NSMCon hosted by the NSM Community (Complimentary Registration Required)
Why Attend NSMCon? Are you running workloads in multiple clusters? Across multiple clouds: on-premises, hybrid, multicloud, or public cloud? Do they need to interact with legacy workloads running in less “cloudy” environments? Network Service Mesh (NSM) ties them all together, at the granularity of individual workloads, not cluster/VPCs/data centers. NSM is a community-driven, CNCF Sandbox project that is rapidly gaining momentum because of its ability to simplify connectivity between workloads, independent of where they are running. It extends an IP reachability domain to workloads running in multiple clusters, legacy environments, on-premises, or in a public cloud, communicating with the protocols they are currently using.

NSM does this at the granularity of individual workloads. Your workloads have connectivity to just the workloads they need…nothing more, nothing less. NSM brings the useful features of a Service Mesh from the lofty heights of HTTP all the way down to IP itself. Applications and Application Service Meshes, such as Istio, run unaltered on top, leaving the hybrid/multicloud IP connectivity to NSM.

The project emerged organically as a community project to solve these problems by applying the Service Mesh thought process all the way down to IP with the global peering mentality of the Internet itself – without breaking your existing environment.

Join the people building and using NSM at NSMCon for a day of tutorials, deep dives, and use cases to learn how NSM works, what it can do for you, and, most importantly, what’s coming next. For more information and the schedule visit the NSMCon 2020 website.

etcd Watchers Not Working? Improving Error Handling in Your Applications - Guillermo Nunez, IBM
When building services with etcd, one of the best features of etcd is watchers. It allows developers to create applications such that when a dataset is changed, the watcher for that dataset on another system receives the notification and performs user-specified action. A simple use case is a user has a program using etcd watchers to monitor the stock market and sell (user-defined action) if their stock of interest falls below price $X.

There are error failures that are not automatically covered with an etcd cluster such as network connectivity issues, DC outage, and cloud infrastructure maintenance. The talk consists of the following:
- what watchers are
- how to build your services using heartbeat key for monitoring etcd watchers
- perform locking on watchers to prevent race conditions
- caching data locally for your service to keep running until the etcd cluster is back up.

What's an Application in Kubernetes? - Antoine Legrand, Red Hat
A very simple question but with many different answers when asked. Kubernetes should provide a ground set of concepts that allows interoperability of systems and a shared knowledge in the ecosystem. In any kubernetes distribution, a Pod or a Service have the same definition, this is not the case for application. As end-users are mainly managing apps, it's time for kubernetes to get a representation and a definition of it. 
The sig-apps community came to an agreement to provide this missing piece. They created a new Application resource and its controller. This talk is bringing light to this new upstream resource, the features it provides with concrete examples, and the next steps and how to get involved.

Users First: Why (and How!) We Internationalized Our Cloud-Native Project - Carol Scott, Buoyant
While there are many resources online about internationalization (i18n) in general, there are Kubernetes-specific lessons that we learned at Buoyant in the process of internationalizing Linkerd’s web dashboard that are vital for end users and CNCF project maintainers alike who are building robust, global projects.

This lightning talk will share Linkerd’s recent i18n journey, including

- Why internationalizing user-facing features affects your project's success
- What i18n has to do with accessibility (a11y)
- What we applied -- and what we didn’t! -- from the K8s community’s i18n practices
- Kubernetes-specific pitfalls when internationalizing content

Audience members will leave with an accessible, easy roadmap to go from i18n idea to execution, with minimal organizational hiccups.

Stayin' Alive: PodDisruptionBudgets for Maintenance and Upgrades - Matthew Robson, Red Hat
As we work harder to automate our clusters, it becomes more and more difficult to guarantee the availability requirements of our applications. In large clusters, operations teams may not have the insights to ensure an applications minimum capacity requirements are maintained. Without that understanding, you may inadvertently bring down or inhibit applications through routine maintenance activities.

Enter the Pod Disruption Budget (PDB). Simply put, PDBs allows application owners to define the minimum requirement for a service to operate in a stable manner.

In this Lightning Talk, let me walk you through the benefits, usage and implementation of PDB’s. As an attendee, you will walk away with the necessary knowledge on how to use PDBs to define enforceable operating requirements of your applications.

Making Envoy Contributions Feasible for Everyone - Yaroslav Skopets, Tetrate.io
Have you ever considered contributing to Envoy?
What stops you?
Is it C++?
Is it completely different toolset?
Just don't feel yourself productive?
Well, we've got some news for you.
Thanks to a shiny, brand-new technology (WebAssembly), Envoy is becoming a polyglot.
And putting the human factor first, it means that now You can contribute using the toolbox that works best for You.
Paraphrasing, a demo is worth a thousand words.
Let's pick a language that everybody claims to be good at (JavaScript) and, surprisingly, use it to extend Envoy.
We'll do it live, under 5 minutes and have fun along the away (instead of cursing the-never-ending C++ compilation).

Using SOPS, Kube Secrets and a CD Pipeline For Secure Configuration - Tom Hipwell, Bulb
Managing configuration doesn't have to be complex, this lightening talk will show a super simple pattern for having configuration live within your repo and deployed to your Kubernetes cluster as a Secret or ConfigMap using a CD pipeline.

This is done using a CLI tool from Mozilla known as SOPS, with an envelope encryption model based on a master key supplied by a cloud based KMS provider such as AWS and a CD pipeline implemented using CircleCI. This pattern keeps your configuration secure, but allows it to be controlled in version control, under code-review and released using your build pipeline.

Build & Deploy a CNF in 5 Minutes - Rastislav Szabo, PANTHEON.tech
Cloud Native Network Function (CNF) is a software implementation of a network function, traditionally performed on a physical device (e.g. IPv4/v6 router, L2 bridge/switch, VPN gateway, firewall), but built and deployed in a cloud-native way.

This talk will show a live demo on how a CNF providing cloud-native NAT (Network Address Translation) functionality can be built and deployed into a Kubernetes cluster within 5 minutes. To achieve that, several open source projects will be used: FD.io (an open source terabit software dataplane), Ligato.io (programming framework for building CNF control and management plane) and Network Service Mesh for interconnecting CNFs in a Kubernetes cluster on required network layers.

Tutorial: Getting Started With Cloud Native Security - Liz Rice, Aqua Security & Michael Hausenblas, Amazon
This tutorial will get you off the ground with Kubernetes security basics, using live demos and examples to work through yourself.

We’ll start with possible attack vectors, to help you map out the threat model that applies to your cluster, so you can figure out where you need to focus your efforts for security.

We’ll show you how to compromise a deployment with a pod running with a known vulnerability. Once you’ve had the attacker’s eye-view, we’ll walk you through the most important techniques and open source tools to prevent compromise.

· Using secure Kubernetes settings
· Including vulnerability scanning in your workflow
· Configuring pods to run securely (eg avoiding unnecessary privileges)
· Using GitOps to restrict user access to your cluster and provide an audit trail

You’ll leave this tutorial armed with practical actions for securing your deployment.

Tutorial: Using BPF in Cloud Native environments - Alban Crequy & Marga Manterola, Kinvolk
Kubernetes provides a high-level abstraction layer that makes it easy to deploy distributed computing resources without knowing what’s happening in the kernel and applications. But when debugging, Kubernetes does not provide any help in inspecting these low-level details.

We showcase the following tools specifically designed for running on Kubernetes:
- Inspektor Gadget, built on BPF Compiler Collection (BCC) and traceloop
- kubectl-trace, built on bpftrace

These allow devops teams to answer debugging questions such as:
- What were the last system calls executed before the crash?
- Was this function called? With which arguments and return value?
- Which TCP packets were retransmitted?
- Which queries run slow?
- Was this file opened?

You'll need access to a Linux machine and a Minikube installation. Please follow the instructions at https://github.com/kinvolk/cloud-native-bpf-workshop

Help! My Cluster Is On The Internet: Container Security Fundamentals - Samuel Davidson, Google
You know security is important, but what does that actually mean in containers and Kubernetes, and more importantly, what are you supposed to do about it? If you’re new to Kubernetes, or at least Kubernetes security, this session will cover the fundamental concepts in container security -- including supply chain security and runtime security -- and give you context for the security tooling and open source projects like Falco and Open Policy Agent you will encounter in the cloud native ecosystem. We’ll use a real world example (“Oh no! This cluster is open to the internet!”) and cover a cheat sheet that you help you prevent bad things from happening.

