Standardizing Applications For the Cloud at a Global Scale - Jared Watts, Upbound & Lei Zhang, Alibaba

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In our rapidly maturing world of cloud native software, what exactly does it mean to be an “application”, especially as deployments become more complicated and move towards multiple clusters, regions, and even clouds at a global scale? In this talk, we will examine both the need and the benefits of a standard application definition model, as well as dive into the details of recent specific efforts in the ecosystem, such as the Open Application Model (OAM).

Once an “application” has a standard definition, it becomes easier to perform powerful higher level orchestration capabilities, such as scheduling the application and all of its infrastructure dependencies across multiple environments. We will learn about how scheduling works in Kubernetes and how the principles of scheduling pods to nodes can be applied to a global scale to schedule complete applications across multiple clouds.
