Discover the Future of Cloud Native Computing with VSHN at KubeCon Paris

29. Feb 2024

Next month, KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Paris 2024 will serve as a focal point for Cloud Native professionals, enthusiasts, and pioneers from all over Europe. We are excited to be a part of this great event, and we’re poised to make a significant impact through a series of engaging contributions.

The Cloud Native Dance: MLOps on Kubernetes

At the heart of VSHN’s participation is a presentation by our CMO, Annie Talvasto, titled “KubeDDR! A Dance of Predictive Scoring with MLOps, Step by Step”. Scheduled for Friday at 14:00, and presented together with Leigh Capili from Broadcom, this talk will mark the point where dance floors meet cutting-edge technology. Attendees will learn how AI-driven image recognition works, how to forecast dance scores, and how Kubernetes seamlessly orchestrates ML model deployments. Annie will offer invaluable perspectives for anyone vested in the future of MLOps and cloud infrastructure.

K8up: Our Kubernetes-Native Backup Solution

Our KubeCon adventure continues at our kiosk, where we will showcase K8up, our pioneering backup solution for Kubernetes, now part of the larger CNCF technology landscape. As an official CNCF project, K8up addresses the critical need for reliable, scalable backup solutions in a Kubernetes environment. This is a must-visit for attendees seeking to enhance their infrastructure’s resilience and efficiency.

The KubeTrain Journey: An Unforgettable Experience

Adding a unique twist to their journey, VSHNeers will be traveling to the conference aboard the KubeTrain, departing on the 18th of March from Zürich Hauptbahnhof at 13:34, calling at Basel, Mulhouse, and Dijon, finally arriving to Paris Gare de Lyon at 17:38.

That same evening, starting at 19:00, we will be sponsoring the exclusive KubeTrain Party at the Fitzroy Restaurant. This event promises to be another highlight of the conference! You’ll have unique networking opportunities, following our commitment to fostering community engagement. To join the festivities, the community is invited to use the voucher code INVITEDBYVSHN, securing a chance to network, learn, and celebrate with fellow DevOps enthusiasts.

Sponsoring Collaboration and Innovation

Our dedication to the DevOps community extends further through their participation to key networking events at KubeCon. We will attend the Isovalent Hive Mind Mingle on Tuesday 19th, and the following day we’ll be sponsoring the Swiss Apéro. Join us at those events to foster collaboration, share insights, and celebrate the vibrant Swiss community surrounding Kubernetes and Cloud Native technologies.

Join Us in Shaping the Future

KubeCon Paris is more than just a conference; it’s a meeting of ideas, innovation, and community. VSHNeers invite you to join them in this exciting journey. Whether you’re drawn by the insights of Annie, intrigued by the capabilities of K8up, or looking to engage with the community aboard the KubeTrain or through the sponsored events, there’s something for everyone.

Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with us VSHNeers! Visit the K8up booth, discover how we can support your Kubernetes and DevOps business, and engage with a team that’s at the forefront of shaping the future of cloud computing.

This service is designed to change the way you manage and operate your containerized applications, giving you the peace of mind you deserve.

The Challenge: Your Applications, Our Expertise

You’ve invested in developing containerized individual software, and the concept of DevOps sounds promising. However, the operational aspect of DevOps can be a daunting task, one that developers often prefer to avoid. The round-the-clock responsibility can be taxing.

  • Lack of Internal Readiness: Your team might not be prepared for the 24/7 cloud operation, and acquiring the necessary expertise can be challenging.
  • Outdated CI/CID Environments: you may have outdated build and deployment environments which make cloud-native development difficult for you.
  • Lack of Knowledge: Navigating the complexities of container platforms can be overwhelming, making it difficult to make the right technology choices.
  • Cloud-Native Technology Landscape: The cloud-native technology landscape is vast and intricate, making it challenging to select the right tools.
  • Resource and Time Demands: Implementing and maintaining CI/CD, platform, and observability can be resource-intensive and time-consuming.

Our Services and Your Benefit: Hassle-Free Application Operation

gepardec-run, powered by VSHN, offers an array of services to tackle these challenges head-on:

  • 24/7 Technical Operation: We take the responsibility of keeping your applications up and running on our Red Hat OpenShift platform, provided by VSHN.

VSHN.timer #180: What Happened at KubeCon 2023?

24. Apr 2023

Welcome to another VSHN.timer! Every Monday, 5 links related to Kubernetes, OpenShift, CI / CD, and DevOps; all stuff coming out of our own chat system, making us think, laugh, or simply work better.

This week we’re going to talk about the most interesting stories of the latest KubeCon+CloudNativeCon 2023 last week in Amsterdam.

1. Last week at KubeCon was the world premiere of “Inside Envoy: The Proxy for the Future”, the Envoy project documentary, now available for everyone to watch online. The film narrates the journey from inception to adoption of the fast-rising and industry changing edge and service proxy.

2. The Cloud Native Glossary aims to make the cloud native space–which is notorious for its complexity–simpler by making it easier to understand, not only for technologists but also for those on the business side.

3. The CNCF introduced the Spring 2023 class of Cloud Native Ambassadors, and at VSHN we’re very proud to have a VSHNneer among the ambassadors as well. Congratulations to all!

4. The CNCF announced that Mercedes-Benz Tech Innovation GmbH has won the CNCF End User Award in recognition of its achievements in cloud native development and notable contributions to the cloud native ecosystem. Congratulations!

5. We were proud and happy to talk to people about K8up, our beloved Kubernetes backup operator, at the project kiosk! Not only that, but we published a short video introducing K8up, have you seen it?