You should expect to leave this session with a mental model of how to think about container security, a list of security-related decisions you need to make on “day 0," and resources for how to keep security front and center in your team.

Tutorial: Communication Is Key -- Understanding Kubernetes Networking - Jeff Poole, Vivint Smart Home
Networking in Kubernetes has several aspects, including DNS, iptables, routing, software bridges, IP assignment, network policies, etc. While the practices for understanding the network were fairly easy to translate from physical servers to virtual machines, the level of complexity increases greatly when moving to containers in Kubernetes.

This tutorial will explain several of the networking concepts used in Kubernetes with accompanying lab exercises in a virtualized environment so that participants will become comfortable looking under the hood at how a Kubernetes cluster is working (or not working, as the case may be).

The material will be designed for people comfortable with SSH, bash, kubectl, and basic networking concepts, and will fill in the more advanced networking knowledge as the tutorial progresses. Please have Vagrant + VirtualBox installed to run the labs locally.

Deliver Your Cloud Native Application with Design Pattern as Code - Jun Makishi & Rintaro Sekino, NTT Communications
As Cloud Native landscape is evolving, and many practices become outdated quickly, it is hard to follow best practices for integrating Cloud Native tools.
NTT Communications has introduced a new idea to manage such integration: Design Pattern as Code. We break a Cloud Native architecture into a small portion of design pattern per context to make it reusable and composable. As this approach enables sharing a well designed and maintained integration pattern across organizations, our software delivery becomes safe and scalable.
We will throw a live demo to build an application from some practical design patterns to turn it to Cloud Native application and delivery it to production safely.
We leverage Tekton, Cuelang, and many other Open Source tools, and we will give all participants our insight to use those tools to achieve such scalable application delivery

Securing Container Delivery with TUF - Lukas Puehringer, NYU
One of the most pressing security problems in cloud native is the secure delivery of container images. Common solutions addressing this problem live under the assumption that a signing key, used to protect an artifact or its distribution, is kept safe. But time has shown again and again that this assumption is faulty, and that a single key loss or compromise can cause enormous damage. That is why The Update Framework (TUF) was designed not only to prevent and detect attacks, but also with risk mitigation (reducing the damage from a successful attack) as a core principle. Being the first security-focused project to graduate in the CNCF, TUF is widely used both in and outside of the cloud ecosystem. In this talk we will describe the basic architecture of TUF including how TUF protects against a variety of real-world attacks on any software distribution infrastructure. We will show how even if an organization makes a security error (a server is hacked, a private key is checked into github, etc.), TUF can bring a repository back into a secure state.

Building the Cloud Native Telco with Network Service Mesh - Ivana Atanasova & Radoslav Dimitrov, VMware
Nowadays, the rapid technology development, significant increase of the number of connected devices and overall generated traffic, are challenging the networking solutions to evolve fast. Those solutions would hardly meet the higher demands for scalability and resiliency without adopting a cloud-native approach. Therefore, network service providers, like ISPs and Telco operators, are at the point of looking for a way to adopt the new cloud-native paradigm for their sophisticated network demands. Network Service Mesh is a CNCF project that offers a potential solution. In this talk we are going to introduce the approach Network Service Mesh is using to solve complicated L2/L3 challenges in Kubernetes and provide an example of building real cloud-native network topology using the tools provided by the NSM project. We are also going to show a demo of that topology implementation with NSM.

ClusterAPI: A Guide to Get Started - Katie Gamanji, American Express
In the past years, Kubernetes has been the nucleus of container orchestration frameworks. With the growing number of microservices, managing clusters at scale has become an imperative requirement. Additionally, from a technological landscape standpoint, the cloud platform teams are highly focused on delivering scalable, reliable and highly available platforms.
At Condé Nast, this constitutes in having a stable and coherent approach to deploy, manage and upgrade multiple Kubernetes clusters that are distributed globally. Also, it is imperative to keep the life-cycle management of the clusters consistent across all regions. Henceforth, this talk aims to present an overview of how Condé Nast prototypes tools, such as ClusterAPI, to ensure a sustainable cluster provisioning mechanism.

Startup Containers in Lightning Speed with Lazy Image Distribution - Kohei Tokunaga, NTT
Pulling image is one of the time-consuming steps in the container startup process. The most critical factor is the current OCI Image Spec with which a container cannot be started until its all image layers are downloaded. However, most of the contents in image layers are not being used for real-world workloads.

In this talk, Kohei will show state-of-the-art alternative image formats which lead to faster container startup by allowing container runtimes to start a container without waiting for all its contents to be locally available. He will also introduce CNCF containerd's fast image distribution approach "Remote Snapshotter" which leverages these formats (https://github.com/containerd/containerd/issues/3731). Finally, he will share the status of his current work on the remote snapshotter implementation and how to take advantage of the new functionality.

How This Innocent Image Had a Party in My Cluster - Amir Jerbi & Itay Shakury, Aqua Security
As security practices and tools for scanning container images are becoming increasingly popular, malicious actors are introducing sophisticated techniques to obfuscate their intent and evade scanning tools. The malware they plant cannot be detected using static analysis, or based on signatures. But dynamic analysis that runs the image, and then traces the activity of the running container can detect and document the entire multi-stage attack.

In this talk, we will review the evolution of these attacks as observed by Aqua’s security research team, and demonstrate the full chain of events and IoCs (indicators if compromise) that were detected. We will give practical advice on what developers and cluster admins should do to detect similar techniques, and the security controls the should be employed to reduce the chances of such an attack succeeding, as well as reduce its potential impact.

Stateful Serverless and the Elephant in the Room - Stephan Ewen, Ververica
Kubernetes and FaaS have solved most of the challenges of dealing with stateless applications. But when it comes to handling state, it quickly becomes “someone else's problem”. Because of that, we have struggled with the same issues of data consistency and complex failure semantics for the past decade. For stateful applications, we are still far from the smooth development and operations experience associated with serverless.
Stateful Functions is a new pattern to solve this problem. It uses containerized, event-driven functions with a stream processor (Apache Flink), not a database, to manage the state and handle the messaging between functions. This talk walks through the ideas behind Stateful Functions and shows how this simple framework solves the problem of consistency and failure semantics within and across functions, at the same time staying true to the serverless experience.

Kubernetes? But I'm a Product Manager… - Matthew McNeeney, Independent & Miguel Luna, VMware
Good product teams care deeply about their users and the experience they provide to them, yet many Product Managers shy away from conversations about Kubernetes, believing that it’s something for their engineering counterparts to think about. But this is a critical mistake; many of the benefits Kubernetes brings can be harnessed to deliver better products, faster.

The Kubernetes.io tagline is ‘Production-Grade Container Orchestration’, so it’s easy to see why Product Managers tend to leave it aside as an engineering concern. But much of the innovative work happening in the ecosystem can be used to ship software faster and deliver great user experiences. This talk will cover how Product Managers building different types of software can utilise features in Kubernetes to build extensible, scalable and cloud-agnostic products that drive better customer outcomes.

Intro to Falco: Intrusion Detection for Containers - Shane Lawrence, Shopify
How do you protect Kubernetes clusters from malicious behavior? Role-based access control won't stop a user who's authorized to create pods from deploying hundreds of coin miners, and Intrusion Detection Systems at a network edge won't catch requests from a compromised container to the API server. Falco joined CNCF Incubator as an open-source runtime monitoring tool that combines kernel-level visibility with cluster-level awareness, making it possible to implement security policy and assert if these policies have been violated. In this session, Shane will demonstrate detection use cases, and discuss how Shopify has been using Falco since 2018 to monitor containers in a cloud environment that processes $100 million+ per day. Attendees will learn how to deploy Falco at scale, implement and change the ruleset, avoid common pitfalls with eBPF probes and kernel modules, and manage alert volume.

Over the past year Nationale Nederlanden (NN) has built a managed Kubernetes platform for their DevOps teams.

Now, a year later, we are managing over twenty Kubernetes clusters that are running multiple production workloads. Although Kubernetes is the main component, it turned out that lifecycle management and reliable delivery of changes to in-use platforms proved to be the most challenging part. All-in-all there are fifteen components that provide all the platform features and services, so we had to get creative to make sure that we kept up to date with all of them.

OpenID Connect as SSO Solution: Strengths and Weaknesses - Álvaro Iradier, Sysdig
OpenID Connect (OIDC), an identity layer on top of OAuth2 protocol, makes user login easier and allows for a seamless SSO experience between multiple tools and services by delegating authentication to a trusted Identity Provider (Authorization Server). The concept is quite appealing at first sight. But different implementations and lack of agreement, both on the client applications and on the Authorization Servers, can ruin your trip.

