Kubernetes is all the rage, and there are a ton of tools to deploy it. There are installers, cloud managed setups, full distributions like Pivotal Container Service (PKS), etc. but there’s always the question - beyond the software aspect, what do I need to build and provide for a successful container orchestration environment? Host types? What about storage? Networking? Load balancing?
Attendees of this webinar will walk away with an understanding of the considerations when choosing:
● compute platforms to run containers, along with storage systems (what is CSI anyways?);
● networking and load balancing.
Brian McClain, Assoc. Principal Product Marketing Manager & Tyler Britten, Sr. Principal Technologist, Pivotal
As the popularity of microservices continues to rise, so does the need for an efficient means of intercommunication. Features such as service discovery, client-side load balancing, and circuit breakers become invaluable tools as the complexity of your landscape grows. Thus, the rising popularity of the service mesh as means of delivering those capabilities.
While this technology space is still young, Istio and Envoy have already become the tools that many use to solve these problems. The Pivotal Application Service (PAS) integration with these solutions introduced weighted routing and guaranteed service identity—and now we’re bringing these features to Pivotal Container Service (PKS) via the new Pivotal Service Mesh.
In this webinar, we’ll explore why a service mesh matters and how Pivotal Service Mesh works, and we’ll give you a sneak peak into its future.
Over the last few years, software containers have become a big deal. According to Gartner, "by 2023, Kubernetes will be deployed in more than 80% of all on-premises private cloud and cloud-inspired environments, up from less than 10% today, requiring I&O to acquire operational competencies."
The wide adoption of containers has been primarily driven by developers. But to see real success, you need to work across both development and operations teams to ensure the environment in which these containers run can operate securely and at scale.
Join Pivotal Platform Architect, Adam Fowler, for a webinar where we’ll explore how a platform offering, layered on top of containers, enables developers to build and deploy applications at speed and scale, thereby increasing productivity and product time to market.

How do you avoid a messy jumble of configuration management? First, you can rule out holding settings internally to the app. Hard coding values in a compiled artifact limits almost everything about an application’s ability to scale. Attaching a .config file to each instance of the application is also not reasonable. (Yes, your externalized config values from the artifact.) But you’re no better off with managing and updating things.
This class will visit the Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration package and the many options it offers .NET Core developers. We’ll cover everything from using the default providers (and what’s going on under the covers) to custom providers implemented in Steeltoe. There are many stops in between where developers can achieve the best mix of business requirements and technical needs.
Attend this class to learn the following:
● How to use external configurations with Spring Config using Steeltoe
● Best practices for externalizing configuration
● How to get the most from Spring Config without adding complexity

As the old adage goes, “you can’t manage what you can’t measure.” But what if the measurements are part of the problem? After all, you can move the needle on what you measure, but there may be unanticipated outcomes. When it comes to transforming how an organization delivers software, how you measure success also needs to change.
Despite a marked adoption of agile development practices in the last five years, Forrester Research found that developers haven’t made much progress at delivering software faster. What’s the disconnect? Forrester has found a number of interrelated factors behind organizations that outperform in software delivery. One of them is metrics.
Join this webinar with special guests Jeffrey Hammond, Forrester Research Analyst, and Patrick Feeney, Senior Director of IT Digital Products at Healthcare Services Corporation (HCSC), to learn:
● The types of metrics high-performance software teams are using
● Which metrics are counterproductive to improving software delivery
● How HCSC has used metrics to manage software delivery change
● Which roles should be using which metrics and when

Join Dan Baskette and Jared Ruckle for a view into Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) 2.6 capabilities with demos and expert Q&A. We’ll review the latest features for Pivotal’s flagship app platform, including:
CUSTOM SIDECAR PROCESSES (BETA)
In Pivotal Application ServiceⓇ 2.6 (PAS), developers can run custom sidecar processes in the same container as their application. This simplifies development for all kinds of “wire” use cases, including proxy forwarding, client-side load balancing, timeouts, and retries.
MULTI-CLOUD CONTINUOUS DELIVERY WITH SPINNAKER
PCF now integrates nicely with the most popular CD tool, Spinnaker. Spinnaker 1.14 now supports several advanced CD scenarios with PCF. As a result, large development teams can more easily deploy to production to improve outcomes. Use Spinnaker with PAS as well as Enterprise PKSⓇ. (This integration is backed by community support.)
NEW PERMISSIONS MODEL IN CONCOURSE FOR PCF (coming soon) Concourse for PCF 5.2 will include a powerful new permissions model to better segment access to build pipelines. The new release will add compatibility with CredHub for secrets management as well.
MULTI-DATACENTER REPLICATION CAPABILITIES FOR MySQL (coming soon) MySQL for PCF 2.7 will add multi-DC replication capabilities as a beta feature. This will offer more stability and scalability for your database apps.
Digital transformation includes replatforming applications to streamline release cycles, improve availability, and manage apps and services at scale. But many enterprises are afraid to take the first step because they don’t know where to start. In this webinar, Rohit will provide a step-by-step guide that covers:
● How to find high-value modernization projects within your application portfolio
● Easy tools and techniques to minimally change applications in preparation for replatforming
● How to choose the platform with the right level of abstraction for your app
● Examples that show how Java EE Websphere applications can be deployed to Pivotal Cloud Foundry

