Do We Need to Change How We Define the Data Center?

Presented by

Nick Chase, Director of Technical Marketing and Developer Relations and Rick Pugh, Senior Product Manager

About this talk

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? Join Mirantis' Rick Pugh, Senior Product Manager and Nick Chase, Director of Technical Marketing and Developer Relations, for some takes on cost-analyzing a "DIY" multi-cloud Kubernetes strategy, and strategies for cost- and risk-mitigation.
