What to Expect at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU Virtual 2021

What to Expect at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU Virtual 2021

It’s official, it has been over one year since my last in-person tradeshow. I can’t say I miss the flights or the lunch lines, but I yearn for the days where I can join my fellow technologists face-to-face for a whirlwind week of catching up and hearing straight from the field, the good, bad, and the ugly feedback, then the community meetups where we get much the same but we also get to present, share and learn with other. The good news is that education does not stop for anything and as more virtual events occur organizers are continuously improving to bring the closest thing to a live interactive event experience they can to the comfort of our laptops. Next on the docket is KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe Virtual, May 4 – May 7, 2021. The trade show is on track to be a record-setting event, gathering thousands of cloud-native contributors, adopters, maintainers, and technologists to learn about all things Kubernetes and cloud-native. Before you sign in, here’s what to look out for and also what fun things to do to interact with the community during the event. Read more →
Working with Kubernetes and Terraform Part 3: Installing Kasten using Terraform

Working with Kubernetes and Terraform Part 3: Installing Kasten using Terraform

In this three-part series, I will explain how to use Kubernetes (K8s) and Terraform (TF) together to set up a Kubernetes cluster, manage applications and install Kasten. We will of course keep data management best practices in mind for every step. Installing Kasten in the cluster is also a great example of how Terraform can be used when managing cloud resources outside the cluster. Read more →

Cross-Cluster Application Migration and Disaster Recovery for AWS EKS using Kasten K10

Cross-Cluster Application Migration and Disaster Recovery for AWS EKS using Kasten K10

Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) is a fully managed Kubernetes service provided by AWS. It's a managed Kubernetes service where you don't have to maintain or create the cluster control plane or underlying infrastructure. EKS runs a cluster control plane across multiple AZs to ensure it maintains high availability and automatically replaces unhealthy instances. It works with different AWS services to provide scalability and security for your application. Read more →