In this talk we will explain the basic concepts of OIDC, how it works, how it compares to other Federated Authentication systems like SAML, and some integration examples like Harbor or Kubernetes.

Building a Distributed API Gateway with a Service Mesh - Rei Shimizu, Waseda University & Cynthia Coan, Tetrate
API Gateways are going through an identity crisis. As microservice architectures proliferate we're learning that really, we need API Gateway functionality between all of our services, and not just at ingress where API Gateways have been deployed traditionally. The ability to dynamically extend Envoy at runtime via WASM opens the door for many new capabilities, including moving API Gateway functionality into the service mesh layer.

In this talk, we'll explore how we helped extend Envoy to support executing WASM as a safe, sandboxed way to run arbitrary code in the proxy. We'll then go further by showing how we used WASM to move functionality typically reserved for the edge of our deployments - API Gateway functions like token validation, rate limiting, and payload transformation - into the service mesh in a real user's deployment.

Progressive Delivery in Kubernetes - Carlos Sanchez, Adobe & Viktor Farcic, CloudBees
Progressive Delivery makes it easier to adopt Continuous Delivery, by deploying new versions to a subset of users and evaluating their correctness and performance before rolling them to the totality of the users, and rolled back if not matching some key metrics. Canary deployments is one of the techniques in Progressive Delivery, used in companies like Facebook to roll out new versions gradually. But good news! you don't need to be Facebook to take advantage of it.

We will demo how to create a fully automated Progressive Delivery pipeline with Canary deployments and rollbacks in Kubernetes using Jenkins X, an open source platform for cloud native CI/CD in Kubernetes, and Flagger, a project that uses Prometheus and your service mesh of choice to automate Canary rollouts and rollbacks.

Building the Next Generation of Release Notes for Kubernetes and Beyond - Sascha Grunert, SUSE
Kubernetes is an open source project with a high velocity of PRs and releases. While the activity and interest in the project is awesome, communicating these changes to end users becomes difficult. For a long time, each release would generate a new release notes markdown document that required manual cleanup and curation. In recent months the format has been reconsidered and completely restructured. The majority of content in the previous markdown has become a widely used website!

Generating and publishing release notes for open source projects can be a pain point, especially as a project grows. Imagine if there was a solution usable with many different projects? This talk will go over the history of Kubernetes release notes, the current state of relnotes.k8s.io, and future plans for automated publishing of release notes and notifications.

Kubernetes as a General Purpose Control Plane: Scaling on Kubernetes - Hasan Turken, Upbound
Kubernetes style APIs are becoming popular as it works great as a general purpose control plane. One can build operators on top of it to declaratively manage resources living outside of the cluster.

But how to scale when we want to run multiple isolated instances of such an operator? Do we really need a full fledged Kubernetes Cluster for each or can we run only a subset of control plane components by considering we are managing external resources?

In this talk, we will discuss the minimal control plane components when we want to use Kubernetes as a general purpose control plane. Building on top of that, we will propose a lightweight solution to run multiple isolated control plane instances as tenants on a single Kubernetes Cluster. At the end, a live demo will be shown that provides a practical example of the solution proposed.

Enabling Multi-user Machine Learning Workflows for Kubeflow Pipelines - Yannis Zarkadas, Arrikto & Yuan Gong, Google
Kubeflow is an open source machine learning platform built on Kubernetes. Every service in Kubeflow is implemented either as a Custom Resource Definition (CRD) (e.g., TensorFlow Job) or as a standalone service (e.g., Kubeflow Pipelines).

As enterprises start to adopt Kubeflow, the need for access control, authentication, and authorization is emerging. Kubernetes CRDs come with their own auth story, but what about Services with their own API and database, like Kubeflow Pipelines? In this talk, we explore how we enabled multi-user workflows for Kubeflow Pipelines, in a Kubernetes-native way.

We present how we combined open-source, cloud-native technologies to design and implement a flexible, Kubernetes-native solution for services with their own API and database. The talk will include a live demo.

From Alert Notification to Comparison of Good and Bad Requests in One Click - Shreyas Srivatsan, Chronosphere
Metrics are a great tool for notifying when something goes wrong. Distributed tracing provides the ability to drill down deeper into an issue when triaging an alert with a non-obvious root cause. It’s already difficult to jump from metrics raising an alert to a representative problematic trace, but even once there, users often want to compare a problematic trace with a non-problematic one to help root cause the issue. This talk demonstrates how to jump straight from an alert notification to displaying a problematic trace along with a comparison to a non-problematic trace.

This is accomplished with a combination of open source tools such as Prometheus, Jaeger, Grafana and M3. The audience will learn how recent advances in the community can enable them to reduce their time-to-mitigation by providing the relevant context of a bad request vs a good request directly from a graph.

Kubernetes DNS Horror Stories (And How to Avoid Them) - Laurent Bernaille, Datadog
DNS is one of the Kubernetes core systems and can quickly become a source of issues when you’re running clusters at scale. For over a year at Datadog, we’ve run Kubernetes clusters with thousands of nodes that host workloads generating tens of thousands of DNS queries per second. It wasn’t easy to build an architecture able to handle this load, and we’ve had our share of problems along the way.

This talk starts with a presentation of how Kubernetes DNS works. It then dives into the challenges we’ve faced, which span a variety of topics related to load, connection tracking, upstream servers, rolling updates, resolver implementations, and performance. We then show how our DNS architecture evolved over time to address or mitigate these problems. Finally, we share our solutions for detecting these problems before they happen—and identifying misbehaving clients.

Handling Container Vulnerabilities with Open Policy Agent - Teppei Fukuda, Aqua Security
A vulnerability scanner for containers doesn’t help a user decide how to handle vulnerabilities. For example, even if a critical vulnerability is found, some organizations may accept the risk of it. The policy for vulnerability handling depends on the organization, and in many cases, the person in charge has to make a manual judgement based on this policy every time. This is time-consuming.

This talk demonstrates how to automatically handle vulnerabilities detected by a scanner using OPA.
- The vulnerabilities found by a scanner in CI are handled automatically by Open Policy Agent
- Applying custom policy, OPA shows users which vulnerabilities to address

This automatic vulnerability handling in CI will be demonstrated live, along with Trivy, which is an open source vulnerability scanner for containers. The same policy handling model could be used with any scanner.

Mesh in a Mesh: A Model for Stronger Multi-tenancy of Kubernetes Workloads - Nitish Malhotra & Akash Baid, Affirmed Networks
Most organizations use some flavor of multi-tenancy in their clusters for their teams, applications or customers. Namespaces paired with RBAC, ResourceQuota & NetworkPolicy provide ways to isolate tenants at some level. However these primitives are insufficient for setting L7 policies on the ingress/egress traffic per tenant.

If you’re administering clusters for multiple tenants, attend this talk to learn a new model for deploying workloads in tenant specific sub-meshes within your service mesh. This model uses Envoy based ingress/egress gateways per-tenant, which helps:
- set traffic policies and scale resources per-tenant
- hide tenant application topology when communicating with external entities
- assign per-tenant identities (SPIFFE) for use with transport authentication (mTLS), authorization (OAuth2) & origin authentication (JWT)
- share mesh control plane resources across tenants

Cloud Native has become a synonym for scalable and reliable distributed applications. And a well-behaved, distributed system is synonymous with a highly-available, consumable, and composable Network.

Over the past 2 chapters of our evolutionary tale, we have discussed the need for the Network to evolve beyond the 35-year old concepts that still define it to this day. And we have demonstrated, through a real-world database (Vitess) use case, the developmental and operational power and simplicity this new paradigm delivers.

Keynote: Open Source Intrusion Detection for Containers at Shopify - Shane Lawrence, Senior Security Infrastructure Engineer, Shopify & Kris Nóva, Chief Open Source Advocate, Sysdig
Even well protected workloads may be compromised by 0-days and platform vulnerabilities. Observability is essential for detecting and stopping an attack before infrastructure and information is compromised. Shopify uses open source Falco, a CNCF incubating project, to track syscalls at the kernel level and reveal them to a Kubernetes-aware process in userspace. That uses predefined rules to decide which events to log. Additional tooling filters and aggregates logs, and generates alerts when suspicious activity is detected.

