  • Together We Sink or Swim: Plugging the BootHole Recorded: Dec 10 2020 63 mins
    J. Michael, Principal Researcher, Eclypsium; D. Kiper, Software Eng., Oracle; C. Coulson, Sr Software Eng., Canonical
    In modern PC-based platforms, UEFI Secure Boot is used to protect the integrity of the boot process by ensuring that only authorized code is allowed to run during this critical time. If unauthorized code can run during the boot process, the operating system itself and the security guarantees it tries to provide can no longer be trusted. In April 2020, a security vulnerability in the GRUB2 bootloader allowing arbitrary code execution was disclosed to the GRUB2 maintainers and a number of other affected parties. Although the fix to the code itself was simple, only one line, complications with both the UEFI Secure Boot implementation and ecosystem necessitated a complex, industry-wide mitigation effort. Revocation, new shim review process, additional vulnerabilities found and fixed, and more. We'll discuss the problems we encountered and overcame as well as areas for future improvement from the perspective of the security researchers, the GRUB upstream maintainers, and the Linux distributions.

  • SQL Server on Kubernetes, the next frontier Recorded: Dec 10 2020 63 mins
    Carlos Robles, Consultant at Slalom & Founder at DBA Mastery
    Data professionals were caught by surprise when IT shops started to introduce VMs for SQL Server workloads 15 years ago. As it usually happens with new technologies, there was some hesitation at the beginning; however, it was a quick turnaround until they become the standard today. So, you may ask yourself today, are containers going down the same road? Do I have to be prepared for this containers / Kubernetes thing?

    The answer is yes! Containers are not necessarily a replacement to VMs or whatsoever. In reality, they will make an excellent addition to your technology stack that could help you to solve software problems.

    This session will provide you best practices, methods, and practical solutions to help you manage your SQL Server workloads on Kubernetes hosted in Ubuntu whether on-premises using MicroK8s or cloud services like AKS.

    You will be able to use Kubernetes to perform near to zero downtime version upgrades, set up high availability, and accomplish agile database deployments at the end of this session.

  • Managed open source for Financial Services Recorded: Dec 7 2020 26 mins
    Kris Sharma, Financial Sector Product Manager at Canonical
    Open source software is everywhere and has become a critical part of the modern economy. It has been estimated that open source software components constitute 80-90% of any given piece of modern software. More and more financial institutions are building enterprise applications using open source components. The real draw of open source for most financial institutions today, is the ability to explore and innovate with new technologies and to easily scale the solutions that deliver real competitive advantage.

    Open source ecosystem is growing rapidly and with widespread adoption comes its own set of challenges. Financial institutions are realising the overhead of open source technology estate maintenance and day-N operational challenges. One of the ways to address these challenges is for organisations to offload the complexity and time-consuming tasks of day to day operations and maintenance of open source applications to managed service providers.

    This webinar aims to answer some of the key questions faced today by financial institutions across the globe in their open source adoption journey.

    - Why is open source the key to agility and innovation ?
    - What are the benefits and challenges of the open source ecosystem?
    - How managed open source can help financial institutions deliver business value?

    Watch this webinar to understand how financial institutions are leveraging managed service for open source and gaining freedom from application maintenance and day to day operations to adapt, innovate and transform at speed.

  • Telco at the edge by Canonical Recorded: Dec 3 2020 18 mins
    A. Van Huyssteen: Director, FEng Telco EMEA-APAC; T. Kurek: Product Manager
    Canonical's aim for telco solutions at the edge is serving compute near the consumer.And when we talk about consumers, it's your consumers. You are a service provider, your consumers are either your enterprises, or your mobile end users, or your CPE device users or something along those lines.

    Edge, or micro-clouds, are like clouds except they are a lot less nodes or a lot less compute cycles. You might not want to spend as much money to put additional overhead nodes there to do things like control plane overhead, or an SDN, or an additional component that consumes some of those compute cycles.

    So how do we solve this? Hear about Canonical's zero ops and bulletproof highly-distributed micro-clouds. Operationally, we enable you through the use of toolsets, which we describe in this presentation, to have the access you need to your API anywhere at any time, in order to make the deployments of your relevant sites repeatable; whether you do it once or 50 times or a thousand times over. And to make sure that the outcome is exactly the same.

    Hear more details from our engineers themselves.