Michael Klishin, RabbitMQ Software Engineer, and Karl Nilsson, RabbitMQ Software Engineer
Recent releases of RabbitMQ have made the most popular open-source message broker even more rock solid. The team has made it easier to deploy and easier to operate from Day 2 on. As a de facto standard for message-based architectures, this is great news for teams building microservices and other distributed applications.
But let’s face it: not everyone is running the latest version and taking advantage of these new stability and operational features. Now the next major version (3.8) is shipping and it has some breakthrough features for reliability and scaling. Are you ready?
Join Pivotal’s Michael Klishin and Karl Nilsson, RabbitMQ Software Engineers, as they share what’s new in RabbitMQ 3.8. You’ll learn:
● How making RabbitMQ persistent and fault tolerant is evolving from mirrored queues to quorum queues
● What mixed-version clusters are and how they simplify upgrades
● How RabbitMQ 3.8 continues to make deploying and operating RabbitMQ easier
● What’s available in terms of OAuth 2.0 support, monitoring improvements, and more
● What features are in development for future versions and minor releases
The emergence of cloud-native technologies—and immutable infrastructures more specifically—is changing the security risk landscape and offering a new perspective on security management.
In this talk, we’ll explore the benefits of software architectures based on immutable infrastructures and how mature practices can help reduce the security risk—without spending on additional layers of security solutions.
Specifically, we’ve seen how teams focusing on delivering the “3 Rs” of cloud-native security (repairing, rebuilding, and rotating) in their platform are shifting the needle of vulnerability management. Modern software’s ability for zero-downtime patching, periodical rebuilding, and short-lived secrets provide a massive reduction in security risks, allowing security and resilience practitioners to focus on added-value activities.
As security is now operated throughout the IT organisation rather than in silos, we’ll extend our discussion to see how outcome-driven metrics can help create alignment across teams and be a measure for security management in a collaborative culture environment.
Join us for this webinar to learn:
- The native security benefits of immutable infrastructure
- The 3Rs of cloud-native security: repaving regularly, repairing immediately, and rotating secrets frequently
- Key security metrics to be used in DevOps practices
The cliché we all recite is that technology isn't the problem, culture is. Put another way: if the hardware and software are fine and fresh, it must be the meatware that smells. Come hear several de-funking recipes from the world’s largest companies whose meat now smells proper.
Most large organisations struggle to deliver consistent, well-designed software to their customers. The usual schedule and budget delays persist and the resulting software is often lackluster at best. There are all sorts of tools and patterns like DevOps, lean product, and cloud-native that can make software better, but most organisations struggle to change the people side of the software stack.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss:
• How established organisations can learn to think of deliveries in terms of “products” instead of “projects”
•How DevOps and cloud platforms enable a product mindset
•The tactics and organisational structures that large organisations are using to improve their software
All of this is based on case studies and interviews with the world’s largest organisations over the past five years, with each point grounded in real-world examples and experience.
References and examples shared during this session are based on my book Monolithic Transformation (O'Reilly, Feb 2019).

As the adoption of Kubernetes expands rapidly, organisations must get up to speed with a powerful and flexible but complex container orchestration system. Understanding how the configuration of Kubernetes clusters and the configuration of your workloads interact is important when setting up your platform for success.
This webinar will cover what you need to consider to get your different types of workloads up and running.
Join us to learn:
•What you need to think about before you configure your clusters and how Pivotal Container Service (PKS) can help
•How to configure your clusters for different types of workloads
•How to deploy those workloads so that they survive Kubernetes lifecycle events
•How to keep your workloads up and running so they can survive upgrades
Organisations adopt a multi-cloud approach for many reasons—regulatory interest, price arbitrage, flexibility, choice, data sovereignty, varying business requirements—the list goes on.
However, from our conversations with several CIOs, we’ve learned that avoiding cloud lock-in is a primary driver behind a multi-cloud strategy. So what is cloud lock-in and what can you do to avoid being locked in?
Attend this webinar as we examine the topic of cloud lock-in and how to operate in multiple clouds, specifically looking at:
- The commercial, technological capability, process, and developer experience aspects of cloud lock-in
- Mitigating approaches for dealing with cloud lock-in
- Four key aspects to effectively executing a multi-cloud strategy
- Common multi-cloud patterns
Ah, the mainframe. Peel back many transactional business applications at any enterprise and you’ll find a mainframe application under there. It’s often where the crown jewels of the business’ data and core transactions are processed. The tooling for these applications is dated and new code is infrequent, but moving off is seen as risky. No one. Wants. To. Touch. Mainframes.
But mainframe applications don’t have to be the electric third rail. Modernizing, even pieces of those mainframe workloads into modern frameworks on modern platforms, has huge payoffs. Developers can gain all the productivity benefits of modern tooling. Not to mention the scaling, security, and cost benefits.
So, how do you get started modernizing applications off a mainframe? Join Rohit Kelapure, Consulting Practice Lead at Pivotal, as he shares lessons from projects with enterprises to move workloads off of mainframes. You’ll learn:
● How to decide what to modernize first by looking at business requirements AND the existing codebase
● How to take a test-driven approach to minimize risks in decomposing the mainframe application
● What to use as a replacement or evolution of mainframe schedulers
● How to include COBOL and other mainframe developers in the process to retain institutional knowledge and defuse project detractors
● How to replatform mainframe applications to the cloud leveraging a spectrum of techniques