In this talk, Shane will describe how Shopify first deployed Falco in 2018 and continues to use it to monitor critical systems, including those that process payment card information. He will share tips and tricks for getting the most out of Falco, areas for improvement, and use cases for detecting compromise or data exfiltration when all else fails.

An official RSVP for the EmpowerUs conversation is required. 

Life, technology, and business are all a series of challenges and opportunities. How we respond to adverse circumstances, from startup pivots to struggling collaborations to global pandemics, can define our companies, and us. When faced with uncertainty, the best way to empower yourself, your company and each other is through innovation. And the best way to innovate is to commit, with confidence and conviction, to what you believe in, and yet be agile and open enough to identify and capitalize on the opportunities for learning that a diverse, fast-moving world creates. With this foundation of innovation, comes true empowerment and potential for progress.

Join Ali Fenn, President of ITRenew and Heather McGough, CEO of Lean Startup for a frank and candid conversation about what they’re seeing in the market today, what they’ve learned throughout their careers about continuing to drive important agendas forward without compromise, how they’re guiding their organizations through change, and why they’re coaching others to embrace diverse ideas, people and approaches that challenge traditional business dynamics.

Whether you are a seasoned professional or early in career, getting a startup off the ground or steering a multinational organization, join us for an open discussion about challenge, leadership innovation, and empowerment. You may just hear an idea that sparks you, or contribute one that helps someone else!

Towards a Standardized Application Definition Model for Kubernetes - Phil Prasek, Upbound & Sudhanva Huruli, Microsoft
With multiple Kubernetes application models emerging to capture the complex set of cloud resources and their connectivity, how do these approaches stack up and is there a path towards a standardized Kubernetes application model that becomes the unit of scheduling across clusters, regions, and clouds?

In this talk we’ll explore two emerging application models: the KubernetesApplication in Crossplane (a multi-cloud control plane) and the Open Application Model (OAM) from Microsoft and Alibaba. We’ll provide an overview of strengths and opportunities of each approach and directions towards converging around a standardized application model as part of the newly formed CNCF SIG: sig-app-delivery.

Operating Enterprise Grade Kubernetes Clusters at Salesforce on Bare Metal - Anubhav Dhoot & Mayank Kumar, Salesforce
Many enterprises today don’t have the luxury of public cloud managed offerings, or VM’s in their private data centers. In the absence of these, it’s challenging to operate enterprise grade Kubernetes clusters and manage it seamlessly.

We will talk about specific challenges in bringing up a highly available kubernetes cluster on bare metal, securing it, upgrading it, monitoring it 24/7, and doing all of that using Puppet, while maintaining SLA for our customers.

We will cover a lot of lessons learnt in managing a fleet of 2600+ hosts across 20 + data centers over the last 4 years, including battle stories like dangers of etcd initial-cluster-state config, hairpin networking issues, and setting up service accounts with key rotation.

While we are well on the path to using managed K8s offerings in Public Cloud, this will be a cautionary tale for teams managing their own k8s clusters.

A Hard Multi-tenancy Solution: Use Case, Challenges and Work - Xiaoning Ding & Qian Chen, Futurewei
Multi-tenancy enables multiple organizations or teams to share the same cluster. There are different proposed multi-tenancy models in Kubernetes for different use cases, from soft-tenancy models where tenants trust each other to hard-tenancy models with no trust among tenants.

In this session, Xiaoning and Qian will share their use case of multi-tenant Kubernetes, where they share clusters with public cloud users. There is no trust among these users and a strong isolation among tenants is a must. They will talk about the use case, challenges, work, and also experience and lessons they learned from building such a hard multi-tenant cluster. And they will conclude the talk with a demo.

Scaling Prometheus: How We Got Some Thanos Into Cortex - Thor Hansen, HashiCorp & Marco Pracucci, Grafana Labs
Cortex is a long term storage for Prometheus, designed for scalability, multi-tenancy and high-availability. It can reliably ingest and query millions of time series per second with sub-second latency. The current storage design uses a NoSQL store to index series and an object store for compressed time series data - two dependencies, and one with significant cost implications. In this talk we will show the new experimental Cortex blocks storage, based on Thanos and Prometheus TSDB, aiming to reduce the Cortex operational cost without compromising scalability and performances. We’ll cover the trade-off between the standard chunks storage and the new blocks storage, and share lessons learned running Cortex at scale. Cortex is a CNCF sandbox project.

Network Isolation and Security Policies for Kubernetes Bare-metal Nodes - Girish Moodalbail, NVIDIA & Liel Shoshan, Mellanox
Running Kubernetes at scale in a multi-tenant Cloud requires strong network isolation and flexible stateful security policy enforcement for the bare-metal nodes used for both the tenant K8s clusters as well as in the Cloud control plane. Such isolation and security needs to be implemented in a way that consumes as little host resources as possible, while being immune to potentially malicious host root user. Additionally, the preferred implementation needs to be compatible with a high-performance (offloaded) K8s CNI. This presentation provides an overview of such an implementation for Software Defined (SDN) K8s node networking, based on Open Virtual Network (OVN) and Open vSwitch (OVS)) and offloaded to “bump-in-the-wire” Smart NICs .

Tracing is For Everyone: Tracing User Events with GraphQL and OpenTelemetry - Nina Stawski, Splunk
There's been a lot of talk about the importance of observability and tracing for microservice-based applications. The use cases involved are focused on backend engineers and DevOps. But what about us front-end engineers? Often, we get blamed first when something breaks and the lack of consistent observability tools makes it difficult to debug issues.

With the emergence of OpenTelemetry for JavaScript, more front-end developers are looking to instrument their code and connect their traces with the backend. A growing number of teams are adopting GraphQL as their interface between UI and backend as well. This talk will illustrate the process of setting up your app for tracing with OpenTelemetry, show what’s common in GraphQL instrumentation compared to other libraries and describe the potential pitfalls of the approach.

In January, Kubernetes launched a bug bounty program (BBP), creating a centralized way for security researchers to report vulnerabilities they find in products in exchange for monetary rewards. Just as many organizations support open source by hiring developers, paying bug bounties directly supports security researchers. The Kubernetes BBP is particularly interesting as it’s still rare for a large scale, open-source infrastructure project to have a public BBP.

In this talk, we’ll cover what a BBP is and what it means for Kubernetes.

Envoy, Take the Wheel: Real-time Adaptive Circuit Breaking - Tony Allen, Lyft
Modern service mesh deployments are equipped with hundreds of tunables, such as timeouts and circuit breakers. Finding ideal initial values requires deep technical expertise. Workloads change over time, requiring regular effort to re-tune stale parameters. As a consequence, configuration errors have become a source of operational toil and one of the major causes of system failures across the industry. The service mesh should aim to expose a minimal configuration surface by dynamically adjusting parameters based on observations.

Tony Allen will provide a deep-dive into how Envoy’s Adaptive Concurrency Control feature dynamically tunes circuit breaker thresholds using real-time sampling of request latencies, removing the need for periodic adjustment. He will also discuss lessons learned deploying the feature to Lyft’s production service mesh.

Using Kubernetes to Build Better Kubernetes Networking and Autoscaling - Ahmet Alp Balkan, Google
While Kubernetes revolutionized the infrastructure management, it still falls short of effectively running microservices, since it doesn't distinguish between stateless HTTP-based apps and regular workloads like batch jobs.

For example, Kubernetes cannot natively perform traffic splitting, blue/green deployments, or evenly distributed load-balancing. Similarly, Kubernetes autoscaling cannot handle spiky traffic without dropping in-flight requests, or scale Pods down to zero when there are no requests.

This talk will be about Knative Serving, which is a set of controllers built on Kubernetes to simplify mentioned network and autoscaling problems. By inspiring developers with the ideas learned from developing Knative, operators can extend Kubernetes themselves or adopt these practices to simplify running microservices on Kubernetes and make it more approachable to their dev teams.

Easy, Secure and Fast - Using NATS for Data Streams and Services - Colin Sullivan, Synadia
Distributed systems architecture has been disrupted via decomposition as cloud technology has matured - we’ve seen a migration from monolithic applications to microservices coordinating across large scale deployments. This has created a need for flexible deployments, secure and transparent data sharing, multiple communication patterns, location transparency, and the decoupling of data producers and consumers. NATS is a cloud-native messaging project that addresses these needs. While cloud-native, NATS and can also run on-premise, edge and even endpoints. In this discussion, we'll introduce you to NATS: how NATS came to be, its DNA and cover some of the problems that it solves. We’ll describe common messaging patterns, when to use them, and design principles to create NATS enabled cloud-native applications. For more information be sure to follow this up with the NATS deep dive!

