VSHN.timer #222: Videos from KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2024

25. Mar 2024

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 highlight some outstanding recordings of talks presented last week at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2024.

1. Artificial Intelligence: generative AI and LLMs get lots of attention lately, but many are still figuring out how to most effectively use them in Cloud Native platforms. This video explains how to deploy AI models on Kubernetes with tools such as the Kubernetes toolchain operator KAITO, to simplify training and inferencing for LLMs.


2. Maintenance: validating cluster add-on upgrades securely and confidently across a Kubernetes fleet of clusters poses a significant challenge for platform teams. This session demonstrates advanced techniques for both validating and deploying these upgrades, with a focus on securing infrastructure and streamlining operational workflows using ephemeral virtual clusters or “vClusters“.


3. Security: this talk is an exploration into Yahoo’s year-long integration journey of Sigstore, enhancing Supply Chain Security through verifiable “certificates of origin” for artifacts. Despite the challenges of scaling Sigstore in a high-traffic environment, the Paranoids (Yahoo’s information security organization) successfully secured around 60,000 daily builds, spanning 700 clusters and 100,000 pods.


4. Storage: this talk is an introduction to Rook, an open source cloud-native storage operator for Kubernetes. The panel will discuss various scenarios to show how Rook configures Ceph to provide stable block, shared file system, and object storage for your production data. Rook was accepted as a graduated project by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation in October 2020.


5. Culture: in today’s dynamic digital landscape, the reliability and resilience of complex systems are critical for delivering seamless user experiences. Chaos Engineering has emerged as a powerful discipline for proactively identifying and mitigating potential system weaknesses. This talk delves into the synergy between Chaos and Platform Engineering, presenting a paradigm shift in how organizations can enhance their platform engineering practices by leveraging chaos-first principles.
