterprise-ready
By: Baruch Sadogursky, April 3, 2018
Package managers are hard. Helm learned a lot of lessons from others’ mistakes, but also repeated some. For example, having a single index file per repository is not scalable. It’s the same mistake that NPM made and it causes slower CI, high memory consumption, slower searches, and more. Another example is not having private enterprise repositories in mind, leaving out authorization and authentication features. In this webinar, we’ll explore several solutions to those problems, their strengths, and their weaknesses.
Writing Less YAML – Using jsonnet and kubecfg to Manage Kubernetes Resources
By: JuanJo Ciarlante, March 20, 2018
Using YAML and kubectl is an easy way to describe simple Kubernetes workloads, but the devil is in the detail when you want to change “just” a few bits here and there to accommodate for multiple different environments, CI/CD pipelines and so on. Kubernetes users have quickly encountered the “face full of YAML” problem and need better solutions to manage their application manifests.

What is Cloud Native and Why Does It Exist?
By: Alexis Richardson, February 23, 2017
This talk will provide insights into the history of the foundation, its structure, goals and the processes for accepting new projects and new members. The Cloud Native Computing Foundation was created with the charter to define the term cloud native and provide a home for the cloud native, open source projects such as Kubernetes, Prometheus and others as well as to push the entire software industry to utilize modern cloud technologies more effectively.
Cloud Native Strategy
By: Jamie Dobson, December 22, 2016
Many companies see the benefits of highly available, scalable and resilient systems. They want to go ‘cloud native’ but as they reach for containerised microservices they may actually be grabbing the golden egg rather than the goose that laid it. In this webinar we’ll look at a model for emerging strategy, classic mistakes and how to avoid them. We’ll also look at how we can iterate through the ‘cloud native’ problem space. Along the way, and before we get to recent history, we’ll visit ancient Greece, post-war Scandinavia, and the Jet Propulsion Lab. We’ll learn about heuristics, including the doughnut principle, and then of course we’ll confront the key paradox that strategy tries to resolve: what is good for a business is not necessary good for those who work in it.