Scaling Kubernetes Networking Beyond 100k Endpoints - Rob Scott & Minhan Xia, Google
As Kubernetes continues to grow, scalability is increasingly important. One of the key bottlenecks that emerged as clusters got larger was related to network endpoints. They became quite slow at scale, and had limitations preventing them from growing beyond approximately 5,000 endpoints per Service.

In this talk, Rob will show how the scalability of network endpoints has been dramatically increased in Kubernetes. He’ll cover the design and implementation of EndpointSlices, along with the impact they’ve had. He’ll walk through the process of profiling key components in the Kubernetes codebase to identify areas that could be optimized. Finally, he’ll show how all this work has improved Kubernetes network scalability, including real world performance metrics from large clusters with over 100,000 endpoints.

Observability at Scale: Running OpenTelemetry Across an Enterprise - Jonah Back & Kranti Vikram, Intuit
Observability has been a huge topic of interest in the software industry over the last few years. One of the major components in observability is distributed tracing. Tools like Jaeger, Zipkin, OpenCensus, and OpenTelemetry have made it really easy to get started. Less easy, however, is getting your tracing infrastructure to a place where it can be fully leveraged across hundreds, if not thousands, of services.

This talk will cover Intuit's experience deploying tracing infrastructure using Kubernetes, Jaeger, and OpenTelemetry. It will cover a few key areas in Intuit's journey to running a highly available, multi-region tracing solution.

1) Scaling ElasticSearch to support 500M+ traces per day.
2) Secure, automated on-boarding of OpenTelemetry agents to central collectors
3) Leveraging open-source libraries to provide high quality trace data, enhanced with domain-specific attributes

Hey, Did You Hear About This New CVE? - A Vulnerability Response Playbook - Andrew Lytvynov, Independent & Alexandr Tcherniakhovski, Google
Kubernetes provides a lot of great ways to harden the security of your infrastructure. But despite how much you have it locked down, things will inevitably go wrong. Hope is not a strategy, so you need a contingency plan.
In this prescriptive talk, you will learn how to prepare for complex vulnerabilities (like the Intel speculative execution or Go HTTP/2 DoS vulnerabilities), mitigate them and clean up afterwards. We’ll share our experiences with the GKE fleet, dealing with newly announced vulnerabilities, and lessons learned balancing both security and reliability of workloads.
You will learn how to develop a response playbook for vulnerabilities. You will also learn about the tools that Kubernetes provides to help make your vulnerability response less hectic, such as audit logs, network policies and RBAC.

This talk will not cover live attacks (attackers in your infrastructure).

Mutual TLS Adoption Made Simple, Safe and Secure - Lizan Zhou, Tetrate & Jianfei Hu, Google
Rolling out mutual TLS to service meshes is challenging. In the real world, service mesh adoptions are incremental. Services deployment are heterogenous, consisting of workloads with or without sidecar, able or unable to speak mutual TLS, on both client and server side. Coordinating the mutual TLS rolling out with service mesh adoption is hard.

In this talk, Jianfei and Lizan will explain the lessons learned from the last several years experience. Specifically, we walk through Envoy innovations to address the problem on both client and server side: TLS sniffing on the server side and per endpoint mutual TLS labeling mechanism on the client side. In the end, we show how these techniques combined together to offer a frictionless user journey to adopt mutual TLS safely.

Five Great Ways to Lose Data on Kubernetes (And How to Avoid Them) - Robert Hodges, Altinity LTD
Databases and stateful apps are gravitating rapidly to Kubernetes, so the sorrows of accidental data loss cannot be far behind. As long-time database engineers and authors of the ClickHouse Kubernetes operator, our team has seen lots of imaginative ways to lose data. We also learned how to prevent them.

The talk starts with standard high availability/disaster recovery models used in DBMS and demonstrates that classic ways to lose data are still alive and well on Kubernetes. We'll then pivot to Kubernetes-specific disasters-in-waiting, such as the PV that wasn't, affinity afflictions, and the dreaded fat fingers of fate. The talk will help instill a healthy sense of paranoia and give listeners tools to ensure their experiences with cloud-native data will be happy ones.

Toolchains Behind Successful Kubernetes Development Workflows - L Körbes, Tilt
Kubernetes solved a lot of problems, but it created a clumsy development workflow: Every code change requires fiddling with containers, registries, and manifests. Managing config files isn't trivial. Distributed debugging; a mystery. Dev clusters are tricky to set up, and sharing cluster state among team-members is mostly fiction.

L Körbes, an expert in Kubernetes development tooling, outlines successful development workflows in three different settings: a very large enterprise, a small and agile startup, and a popular open source project.

L will share how they set up dev clusters, manage configs, automate the development feedback loop, share context across teams, debug, and, finally, deploy to production.

Do The Math: Auto-Scaling Applications with Kubernetes - Antoine Hamon, Nephely
What better place is there to host applications but inside a Kubernetes cluster? Yet what feature is more under-estimated than pod auto-scaling? Yes pod auto-scaling can be really hard, especially when searching for an optimized configuration. Whatever the application, goals are always the same: making sure our pods are able to scale-up quickly enough so users don't ever face any latency nor HTTP/5xx, while keeping the cost as low as possible. As both goals directly leverage the other, the complexity is all about finding the correct balance. Instead of putting the regular 80% CPU utilization threshold (which is sometimes fine-tuned with load-testing and/or feedback monitoring), would it be possible to have a more mathematical approach to solve this problem?

During this talk Antoine will present one he created and explain how to utilize it within Kubernetes.

Where Are Your Images Running? Stop Worrying and Start Encrypting! - Brandon Lum & Harshal Patil, IBM
Container image signing has made it possible for cluster operators to cryptographically verify that images are trusted. However, the same cannot be said of whether the nodes that run these images are trusted to view and use the contents of these images. This can be particularly important if compliance requires knowledge of WHERE a container image is running.

In this talk, we will show how DevOps, trust bootstrapping, and key management, in conjunction with container image encryption can achieve geofencing of execution. We will demo the new encrypted container images worker node model in containerd and cri-o working in such a context. In addition, we will explore how to bootstrap node trust, from simple setups to advanced key distribution using HW Root of Trust/TPM technologies like Keylime.

At the end, one should be able to “create an image only be usable by clusters in the EU region”.

Cloudstate—Towards Stateful Serverless - Jonas Bonér & James Roper, Lightbend
The Serverless experience is revolutionary and will grow to dominate the future of Cloud. FaaS however—with its ephemeral, stateless, and short-lived functions—is only the 1st step. It's great for processing-intensive, parallelizable workloads, but limited in use-cases, making it hard to impl general-purpose apps.

What’s needed is a next-gen Serverless platform for general-purpose app dev for our new world of real-time data & event-driven systems. What’s missing is: ways to manage distributed state in a scalable & available fashion, long-lived stateful services, ways to co-locate data & processing, and options for data consistency.

This talk will discuss challenges, requirements, and introduce you to our proposed solution: CloudState—an OSS project building next-gen Stateful Serverless on Akka, gRPC, Kubernetes & GraalVM, with client support for Go, JavaScript, Java, Swift and more.

Simplify Your Cloud Native Application Packaging and Deployments - Chris Crone, Docker
With so many tools for declaring and deploying applications, developing cloud native apps can get complicated quickly. Single container images can be built and shared with a registry, but what about multi container or other more complex applications? Using the CNAB (Cloud Native Application Bundle) specification, open source projects like Docker App or Porter allow you to package apps that would normally require multiple tools like Terraform, Helm, and shell to deploy - into a single tooling agnostic packaging format. These packages can then be shared using existing container registries and used with other CNAB compliant tools.

In this talk, Chris Crone, co-executive director of the CNAB project, will share how to simplify cloud native development workflows using your favorite tools like Terraform, Helm and others, without requiring every developer to learn them.

Failure Stories From the On-premise Bare-metal World - Stephan Fudeus & David Meder-Marouelli, 1&1 Mail & Media Development & Technology GmbH
Setting up a Kubernetes cluster is not trivial in general and doing that on-premise with bare-metal machines has very specific challenges. In addition to "just" defining the pod overlay network and embedding the host network into an existing topology, ingesting and directing traffic into the cluster is an essential task. Regardless of the chosen solution, compromises need to be made and eventually, failures will occur.

