How to Build for Portability

Presented by

Ben Cole, TechTarget (Host) and Cloud Solutions Engineering Team, Akamai

About this talk

By taking advantage of portability and open-source tools, cloud-native development enables developers to make decisions on where to deploy and move their workloads to maximize performance and cost-efficiency. Portability gives you the ability to migrate your applications, workloads, data, and other resources to the cloud environment or cloud provider of your choice. The second installment in a new three-part video series, Building in the Cloud: The Shift to Cloud Native, is about expanding your knowledge of the key technologies involved in creating portable workloads, notably Kubernetes, an open-source platform to run applications in containers. In Episode 2: How to Build for Portability, Akamai’s cloud engineering team explains how to use open-source tools and details best practices. What to expect in Episode 2: • Cement your understanding of Kubernetes and Knative, and the relationship between the two technologies • Get to grips with the components of a Kubernetes cluster, such as the ingress controller, object storage, event streaming, and observability and monitoring Why watch Episode 2? • Discover more about the Knative Serving and Knative Eventing components, and the use of brokers and triggers • Learn about best practices and which open-source tools to use when building out your portable infrastructure • Gain the knowledge and confidence to deploy your first Kubernetes cluster Coming next: • Building in the Cloud: The Shift to Cloud Native, Episode 3: Moving to a Distributed Cloud Approach
