  • Defining a Kubernetes that just works, anywhere Aug 5 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Adam Parco, CTO at Mirantis, and Mikko Viitanen, Senior Product Manager at k8sproject.io
    K0S is engineered as a modern take on 'lightweight' k8s: with the goal of deploying very simply, as a single binary, in a huge range of configurations on any hardware or device, from datacenters to IoT.

    In this webinar, Adam Parco, CTO, and Mikko Viitanen, Senior Product Manager at k8sproject.io describe and demonstrate how k0s squares the circle, delivering lightness, simplicity, and universality in ways distinctly different from today's leading 'small' k8s distros.
  • Accelerating the inner loop of container and Kubernetes development Jul 21 2021 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Miska Kaipiainen, VP of Engineering and Lee Namba, Product Manager, at Mirantis
    Kubernetes developers work in a multi-layer iterative model that combines container and configuration development and testing. How does this model differ from classic software development? What new tools and techniques help to make it smoother, simpler, faster, and safer?

    Join Miska Kaipiainen, VP of Engineering, and Lee Namba, Product Manager, of Mirantis for a roundtable discussion with Kubernetes developers, sharing details of their evolving open source toolkits and toolchains for K8S and container development.
  • The End of Open Source? Jul 15 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Shaun O’Meara, Global Field CTO, Adam Parco, CTO, and Chris Price, Director of Engineering at Mirantis
    The economics of open source are changing in ways that threaten its historic value to users. Important independent projects are underfunded and understaffed, leading to crises of quality and undermining governance. Big companies are moving in on projects and making (in some cases, dubious) moves to monetize, sometimes influencing the utility and trustworthiness of widely-depended-upon upstream versions, and/or introducing new lock-in factors.

    How can we fix this? Join Shaun O’Meara, Global Field CTO, Adam Parco, CTO, and Chris Price, Director of Engineering, for a survey of the state of popular open source projects, the forces and trends impacting them, and a discussion of funding methods and governance models for ensuring open source project independence, trust, and software quality in the future.
  • How To Share A Kubernetes Cluster Securely through Lens Spaces Jul 7 2021 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Edward Ionel, Growth Lead for OSS Projects
    Setting up a Kubernetes service has become relatively easy, whether on-premise or in public cloud services. However, giving secure access to developers can be a painful process involving cluster certificates, access management systems, complex identity management, networking setup, and firewalls.

    Cluster admins want a much simpler, more automated solution that makes it easy to provide cluster access while continuing to leverage their existing RBAC to developers and their teams -- quickly, consistently, automatically, and securely, for multiple clusters, running behind different identity provider platforms and network setups.

    Join us on July 7th to learn how you can easily share Kubernetes clusters securely through Lens, the world’s most popular Kubernetes IDE. Lens, an open source free technology, works with any CNCF certified k8s distro. Lens empowers developers and operators to easily monitor real-time events, debug and deploy applications within their Kubernetes clusters effortlessly.

    In this demo-focused Webinar, Team Lens will showcase how to share a Kubernetes cluster securely through Lens Spaces - a cloud-based enhancement brought to Lens.

    In this demo rich webinar, we will discuss how to:

    - Securely share a Kubernetes cluster via Lens Spaces
    - Access Cloud Native resource through your Catalog
    - Build workflows via the Hotbar

    Speaker: Edward Ionel
    Bio: Edward Ionel is the growth lead for OSS projects at Mirantis. Edward works directly with our end users to seek out the pain points within Kubernetes to help streamline developer and operator initiatives. Focused on identifying growth opportunities for Mirantis OSS technologies.
  • The value of Kubernetes as a substrate for complex software Jun 30 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Shaun O'Meara, Global Field CTO and Artem Andreev, Product Manager for Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes
    Kubernetes is a powerful framework for keeping applications alive and lifecycle-managing them smoothly. At Mirantis, we've spent the past several years pushing this idea towards its limits, by turning Kubernetes into a home for OpenStack -- an extremely complex (and historically, reputedly fragile) open source IaaS framework. The result is Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes: a highly-available, k8s-operator-monitored, rapidly-scalable, non-disruptively updateable OpenStack that runs great, and confers new resilience benefits on its own VM workloads.

    In this webinar, Artem Andreev, Product Manager for Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes, and Shaun O'Meara, Global Field CTO, will share learnings and techniques gleaned from building MOS to help developers take the short, straight-line path to using Kubernetes as a substrate to reduce costs, risks, and uncertainty around "big software."
  • Understanding Kubernetes, Part 3 Jun 24 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Nick Chase, Mirantis, Director, Technical Marketing and Developer Relations
    Any production-level Kubernetes application is going to involve more than just stateless containers floating around, so by popular request, the next webinar in our "Understanding Kubernetes" series will teach you what you need to both understand and work with storage in a Kubernetes cluster. You'll learn about different types of persistent and ephemeral storage, and even how to create an application that doesn't lose its state when the container gets replaced. You'll learn about:

    The types of storage Kubernetes recognizes
    How to work with storage on the actual host
    How to work with external storage
    How new drivers get added to Kubernetes
    How to run stateful applications such as databases on Kubernetes

    Join us as we prepare you for applications that move beyond the "toys" of simple examples.
  • Do we need to change how we define the datacenter? Jun 23 2021 4:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    Rick Pugh, Senior Product Manager, Mirantis
    Containerization of applications has given us more choice as to where we can run our applications, allowing us to take advantage of multiple different infrastructure providers and develop truly hybrid cloud applications. However, this comes at the cost of higher complexity and more systems to learn. The idea of what a datacenter is also becoming more abstract. As a result we need to be able to better define where our resources are and how we access them. What's the real cost of maintaining multiple channels of automation to support this kind of effort? What are some of the risks? And how can you make life simpler?
  • Container Security Top 5: Kubernetes In The Wild Recorded: Jun 2 2021 66 mins
    Bryan Langston, Senior Solutions Architect, Mirantis and David Belcher, Associate Principal Consultant, Synopsys

  • The Future of OpenStack: Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes Recorded: Apr 29 2021 59 mins
    Shaun O'Meara, Field CTO and Oleksii Kolodiazhnyi, Systems Architect at Mirantis
    Mirantis Cloud Platform has solved some — but not all — of the challenges of maintaining, lifecycle-managing, and updating conventional OpenStack clusters. Customers tell us, however, that the experience of working with OpenStack, while better than with old-school manual and scripted deployments, is still challenging and sometimes labor-intensive.

    To that end, Mirantis has now introduced Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes, which hosts containerized OpenStack, using Kubernetes as a substrate. Traditionally fragile OpenStack components are now containerized services, managed and kept alive by Kubernetes native orchestration — with the cluster state continually re-converged to optimum by Kubernetes operators.

    Plus, it's easy to upgrade — even non-disruptively to running VMs. Existing Mirantis Cloud Platform customers can see exactly how the process of moving to Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes works.

  • 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.
