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.

Deploying K10 with Red Hat OpenShift OAuth Proxy

At Kasten, our mission is to dramatically simplify operational management of stateful cloud-native applications. Kasten’s K10, our enterprise-grade data management platform for Kubernetes backup and DR delivers on this mission by helping our customers protect their cloud-native applications against accidental or malicious data loss. As part of this mission to protect applications, we take security very seriously. In today’s multi-tenant Kubernetes clusters, security is critical for safety. This is why at Kasten we have built multiple ways of authenticating a user so that fine-grained role-based access control (RBAC) can be used with it. While we will cover our RBAC support in a later post, this article will list some of these authentication methods available in K10 with a focus on Red Hat OpenShift’s OAuth proxy. Read more →
