Simplify the Kubernetes User Experience with Mirantis

Kubernetes has earned a reputation for complexity, sharp edges and a steep learning curve. This has impeded adoption in production and productivity in development.

Mirantis is investing and committing to making Kubernetes infrastructure easier to consume and operate in any environment, using our container management software: Container Cloud, and the world’s most popular Kubernetes IDE: Lens.

During this session you will learn how Mirantis Container Cloud automates the lifecycle of Kubernetes clusters across public and private cloud environments, and we will walk through how Lens provides a responsive, productive and enjoyable user experience to the Kubernetes API anywhere you need it.

--

At this session, Steven will go through some cluster deployment scenarios using the Cloud Manager GUI, CLI and API, and use Lens to connect and deploy to multiple clusters, deploy applications, and visualize the state of resources in the Kubernetes API.

  • How We Made Our App Onboarding So Simple Our Devs Can't Get It Wrong May 12 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Laurent Verbièse, Service Manager and Florent Carré, Cloud Infrastructure Specialist at Société Générale
    You know from experience that just because you create a good foundation for your developers doesn't mean they're going to use it. Instead we so often see wasted time and duplicated effort, or worse, security issues that stem from bad choices.

    To prevent this problem, onboarding an application into your process or architecture has to be so ridiculously easy that developers won't think twice about using it.

    For us at Societe Generale, that meant doing away with the confusion of a giant centralized CI/CD system and providing a templated CI/CD system for developers, giving them everything they need to get started immediately -- including access to base containers and other resources.

    In this talk, we will show how we managed to create an internal cloud platform that makes it easy for developers to:

    Add their code to clusters via a simple API
    Make use of existing container images without having to keep track of tiny details
    Get training, help, and support
    Create environments secured by default
    Provide secure networking via policies and other techniques
    Ensure that their applications comply with governance requirements

    You will leave this talk with an understanding of how to streamline and simplify your application onboarding process so that more of your developers will make use of container and cluster resources -- the right way.
  • How FinServ can optimize IT spend when volatility is the "new normal" May 5 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Chris Price, Director of Engineering
    Dynamic, sometimes-violent changes in transaction volume and unpredictable, external (and internal) security threats are key concerns for financial services. If your applications need to perform well and securely in volatile conditions, while also enabling efficiencies in hardware and service utilization.
    On May 5th at 11:00am EST, we are hosting and presenting a webinar: How FinServ can reduce risk and optimize IT spend when volatility is the "new normal".

    Register today to learn the following:
    - Designing for failure: why conventional software falls over in volatile conditions. Lessons GameStop "hodlers" can teach us. The high cost of overprovisioning.
    - Cloud Native Exchange: How it works, and why it doesn't fall over.
    How containers, microservice design patterns, and Kubernetes work together to gracefully manage volatile demand and security threats to applications.
    - Why and how (much) more-efficient on-premises hardware and public cloud utilization, (significantly) reduced operations overhead, and (broad and deep) risk mitigation can result from implementing cloud native IT tools and best-practices.
    Challenges, solutions, and frequently-asked questions
    - Keeping up with the move to Cloud Native

    You have choices- so know the questions to ask: The who, what, when, where and why for cloud native technology on public and private clouds.

  • Why the World Still Needs Private Clouds Recorded: Jan 28 2021 61 mins
    Jay Lyman, Principal Analyst at 451 Research, John Allwright, VP at Mirantis, Mayank Kapoor, VP at Reliance Jio
    The Why and How of Going Cloud-Native with Kubernetes and OpenStack On-Premises

    The IT market is all moving to the public cloud. Or so you’d think, based on the volume of marketing and conference talks about the subject. Yet many companies are realizing that for various reasons including security/compliance, location control, and cost at scale, deploying workloads on-premises, often in a “private cloud” is their preferred option. What are the factors at play when considering a move to public cloud or even a repatriation on-premises? What are your on-premises technical options if you still want cloud-native, self-service agility?

    Join Mirantis’ John Allwright, with special guests Mayank Kapoor of Reliance Jio and Jay Lyman of 451 Research, for a virtual roundtable where we will discuss these questions as well as:

    - The current state of the private cloud market
    - Business drivers and use cases for private cloud
    - Best practices for realizing the full benefits of on-premises cloud infrastructure
  • 4 Pillars to Ship Code Faster Recorded: Dec 3 2020 58 mins
    Mirantis' Shaun O'Meara, Global Field CTO and Head of Product, and John Jainschigg, Senior Technical Marketing Manager
    Agility is essential: businesses want to deliver features faster and optimize applications quickly to changing conditions. However, it’s hard to ship code fast while wrangling complexity and specifics across multiple infrastructures.

    IT teams are building strategies around containers. We believe there are four pillars needed to create a successful plan:

    1. Choice: Use your favorite tools and frameworks, avoid OS and cloud platform lock-in
    2. Simplicity – Use fewer tools to gain speed while lowering your learning curve
    3. Security: Focus on getting code to production faster, while reducing risk
    4. Consistency - One pane of glass, one point of integration, one security/policy/compliance schema, and one model for building automation across your organization and multi-cloud

    In this Talk, Mirantis' Shaun O'Meara, Global Field CTO and Head of Product, and John Jainschigg, Senior Technical Marketing Manager, will discuss and demonstrate how Dev and IT can gain choice without losing simplicity, security, and consistency -- and how the right tools let you have all this, and hybrid/multi-cloud too.
