An Armful of Clusters: Run Kubernetes Workloads More Efficiently and Sustainably

Presented by

Carlos Arilla Navarro, Technical Product Marketing, Giant Swarm

About this talk

Arm processors are disrupting the computer industry on many fronts. First, they took the mobile industry and now they are storming PCs and data centers. With an excellent performance per watt ratio and affordable prices, they look like an excellent choice for sustainability and efficiency. Migrating your Kubernetes clusters to Arm processors is a common way to take advantage of these benefits, but there are several considerations and obstacles that you need to be prepared to overcome: Should you choose pure or hybrid Arm clusters with x86 clusters? - Can Kubernetes run smoothly on Arm machines? - Are your apps ready to run on Arm processors? - Are your build pipelines ready to generate the multi-architecture images? - Is your registry ready to manage several architectures for the same images? In this talk, we help you run your workloads in a more efficient and sustainable way on the Arm architecture by using different solutions and strategies with open-source applications, such as Harbor. You will also hear practical tips and tricks about: - How to take advantage of the compatibility of different languages or technologies. - How to adequately build pipelines to generate images for different architectures. - How to properly store and use the images. - What happens when one or more of my apps can’t run on Arm? About the speaker Carlos has more than 15 years of experience in IT, currently focused on the cloud native ecosystem.