In this session David and Stephan will show their real world setup of reasonably large clusters (up to 150 nodes currently), the reasoning behind the network design and the failure stories they experienced and had to deal with. The topics are ranging from ingress controllers via BGP, network routing, DNS and iptables to hardware load balancer appliances - and how those technologies are not as cloud native as one might wish.

Banking on Kubernetes, the Hard Way, in Production - Miles Bryant & Suhail Patel, Monzo Bank
Have you ever wondered what it takes to deploy and operate Kubernetes at scale, in production? Self hosted clusters often have a bad reputation as a complex and costly choice when compared to managed services. Let’s look at an alternative viewpoint and evaluate the tradeoffs.

Monzo started self hosting Kubernetes out of necessity a few years ago when managed services were in their infancy. In this talk, Miles and Suhail will explain why Monzo has chosen to continue operating their own clusters, and how this can be a viable option.

This talk discusses Monzo’s experiences with operating, upgrading, customising and configuring the control plane, networking and cloud integrations.

In a Container, Nobody Hears Your Screams: Next Generation Process Isolation - Andrew Martin, ControlPlane
Is it ever safe to run untrusted code in containers? Should process isolation keep workloads in, or attackers out? What would it take to run a malware test lab in Kubernetes?

With fast startup times and consistent execution environments containers beat traditionally slow, monolithic VMs -- but with the advancement of micro VMs the boundaries have become blurred. It is increasingly difficult to know which isolation technology to choose for our next application. Can we run different workloads in different “container” types -- on the same cluster?

In this talk we:
- examine the history of trying to safely run unsafe processes
- compare and contrast the emerging generation of process isolation and security techniques
- rationalise the design decisions that drive each project
- demo how to break in, out, and learn about what workloads are best suited to run in each technology

Serverless Integration on Kubernetes with Apache Camel K - Nicola Ferraro, Red Hat
“Serverless” is one of the most trending paradigms for designing applications, but what most early adopters find out is that doing something more than a “Hello World!” is hard. The more your application is deconstructed into smaller pieces, the more you need better communication patterns. Real-life applications also interact with tons of external systems and managing this complexity is hard.

Camel K is a lightweight integration platform for Kubernetes created specifically to address these issues. It’s based on Apache Camel, the most powerful open source integration framework, and it leverages Knative to deliver integration patterns in a serverless way.

We will show how Camel K works under the hood and, with coding examples, we’ll also demonstrate how Camel K makes it easy is to connect (almost) anything using integration patterns and the 300+ components that Apache Camel provides.

Why We Are Choosing Cloud Native Buildpacks at GitLab - Abubakar Siddiq, GitLab
GitLab provides a zero configuration build/test/deploy pipeline called "Auto DevOps" which relies on Herokuish for detecting how to build/test your source code into a runnable docker image. Currently, GitLab uses Herokuish  to match projects with known languages and build them. The new tooling from CNB is capable of building smaller resultant images by separating the build layers from the runtime layers. In order to increase the speed and efficiency of GitLab's products, the Product team investigated the Cloud Native Buildpacks, which provide a cloud-native means of standardizing code detection and producing a standards-based container runtime.

In this talk, learn about GitLab’s goals, plan, and how they made the decision to move forward based on the greatest benefit to GitLab from CNAB -  the larger community fixing CNAB issues.

Neuro-Inclusivity: The Future of the Tech Industry - Kiran "Rin" Oliver, Independent & Leena Haque, BBC
According to a 2018 report from Tech Nation, 83% of the tech community in the UK believe their biggest challenge is accessing skilled workers. Too many talented people are going unnoticed by recruiters. As a result, there’s been much focus on attracting talent of all ethnicities and genders, but there’s a growing view emerging that more needs to be done in the area of neurodiversity.

Many cloud native companies are answering this issue by creating initiatives to hire neurodivergent people. Often, an entire division of recruiting/HR is dedicated to sourcing these individuals. There’s just one problem: They don't actually know what to do next. This panel will go into those next steps, in particular, focusing on on-boarding, retaining, and creating a welcoming work environment for neurodivergent individuals in today’s Kubernetes-based, cloud-native landscape.

The Hidden Generics in Kubernetes' API - Eirik Albrigtsen, Babylon Health
A look into how apimachinery enforces strong conventions on kubernetes' api, how that impacts client-go, and how we can take advantage of these hidden generic properties to build an actually generic client in rust.

We will go through a kubernetes Object, its generic parts as modelled via a rust Trait, and how this enables the rust compiler to automatically populate all kubernetes objects' api calls and serialization code from a single generic impl.

We will also show examples on how to write single file, performant, async/await rust controllers that follow operator best practices.

How to Use Kubernetes to Build a Data Lake for AI Workloads - Peter MacKinnon & Uday Boppana, Red Hat
The recent popularity of hybrid cloud architectures have left organizations with traditional data lakes behind. How do you build a data architecture that is cloud provider agnostic and is flexible enough to run in across public and private cloud data centers? How do you make this data available to data scientists and developers in a way that simplifies the creation of intelligent applications?

This talk will walk through a new way of building data lakes for the hybrid cloud using Rook and Ceph community projects running on Kubernetes. With a single data architecture deployment that can run in any cloud or across multiple clouds, IT and data engineers can use open source tools on Kubernetes such as Rook, Ceph, Hive metastore, Spark, and Presto to provide unified access to massive amounts of data across multiple data centers for data scientists and developers.

eBPF and Kubernetes: Little Helper Minions for Scaling Microservices - Daniel Borkmann, Cilium
eBPF has come a long way in the Linux kernel and is gaining more and more adoption
and popularity in the context of Kubernetes in the networking, tracing and security
space. In fact, it is changing the way we think about operating systems by opening
the doors to fully customise the Linux kernel as a platform. Given the rapid pace of
development of eBPF in the kernel, it is often times quite challenging to keep up
with all the exciting advances coming from the eBPF community.

This talk provides a deep dive from the perspective of one of the eBPF co-maintainers
and core developers in the Linux kernel of where we came from, where we currently are,
what the future brings, why eBPF has cloud native roots and how Kubernetes users can
benefit from all that. We will cover the user space landscape around eBPF as well as
its inner workings and interactions with the rest of the kernel.

Reimagining the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid on Kubernetes - Lukas Heinrich, CERN & Alessandra Forti, University of Manchester
At CERN, the home of the web, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN hosts some of the largest physics experiments ever constructed. The distributed infrastructure built over the last 20 years -- the World-wide LHC computing grid (WLCG) would today be described a federated, multi-cloud and multi-cluster deployment, mostly made up of a diverse set of research institute batch systems deployed on bare-metal or VMs. The rise of containers is an opportunity to reimagine the WLCG deployed on Kubernetes. In this talk we will cover how we leverage CNCF tools in this transition. Using e.g. containerd snapshotters for worldwide image distribution, Helm GitOps for reproducible configuration of multi-cluster setups and our deployment of services and batch workloads in that system. In a demo, we will deploy a member of the federation which will then receive workloads to analyze subatomic collision data.

Container Isolation via Virtualization: Don't Forget to Shrink the Guest - Dan Williams, IBM & Hsuan-Chi (Austin) Kuo, UIUC
Virtualization must be lightweight to be useful for improving the isolation of container runtimes (e.g., Kata containers): adding traditional (heavyweight) virtualization layers to container primitives would, for example, result in unacceptable boot time and performance for important use cases like serverless computing. Fortunately, the community has made great strides towards lightweight virtualization with new VM monitors (e.g., AWS Firecracker) and associated tooling (e.g., Weaveworks Ignite). However, there has been relatively little attention paid to the guest kernel itself, which remains unnecessarily bloated, affecting both performance and security. We will make the case for guest kernel specialization via kernel configuration and highlight key challenges in applying these techniques in a sandboxed container context.

Keynote: How to Love K8s and Not Wreck the Planet - Holly Cummins, Worldwide IBM Garage Developer Lead, IBM
The past five years have been the warmest since records began. Human activity, including the IT industry, is driving worrying climate change. Data centres alone consume 3% of the world's energy, and more and more of that energy is being used by Kubernetes and workloads running on Kubernetes. Is k8s helping, or making things worse?

The beauty of the cloud is that it makes it easy to run code, virtualised and scheduled for efficiency... but it doesn't provide any guarantee that what's running is useful. Even when the workload is high-value and efficient, Kube sprawl can lead to low utilisation, unsatisfactory elasticity, and high costs - but mega-mono-clusters have their own problems around isolation, security, and management. How should these competing requirements be balanced? This talk discusses some of the trade-offs and provides a roadmap to figuring out the right thing.

