The apps we’re constructing have gotten atomized: they’re fracturing into microservices and ultra-specific APIs. I’m excited that some of the attention-grabbing and influential teams of builders engaged on these apps shall be coming collectively to discover the paths ahead in software program subsequent week at KubeCon + CloundNativeCon 2021. I’ll be there with the Cisco workforce and I need to offer you a preview of what we’re trying ahead to discussing…and saying.
APIs, The Universe, and Every part
The flexibility to program an enormous software by piecing collectively companies from around the globe offers us unimaginable flexibility and agility. Nevertheless it additionally presents new issues, from API safety to observability. I shall be at KubeCon to debate this problem and to introduce APIClarity, a brand new open supply program supported by Cisco. APIClarity supplies observability throughout all API calls made out of a cloud native software, matches them to their meant specification, and flags drifts, zombie (deprecated) and shadow (undocumented) APIs, amongst different issues.
APIClarity, out there on Github, shall be a great tool that can assist you carry on prime of the libraries of APIs you employ, and to maintain your functions safer. I’m pleased with the contributions we’ve made to the APIClarity open supply neighborhood and blissful to be working with our preliminary companions on it, API Metrics and 42Crunch. I sit up for demonstrating the challenge to you. Don’t miss my keynote at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon on October 13 beginning at 10:05am PST.
Register now for the convention (if you happen to haven’t already)!
On the convention, we’ll even be speaking about SecureCN, Cisco’s complete instrument for container, Kubernetes, and API safety. SecureCN consists of APIClarity capabilities. My workforce shall be demonstrating each APIClarity and SecureCN on the Safe demo station in Cisco’s sales space at KubeCon. In case you can’t make it in particular person, take a look at the free trial of SecureCN.
Don’t Miss Cisco’s Breakout Periods
We’ll have extra nice technical classes on the convention, too:
Edge Machine Studying for the Web of Issues
Our senior options architect Asheesh Goja will suggest a novel method to constructing Synthetic Intelligence of Issues (AIoT) functions utilizing Kubernetes.
Utilizing an illustrative reference structure, the discuss will clarify emergent AIoT behaviors and structure patterns. He’ll have a demo simulating an industrial IoT setting the place sensors measure circumstances in real-time and feed these information to an edge machine. The machine makes use of a TPU accelerator to use logistical regression to foretell future gear breakdown. You will notice how ML pipelines measure drift and re-train and re-deploy the mannequin. Be part of us on October 14 at 11:55am PST.
Utilizing Calico’s dataplanes
The Calico VPP dataplane, launched ultimately yr’s KubeCon, provides a brand new networking choice for Calico on Linux alongside iptables and eBPF. This takes benefit of Calico’s pluggable dataplane assist, which presents future-proofing and agility for the consumer in dataplane decisions. Having VPP’s versatile and modular userspace networking stack in a Kubernetes atmosphere permits all kinds of attention-grabbing issues — similar to permitting network-intensive pods to ship and obtain information at ludicrous speeds whereas conserving the CNI options we love, due to kernel bypass.
On this discuss, we’ll present you ways we obtain that, the extent of efficiency that we will attain, and the way it compares to different approaches.Be part of Cisco software program engineer Aloys Augustin and Tigera Developer Advocate Chris Tompkins, October 15 at 11:55am PST.
Constructing a good and reliable ML pipeline
On this discuss, Cisco product managers Meenakshi Kaushik and Neelima Mukiri will talk about including trustworthiness and equity to multi-cloud Kubeflow workflows. An summary of accountable and honest AI will result in two demos: Utilizing open supply instruments like MinDiff and Tensorflow for honest mannequin studying; and together with equity as a parameter in HyperParameter utilizing Kubeflow. Speak begins Friday, October 15, 4:30pm PST
Intro to the Cloud Native Operate (CNF) Working Group
The CNF Working Group recommends finest practices for networking functions that run on Kubernetes. On this session, we’ll introduce the Working Group, together with how the workforce features and what it produces. We’ll talk about instance tasks and describe how one can participation and contribute to the CNF Working Group.
Be part of CNF WG co-chairs Ian Wells (Cisco), Jeffrey Saelens (Constitution Communications), and Taylor Capenter (Vulk), October 15 at 5:35pm PST.
Extra to see and study
We even have talks at occasions which can be co-located with KubeCon and going down earlier than the bodily KubeCon even kicks off:
At GitOpsCon, see Gitopsify Mobile Structure on October 12 at 9:30am to listen to from Ayush Ghosh of Cisco and Sergey Sergeev of AppD (a part of Cisco). They’ll discover how mobile structure and Gitops collectively can assist create an independently deployable, manageable, and observable answer for constructing and managing data-intensive microservices.
Ayush Ghosh and Sergey Sergeev are additionally at ServiceMeshCon, giving a associated discuss referred to as Check in Prod with Canary Every part on October 12 at 2:20pm. Come to this session to find out about utilizing Service Mesh and Gitops to maneuver from operating a number of, costly, non-prod and inconsistent environments to testing in manufacturing. They’ll talk about utilizing Istio together with a customized Envoy filter to run account-based canary in manufacturing.
Cisco can have a lot for you at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon, together with deep dives into containerization instruments in 4 zones in our in-person sales space: Create, Join, Safe, and Observe. See our Cisco at KubeCon web page for a full lineup of what we’ll be showcasing.
I sit up for seeing you at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon, both in particular person or on-line. Till then, take a look at extra of the Open Supply tasks that Cisco is concerned in.
