KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2022 simply acquired began in Valencia Spain! And we’re right here with the most recent buzz, keynote data, and Cloud Unfiltered interviews—from Day 1 of the convention. We’ll be again tomorrow with extra!
An API gateway is basically…a bouncer on the discotheque, [who] must test your ID, [who] must test that you’re the age the place it is possible for you to to drink. Identical factor with API gateways.
– Vik Gamov on Cloud Unfiltered
The one factor that we hold listening to time and again is that it’s nice to see everybody in-person once more. We missed one another.
On a extra technical be aware, we’re listening to rather a lot about eBPF, a know-how that may run sandboxed packages in a privileged context (just like the working system kernel). Permitting this form of extension to the working system at runtime allows a number of next-generation use instances, together with networking, observability, and safety performance.
One other know-how mentioned usually at KubeCon: OpenTelemetry (OTel). OTel is a set of APIs, SDKs, tooling, and integrations which might be designed for the creation and administration of telemetry information. The mission is vendor-agnostic and might ship telemetry information to the platform of your selection.
Priyanka Sharma, Government Director of CNCF, kicked off the convention with opening remarks overlaying the state of CNCF, KubeCon + CloudNativeCon, and several other accomplice initiatives, talking to over 7,000 in-person attendees and 10,000 digital attendees.
Igor Dvoretskyi, a long-time KubeCon attendee from Ukraine, shared personally concerning the present scenario in his residence nation. Razom for Ukraine additionally shared about the way it has been responding to the disaster there. For extra data on what CNCF is doing, try the CNCF Ukraine web page.
Different organizations which offered keynote addresses embrace Boeing, Disney, Mercedes-Benz, Intel, and Huawei.
Cloud Unfiltered Interviews
Now we have a full slate of Cloud Unfiltered interviews from Day 1, overlaying the whole lot from API gateways to machine studying to “chaos engineering.”
Vik Gamov (Kong)
First, we talked with Vik Gamov (Principal Developer Advocate at Kong) about API gateways. We coated what an API gateway is, the necessity for API gateways, how they relate to a service mesh, and extra. With the proliferation of microservices, there may be an growing want for a method to handle these providers, deal with routing logic, and tackle cross-cutting considerations. API gateways can improve the effectivity and reliability of your suite of providers.
Take heed to the complete episode.
Matthew LeRay (Speedscale)
We additionally met up with Matthew LeRay (CTO at Speedscale) and mentioned the necessity for API testing within the CI/CD pipeline. Whereas software testing has grown in recognition, API testing continues to be usually seen as a handbook course of. It doesn’t need to be this fashion; we will now seize manufacturing visitors and feed that into an automatic testing suite for our take a look at and staging environments. This enables us to check not simply particular person providers, however the entire interconnected ecosystem of providers too.
Take heed to the complete episode.
Julie Gunderson and Jason Yee (Gremlin)
Julie Gunderson (Senior Reliability Advocate at Gremlin) and Jason Yee (Director of Advocacy at Gremlin) got here on the podcast to debate the function of chaos engineering in improvement. Chaos engineering is the follow of proactively experimenting on our methods to find out their reliability. This might imply injecting failure, testing scale, and even testing human processes.
Dejan Golubovic (CERN)
We had an opportunity to talk with Dejan Golubovic (Junior Fellow at CERN) about AI, machine studying, and the petabytes of information that they course of with their clusters. Dejan additionally shared about what it’s prefer to work at CERN and the way they scale their infrastructure utilizing KubeFlow.
Take a look at the complete episode.
Sebastien Goasguen (TriggerMesh)
For our final interview of the day, we spoke with Sebastien Goasguen (CTO at TriggerMesh) to find out about what’s new in eventing and the way it pertains to Features-as-a-Service (FaaS). FaaS is nice for getting small bits of logic into the cloud with out overhead, however what causes that operate to run? That’s the place eventing and triggers are available in. One instance of that is event-driven safety notifications. Along with FaaS, there may be a complete ecosystem of distributed providers and packages, all of which must set off different providers and react in actual time.

Subsequent Steps for Cloud Native Professionals
Cisco additionally introduced free tier sign-ups for its new, revolutionary suite of instruments for cloud native professionals:
- Calisti: A service mesh supervisor that helps you receive an end-to-end view of your complete service community.
- Telescope: A cloud native software troubleshooting device for streamlining fault detection and system well being.
- Panoptica: A safe software cloud so as to add strong safety visibility and evaluation throughout your purposes.
Every device is open source-based and enterprise-grade, designed that can assist you together with your cloud native purposes deployed to multi-cloud or hybrid-cloud platforms.
We’re simply getting began with our KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2022 protection. Keep tuned for extra updates from Day 2 tomorrow!
KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2022 is the flagship convention of the Cloud Native Computing Basis, gathering collectively main open supply and cloud native communities to additional the schooling and development of cloud native computing. This yr, the convention is being held in Valencia, Spain from Could 16-20, 2022.
