Containers & Kubernetes - What's in it for me?

Many organizations today strives to adapt Containerization & Kubernetes. Much lesser really know though why they have to do it!

Increased Portability, Improved Scalability, Simple and Fast Deployment, Enhanced Productivity, Reduced Infrastructural Cost with Improved Resource Utilization - hard to disagree with the values the duo brings on table!

Although these potential benefits and pitfalls are discussed everywhere online, the Death by Flood of Information makes it harder to realize “What’s really in it for me?”.

Let’s make it easier! Let’s first understand the problem and then go step by step to see how it all fits together to solve those problems.

This session is meant to cover the fundamentals of Containers, Kubernetes and everything around it.

We will glance through the Container Runtimes, Orchestration Engines, Control Planes from Development, Operations and Security perspective but we will dig much deeper into Docker, CRI-O and Kubernetes.

We will also cover how an organization can approach the transformation into the world of Kubernetes & Containers across the horizons of Culture, Process & Technology .

Paradigm of Containers & Kubernetes is getting traction lately! Although a talk of town today, there have been a lot of confusion around the actual potential vs. pitfalls. Let’s get it all straighten up from ground zero to see why they aren’t avoidable today and what’s is in for me?
