Container Stack 2019 at FIFA World Football Museum Zurich

On January 30th and 31st 2019, the Container Stack, a two-day event on Kubernetes with one day of workshops and one day of conference, took place for the first time at the FIFA World Football Museum Zurich. VSHN was co-sponsor of the event.

Led by industry professionals, the conference brought together users and representatives of the ecosystem and the CNCF community. A good mix of user reports from experts from the pharmaceutical, banking, media and research sectors, as well as representatives of the global Kubernetes and CNCF ecosystems, presented their experiences and approaches to the challenges of large native cloud architectures.

Experts from the fields of Networking Layer, Storage Layer, Packaging Layer and Professional Services have shared their know-how and brought their global expertise closer to the audience.

Conclusion Container Stack 2019

The VSHNeers were enthusiastic about the first edition of the Container Stack. Exciting talks, top speakers and an interested audience. In any case, we would be happy if the Container Stack would take place again next year. Many thanks to the organizers.

What is Kubernetes and who is CNCF?

After Linux, Kubernetes is the largest open source project in the world and the de facto standard for container orchestration and the management of distributed applications. Kubernetes automates the setup, operation and scaling of containerized applications and is a project of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). VSHN is the first Kubernetes Certified Service Provider (KCSP) in Switzerland.
