Declarative Chain to Kubernetes Multi Clusters for Automation of HA Workloads.

  • Presented by Alex Barchiesi from CERN, Matteo Di Fazio & Marco Lorini fromConsortium GARR.
  • What can you expect to learn?
    • From A to Z of the Kubernetes cluster federation on top of a declarative setup of a multi-region OpenStack infrastructure.
    • We’ll cover the MAAS and juju layer to achieve OpenStack in a declarative way and then re-cycle juju with a different backend (OpenStack itself) to have a multiple Kubernetes setups that will be federated through KubeFed so to have the possibility to move the workload from a region to another.

It’s a Multi-Mesh World

  • Presented by Lee Calcote from SolarWinds.
  • What can you expect to learn?
    • Many audience members are challenged in their attempts to understand the details of working with different service meshes and the challenges they bring.
    • Using Meshery, demonstrations will be done in the context of the Service Mesh Interface, Hamlet, and the Service Mesh Performance Specification,  which are projects that most people do not have an understanding about and will benefit from, during this session.

Kata * TEE = A Lego-like Two-way Sandbox for Seamless Security and Privacy

  • Presented by Kailun Qin from Ant Group.
  • What can you expect to learn?
    • What are the container attack vectors at the Cloud and Edge? How about their implications over security and privacy? Where and why a two-way sandbox is needed?
    • What is a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE)? How it helps with protecting sensitive code and data in use?
    • What Kata Containers is and what it offers to boost security in containers at present?
    • How to leverage Kata with TEE technologies to build up your own two-way sandbox in a lego-like way? And what adaptions are needed for the relevant opensource projects like Kata Containers, rust-vmm etc.?
    • How the end-to-end ease and seamlessness of usage is achieved on orchestration platforms such as OpenStack and Kubernetes?
    • A PoC built on top of Kata, which showcases the seamless two-way isolation user experience and the lego-like developer experience.
    • An outline of the current status and next steps for upstream.
    • Practice experience within Ant Group.

Significance of Hardware Classification Combined with Host Configuration Operator

  • Presented by Digambar Patil from Calsoft Inc, John Williams from Dell EMC Inc., Sirisha Gopigiri.
  • What can you expect to learn?
    • Attendees will learn how to use hardware classification controller and host configuration operator to classify and configure nodes and clusters. Being an intermediate and technical presentation, this would be good opportunity for devops, day-1 and day-2 operations learning. This also shows how baremetal operators combined with Ironic provide inputs for CRD’s. The host classification part adds labels to BaremetalHost CR’s and host configuration operator will use these labels for configuring selected hosts and extending the operation.

The Best of Both Worlds: Running Highly Efficient Containers Inside High Performance VMs

  • Presented by Erez Cohen & Itay Ozery from Mellanox Technologies.
  • What can you expect to learn?
    • In a virtualized platform, the entity that dispatches packets between the network and the VMs (and between local VMs) is the virtual edge bridge (VEB) such as Open Virtual Switch (OVS), Linux Bridge, etc. Usually theses switches are implemented in software running in a hypervisor. Due to a software datapath, the VEB performance is either limited or consumes significant amount of CPU cores and cycles in order to perform reasonably well.
    • With virtualized container deployments, this performance degradation problem gets compounded even further due to an additional switching layer. Thus,  although virtualized containers offer great benefits they suffer with severe network performance degradation.
    • The presenters propose mechanisms to accelerate packet switching and processing and thus turbo boost networking performance of containers within VMs.

The Practice and Landing of Kata Containers in Ant Group and Alibaba Group

  • Presented by Fupan Li from Ant Group, Wei Yang from Alibaba Cloud.
