  • Containerized applications running in OpenShift need controls to access resources just like human users. Best-practices such as zero trust, least privilege, authentication, authorization, segregation of duties, and audit must apply equally to containerized applications as they do for humans. This session explores how developers can build secure, trusted containerized applications, without the over...

  • To run on Kubernetes your apps are packaged in Docker containers. How do you answer questions about the containers you're deploying to Kubernetes? Those containers necessarily contain lots of other packages created by many different teams within and outside your organization. You need to know what is in them, if they are of the quality you demand, and if they are secure. You can do this while givi...

  • Many functions in Kubernetes are implemented using controllers that watch the events on the API objects and take appropriate actions as a result. This talk explores the use of external controllers for storage orchestration, particularly for capabilities that are experimental, vendor-specific, or not yet supported by the existing Volume Plugin API. As a case study, this talk presents Trident (https...

  • The Automation Broker works in conjunction with the Kubernetes Service Catalog to make services and applications easily deployable. An end user selects a service to be provisioned, selects a “plan” that describes the level of service (small, large, paid, free, persistent, ephemeral, etc), and then provides any required parameters. In this scenario, Helm charts can […] The post Automating Helm Char...

  • Introduction A highly-available deployment of OpenShift needs at least two load balancers: One to load balance the control plane (the master API endpoints) and one for the data plane (the application routers). In most on-premise deployments, we use appliance-based load balancers (such as F5 or Netscaler). The architecture looks like the following: In this architecture, […] The post An Open Source ...