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

KinD-ly Validating Your K8s Apps Automatically Per PR - Sarah Khalife, GitHub & Grant Griffiths, Portworx
Kubernetes application developers working on successful projects thrive on collaboration that is transparent, consistent, and rigorous. This is one of the reasons many open source projects excel. However, a common pitfall that app developers face is manually testing against inconsistent environments. Testing k8s application correctness can differ per developer environment. It is also very time consuming to spin up and down k8s clusters. In this talk, we will demonstrate a simple set of steps to create and automate a homogenous testing environment for your application. We will be using KinD, a tool for running Kubernetes in Docker, and CI to automatically run e2e tests across a common environment for a k8s application. To maintain consistency, we will automate the creation of this environment per pull request and run the test suite before deploying to production.

Optimized Resource Allocation in Kubernetes? Topology Manager is Here - Conor Nolan, Intel & Victor Pickard, Red Hat
To satisfy the resource demands of workloads, Kubernetes must be responsible for resources on the platform and the intricacies associated with them. The introduction of CPU Manager and Device Manager are two examples of K8s taking involved decisions for resource assignment. However, these two components act independently, which can lead to undesirable resource allocations most notable on a systems with multiple CPU Socket or NUMA Regions.

Under the guidance of SIG node, a new component is being introduced to Kubelet called Topology Manager, which will resolve this undesirable situation by enabling optimal resource allocation. This talk will introduce Topology Manager, how it works to solve these problems as well as the reasons behind introducing such a feature.

Production Multi-node Jobs with Gang Scheduling, K8s, GPUs and RDMA - Madhukar Korupolu & Sanjay Chatterjee, NVIDIA
With the growing scale of DL and ML applications, distributed execution of jobs across multiple nodes becomes increasingly critical -- to solve bigger problems faster -- as illustrated by the recent MLperf results. However running such workloads in a production K8s cluster shared by multiple jobs/users has several challenges.

In this talk, we’ll give an overview of this area -- including distributed Tensorflow, Pytorch, Horovod, MPI -- and the use of GPU nodes with NCCL and RDMA for accelerated performance. We’ll describe our end-to-end flow for multi-node jobs in K8s including gang scheduling, quotas, fairness and backfilling implemented in our custom scheduler for GPUs. Our cluster includes high-speed networking through RoCE and SR-IOV / Multus CNI. We’ll share our design choices, learnings and operational experience including failure handling, performance and telemetry.

20,000 Upgrades Later: Lessons From a Year of Managed Kubernetes Upgrades - Adam Wolfe Gordon, DigitalOcean
Upgrading to a new release is one of the most disruptive operations we regularly inflict on our Kubernetes clusters. There are multiple strategies for doing an upgrade, but they all require rescheduling workloads and restarting cluster components.

We started offering upgrades on our managed Kubernetes platform, DigitalOcean Kubernetes Service (DOKS), in May 2019. Since then, our customers have kicked off about 20,000 automated patch and minor release upgrades on their clusters. Most of those upgrades went well, but some didn't and we've learned a few things from the ones that went wrong.

In this talk we will share lessons from a year of automated Kubernetes upgrades: what we got right, what we got wrong, workloads that caused us trouble, and changes we've made to make the process smoother. We hope these lessons will help others avoid pain in their Kubernetes upgrades.

Virtual Cluster - A Practical Kubernetes Hard Multi-tenancy Solution - Fei Guo, Alibaba
Conventional, the concept of Kubernetes multi-tenancy is realized by namespaces. Tenants access controls are limited within tenant namespaces using RBAC rules. The Pod level isolation is primarily done using network policy.

This model faces various problems when applied in production since Kubernetes is far from tenancy-ready. For example:
1) APIServer is lack of tenant-aware flow control. A single tenant may generate large amount of concurrent traffic making APIServer unresponsive to other tenants;
2) Tenants cannot install customized CRDs which requires cluster scope permission;

We proposed Virtual Cluster solution to resolve the multi-tenancy problem from a different angle. Basically, every tenant will be assigned a dedicated K8s control plane. All tenant K8s shares a big super master. Virtual cluster is built based on CRDs. The entire solution is open sourced in Github.

Seccomp Security Profiles and You: A Practical Guide - Duffie Cooley, VMware
Have you wondered what a seccomp security profile is, and how it relates to Linux Capabilities?

Folks often dismiss seccomp profiles and Capabilities as a way of hardening applications as it is too difficult to determine what syscalls are in use by a given application.

In this session we will explore a couple of tools designed to make this more approachable.

Dockersl.im is an opensource project that can take a Dockerfile and an image and produce a smaller image containing only the necessary bits, a seccomp security profile derived from the system calls the application made while under test.

Inspektor Gadget is an opensource project by the folks at kinvolk that enables to make use of BPF to inspect a number of things about pods that are deployed. Providing better visibility into what pods are accessing from a syscall and filesystem perspective.

Is There a Place For Distributed Storage For AI/ML on Kubernetes? - Diane Feddema & Kyle Bader, Red Hat
Containerized machine learning workloads running on Kubernetes receive benefits such as portability, declarative configuration, less administrative toil, all with marginal performance impact. The best published results for performance sensitive machine learning workloads, e.g. MLPerf v0.6, were obtained by reading the datasets from local SSDs. While the MLPerf datasets fit comfortably on a single SSD, it’s a luxury not afforded to folks training models against petabyte scale datasets. We’ll share our experience running MLPerf training jobs in Kubernetes, against datasets stored by Kubernetes stateful storage services orchestrated by Rook. Highlights include the performance and scalability tradeoffs associated with local and open source distributed storage, and how machine learning formats like RecordIO and TFRecord provide performance utility and model validation flexibility.

Lesson Learned on Running Hadoop on Kubernetes - Chen Qiang, LinkedIn
LinkedIn operates one of the world’s largest Hadoop environments, with ~450PB used data, 2 billion files/blocks, and over 400K jobs/day. However, testing cluster features in an isolated fashion has been traditionally fairly difficult. Infra teams such as HDFS, YARN, and Azkaban often step on top of one another for testing new features in our existing test Hadoop clusters. Setting up a new test cluster requires coordination between hardware, infra, and security teams, usually taking weeks to months. We have recently extended Kubernetes’ usage to test Hadoop(HDFS/YARN) clusters, by deploying production-like Hadoop cluster on Kubernetes. This has reduced infra setup time from weeks down to minutes with no network, hardware dependencies, and enables critical infra/workflow teams to test new features on the fly.

A Journey Through Kubernetes Admission Controller Taxanomy - Morgan Bauer & Srinivas Brahmaroutu, IBM
Kubernetes admission controllers are plugins that govern and enforce how the cluster is used. They can be built-in to the APIServer, or webhooks that are customizable to your needs. Admission webhooks help you do some really cool stuff, there are two kinds of webhooks, validating and mutating. In this talk we will go thorough the taxonomy of Admission Controllers, providing examples of each type, and how to use them. There are many built-in to kubernetes, and they are optional to use. Others are webhooks that can be run external to the cluster. We will detail the differences between mutating and validating webhooks, and when to use each. During our talk we will examine the difficulties and complications and propose resolutions.

Multi-Tenant Clusters with Hierarchical Namespaces - Adrian Ludwin, Google
The multi-tenancy working group is developing new building blocks in Kubernetes to better support multi-tenant use cases, such as hosting multiple teams in large enterprises and enabling multi-single-tenant deployments in SaaS. Namespaces are one of the most important foundations of multi-tenancy in Kubernetes. In this talk, we introduce a new building block called Hierarchical Namespaces that allow policies like RBAC and Network Policies to be consistently inherited across trees of namespaces. Based on our experience working with customers, we believe this new technique will simplify namespace management in Enterprise and SaaS use cases. This talk will show how you can use hierarchical namespaces to safely and easily share your cluster across teams and deployments within an organization. Hierarchical Namespaces are an open source project currently incubating in the Multi-tenancy working group.

Monitoring GPUs at Scale for AI/ML and HPC Clusters - Bharti L Agrawal, NVIDIA
At Nvidia we have several large GPU K8s clusters for running deep learning training (AI/ML) workloads. On these clusters we need monitoring to support a range of user personas . First we have the end users (AI/ML researchers) who want to get an insight into how well their workloads used the GPUs and the system. Then we have the operations team who would like to monitor the general health of the cluster and be alerted in real time to any issues. Finally we have the stakeholders who would like to see the GPU utilization and saturation over time for capacity planning. These requirements cannot be satisfied by a standard “out of the box” setup.

