#DOXLON Mar 2017—Native, Distributed Storage For Kubernetes, and More

Posted by : David Gildeh | Meetup, DevOps Exchange London, DOXLON

Blog-Doxlon.pngIf you were unable to make the KubeCon Berlin, this is another opportunity to hear from Joseph Jacks, one of the founders of Kismatic (the enterprise Kubernetes company, now Apprenda), and a founder of KubeCon. Joseph discussed native, distributed storage for Kubernetes.

We also heard from Bobby DeVeaux, one of our favourite people in DevOps, who presented his most recent project, a production-ready scalable Docker Swarm using Terraform and Packer. Mangirdas Judeikis from Red Hat provided a deep dive to OpenShift and how it works with containers. Cameron Adams took us through how ITV have been using Docker & Selenium to reduce their build pipeline from 4 hours to 40 minutes.

NATIVE, DISTRIBUTED STORAGE FOR KUBERNETES
Joseph Jacks, Quantum 

Modern software storage systems are inherently complex. They are composed of numerous distributed components, require careful balancing of resources, and have stringent performance requirements. If you're running your applications in a public cloud, you're typically shielded from this complexity and can utilize managed storage services like EBS, S3 and EFS. If you're running on-premise, however, your choices are quite limited and typically result in using traditional big-iron storage systems.

In this talk, JJ walked through deploying and running a production-ready storage cluster using Kubernetes. Storage nodes can run as pods and enumerate the available storage devices within the cluster. JJ showed how some of the features of Kubernetes including controllers/operators, third-party resources, resource management, and rolling upgrades can lead to more powerful and resilient storage clusters.

OPENSHIFT FOR THE CORPORATE CONTAINERS DEVELOPER
Mangirdas Judeikis, Red Hat

Have you been using Docker or Docker and Kubernetes and wondered what OpenShift is and does? This is a grounds-up technical talk for developers interested in getting a first-hand drivethrough of OpenShift. Mangirdas covered:

• OpenShift vs. Kubernetes - what OpenShift does and what k8s doesn’t, and some myths broken
• Docker implementation and why it’s challenging to run native Docker in corporate environments
• Developer experience in highly controlled environments
• Corporate security and compliance
• Short demo of
 common use cases
• Dockerfile Build - How to build a Dockerfile using Docker and OpenShift
• How to run it, debug it, and get almost everything you get from Docker but in a controlled corporate environment.
• "I have code—run it, please". How to do it, and why it's good for your enterprise.