In this presentation we will show how we used a combination of open source tools to address our requirements. We will discuss various deployment, maintenance, security and scale challenges we hit and how we resolved them for monitoring GPU data.

In-place Upgrade Noway! Blue/Green Your Way to a New Kubernetes Version - Ricardo Aravena, Rakuten
Since its introduction, Kubernetes has had a relentless pace of innovation and a significant release every three months. For an organization, it may be challenging to keep pace with new features and their Kubernetes clusters up to date. Furthermore, the constant change of the Kubernetes API + CRDs may be a barrier to minimizing downtime.

This session will showcase using different tools with automation to update the major version of your cluster using a blue/green approach. Can we take advantage of a GitOps approach using open-source tools like Flux and Keiko? How do we change manifests to support the new API? How can we verify and add more security to the upgrades?

The audience will come away with a pragmatic understanding of how to make use of different open-source tools and processes to make Kubernetes upgrades seamless with minimal to no downtime in production.

Making Compliance Cloud Native - Ann Wallace & Zeal Somani, Google
If you’re in a highly-regulated industry, you likely have compliance requirements which make it challenging to adopt containers. Traditional compliance frameworks such as PCI and ISO 27001 were written for traditional architectures and have not yet adapted to cloud-native technologies.

We’ll first discuss misconceptions that auditors believe about cloud-native technologies and architectures. Then, we will demonstrate how to meet compliance requirements – like segmentation, encryption, supply chain management, and monitoring – in a containerized environment, using our OSS K8S compliance starter kit. Lastly, we will share techniques for communicating these learnings with audit and compliance officers.

Attendees will come away from this talk with knowledge of how technologies like Kubernetes can actually make compliance easier and how to shift left security and compliance requirements.

Panel: Are Cloud Native 5G Core Network Functions (NFs) Truly Manageable & Secure? - Ramki Krishnan, VMware; Srini Addepalli, Intel; Heather Kirksey, The Linux Foundation; Tom Kivlin, Vodafone; & Balaji Ethirajulu, Ericsson
In the transition towards Cloud Native, 5G Core NFs has an interesting architectural mix of HTTP 2.0 and other network I/Fs.

In this panel, we first examine the various manageability/security/visibility challenges of the 5G Core NFs in K8S with 1) Multiple network I/Fs for high performance data plane NFs and for isolation for all NFs 2) Chaining of NFs that are distributed across K8S clusters.

While multi-cluster L7 Service Mesh (Istio, Linkerd etc.) seems to be a reasonable solution choice especially for HTTP-based functions, there are unique challenges posed by other NFs operation with other protocols and at lower layers. We will explore options such as an integrated Layer 2-7 service mesh approach leveraging open source efforts such as Open Virtual Network (OVN) to address these challenges - e.g. inter node/cluster secure communication using for Layer 7 TLS or Layer 2-4 IPSEC.

Going Beyond CI/CD with Prow - Leonardo Di Donato, Sysdig
One of the most untold secrets is how hard and important is to automate the whole set of workflows around the code, not only the testing phase. We were able to use the native Kubernetes CI/CD system - Prow - to solve CI/CD for Falco. Furthermore we discovered that Prow does much more than CI/CD! Join us to find out what! You will walk away with a deep technical knowledge of Prow and how we were able to implement internally so you can too.

We’ll see how to correctly setup and deploy Prow on a Kubernetes instance. How to link it to a bot account. How to hook Prow to GitHub organizations and repositories, how to establish an automated governance process for the Open Source by configuring multiple Prow plugins.

Finally the audience will learn how to create its own custom plugins in order to lint commit messages and code.

Go? Bash! Meet the Shell-operator - Andrey Klimentyev & Dmitry Stolyarov, Flant
While using Kubernetes, the need to automate our work is everpresent. Usually, the task boils to a simple pattern: subscribe to Kubernetes resource changes and acting upon them. In the simplest case, a ConfigMap creation will suffice. In the complex one, interaction with a Custom Resource might be required.

Most of the operations engineers know a scripting language (e.g., bash) and are familiar with the jq tool, which employs an indigenous paradigm of traversing JSON structures inspired by the functional programming paradigm.

A general-purpose programming language, without a doubt, provides tons of benefits, but do they not create a steep learning curve on the path to automating and extending Kubernetes?

This talk focuses on writing simple operators with the shell-operator, using a scripting language (bash) and jq, and justifies such an approach.

Hunting For New Particles Leveraging Legacy Infrastructure with Kubernetes - Clemens Lange, CERN
In the search for unknown particles in the CERN Large Hadron Collider’s particle collisions, billions of events need to be analysed. Even though large parts of CERN’s computing infrastructure are deployed using Kubernetes, physics analysis jobs are still being run on classical high throughput computing batch systems. While developing a fully cloud native computing approach, one still needs to have access to the ten-thousands of cores available on the legacy batch system to have sufficient resources for the data processing.

In this presentation, Clemens will demonstrate how complex physics analysis workflows that are written and scheduled using Kubernetes can make use of classical batch systems. The audience will also learn what complexity a realistic physics analysis can reach, and the important role that software containers and Kubernetes play in the context of open science.

Make Prometheus Use Less Memory and Restart Faster - Ganesh Vernekar, Grafana Labs
These days, the most common reason for a Prometheus server to run out of memory is an excessive amount of time series in the so called head block, the part of the internal TSDB with the freshest data, which has to be kept in memory prior to consolidation into a block on disk. A large head block leads to a long restart time because the head block has to be rebuilt from the write-ahead log. On large servers, the restart time can be 10 minutes or more. Since restarts happen regularly to upgrade the binary or to change flags, the resulting interruption of sample collection is problematic. Even worse: After an OOM crash, the same replaying from the WAL has to happen, often causing another OOM crash immediately. Ganesh Vernekar will talk about the work started in late 2019 to persist parts of the head block earlier, thereby reducing both the memory footprint and the restart time.

Help! Please Rescue Not-ready Nodes Immediately - Xiaoyu Zhang, Alibaba & Di Xu, Ant Financial
For a Kubernetes cluster, nodes are crucial to make pods running properly. So it is indispensable to monitor nodes status and detect node problems. Node problem detector (NPD), an open source project in Kubernetes community, is a good answer to address this issue. Nowadays NPD has already been well accepted and widely used in production environments.

Actually identifying the problem is only the first step. What we need to do next is to handle those problems and rescue the nodes.

In this talk, we will list common problems and share how we establish rules to decide whether a node is ready or not and how to fix them if recoverable. Moreover, we will introduce some use scenarios on how we make a 99.9% uptime guarantee with ten thousand nodes in a single cluster. We will  share some experience on how to recover the nodes within 10 minutes as well.

Kata Containers + Cloud-Hypervisor: Virtualization for Cloud Native - Samuel Ortiz, Intel
At KubeCon NA 2017, the speakers introduced the Kata Containers project to the public for the first time. After two years of development and community collaboration, we have made containers running in virtualized sandboxes a commodity. On the other hand, virtualization has become more lightweight and container-friendly.

At the beginning of 2020, Kata project is kicking off the 2.0 dev-cycle, and the idea behind it is “virtualization for Cloud Native”. The new open-source cloud-hypervisor will be a cornerstone for the goal -- not only by helping Cloud-Native infrastructures run better with hardware-virtualized isolation but also by pushing the virtualization tech forward:
- Share resources across sandboxes but keep the security boundary clear.
- Provision resources to sandboxes on-demand and promptly.
- The collaboration between host user-space tool, VMM, and the guest kernel.

Capacity-aware Dynamic Volume Provisioning For LVM Local Storage - Kazuhito Matsuda & Satoru Takeuchi, Cybozu
This session presents a summary of the existing Kubernetes features to use local storage devices (e.g. hostPath and local persistent volumes) in first, then introduces a novel CSI plugin named TopoLVM.

Applications that can replicate data themselves (e.g. Elasticsearch, MySQL, Ceph) are promising users of local storage because of their needs for lower prices and higher I/O performance storage. Although existing ways enable to use of local storage, the following desired features are not provided yet:

- Raw block volume
- Capacity-aware dynamic provision
- Online volume resizing

To satisfy these features, the authors created a novel CSI plugin named TopoLVM. It dynamically creates logical volumes of LVM and extends the standard Pod scheduler to consider volume group capacity of each node. Besides, it intends to support more features including online resizing.
